Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great staff- very welcoming. Tranquil garden and grounds. . The bedroom was quite roomy. A simple breakfast is available. Easy access from the highway. Very safe surroundings. I wish we had had a second night there.

Great experience at Tsitsikyaya lodge. Good customer service. The place was clean. Amazing views at night. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The place gives a great sense of adventure as it is located in a quite peaceful area.

The staff couldn't have been more helpful if they'd tried! If you wanted a model for great service Claire and Megan and the rest of the staff are the examples to follow! Nothing was too much trouble. They prepared a BBQ for us when my little boy asked for a fire, they facilitated everything we could ask for and more. This accommodation was a delight to stay at and made exceptional by some of the friendliest and most helpful staff I've met! We'd highly recommend this stay to everyone!

We stayed here for a night on the eve of setting out on the Otter Trail and the team couldn't have been more helpful and friendly for us. The rooms are simple and comfortable. Dinner and breakfast was good too.

Clean, quiet, spacious cottage with gated parking. Staff eager to please guests. Walking distance to small shops, restaurant and town. 15 minute drive to SANS park entry. Breakfast is prepared to order AND a full buffet. Real coffee from an express machine = bonus. Full kitchen , sitting area, porch.

We loved our one night stay at the lodge. Located just outside the National park it had a wonderfully spacious room, well propped and a big bathroom to go with it. Simba and the staff were very courteous and sweet. Simba gave some good advice on how to spend the morning at the Park. All in all , a place I would love to go back to.

Should we ever need to stay in Storms River again. It will definitely be at the Tsitsikhaya lodge and Spa. Great service and lovely facilities. After walking the infamous Otter trail, this is exactly what we needed. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Tsitsikhaya was an absolute treat ! A little gem that felt like home away from home. When we came in we were welcomed by a very friendly and welcoming gentleman, Simba who then took us to our room. Our room had great space but could do with a bit more modern finishings. Public bathrooms could also do with a regular check up. The overall ambiance and feel of the place was great ! There’s a peaceful outside area where you can just laze around and relax your day away. The lovely little spa feels like a hidden oasis with a decent variety of treatments. During the evening there was a fun karaoke session that my colleague and I joined in on and had an absolute blast. Danielle attended to us in the morning and was so attentive to our needs, super service ! A Sunday lunch buffet would be a great addition to the menu especially for in-house guests that are just relaxing and not looking for a formal dining. This gem is definitely a place we’d visit again.
