              The accomodation is perfect as there aren't any other close by. I feel that the lodge needs a make over, i have been using it for a few years now and the staff needs to improve on their hospitality side eventhou there is no competition close by but good customer service is still a priority.

              Very good”

              Great location, great calming scenery, friendly helpful staff and good food. An architectural revamp will do wonders, particularly flittings like air-conditioning units, interior scheme (remove outdated tiles and old details etc. Upgrade wine offering and more diversity on alcoholic beverages. I feel the rate was slightly over-priced; there are more better new establishments which share similar locations but are priced better.

              This place is amazing, it looks great, the staff are amazing and the food is delicious. I can't stress how gorgeous this place is. This is the 8th world wonder. The only bad thing is the drive to this place. It's scary, incline up a mountain that windings.

              Room service did not provide sauces for our meals.... We found a bottle of alcohol under our bed... Other than that, everything else was perfect. I recommend it.

              location is great

              I actually like this hotel very much. it's chic and modern and right in front of the lake but little things you can tell this place is poorly maintained. paint is peeling off, ac is off here and there, rusty fences, i think the management should do something about it before it is too late.

The hotel is built on the bank of the Jozini Dam, away from noise area - very peacefull. It has the BEST view of the dam and the clear view of the bridge. The chiefs are very flexible.
