I think it is important that the hotels take into account that during our stay, their premises become a home away from home. I struggled with accessing good tv channels & this was unpleasant. Rectify.

My bed had bed bugs, it isn't maintained with proper hygiene standards. It was a very uncomfortable stay, thankfully it was just one night. I did however enjoy the breakfast, at least that part of my stay was pleasant.

I stayed here for a week. You have to buy WIFI from reception of which I think with their expensive rates they should at least give guests complimentary data daily not sell. With their rates I expect decent meal from the lodge itself not being given a voucher to go and eat at the nearest mall. I was booked close...

I booked this place for an international guest, only for the guest to call me and having to revoke the booking because this otherwise good place doesn't have WiFi service. In the ad we saw and used to book, they claim they have WiFi but it;'s only at reception, which means that a guest has to leave their room and...

Relaxing and private. Comfortable bed and rooms serviced daily. Pleasant, peaceful garden area, secure spacious parking. We enjoyed our time at College Lodge which is closely situated to the city and malls.

I've stayed at this establishment a few times over a number of years. Previously I always stayed in one of the gardens rooms or honeymoon suite - very nice, luxurious, quiet and comfortable. The last time round was a list minute booking and I stayed in one of the rooms close to reception. The noise was terrible! There isn't always...

My son, Dale, was booked in and paid in full but never actually stayed over as his vehicle broke down in Graaff Reinet where he was forced to spend the night. My wife did contact your establishment to inform them and was told she would be contacted by the owner, which still has not occurred to date. What I find...

Lodge is well maintained with various room offerings. The garden rooms are the best and are not that exposed to noisy guests. Decor of rooms are modern and clean. Lodge only serve breakfast that is well priced. Various restaurants are close by. Car parking is problematic and not always secure.

Desperately calling around for lodges to accommodate my family after the hired-trailers' bearing gave up leaving them stranded on the M5 whilst moving them from DBN to Cape Town at 11pm. George was so helpful and friendly when we called from London to try and resolve accommodation for the family and goods on the trailer. My family eventually made it...
