When a lodge charge you R3100 per couple per night you expect something Royal. Far from that. We travel frequently all over the world and this was our MOST expensive stay per night ever. In March 2014 we were at a fantastic Ski Resort in Andorra in the Perinese Mountains and we paid R1700 per couple per night. The sundowner trip that was included were not worth R950 per person as quoted in their brochure.
On arrival there was just a waiter that gave us a form to fill in. Because of the time 15:00 the only food they could provide us was a toasted ham & cheese. For a 4 star establishment we expected more.
In our room there was no TV, I understand that we are in the bush and the tranquility must be respected. But for a 4 star?????
Our bed linen had holes in them and the bathroom was over run with ants. After I report it to the waiter it was cleaned up, but on our return it was all the same again.
I am embarrassed that for an establishment like a 4 star in South Africa this lodge is ripping off tourist from abroad. It seems a lot of Aussies are lured here. From me to them my deepest apologies that you are being Ripped Off in South Africa. Next time find another place to stay.
At most I will rate this as a Bad 3 star and price per night at R600 per couple per night
