  : The Deck restaurant was beautifully situated at the river with an incredible view. The room was spacious and a silent airconditioning. Breakfast just great. To bad that the generator was really loud during the load shedding. Is was close to our room, maybe they can build something around it to minimize the noise. Or bring earplugs when the loadshedding is at night. Great staff! Only 5 minutes drive from the Malelane gate.
  : Nothing!

  : The rooms were comfortable and we slept very well. The garden is lovely with lots of bird song, many visits by a colourful king fisher. Weaver birds on the bank of the dam were fascinating to watch. Great breakfast buffet. The restaurant is fabulous and we had delicious meals - highly recommended. Good and consistent wifi. We booked a safari through reception which was great and we saw 4 of the big 5.
  : Hairdryer in drawer was broken and held together with tape. An adaptor is required to plug in the hairdryer but not in room. When I showed the broken hairdryer to housekeeping I was given one from another room and the broken one left in that room. We did not like that the pool was cloudy (but we saw this in our Johannesburg hotel too), the broken sunbeds around the pool were not removed/replaced. These issues did not stop us enjoying our stay.

  : We love this place to relax from the long flight from Europe before heading into Kruger National Park. It feels almost like you are in the park already, with the river view and all the animals, excellent birding, too. But you get the creature comforts of an excellent restaurant and the chance to stock up for the park at the Spar, that is literally just around the corner.
  : Nothing - we will certainly be back :-)

Very Good

Traveller Type: family with young children
  : Great bed and pillows. Very efficient AC. Good shower water pressure. Friendly staff - John, the Food and Beverage Manager in particular is a great ambassador for the Lodge.
  : Honeymoon suite was smaller than my room (# 28 with a river view) and found the TVs in both rooms very small with a lack of channels. I get it, it is not the reason for coming here but still. The food was good when it could have been great and I expected better sun loungers and lit swimming pools at night. Small things only but it could have made the difference between good and great.
