This is a clean, safe, and reasonably comfortable place to rest your head. We stayed here as the location chosen by our travel organizer (Exoticca) for our stay during 2 days on safari in Kruger National Park. The property is aged and not fancy, but again, it is clean and sufficient. Bathroom provisions are minimal, so if face cloths, shampoo, mouthwash, hairdryers, etc, are necessary for your comfort, it would be important to bring your own if you choose this accommodation. All of the staff we interacted with were efficient with their work. Several went above and beyond in terms of customer service - including Alfred in the bar and Lunghi in the restaurant. The grounds are well maintained, with many pretty spots to sit and enjoy the outdoors. Overall, I can say that I would return and would recommend this hotel to any traveler desiring a moderate and modest place to stay in this area.

The excellent staff is what makes this place. They always went above and beyond. I went for a run in the morning around the football pitches - the housekeeping staff cleaned the grass and dirt off my running shoes which I never would have expected or asked for.

Breakfast and a couple dinner buffets were included with our package. The food was always fresh and hot.

The only reason it's not 5 stars is because the room needed a little help. We were in G7 and one of the lamps was missing a light bulb and one of the ceiling lights was out. They said maintenance would come fix it but they never did. Also, in the bathroom there was only one tiny light which is located between in the shower stall and sink. It's not enough light and we felt we were showering in the dark. The shower tile could use an upgrade as well.

The room had a nice patio and overlooked a pond with a couple chairs. It was great to sit outside and relax but we wished the door to the patio had a screen so we could enjoy the weather and not use the A/C. We did leave the door open for a few minutes but some mosquitos and a little lizard got inside so we closed it.

We didn't end up needing to go, but there were Ubers available to get into town for a trip to the grocery store or restaurant if needed. It was less than a ten minute trip to town.

Although the hotel is very big all the maximum 2 storey buildings fit perfectly in the nice garden and surroundings. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the staff is vety helpful. The restaurant offers a great choice for everybody and the food was excellent.

Staff is very friendly, with no exception whatsoever. The family room we had booked was a bit old fashioned, with luxaflex that needed to be replaced and sofa cushions that were far too soft. Nevertheless, the place was clean, the beds were excellent, the grounds were well-kept and a pleasure to walk in, the swimming pool was nice. We have no reason to complain, on the contrary.

The room was decrepit. Dirty. Dark. Disappointing. The tile on the shower floor is buckled and sloped, making it slick and dangerous when water pools. The shower walls are full of visible mold. The sheets and comforter had brown dirt between them, and when I asked for clean sheets they were just tossed on my suitcase. Some days I had soap; other days they took it and didn’t replace it. The doors are falling apart, with chunks missing. The sliding glass door on the first floor has no safety dowel rod. I’ve traveled the world, including a number of rural areas in countries such as Honduras, and never stayed in a worse place.

That being said, the dining staff was so very kind, and the food was wonderful. The grounds were lovely too, lush and well kept. But the rooms need to be bulldozed and built over.

We offer our sincerest apologies, for the obvious fall of standards, and will be addressing these with upcoming renovations.

Excellent location, serene environment. Staff really friendly and helpful. Overall stay was very satisfactory. Would consider to bring the family for a long weekend. Breakfast could be more elaborated, not a fixed menu, although what was available was fresh and delectable.

We recently stayed at the lodge. We booked 6 room and all paid the same price. 4 tooms are beautiful and neat. However two rooms was allocated in the old section. Aircon doesn't work. Towels were torn, but after complaining was replaced. Only one face towel for 2 people. No glasses in the room. When the aircon in the one room worked it leaked water onto electrical outlets. When there was a conference at the lodge there were no parking available for our car. I will never stay at the lodge again or refer any clients, family or friends.

We stayed for three nights in April 2024 as part of a tour group arranged by Exoticca, through their local partner, Amazing Africa.

We found this to be an excellent hotel to stay in for a few nights. The staff were all very friendly and helpful throughout, delivering first class service.

The rooms were clean and sizeable, with comfortable beds with plenty of space. The shower opens onto the rest of the room, which didn't bother us but may be slightly disconcerting to those wanting to protect their modesty. We had a buffet for breakfast and dinner. The food was tasty with a good selection, including local dishes. There was also a good selection of reasonable priced drinks in the bar and restaurant.

Large, conference style property. Other reviews complained about rooms - they were large & updated (showers were not). Walking to & from meals was problematic for my elder parents: brick lots in disrepair & dark. Staff supported them with a wheelchair which was very helpful.

Close to Kruger, but imagine many other options.

Nice looking hotel in the pictures. The pool whilst looking big is only 1m to 1.1m deep so not quite the Olympic experience. Well equipped gym but our room keys didn’t open the door. Good breakfast and evening buffet. The outside bbq dinner the meat was very dry. Rooms clean and spacious with Wi-Fi, kettle, fridge. We were a large group but none of us had a working safe. Well placed for the Kruger park.
