If I could I would give zero stars. In all my travels I have never come across such a rude, disrespectful and incompetent owner. We arrived at 12pm and did not expect to go to our room but just check in and drop our bags off (as we have done many times before at various accommodations). His first response to...

We made a reservation on the 13th of Jan for check in 14th of Jan but due to unforeseen circumstances we had to cancel. We spoke to the owners to cancel and they had said no problem when we made the cancellation. Today 16th of Jan we are being charged for the deposit which they didn't charged before we cancelled....

I asked why and his sarcastic response to this was: "SOUTH AFRICANS ARE NOT ON THE SAME LEVEL OF SOPHISTICATION AS THE EUROPEAN MARKET"!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ofcourse I am going to enquire on his thoughts...

Booked the accommodation based on the photos seen however we were only notified that they changed the premises after the booking and were somewhat disappointing. Rooms felt like your average university residence except that the bedding was better. The bathroom only had a bath and the handheld shower head was not fixed anywhere and the button to operate it had...

My daughter and I spent one night here. I can assure you this was the first time, and definitely the last! The TV was not working, and there was a lot of electric wires and extensions, which we first had to figure out what works where. The double bed linen was too small, and one duvet cover has a hole...

My wife and I went to George 08-10 Apr. When we got Outeniqua Travel Lodge we realised that I made a mistake in the booking. I had mixed the dates up and accidentally booked the following weekend. The guy who dealt with us referred us to other possible lodges and said that he'll arrange that we are reimbursed for our...

According to their website, all single rooms were booked for my dates, hence no online-booking was possible. So I tried my luck and sent an email, hoping there were other options like a dorm room which also cannot be booked directly on their site. I was happy to hear then that as a matter of fact, they still did have...

We stayed in a room for a couple of nights for a connection to Wilderness. It was very basic, no air con, wifi was intermittent and most the time you had to sit in the living room to access the web. Because their was no air con or fan we had to have the windows open, and as a result...
