Positive Reviews

In an excellent nature environment

Great service from staff

The lodge's staff members receive plaudits for their approach to customer service. Along with having an accommodating nature, the personnel are further applauded for their welcoming and kind demeanour.

Enjoyable food served

Guests are pleased with the quality of the lodge's food. Served as a buffet, the breakfast and dinner choices are complimented for being tasty and enjoyable as a whole.

Negative Reviews

Location not for everyone

While its quiet and secluded position is popular for those seeking such a destination, the lodge's location receives criticism in certain areas. The lack of shops or dining options close by is a letdown, while the lengthy dirt road to get to the property is particularly seen as an issue.

Wi-Fi at a poor standard

Guests condemn the lodge with regards to the Wi-Fi service offered. While delivered on an inclusive basis, it receives negative feedback due to a reportedly limited range. Visitors say it is frequently only accessible near the property's conference room, which can be a letdown for those needing to stay connected.

Limited value provided

When it comes to the overall value for money supplied by the lodge, visitors are left rather disappointed. Along with a limited amount of on-site facilities available, the additional cost of dining and drinking is said to be on the high side as well.
