We were the only two guests staying at the Machweo lodges. Lunch was meant to be Ravioli but we just got the contents of the Ravioli without the pasta, I think the home made pasta envelopes had been over boiled and had disintegrated, upon showing the owner on my Ipad Ravioli I was informed that the images represented industrial Ravioli!, I disagreed and we have not stopped laughing since, very funny. The evening dinner was worse, the Lamb which was meant to be well done was raw upon been cut, we just ate the vegetables and bread, the chef spent the night drinking along side our table I think he maybe should have cooked for his only two guests. Rooms are OK we stayed two nights, the first night we were kept awake until midnight by a local church who had a very loud preacher on amplification, this is not the lodges fault but guests should be aware of the noise potential. The rooms have no Air con and we asked for a fan twice but we were told there are none provided, so you have a very stuffy room and if you need to close the windows to keep the noise out you get a sweat box for the night. I estimated a staff ration of 7 to 1 but we lifted our luggage in and out ourselves and we could not ring reception because there are no phones in the rooms.
