French Lodge International
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 January 2014

Our Experience at the French Lodge Internation were average.Geyser temp set too low,so could not enjoy jacuzi, or take a nice hot shower.No curtains at bathroom windows and windows could not close properly. Even though individual apartments around the pool, not very private

This was one of the most hospitable places we have ever been to (and we do travel a lot). The French owner and his General Manager as well as all staff were so friendly and helpful. The cabins ans their beautiful interior, pool, and setting are very beautiful.

There is not really anything to complain about. Cabins with reed roofs are, of course, sometimes a bit humid inside and an occasional insect can come inside, but everything was clean and service was great.

The local setting in George is not a particularly interesting tourist area, but many attractions along the Garden Route are easily accessible from here.

The rating says it is a 4 star place. This is not what we experienced. The place did not smell that great and the quality of the fittings in the place was dated. Not what we expected for a 4 star place.

French Lodge was a lovely romantic getaway for Valentine's Day. Clean, comfortable, friendly staff and central to George restaurants & airport. Reasonable wine was available and breakfast very nice too. The only thing we were not impressed with was the coffee and they were very apologetic and happy to supply a better pot. All in all, no complaints and we would definitely go back.

We flew into George (from JBG) so this was an ideal stop to acclimatise. Just 15 mins from George airport; 15 mins from the beaches, and 2 mins from the main street it's a great location.
The lodge itself was very friendly, clean and simple. A very nice, spacious room overlooking the pool; if you wanted to stay longer the poolside chalets looked very nice.
It's a great stopover place and I would return and recommend...

Room Tip: Poolside rooms/chalets are very nice... If you want something a little quiter ask for the balcony ro...
