Airport Game Lodge
Reviewed 19 June 2011

Arriving late at ORT we needed a comfy place with quick access, Meet and Greet, and restful for a lingering departure. Airport Game Lodge ticked all the boxes.
The booking process, On line, was simple and friendly and they were there to meet the plane. A short, 15 minute drive, had us to the Lodge and into the extremely nice Bungalow in a short time. I think from landing, to room was well less than an hour. (ORT gets a prize for quick immigration and luggage retrieval etc., )
We settled in, it was late enough for us and they even brought us a cold beer or two, and Coffee, to our room.
A good nights sleep had us rested and ready for next day. Our pick up was not due until 11 am so we had chance to relax in the grounds and take a leisurely breakfast in the upstairs restaurant.
Check Out was smooth enough and service courteous throughout.
a great find. thanks.

My family and I had a tour leaving from Airport Game Lodge, so we stayed there a few days before the tour and the night after it ended. The location is not at all convenient if you don't have a car. It is 1.2 km away from the closest grocery store, and you have to order food in from a service because no restaurants are nearby. The hotel does offer a transfer service, but they charge a lot to bring you anwhere but the airport (airport pick up and drop off is free one time per day). The biggest inconvenience was the lack of Internet access. Their wifi didn't work at all, and the owner couldn't figure out why and didn't seem very concerned. They have one computer station that you can pay to use which is really old and ran out of credits (which have to be purchased by the hotel) twice in the three times I used it, despite the fact that I had paid for my time. The owner did reimburse me for my time lost on the computer, but only after I asked him. Overall, we were very sick of the hotel's lack of concern for its obvious problems by the time we left.

Stayed here at both ends of my trip. The lodge is in the middle of nowhere so once you check in, there is no leaving. If hungry, you have to call for delivery which can take a very long time and come cold. This is not the fault of the lodge but just a warning to grab food before you check in.
The rooms were spacious, clean and nicely decorated. There was plenty of hot water for showering - nice! The grounds were relaxing with some wildlife penned up. The staff was very friendly.
It was better than I anticpated and would stay again. The biggest downfall were the twin beds are very hard, lumpy and uncomfortable. Since I was dead tired, I was able to sleep fine on them.

A friendly place which is quiet and conducive for work and relaxation - it has a pool. The only drawback is no lunch or evening meals are available, so if you arrive in the evening hungry, the only option is phoning for a takeaway pizza or self-catering in the communal kitechen/lounge. Breakfasts are good, though, and there are good tea and coffee facilities in the rooms.

We stayed here 1 night, before driving further for 4 weeks thru SA.
The hosts had ...on our specific request ....picked us up at night in the airport ..and not outside as their standard arrangement is with our travel-agent : We didnot want to wander around at night outside....This worked well.
Further the place is clean, staff at breakfast friendly and reception helpfull when the next morning our rental car was brought. > Good value for money.
