Guest Comments

Rooms poorly finished, hot water is boiling and too hot ( dangerous for kids), rooms need proper chairs
Decks awesome, food great, cost too high, position of the lodge is stunning, heater setting for air con did not work properly.
Felt we paid too much for the room as facilities were very basic.


We had a very pleasant overnight stay at the Waschbank River Lodge, and the hospitality was outstanding.

The location is spectacular and we enjoyed our stay.

Awesome and relaxing.
