      Ok accommodation, a bit rusty ”

      The location of this self catering apartment was excellent if you wish to go to Addo Elephant Park quickly. It’s only 15min away. The app was located at a different location than the hotel, namely the zephyr suites. The staff of Dolphin Lodge were very kind. However, the apartment was quite outdated and the kitchen amenities were scarce. There was no pepper/salt nor tea/coffee basics and the cooking utilities quite old and based on top of a microwave? The rooms were very moisty and damp. We suspected mould. Communication and check-in and -out went smooth. Would recommend for a one nighter.

      Claustrophobic”

      The lodge has more rooms than what can comfortably be fit onto the premises. Parking is a tight squeeze. The reception area is a cramped little cubicle. The 2 rooms I had booked (and a 3rd) opened directly into the dining area which had tables closely packed together. There was hardly any public area for relaxing inside the building. Although there seemed to be some tables set up outside, this was blocked by security gates which none of the staff gave any indication could be opened. [The Lodge is advertised as being of 4star standard. However it also operates other properties via the same page on Agoda that are definitely not of 4star standard.] Some cupboards in the guest space contained private property of the lodge and were locked with unattractive chains. Clearly the lodge does not have enough private storage space.

      Quite, clean and friendly staff. We stayed in one of the self catered rooms. It was a spacious room with plenty of cookware and access to free wifi. Wifi was a little slow but it was sufficient for our purposes. Whenever we had question, the staff was friendly and delightful. We had a lovely stay and only wished we could stay longer.

      The place was neat & clean. Was a good location for my needs. Value for money if you ask me. The room was small (as advertised). Would have liked a carpet/ mat in the room. Wifi was not functional in the upstairs room. No hot water to shower on one morning.
