This place is really gross. The furniture is old chinese furniture, bedding has holes, TV is busted, ants & spiders all over the room. The guy who took me to my room had his mask on his chin. I even took photos, but nowhere to upload on this review.

My husband and I plus our 3 kids enjoyed our stay here.

The rooms could do with an upgrade - everything works but they feel a bit dated.

The scenery is lovely - beautiful location. We really enjoyed use of the guests only pool.

Breakfast was excellent - large variety of food to choose from. Our only complaint was that dinner took too long on the 3 nights we ate there. The food took over an hour to arrive each day. However, when it eventually arrived it was always great, well prepared and tasty.

Stayed for a weekend with family and the place is nice with great pools, nice view of the lake, nice greens, good food especially breakfast and the dinner braai buffet. However, the rooms need a bit of a face lift, the aircon is old and noisy, the TVs didn't work and no proper reason was given. Overall, a good place to relax from.

My husband and I fairly enjoyed our short holiday. I really enjoyed our the food i.e the breakfast and supper the day we arrived. The rooms are very nice with a nice view. Unfortunately, there was no soap or small toothpaste in the bathroom. Being a place with mosquitoes, repellant should be available in the rooms.

When I first entered the room I wasn’t really impressed. It could have been cleaner I thought. The pillow cases looked to be dirty and it appeared the room wasn’t deep cleaned. That said, I fell in love with the place there after. The maid came in and did a very good job cleaning every day. The view was fabulous. The breakfast very tasty. I would definitely recommend this place however I would tell them it’s a white knuckle ride for about 125 km on the way to the lodge.

Travelled for a family vacation with other couples towards end of March 2024 during holidays. We were received well with the reception staff making us feel at home.

The rooms were very clean and tidy. The food was very good and surroundings very appealing.

They have two nice swimming pools-one for guests and another for the general public. Somehow water is warmer in the evening and it was very enjoyable swimming in the evening.

Enjoyed a private sunset cruise organised by the lodge. It was beautiful-the highlight of our stay.

Our kids had a lot of fan.

We were nicely supprised!!!

The photos on the website do not tell half the story.
