This guesthouse is the best of it kind I’ve stayed at. The highlight is the food which is absolutely excellent. The rooms are spacious and very clean. I’ve been traveling to this area for years and this was my first visit. I will simply not stay in another place ever again.
I only stayed at Chrome Valley Lodge for one night, but is was rather impressed with the lodge. The units are well equipped. The rooms are very comfortable and there is secure parking. The dining area is a little understaffed though. The location of the lodge could not be better, it is on the doorstep of many of the mines which suited me very well for my early morning visit. One may say it is a tad too close to the mines as the units on the outskirts are not sheltered from the 24hr a day operation of the local chrome operation. This being said it was not at all overbearing nor kept me awake :). I will certainly be using Chrome Valley Lodge again when i am in the area.
Chrome Valley Lodge is situated very close to a number of operating mines in the area, which makes is a perfect choice of you need to spend time in the area for work. The lodge is really nice, with the various units being spread out over the grounds, either around the pool or very close to the pool and restaurant area. The food at the restaurant was good. Lunch was a la Carte while dinner was a choice of either a buffet or a la Carte. We are off the menu. The quality was really good. Nice bar area with both an inside and outside area. Conference facility available. Service was good.
Don't expect much. Clean rooms, yes. Service, smile, can we help? - definitely not. A rough, dusty noisy place and not much more. Next time I will try something else. Directions are poor and security just opens the gate.
What a nice comfortable place, friendly staff, great food yet limited menu. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. The grounds are rustic and well maintained. The mine noise in the background at night takes getting used too particularly if you are a light sleeper. My only disappointment is the fact that there is no free wifi you have to purchase a voucher that is rather expensive for what you get and the speed is super slow. Overall experience - will stay there again
