"Place very tranquil for a break . We had a nice quiet weekend. What I did not like we slept on single beds, for a couple it's a no. No bedside mat. No mirror in the bathroom.A turn off its when we were about to leave and told we owing the balance. I paid all the money through Safari, I don't know how the system works apparently it was not showing. They had to phone the ownerto sort this out"

"My partner and I had a wonderful stay with The Cradle lodge.. We had a very lovely welcome, our room was nice and clean, it was very warm and everything I had requested prior to our arrival was done... That pleased me alot. The staff were sweet and very friendly, and breakfast was also tastey.. Though I feel they could have changed the manue, as we had the same thing every morning.. Our room was cleaned daily.. We were very sad when we had to check out and we are most definately planning to go back soon... Oh and it was very quiet and peace, exactly what we needed.."

"I went to The Cradle Lodge with a group of friends for the weekend.The rooms were beautiful, spacious, clean and comfortable. We were told that the place was undergoing some renovations but it was kept very clean and tidy despite those renovations.The staff is friendly and they made sure that our stay was as comfortable as possible. They cooked pap and gravy for us when we told them we wanted to braai. And they happily provided us with everything we needed for the braai :)The boma allowed us to sit around the fire and keep warm despite the cold winter's night.I would gladly go back to The Cradle Lodge."

"Our stay at The Cradle Lodge was very pleasant. The room was decent and spacious. The breakfast was filling and came freshly prepared.My only gripe was that our room was south facing which resulted in it being quite cold."

"My husband and I loved and enjoyed our stay. My bedroom was spacious,cool and clean, and the breakfast was something to look forward to. The garden was welcoming and refreshing, how can I forget such polite staff especially Lisa? We knew about the pool "issue "thanks to reviewers, but the gate remote control is a stresssing issue that needs urgent attention. There was NO bar fridge nor hairdryer in my room as promised. But it is a good place or very good place to chill I guess..I would recommend it to any of my friends Thanks Lisa."

"18days later I'm sitting in the comfort of my home wondering where Mashaba is. That man alone made our stay at the lodge memorable. The 6 rooms we rented were all clean and comfortable. I do believe that the pool area could do with some cleaning or maybe a renovation."
