We stayed here for 4 nights as part of our family vacation in August 2011. (We had one of the lodges booked). They are very well appointed inside, and on the basis of design and quality of fittings/materials used, are worthy of a 5 star description. Where this falls down, is in the wear and tear they seem to have been subjected to, given that they are still relatively new. While our lodge was very well equipped, and perfectly cleaned and maintained, there was a cigarette burn on the cream leather sofa. Also cigarette butts left outside by the picnic table. The coffee table and main table had stains from hot mugs, - despite coasters clearly provided on the table!. The sink unit in one of the bedrooms was leaning slightly from the wall. None of the above warranted me complaining to the hotel, as I did not want to be moved, - nor would I know if other lodges were the same or not. Its such a shame that accommodation that has been kitted out to be of a high standard is getting such hard wear and tear. I would love to go back, - but would be wary of how well these will be maintained over time, which is an issue if they wish to continue to be described as 5 star.
