I was just sad that the pool was green as would have liked a dip. Apparently the rains off the thatch roof over the pool causes this but I think in December which is a busy time this should be looked at ore carefully as a blue pool is a selling point. The older members of our party were particularly impressed with the new manageress who ensured our every need was met. Our waiter for the 2 days - Justice - was very good

I am always welcomed and looked after like a family friend. All the staff greet me with a friendly smile and are only too happy to arrange whatever I need. For the last 20 years I have been pleased to stay at the Lodge whenever I have been working in the area.

The bathroom wall was cracked. Thats why I rate the room as terrible. The service was very good. The staff is frienly and helpful. The TV channels did nof work. Please consider putting information booklets in the rooms. The staff uniform is not very appealing. Especially the male staff. Please consider giving then moreformal uniforms which shows the difference between waiters and general workers.

Reception staff were disinterested when we checked in and rude when we checked out. When we queried variance in prices of food items over consecutive days, we were told that was the price because of the resort's location on the river and to discourage certain clientele from visiting the lodge. Service provided by waitrons was very disappointing. We won't return.

Nice place, have visited several times. Some walls fixing is required, our room has terrible cracks, very scary. Did not like bar chairs in our room, not suitable for bedrooms. Hot water kettles not properly cleaned, have bad stains, was afraid to make tea using the kettle, it's very dirty. Massage was excellent.

We booked the Honeymoon Suite as something special. When we checked in the room is dark, dank, old and stank of damp. The wooden windows had rotten away, the paint is peeling, just awful. We I asked reception if they had another room and they kindly moved us to the presidential suit, pretty much the same as above, minus the damp smell. The hotel was at one point in its life lovely and well cared for, now it’s just tired and an awful place to stay. Supper was served in the thatch building on the river. The staff couldn’t have cared less about us, playing their own loud music as chatting loudly like they were at a party. Rubbish was strewn all over the floor and not one person attempted to pick it up. The food was terrible and most of the menu was unavailable. Breakfast was the same uninspiring slop. We won’t be retuning!!

We overnighted here after a party held close by and were just expecting a comfortable bed but we wished we had more time to spend here once we arrived as the location on the river is incredible. The room was exceptionally comfortable (sophisticated decor - albeit not to my taste with its heavy and dark interiors) The staff were friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed dinner items from the room service. We were leaving early the following morning so needed to have breakfast at 7h00 but the food hadmt yet been set out at 7h15 so we left without eating but it was a Sunday Morning so I will forgive them

The staff at the reception, bar and restaurant were extremely efficient, very friendly and gave the best service. The views are amazing since it overlooks the Vaal river from the seating area. The rooms are clean, has aircons and private bathrooms. The breakfast provided is tasty. There were no faults that I have experienced whatsoever.

Functional rooms with necessary amenities and comfort.
Excellent service and friendly staff that are always available to cater to your needs and make you feel comfortable. Stunning views of the Vaal river, especially the sunset with a mocktail or cup of tea.

The lodge is a bit dated, it could do with new carpets and bathrooms. There was a bath (which I prefer) but only a hand held shower for those who want to shower, the hand held shower head also did not work properly. No counter space in the bathroom.

Breakfast and lunch was very nice.
