3/5

  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Total expensive let-down.

(1) Was disappointed with the room. I specifically asked for a Kingsize bed but got 2 small beds which were only converted into a bigger bed the following day. The first night was extremely uncomfortable. The room cupboards looked old with peeling finishing/trimmings. (2) The food quality and variety were far below expectations especially in view of the money paid. (3) Game viewing really not informative; guide was merely driving around, sharing very little knowledge of game and birds.(4) Overall, a total expensive letdown.

3/5

  • Liked: Staff & service, room comfort

Underwhelming experience

Hotel is nice and well decorated. Game drives are cut short because of kitchen schedule demands. I go to the bush for the wildlife, not to be cut short because a cook that wants to run his kitchen on a clock. Food is served buffet style anyway, so what is the rush? Convenient location, close to Jhb, but overall disappointing.

Fantastic small Lodge

My wife and I stayed here for one night in October and found it to be fantastic. the staff were great, the facilities are beautiful and that game drives productive. the meals are served at a nearby lodge and were very good. I am sorry I only got to stay one night but it is highly recommended!

Location: Cant self drive safari on the concession the entrance to the national park is only about 30 minutes away and there are plenty of animals midday

BEWARE: NO WIFI IN ROOMS, BUT GREAT HOTEL

My biggest disappointment in this establishment is arriving and finding out that there is no wifi at the lodge even though it lists that it does. They offer wifi ONLY in the restaurant, which you only go to twice a day for meals--not to lounge about and be on your laptop, etc. Other than that, I would agree that the rooms themselves are slightly outdated and rundownish--but not enough for me to not want to return. Let's just say that the paint and decor looks a lot nicer in the photos than it does in real life. Very comfy beds, very large and very cool bathrooms with tub, shower, and outdoor shower. The pool shouldn't really be called a pool--it should be called a dipping area of water. It is literally the smallest "pool" I have ever seen. Game drives were a 10/10 experience, and service at the hotel and restaurant was fantastic. The biggest question that any review comes down to is: Would I return to this lodge if I were back in the Pilanesberg area? I'd answer that with a Yes.
