“Simple yet practical and clean”
Reviewed 4 August 2012

We stayed at the lodge for a week in April.

Eric, the friendly gentleman who runs the lodge could not have been more friendly, approachable and helpful.

The rooms are fairly basic, it's not meant to be a five star hotel after all. But in terms of what you get for your money we were very happy to have stayed there and would recommend to anyone who is stopping off for a few days.

Reviewed 4 July 2011

This place is very simple. You really get what you pay for to be honest. The rooms are basic double beds with small bathrooms.
The complex is run by an old European (?) couple - at least that's what I concluded when I spoke with a woman to make my booking and when I checked in, I was served by a 70yr old man. He was very welcoming and try to make our stay as comfortable as possible but you could clearly tell he should have been retired already.
My problem with the room was there was a tiny foot heater and being winter and around 8-10degrees at night, it was a very painful way of heating up the room, not to mention really noisy!
The other problem I had was there was no hot water at night because apparently the thing had a leak and since it was the weekend, the old bloke had trouble getting it fixed.
The rooms were tidy, average and pretty much what I deserved with what my budget was. Only a small complex with about 20 rooms? Oh and there are no lifts so if you happen to be on the 2nd floor with lots of luggage, AND you're a woman, you probably won't get much help from the older gentleman when it comes to strength and energy to help you.
Overall, it was ok...I only needed a place to sleep because I was at a function all weekend so it wasn't that important to have all the frills. If u need a joint to sleep, this will do. If you're looking for good service and room quality, don't go here coz you'll be very disappointed.
