"A Lodge on the Lake is exactly what it says... a lodge with stunning views of the lakes of Wilderness. Wildlife on the lake can be viewed at leisure from any of the balconies with the picturesque Outiniqua mountains as a backdrop.The lodge itself is a stunningly beautiful building, the landscaping and architecture designed to the finest detail. The rooms are luxurious and one has to make a conscious decision to go somewhere and to leave the lodge.However. All is not what is to be expected from a 5 star establishment. Here are some of the concerns.We were disappointed to find that all the condiments in our room were not replenished before our arrival, or on a daily basis. Multiple requests had to be issued.Breakfast did not cater for the number of guest at the lodge, hence the not so early birds had to pick at the leftovers.No air refresher in the bathroom?! We could not combat nature or the smell of cigarettes from the guests before us in the lavatory.General maintenance also needs some attention with basin not flowing properly, fittings coming loose, etc."

"My very special lady and I booked the Honeymoon Suite from 25 November to 27 November 2013. The views are exceptional, the restaurants in the area are top class and there is plenty to do for everybody, including the adventure seekers. We had a great time. Rory, the manager, is hands on, friendly and informative. We will definitely be back!"

"This place is absolutely beautiful! This was the perfect location to celebrate into the new year!"
"We had a wonderful stay in a beautiful room looking out on the lake... When you open the doors to your balcony you can lay in bed and have a breathtaking view of the lake, hills etc - we also heard a fish eagle, It really is a special place and we would highly recommend it!"
