  • 8.0.Very good

    Not bad

    I'm not sure how this was deemed a 4 star hotel, I'd say it's a solid 3 star. The decking of the cabins seemed like it needed repair, the facilities could use an upgrade. The food was good, service wasn't bad. They should really warn you about the terrible drive in - you should use 4x4 as it's very rocky and a long drive! Skip the private tour of Addo National Park as it's in a closed in van - that should be clear as well - I want an open air jeep!

  • 8.0.Very good

    sehr unerfahrenes personal, das von hotelservice nicht viel versteht. bei der anreise wurde nicht erwähnt, dass nur ein menü zum abendessen serviert wird. auch wussten wir erst als der teller auf dem tisch stand, was es überhaupt gibt. das rotweinglas wurde beinahe randvoll gefüllt... etc.. beim frühstück haben äffchen vom tisch im hotel (drinnen, nicht auf dem balkon) gegessen und geschirr zerschlagen - das personal hats nicht gross gekümmert... der ess-saal hat zwei wunderschöne cheminee. sehr schade dass diese nicht angezündet wurden.

    Wir haben uns sehr umsorgt gefühlt. Die Lage der Anlage ist unglaublich schön🐕. Von unser wunderbaren Lodge hatten wir einen tollen Ausblick auf Wildnis und konnten Elefanten, Giraffen und Gnus entspannt vom whirlpool/jacuzzi beobachten. Mega relaxed! We loved it! Und kommen recht bald wieder, für mehr Tage.
