Reviews of Namakwari Lodge

"The outward appearance of the lodge is very 'pleasing to the eye' but as the well coined-phrase suggests 'the Devil Rests in the Detail'. Upon arrival we were assigned to the 'larger family room that has a bath & a shower' that being 'Fam1'. Well, after an exhausting journey 'shock & horror' was to be confronted for immediately outside the bedroom door is a 'Jumping Inflatable Castle' with a large & noisy inflation pump thumping away! Upon inquiry, only to be told 'well it is turned off at 21:00hrs'!!! Apparantly parents with young children love the noise? Anyway, we were reassigned to Room 21, pleasant & clean on the inside but with the wood-laminate floors lifting on the corners on about 25% of the floor, just 'inviting a large toe to impale itself'.!! Safety hazard.....ummm, I think so! And for R1900 for the two of us, no shampoo just liquid soap that dehydrates ones hair.

Given we were in beef country, the two Rump steaks were near impossible to cut. Breakfast .....arrival at 07:30, suggested it was well 'time-expired' in the steamers. Value for money, very poor!"

I would however like to bring it under your attention that the breakfast was not of the same standard as the rest of the house. I will definitely stay at the lodge again, but will have breakfast somewhere else."


"Stunning"

(South Africa) Nelius Louw | 9 November 2012

"Stunning accommodation and restaurant. Unfortunately the shower in my unit (1 FAM) was terrible as there was very little water coming out of the shower head. This was brought under their attention."


"When can I stay again?"

I am already thinking of an excuse to visit again. It's the small things that count. This place just does it right.

Thank you for a great stay. "

We did not have our meals there and cannot judge all the services. Nice surprises: The wildlife grazing in close proximity. (Overall it deserves at least a four star rating)"
