Nice Location - Bad memories
Reception Staff - Casually dressed, made no attempt to familiarise us with facility. Units poorly maintained. Grass around unit not cut for some time.

Lovely stay
The accommodation was very clean and the self-service catering equipment was good. All the staff very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The shower could do with the mould being removed but that was minor. The welcome pack in the room should include a map of the site with evacuation points marked on it, to back up the description. We had all our meals included but although the menu was extensive not everything was available which was disappointing. As they had been busy the previous weekend and it was off-peak season they should have provided a reduced menu. The restaurant is very large and during quiet periods is should be screened off to create a better atmosphere. However, I cannot fault the waiting staff for the quality of service which was very good.

It's a great lodge that's not being well maintained. The kitchen needs a revamp. The pool looked like it wasn't cleaned for days. The lady at check in and check out never smiled even once when we were there.

Nice stay just at Pilanesberg gate
The Chalet accomodation was good for the price. Breakfast was fine. One thing I loved was the proximity to Pilanesberg and greenery around the accomodation. Good for family with kids.

Exceptional 10,0
Family stay in the Pilanesburg.
Pilanesburg is an amazing destination. The kids really enjoyed the playground and being able to cycle around the campsite. The pool is huge and the breakfast at the restaurant was pretty good. The only downside is the chalet accommodation looks a bit outdated and probably needs a facelift. The lodge is very close to the entrance of the park which makes it very easy to start an early game drive during the day. There is abundance of game right outside the lodge on the other side of the fence. We spotted rhinos, elephants and a brown hyena one morning within 5 minutes.
