I was there for the first time 01/01/2018; we had to wait 2 and a half hours for lunch, only to find out that they forgot about our orders. It wasn't even busy at all. We literally had to walk out to ...the restaurant across the road, thank God their food was great... what a way to enter 2018. I'm never coming there again See More

Having the most incredible time at Pestana Lodge. Incredible views from our room on the river, great food and attentive and friendly staff.

Very poor service, slow in dinner servicing. There was no hot water availability in the lodge. When we complaint about that, no action taken. No cares about customer satisfaction.

Just completed our third stay at this hotel after travelling from the UK for extended photo shoot.

I read reviews from many clients which vary tremendously and wonder why some people really enjoy stay whilst others end up upset and dissatisfied in their stay.

Lets get things straight...this is Africa. Leave your expectations of five star luxury at home and embrace a culture much different from those you may enjoy in your own region.

Our stay at this hotel was enjoyable as usual and I am sure we had a better experience because we were warm and friendly with the staff and took the time to make ourselves known to them without being difficult or demanding. WE asked for problems to be resolved rather than demanded and found them willing, able and quick to resolve the few issues we have had over the last few visits.

One difficulty we had in earlier visits was the food was not always to our taste but happily this is now resolved with the appointment of a new chef who has turned the menu round and every meal we were able to enjoy several choices on the menu.

We recommend this hotel as a perfect stop to visit Kruger or as a stop off on your way into the park for your stay in the camps.

Our biggest disappointment this visit is the poor tv reception which remains unchanged over the last 3 years. Trivial considering where we are and what we are there for so its not a deal breaker.

I was here for a few days and had a great time. I appreciated the fact that on occasions where I was not happy about something, the staff quickly resolved the matter.

Beautiful hotel on the banks of the crocodile river.
Close to the Malalane gate. Awesome service and friendly staff.

I say this because they didn't want us. Stated they were fully booked for lunch which was BS and only let us in after we made a fuss. Stunning setting in need of R&M. Food arrived ahead of cutlery, s...erviettes and condiments. Dirty ashtray not cleared on food service. Chicken wings bland. Choc mouses out of a packet. There are so many people/organizations working very hard to promote tourism in this country - and then you get places like this that bombard the effort. See More

Lodge situated on a perfect spot. Garden in good condition. Buildings not maintained well, not cleaned. Furniture in poor condition. Staff is unprofessional and not trained well. Menu full of spelling... errors. Tables in dining room not cleaned - full of bread crumbs. See More

Well here we are after 2 days of travelling. All I can say after staying for 3 nights and having 2 nights to go is it may not be 5 star as some say but I would give it 4.9 star. Food excellent, servic...e impeccable, all requests responded to within 10 mins andI mean all requests and we are quite demanding without doubt, Staff are really friendly and informative and a great stay just less than a stones throw from the Malelane gate. As we Brits say bloody wonderful and spot on. Stayed at other 4 stars that are not anywhere as good
