We liked the specious rooms and the open veranta with the beautiful view to the river. we would prefer the hotel had an activity center instead of the receptionist giving very poor information about the activities to the Kruger National park
the evening game drive was a bomb...The buffet reminded me of my wedding day(...although I aint married yet,but I am sure you get my point...The rooms!!!...wow...Private garden...the river view at the restaurant...Superb... the spa closes too early...
Food! Lots, service, attitude of Staff, staff were only interested in bus load groups, not small groups. Facilities were poor, aircon not working, toilets leaking all over the floor.
beautiful view/breakfast boxes supplied as we left very early for knp
the atmosphere, dining, service quality of accommodation
Deck area and Restuarant Accommodation was not what was originally request and agreed. We booked three adults and we were told that one adult would be upstairs in their own room n a family unit. Instead, we were booked into a chalet with a fold out couch as the third bed. There were only towels and catering in the room for two people, not three as per our booking. Staff were not very service - orientated. Menu boring!
The view of Kruger and the animals. ants
We found nothing to be especially good about the hotel except perhaps the fact that the rooms we nicely situated. Although the hotel was ok, the game drive company associated with the hotel we found to be very poor. We went on a safari drive, leaving at 5.30 am., About 45 minutes after the start we had a punture. We then were told that the spare tyre was flat and that they had no jack. We were stranded in the middle of the Kruger Park for an hour before help arrrived. When the drive eventually continued, we never saw any of the big cats and we did not get back to the hotel until12.45 pm! In addition we were charged the full adult cost for taking a 18 month old child that sat on his mother's lap
River Lodge was quiet and relaxing. It also provided a stunning viewpoint over the river, from which one could view the animals. No
We found the view stunning and would have liked to have spent more time on the deck watching the game and birds. Also found all the nick knacks so interesting. Duffy and Johan were friendky and welcoming.
The standard of the accomodation and the manner in which the hosts made us welcome was exceptional I would not hesitate to (and indeed already have) recomend river house lodge to anyone looking for somewhere to stay near kruger (John aka jason!)
The redeeming factor for this lodge is its location and lookout over the river. And also the owners were very helpful. The place is full of junk. Some people might call them querky, but i hated it! Entire place needs renovation, the rooms are old, carpets are discusting, doors dont close properly and at one stage when i tried opening the patio door the handle came off. Extremely overpriced for the quality of accomodation
The beautiful deck by the Crocodile river and the various animals and birds that can be seen from there. Also the very peaceful surroundings, pleasant garden and cosy bar
