In the forest

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 04 Sept 2021
Great setting right in the forest. No curtains on the windows as you are in the forest with no-one able to look in. Even the shower and toilet has a forest view. Rooms 1 and 2 are part of the main reception area so could be disturbed by the kitchen, guests, reception phone calls? The lounge, dining and pool area are very good with enough space for everyone. The wifi does not reach rooms 3 & 4, and cell phone reception was also not great (could be service provider dependent? The included breakfast was okay, nothing too special. The dinner was a bit cold and home cooking style. We managed to get a half price special, not sure we would have been happy to pay full price. There is a great walk down to the river (very steep back up though!). Very close to Monkeyland, Birds of Eden and Elephant Sanctuary.

      We had a fabulous time staying at Trogon House! Harry, Wonderful and Marco were always ready with a smile and a helpful attitude. Bruce’s food and friendly nature was super pleasant! The staff made our stay here fantastic. Over and above that, the location is exquisite. Peaceful and tranquil…can’t ask for better. Thank you!!

      My husband and I decided to get away for a few days and this was our first stop on our trip.
      What an amazing find.
      We stayed in the honeymoon suite, nestled right into the forest. So peaceful and serene.
      Staff was amazing and the food was good too.
      Definitely worth it!

      We stayed for two days in the honeymoon suite, and it exceeded our expectations in every way. From walking into the room with the fireplace running and candles lit around the room, to the unique and exquisite location in the middle of the forest, it was like we'd teleported to a different world. The breakfast is delicious and incredibly generous, and the views as you eat and enjoy the main deck are out of this world. The staff also made us feel right at home. We can't wait to go back!

      Room tip: Honeymoon suite is a must stay!

      Reviewed 13 September 2020

      It's a difficult review to write. We booked the honeymoon suite and it was as good as it looked in the photo's and reviews. It really was a treat to sleep out in the forest surrounded only by glass. We kept the outside light on and the frogs serenaded us beautifully all night long. We were fortunate enough to have rain which was simply awesome to watch and hear while our indoor fire kept us warm all night long. We also booked the Spa room which was another treat so from that side we were very happy.
      The part we found odd was that there is no guest loo so if you are eating supper you have to go all the way back to your room if all the rooms are full. The kitchen has no extractor fan and is slap bang in the middle of the lounge area. We found this very strange, but Management assured us that they had been running since 2005 and we were the first to bring this matter up - you decide when you go there. The lodge lounge area is locked up at night so if you had a problem you would need to wait till the morning to discuss it with anyone. It would have felt better if we had a telephone number to call in case of emergency.
