We were on route to Nelspruit this morning and decided to support your restaurant. I was disgusted by your no-tolerance for dogs! As soon as we saw your sign, Gillian went in to get takeaways. I took our chocolate lab for a short walk. We put Nutmeg back in the car and we drove to the parking lot opposite the filling station where the security parks to eat our takeaways. Your security came over to inform us that we are not welcome to park there and did not show the slightest bit of hospitality. This was despite there being hardly anyone there at that time of the day. We left and ate on the side of the road somewhere. It's the last time you will see us.

Hi there. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We appreciate that your preference is to travel with your pet and we ourselves count many passionate animal lovers amongst our number, but we hope you can also appreciate our aim to provide a suitable holiday environment for all guests, that maintains a high standard of cleanliness and protects the naturally-occurring flora and fauna on the property; something that is difficult to maintain without imposing certain restrictions, such as the allowance of pets. This is not abnormal in the hospitality industry. Your concern regarding our Security Team was noted and Management has taken up the matter with the relevant personnel. We appreciate your feedback and trust you enjoyed the rest of your trip to Nelspruit. Kind Regards – The Sudwala Lodge Team

Our cycling weekend at Mankele Bike Park turned out to be a great holiday, thanx to Sudwala lodge, where we could swim, go for walks, dine at the restaurant. They really spoilt us as they made a boma fire for us, we had a lovely braai by the river, they set the tables nicely.....everyone was extremely helpful, friendly, went out of their way to accomodate our needs and wishes.
