                                          Unfortunately I can't leave a good review as I did the previous time we stayed there. The bed was broken, the neighbours drunk and noisy until the early morning hours. Security no where to be seen. Not recommended if you need a good night's sleep.

                                          Comfortable clean facilities in airconditioned room at reasonable price. Will gladly use them again. Can add more tv channels

                                          The overall apperance of the lodge needs to be better maintained, pool cleaned, front gate mended, overflowing dustbins emptied etc. We had no hot water to shower in. The lodge has a fantastic view over the lake but you have to look constantly at old cars lying around and the place looking unkept.

                                          We had a lovely night. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. All we needed.
