Rustig en ontspannend.

Dit was baie lekker. My seuntjie het die vlakvarke so geniet. Sal dit aanbeveel vir almal.

Was 'n magical plek.

Tlou Lodge het ons harte gesteel. Daar is soveel om te doen en die gidse en personeel is fabulous. Beplan al klaar ons volgende naweek daar. Als is skoon en netjies en die natuur is beeldskoon rondom jou. Kan nie genoeg van die plek kry nie!

Very enjoyable stay, excellent value for money.

Very clean and neat unit and well equipped for the stay. Wonderful to wake up and be graced by the presence of pheasants, warthogs and njala in the garden!

Lekker verblyf, braaitoerusting en skottelgoedseep kort aandag.

Skottelgoedseep sal goed wees. Braaigeriewe limited.

Beste Arno,

Ons is bly julle het lekker gebly.

Ek wil jou ook bedank vir jou terugvoer, ons sal na die braaigeriewe kyk. Op die stadium is daar 'n losstaande braaier en ook 'n rooster wat in die boma gebruik kan word.

Die eenheid word daagliks gediens wat skottelgoed was insluit. Dit is egter 'n selfsorgeenheid en skottelgoedseep word nie verskaf nie.

Groete,
Tlou Lodge 150 - bestuur

We had a wonderful time at Tlou Lodge. It was perfect for our family. The house was neat and tidy and everything in working order. DStv stopped working for a short time but we contacted the person on duty and it was sorted out promptly. Will definitely go back.

Aangenaam verras en het dit baie geniet.

Dit was baie lekker en het dit baie geniet. Ek het een probleem gehad en dit was dat die sleutel van die eenheid nie beskikbaar was soos voorgeskryf nie en het twee ure daardeur verloor totdat ander plane gemaak was om sleutels vir eenheid te verkry.

Pleasantly surprised and really enjoyed it.

It was very nice and enjoyed it a lot. I had one problem and that was that the key to the unit was not available as instructed and lost two hours as a result until other plans were made to obtain keys for unit.

Beste Attie

Dankie vir jou terugvoer, ons is bly julle het dit geniet.

Ek is baie jammer vir die ongerief rondom die sleutel. Om sulke ongerief te vermy vra ons juis dat die besprekings vorm, 3 dae voor aankoms voltooi en terug gestuur word.

Groete

Het nie die gevoel van die bosveld gehad nie.

Die eenheid was mooi skoon. Maar die foto's op die website is baie misleidend. Die foto's skep die indruk dat die eenheid omring is met bosveld. Maar wanneer mens op die patio sit het jy 'n uitsig reg op die parkeerarea. Glad nie die idee wat die foto's skep nie. Baie teleurstellend, nie die geld werd nie.

Didn't have the feel of the woodland.

The unit was pretty clean. But the photos on the website are very misleading. The photos give the impression that the unit is surrounded by woodland. But when you sit on the patio you have a view right on the parking area. Not at all the idea the photos create. Very disappointing, not worth the money.

Beste Suzel,
Baie dankie vir jou terugvoer.
Jammer dat dit jou ervaring was.
Ons is uiteraard sentraal geleë en loop afstand van Mabalingwe se hoof geriewe wat ons ligging baie populêr maak.
Beste wense.

We fully enjoyed the getaway.

The accommodation was perfect, had everything one would need to have a great relaxing stay. Sitting on the porch sipping our morning coffee we were greeted by a family of warthogs, mongoose and an array of bird life. Thank you for the memorable weekend.

Very relaxing, with all necessary amenities nearby.

If a deposit is paid for inventory, in case things go missing or are broken, it would be nice to make sure everything that is supposed to be in the lodge is there to start off with. Maybe mosquito nets on a window, seeing there is no air-conditioning and it would be nice to open windows at night.
