My Husband won 4 Luxury Rooms for a 2 night stay of R2800... When I called to make reservations, I distinctively asked the lady weather breakfast was included or not she said that it definitely is included, which I feel was reasonable due to the Voucher's worth... When we arrived there we were told that breakfast was not included. We never felt welcome there at all...we asked if we could use the fire pit during the day to prepare lunch and the guy distinctively said that we could, right after we started the manager who wasn't very friendly said that we need to pack up and leave because it was not allowed, That is not what we were told when we asked if we were allowed to use the pit! The experience was horrible to say the least, I don't want to play the race card but it surely felt like we did not belong. We were so excited for this experience for it to have turned out the way it did.

Great place with a great view. Only 5 minutes away from the park entrance, very nice evenings cooking BBQ while watching the great view. Rooms are spacious and clean. Only negative thing, the market was pretty much empty.

The accommodation was very comfortable, but the restaurant and shop were mediocre. I was was served the toughest steak I have ever had. It was replaced by a much better one, but still very disappointing. Service was friendly and willing, if slow.

We camped at the Lodge for three nights. The only gripe we have is the quality of the water. When you have a shower, it feel as if you are always full of soap due to the high salt content of the water. There is nothing the lodge can do about this, but worth a mention. The private ablutions were an absolute blessing is these times of Covid and we really enjoyed the facilities. The deli was well stocked and we loved the "mosbolletjies" on sale and bought wood there for our braais every day. Beware of thick sand if you do not use a 4x4. Deflate your tyres before going to your site and safe yourself the hassle of possibly getting stuck. It is really a very short drive to the Park. Remember to book a spot as a day visitor well in advance as only 20 vehicles per day are allowed. The lodge offers everything to keep wifey a happy camper. Money well spent. Enjoyed our time there and will came back with our grown kids to show them what they are missing!

Being an accredited 4 star self catering I expect that the basics should be attended to. Dish cloths and washing up cloths needs to be replaced. They sell them at a 200% markup in thier shop. Meat is not priced so you get a surprise after paying noticing that you just paid R160 per kg for sausage from a local butcher. Good location, friendly staff but you do pay a premium price to stay here and you also spend extra money here so they should pick up their standard.

We were two couples travelling together and we were given #29 - a lovely chalet with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. very nicely decorated and everything you could want - sadly we did not have enough time there - next time would stay at least two nights to enjoy the accommodation. Dinner was good and the welcome very friendly. Would definitely recommend and we will stay again someday.

Highly recommend this place we had a hiccup on arrival where they had double booked the luxury villa meaning we were put in a room we didnt book however they offered an extra room as compensation. The standard villas are more than fine and I would book again. Very friendly staff restaurant is very nice and a great gemsbok beer on tap, pool provides a great place to cool off in the afternoon talking to guests about animal sightings. The double booking was the only reason I didnt give 5 stars
