4/10 Fair

We booked at Kiara Lodge because of the facilities they offered (cause no one just stay 12km out side of the nearest town) The hot water pools (which was supposed to be open on 1 Aug) was still closed on 13 Aug. The game room was disappointing. the xbox dont have remotes and if you have kids you know an xbox without a remote is usless. The other game console is a PS2 which is very out dated. The rest of the games in the game room was either broken or missing parts. There is absolutely no signal at this lodge and the "Free wifi" they advertise is only 100MB :( They (over) charge for absolutely everything. I am surprised that we did not get a bill for the oxygen we breathed over the weekend. This place is over rated and way over priced. Honestly we could have stayed at the Protea Hotel in Clarence and paid less.

Great mid-week getaway for the family
Very unique and picturesque location with a quiet, comfortable feel. Children are safe to go to the play area while the adults enjoy a cappuccino at the restaurant. Many outdoor activities kept us busy all week. The accommodation was modern and clean and offered a cosy rest at the end of a long, busy day with a beautiful roaring fire. The staff are amazing, friendly and ready to assist. I am booking my next stay there very soon.

Big Dissapointment
We saved for an entire year to be able to go to a nice place. The checking took a long time. We finally got to our unit and settled in... the Channels on the decoder was not working. The maintenance guy was not able to fix it, The wifi stopped working was never, The games room was locked, The jacuzzi in the pool area never worked. When we asked the pool guy he was very rude and said it comes on automatically, which it never did. None of this was rectified our entire stay. We spoke with some other familys and they had been there 2 or more days before us and they cinfirmed, that it was the same way since their arrival.
