Very Good8.0
Nice but too formal.
We very much enjoyed staying at the Maliba Mountain Lodge. The surroundings are goregeous, the rooms are nice, and the food is very good--all at an excellent price. The reason we don't give it five stars are the following: Wi-fi is only in the common areas, the beautiful river lodges are a long way from the main lodge common area, some rooms only have a bathtub--no shower, the service at dinner was very stodgy/old-fashioned. The staff training was apparently so intense that if you try to ask for a glass of water while they are trying to get the next course ready the staff can't adapt for fear of not doing something right on their rigorous schedule. They were literally more concerned with whether we had the right utensil than getting us a fresh drink. Do I really need silver-service at the expense of my thirst? It was down-right annoying. Moreover, in such a poor country, it sets the staff so far apart from their guests as to make it almost uncomfortable. LOOSEN UP!!!

Amazing location
Our family stayed in the River Lodge and had a fantastic time! Beautiful hiking and opportunities to swim/play in the river. The only complaint was the lighting in the kitchen was very dim, making it difficult to cook at night.

Never again
Definitely not 5-star. Overpriced and poor service. Breakfast was an extra charge and such a poor offering. Dinner was expensive and mediocre. They will even charge for extra firewood for your room. Makes you feel they just out to make a buck. Don’t waste your money, rather visit the park for the day to enjoy scenery and hikes.

Magical lodge in the mountains
The Maliaba lodge is beautifully located in the heart of the Lesotho high lands. The drive there itself offers a wonderful experience - be sure to take your time. From the lodge you have the option to enjoy the delicious breakfast on the wide, open deck with a spectacular view. A variety of hiking trails around the lodge are excellent. The staff was very helpful and courteous. We stayed in the river lodge, which are significantly more rustic than the chalets. However the location by the river is simply beautiful and the huts are very charming. Arrival by car does take significant time, due to the speed bumps on the road towards the lodge.
