Reviewed 25 September 2016 via mobile

Stayed in a Family room which was lovely and very big. Bed was comfortable. Room and bathroom was clean.

While the lodge itself is beautiful with stunning views, the pool has no deck chairs and is quite small so not really comfortable to sit around if you are wanting a lazy poolside day.

Food was ok but the service levels are terrible. I walked in to the breakfast room and while I saw at least 5 waiters, not one person greeted me or asks if I needed help. I waited half an hour and I had to go to the kitchen to ask someone to help me. I would understand if it was super busy but it wasn't. Most staff were hanging inside the kitchen instead of seeing to the customers.
I had a similar problem when it was dinner. Service is exceptionally slow!

Stayed: September 2016, travelled with family

We spent a few hours at the Waterfront for the Vale Meander Wine Route, sampling some good wines . to my surprise they has a wood fired Pizza Oven. Had a very nice Pizza. Summer coming have a Pizza on the Deck overlooking the Vaal River . great spot to chill

Room Tip: Great view of the Vaal River from the raised deck sit and chill with a drink

A nice and clean place next to river and management / staff are cooperative and helpful. We stayed for two nights and stay was very comfortable. Food was fresh and tasty to enjoy. Only one thing was missing, play facilities for kids. Still nice place to stay. Thanks to Management

Room Tip: All have same access and distance from river or dinning area

What a wonderful experience this past weekend at a beautiful venue on the Vaal River. The staff are wonderful and the food is excellent. A family friendly venue that the kids enjoyed. The accommodation is nice, clean and the rooms are well kept. We will be heading back to your venue for sure. Thanks for a great stay.

Stayed: September 2015
