A disappointing stay but great animal sightings.
The location is beautiful, having not been there for a few years it was not as good as it had been. Paperbark, where we stayed had amazing staff and the food was great. The accomodation could do with a good clean and paint. Looking out of the bedroom window and seeing animals right there was wonderful.Checking in and out was quite difficult. One incident involved a manager arguing with american quests about the advertised web site price and the other with guests complaining about the food in the picnic basket that cost R 600 being still frozen. Not sure if we would return. The animal sightings were great. Generally the place needs maintenance.

10/10 Exceptional

This was our first time staying at Tala and we had a wonderful time. Since we were traveling for work and this was a two day getaway, we did not have a car. The staff was quite accommodating, picking us up so we could meet a friend for dinner at the Aloe Restaurant even though we were staying on the other side of the reserve (thank you, Maxwell!), arranging car pickup for our return to the airport, and picking us up to return to reception for check out. The food was wonderful and the staff, particularly Teresa at Paperbark, were exceptional. The front desk was quite kind and helpful.

Great service, unique experience
The location and rooms were amazing. The staff were very friendly, the only issue was the lack of access to facilities and a missing TV in the room

Beautiful Tala
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff are friendly and very helpful. We stayed in Leadwood Cottages and were impressed by the accommodation. Unfortunately, we did have some bad weather and our cottage leaked a little but the staff were quick to assist.

2/10 Poor

Stayed at Leadwood 3... beautiful setting and room. Although the finer detail and small touches have been missed. Being in the hotel industry I know that these are by biggest crowd pleasers. Advertised is turndown service which was not done at all.. Wifi is advertised your the room also had no internet. It is also advertised with a minibar. The only part of the mini bar we could locate we those and 5 drop milk triangles, other than that there was no fresh water or anything to drink. Biggest disgust is that soon chech I is the we were seated waiting for our key and other genetaleman walks I to check in...3 ladies facing our direction while watching a PC screen completely ignore the fact that there are paying customers needing something, when I tried to flag them down and call them out, the door was simply slid closed. Won't be back and would not recommend. I have been in the luxury hospitality industry for years no and my no means the beat but if never treated my guests in that manner.
