The owner is a gentleman who was available at all times to meet our needs at every turn. The view is as breathtaking as advertised and we were supplied with enough wood to build many bond fires. An excellent stop over for a night or two at which you will feel vary much at home.

Stayed inbthe family unit. Clean and the staff working there were great. The people that managed/owned were unfriendly and we didn't feel welcome at all.

Although the views were nice we were not able to feel comfortable here. We felt like we were and inconvenience. Will find an alternative option next time I come through the area.

Response from Louise Wiese, Owner at Fish Eagle Lodge
Responded 24 Oct 2022
Dear Garth Your review starts with unwelcome and uncomfortable. I really think the comments from you is about.... -You carried the sitting room couch outside, you and your lovely partner, enjoying the view - both with your feet on the couch......... I simply asked you in n nice mannered way not to take the sitting room furniture outside. There are numerous garden sets for the guest to enjoy around the swimming pool. Should the chairs at your unit not be up to your standard. I know that one of those you would have found comfortable. We work hard and try our best to give good service and value for money. Your review is not fair and rather reflect more about the fact that you were asked not to take the unit's furniture outside. For future reference, if you have such a bad experience at any place of Accommodation, kindly talk to the owners and sort the problems. Do not bring damage to their place of business with such a nonsense review, because you are ticked-off like a child, for being asked not to do something, witch in my mind, is not the way most of us were brought up anyway!

Booked two rooms for 11th December. Both rooms were booked as en-suite. Upon arrival the owner was not there, and the Lady who helped us could not find our booking. Eventually, I found it by looking at a load of 'scribbles' in a book and our booking was referred to by first name only and in very poor handwriting, so was hard for me to find also. The book was right next to a laptop so why the laptop was not referred to I do not know. Upon eventually being shown to our rooms, my room (Room 1) was NOT en-suite. There was a toilet, hand basin and shower cubicle across the corridor, which simply had a 'Toilet' sign on the door. I was not happy about this as this was obviously also intended as a public toilet for general guests. When we complained, we were told that the lodge was full so no other rooms were available. The owner eventally arrived and shouted down her cell phone to someone in the corridor which woke me up from a nap after my long drive. I then wanted a beer later that afternoon, and there was total confusion of what was available at the small bar area which looked like a prison with all the security bars around it. Whilst having a beer, other guests arrived, and again, the owner was nowhere to be seen, and again, the new guests could not seem to ascertain what rooms they were booked into. We were then told that there would be no breakfast the following morning, after having paid R100 each in advance. We were told that the R200 would be refunded, but as the owner was again nowhere to be seen the following morning upon checking out, we had to wait whilst one of the staff members went to find the owner. The owner was on site but chose not to speak to us in person, just relaying our refund via a member of staff. All of the rooms open out to the enclosed pool area and guest sitting areas, so if you want a peaceful night, then you had better hope that other guests are not having a party in the pool area right outside your room! Generally speaking, a very poor experience and we will not be stayng there again.

We stayed for 3 nights at this lodge. The owner is very friendly as well as the staff. Rooms are very comfortable and clean. The indoor pool is heated and the entertainment area great to relax in with a book. We truly enjoyed our stay and will be back forsure

Nice place to overnight on the way to the Cape with a family. The kids enjoyed the indoor pool. Aircons in the flat/rooms were a very welcomed relief from the intense heat. The view of the dam was amazing. Would definitely recommend.
