Vrek lekker gewees en sal hul beslis weer gebruik vir 'n lekker wegbreek.

Paul, die eienaar, het verseker dat ons gemaklik is en het dadelik geantwoord as ons iets nodig gehad het. Hul kampstaanplekke is baie, baie netjies en sal ook beslis daar gaan kamp.

Lekker rustig in die bos vir 'n vinnige wegbreek.

Rustig in die middel van die natuur.

Alles wat mens nodig het om rustig in die natuur te ontspan, en naby genoeg aan ander aktiwiteite om n heerlike vakansie af te rond.

Dit was heerlike naweek vol avontuur. Aangesig tot aangesig met 'n olifant en 'n jagluiperd gekom! Sal Hayward's Game Lodge beslis aanbeveel en graag weer daar gaan kuier.

Lekker gekuier.

Alhoewel ons baie lekker gebly het, het die volgende tog gepla. Die air-con het met die 1ste dag al begin drup - ongelukkig is die air-con bo die bed geïnstalleer, dus drup dit op jou kop en op die beddegoed. Ons het die bed toe weggetrek. Die deur se slot het gesukkel en wou nie altyd sluit nie. Daar is nie 'n plekkie waar jy jou handdoeke in badkamer kan ophang nie ook nie plek vir jou vadoek nie. Beddegoed was ook nie op standaard nie.

Nice bungalow with bad attention to detail.

Paul was very helpful and the place has the potential to be excellent, but attention to detail is sadly lacking. The electric DB board has no cover, the bathroom mirror has fallen off, the drain is close to blocked (it might be a full septic tank, because the toilet also empties slowly). The bath inspection hatch cover and wall plugs are skew. Otherwise, pristine environment, but I'm glad my family didn't join me.

Not satisfied.

This is not a place for small children as said. None of the motorgates were working, I had to get out of my vehicle and open both gates manually. (Owner said that the gates would be fixed the day on which we arrived). There is no reception to book in by, no one shows you where your chalet is. The owner said he will be with you in 20 min, he only showed up 5 hours later. Aircon was leaking on the bed the entire time we were there. My husband had to clean the aircon filters. A piece of cornice was hanging off the ceiling, the one cupboard handle was broken so I had to put a chair in front of it so that my toddler does not hurt herself. The outside shower did not have a shower head, and the pipes were leaking. The light outside by the braai was not working, got told that he does not have spares. No hot water in the kitchen, the sink was loose, very low water pressure in the chalet. No TV or Wi-fi as advertised. The grass was only cut about 500 mm around the chalet so my toddler had to stay on the stoep or inside the entire time. We could not take a guided game drive, as there were no other people and they only take 4 people at a time, we have to pay for 4 people (we were 3 people). No self-drives as said per email. The chalet was clean. This lodge will be fine for a 1 night stay over or if you need a place to sleep for a business trip.

Disappointed.

We were very disappointed. Not at all like photos on advertisement, not worth the money. Problems we encountered: 1) Air-conditioning was too small and insufficient for size of chalet. It was melting hot. 2) Fridge did not work properly, could not keep our food cold. We had to throw away most of our food, as it went off, due to fridge not working. 3) We were only supplied with a small amount of toilet paper and the dish wash liquid holder in kitchen was empty. I had to drive and find a general store for toilet paper and dish wash liquid. 3) Our unit door could not lock, therefore, we slept at night with an unlocked door. 3) Gate access to premises was not working, kept on breaking down, we had to keep on phoning the owner, to help us get into the premises. 4) Nice bathroom, but water supply to fill bath ran so slowly, it took forever to fill. 5) No hand towel rails in bathroom to hang towels. 6) Bedding was old and sheets were torn. 7) Bath towels did not smell clean. We used our own. Very disappointing stay.

Dit was heerlik.

Hayward's was vir ons 'n heerlike wegbreek en die eenhede is baie netjies en die uitleg is baie oulik. Ons het heerlik in ons eie boma langs die vuur gesit en die ekstra bonus van die buitebad was 'n groot bederf. Al wat wel gepla het was die geraas van die pad wat reg langs die Lodge verbyloop. Ten spyte daarvan dat dit in die Dinokeng-area geleë is, (waar ons gehoop het nie so baie, konstante verkeer sal wees nie) het die pad baie geraas. Dit het ongelukkig die bosgevoel heeltemal bederf.

Rustig.

Eenheid wat ek bespreek het was beskikbaar met stukkende badkamerdeur sonder 'n voordeurslot. Ons het verskuif na 'n ander. Geen handdoekrelings of vadoekhakkies. Daar is geen seepbakkies nie. Die lugversorger was beslis nie 'n voldoende vir die grote van die vertrek nie.

Ons het dit baie geniet!

Die chalet was pragtig, veral die badkamer! Rustigheid was heerlik met voëltjies in bome rondom die chalet. Het self die jakkalse hoor skree. Die personeel was baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Een van die manne het vinnig na ons aankoms vir ons hout gebring en selfs ons vuurtjie aan die gang gekry. Ons het die wildsrit baie geniet. Die enigste probleem was dat daar geen handdoekrelings in die badkamer was nie, ook nie plek om die vadoeke in die kombuis op te hang nie.

Geen van die Big 5 gesien nie, rotte het ons splinternuwe bakkie se drade af gekou.

Die lodge self is mooi en al die geriewe is daar, maar ek was net baie teleurgesteld omdat ons die hele naweek gery het in die Dinokeng-reservaat en geen van die Groot 5 gesien het nie. Toe ons Sondagoggend wou ry toe voel my man daar is niks krag in ons splinternuwe bakkie wat ons 2 dae terug gekoop het nie. Ons het toe gesien dat of 'n rot of 'n eekhoring die pypies binne die enjin gevreet het. Ons het maar op genade huis toe gery en die bakkie toe terug gevat Toyota toe waar hulle ook bevestig het dis 'n rot wat die pypies stukkend gevreet het. Gelukkig het Toyota die pypies gratis vervang .Die restuarante in die omgewing in die Dinokeng se kos is ook nie op goeie standaard nie alhoewel die pryse bietjie ridiculous is. Ek sal Hayward Lodge aanbeveel vir 'n funksie of verjaarsdagpartytjie maar as jy volop wild wil sien, smaaklike kos wil geniet en in luxury wil bly asook 24 uur room service wil hê, is die lodges in die Pilansberge eerder waar jy alles verseker sal kry.
