The property location is excellent, even with a mini lake.

However, the room we were booked in(Bejane) is too small, with beds and beddings leaving a lot to be desired. The bedding did not look to the standard of any property one could have in the Dinokeng Game Reserve. We had to use our own blankets to sit/sleep on the beds because the lined and duvets were not comforting.

The christmas lunch was a disaster!! It was supposed to be a buffet but no choice of foods was ever given. The meal was completely unedible, the salads were not covered and flies were playing!!! Despite having paid for a buffet, we were charged separately for the drinks!!!!

Our stay was so terrible we did not eat breakfast the following morning(despite having paid for it) and we checked out and found another property for the night.

I had secretly wondered while researching the property why there were not pictures of the rooms online!!! Now I know why.

Our most sincere apologies that you did not enjoy your stay. Drinks are never included in a buffet, there are plenty of pictures on our website at least 4 pictures per room, you may have missed them. We are an a la carte restaurant and have been operating as such for the last 16 years, very, successfully as you will see from our reviews. We have been fully booked for the entire Christmas and New Year period and have had very happy guests with no complaints Kind regards

The lodge was situated in the wright place, wright inside the bush. The staff was well mannered, took good care of us especially Thanks a million times to Sam and the other guy, you made our stay worthwhile. My concern was the cleanliness of the bathrooms. The basin and shower was extremely duty, its like those things were not cleaned before we arrive. The dust in the shower was a great turn off. The soap water onto of the basin was also a turn off and the mini dustbin in the bathroom for sanitary towels was not emptied before our arrival. Lastly for a 4 star lodge we expect a mini bar fridge in a room. it was actually an inconvenience to us because we had to ask Sam to put our drinks in the main fridge and we didn't feel comfortable going to the main fridge when ever we needed a drink. By the way we had a great challenge with mosquitoes in our bed rooms.
