Review of Windmill Lodge
3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 08 May 2019
at first the entrance and staff speaks of a five star hotel that what u should accept from the sun international group. but one started using the ammenities you can see the wear and tear and the outcry for maintanance. deck chairs are in a very poor state. swimming pool needs upgrade. the overall look of the lodge is in a very good condition though can use an upgrade.television in room are very small , snowed and rolled all chanels. complained about it..response was the busy fixing dstv. we did however enjoyed our overnight stay, with a nice room and clean linen.

Reviewed 15 April 2019

Staff are friendly and I actually feed bad for staff that I am rating this lodge on the lowest possible bar. The room was not clean, the bed literally smelt of wee. The water was cold when we arrived so we could not bath - this was terrible after travelling. I have also never in my life seen such a small TV and worse the picture doesn't display it just jumps all the time. All round I would not recommend or be back.

Very average hotel at best. The poor staff are trying their utmost to make the experience as pleasant as possible. However, I get the feeling that the systems and management are failing the staff. Lack of cutlery in the breakfast area (R 175 per person), painfully slow internet, business centre computer does not work, noisy aircon, small little flat screen TV with very limited channels and you don't know what channel you are on except for SABC channels and no fridge. Felt like a budget hotel and most certainly not a Sun International hotel standard.

Reviewed 30 November 2018

Staff was friendly and helpful. Airconditioner didnt work. Room looked old and bathroom needs upgrading.

Was a bit pricey for what we got. The gardens and pool looked very well kept.

We didnt eat at the hotel but chose the Ocean BAsket which is a short distance walk .

The cars can be parked at the back in a secure area.

Room tip: Try far from reception as it would be quieter. Also make sure you test the Aircon before the staff leaves the room

Rooms are big but tired. Needs to be overhauled . Aircon at its coldest didnt cool down the room. Bathrooms need to be refurbished and the shower trickled water.

All in all a sad experience for R 1300.00 per night

Over priced hotel.

Room tip: only slept there 1 night and couldnt wait to get away

The restaurant is neat and the welcome very professional. However they organized a concert with the music so overwhelmingly loud that you couldn't stay in your room. When that finally stopped you hear the noise from the highway. I do not recommend this hotel.
