Guest Comments

We were half an hour early for check in which is at 2pm. On our arrival we were told that the rooms may not yet be cleaned but it will be cleaned shortly. Because we were only staying for one night and was in the area for a wedding, we checked in, got dressed and left for the wedding again. When we returned around 11pm, the rooms were still uncleaned and there were no sheets on the beds. We could also not find anyone on standby at that time of the evening. The next morning we asked the cleaning staff what had happened and they told us they never received orders to get the specific rooms cleaned. When we mentioned what had happened the next morning at reception, we were told that there is nothing we can do about it.

We were not impressed at all

Our stay at Shikwaru Lodge was great. The staff was very nice and friendly.The food at African Pot Restaurant was very good. We will be visiting them again, very soon. The weekend was very relaxing only one problem.......... IT WAS TOO SHORT.
