A pleasant stay in an unpleasant location.

Port St Johns is very neglected and run down so it's not great if wanting to tour the area. The River Lodge is clean and well maintained. Very friendly and helpful staff. There is no access to restaurant during the day for an afternoon coffee or lunchtime meals which was disappointing. Food at dinnertime was very good. The cabins are very close to a very busy road so it's not quiet when sleeping. The cabins are very clean and comfortable.

Port St Johns River Lodge's response

Dear Carolyn,
Thank you for taking the time to review us. All comments, whether positive or negative is appreciated.
Our Restaurant is only open for breakfast and dinner during low season and only open for lunch during our high season which is December holidays. We therefore advise of the lovely restaurants available in town. Nonetheless, we appreciate the feedback.
Regards,
Port St Johns River Lodge

Goeie geriewe op die rivieroewer. Die dorp Port St Johns is taamlik vervalle en bied min, maar die omgewing is mooi.

Ons het by wyse van afwisseling deur die Ou Transkei en Oos-Kaap na ons vakansiebestemming gereis. Port St. Johns River Lodge bied waarde-vir-geld, maar die reisiger moet kennis neem hy/sy is in vir 'n Afrika-ervaring in die ware sin van die woord!

Baie netjies.

Mooi area om te bly, veilig en goed versorg. Sal weer bly vir n paar aande as in die area is. Swembad, trampoline en tafel tennis vir die kinders. Die strand in die area is nie vreeslik nice gewees toe ons daar was nie. Beveel aan om eerder n paar aande tys in die lodge te spandeer vir rus en/of oorslaap.

Immaculate grounds, well maintained.

The food is fine for carnivores. But health conscious, vegan or vegetarian diets would be a problem.

Very neat and safe environment.

The family had a great time. Situated on the banks of the river making it ideal for fishing with children. Breakfast was great. I personally felt it was a bit over priced considering the space within the apartment.

Skoon gerieflike verblyf langs die rivier.

Skoon, goed toegeruste "log cabin" in n goed versorgde oord. Bestuur was baie vriendelik en gasvry. Sal altyd weer daar gaan bly. Kan die lodge ten sterkste aanbeveel.

Beautiful environment with friendly people.

First visit at Port St Johns. The wet weather and power outages but a little damper on the visit. Will definitely recommend Port St Johns River Lodge.

Pragtige omgewing met vriendelike mense.

Eerste besoek aan Port St Johns. Die nat weer en kragonderbrekings het besoek bietjie belemmer. Sal egter Port St Johns River Lodge aanbeveel.

Netjies en skoon, staf gee om vir die plek en is vriendelik en hulpvaardig.

Die verblyf hier was fantasties, 'n mens kan sien die eienaars is betrokke in die dag tot dag bestuur. Klein details wat jou lewe vergemaklik is orals, netjiese vlerkvrye staal rooster op die braaiplek wat elke dag skoon geskrop word. In die storte is daar 'n blou en rooi teël aangebring om die warm en koue kant van die kraan aan te dui. Die beddegoed is mooi skoon en nuut. Die staf is wonderlik, van die bestuurders wat jou ontvang tot die mense wat jou huisie kom skoonmaak. Mens kan sien die mense wat daar werk is trots op die plek en geniet hul werk.

Ontvangs was vriendelik, maar die kamers muf en bedompig.

Ons is vriendelik ontvang en die kamers was wel netjies maar het kwaai na muf geruik. Geen vensters was oop nie, die swembad was vuil en ontbyt was nie op standaard nie. Ons het gevra vir 'n kospakkie met 'n kaas-en-ham-broodjie met 'n vrug. Ons kry 'n worsbroodrolletjie met roerbraai-oorskietvleis en geen vrug nie. Ons was baie teleurgesteld. Daar is die mooi rivier en geen aktiwiteite nie.

Port St Johns River Lodge's response

Liewe Marica Hillerman,

Eerstens is dit teleurstellend om te verneem dat ons gaste nie gelukkig was nie, in die somer maande beleef Port St Johns baie hoe temprature en met gepaartgaande hoe humiditeit, mag kamers wat toe staan wel bedompig voorkom, waarvoor ons onverskoning aanbied. Wat die swembad aanbetref kan ek jou verseker dit word ten minste twee keer per dag skoongemaak, en ek persoonlik kan nie saamstem dat die swembad vuil was nie.Die kospakkie moes of per abuis ongeruil gewees het met n ander gas sin en aangesien ek geen klagte van julle ontvang het nie, kon ek dit nie regstel nie, nietemin bied ek weereens verskoning aan.Ek verseker jou dat meeste van ons gaste baie teverede met ons verblyf en diens is en dank jou vir die terugvoering.

Groete

Geen aircon op de kamer.

Vriendelijke mensen, hoofgebouw is gedateerd. We konden met 5 personen GEEN 2 en 3 persoonskamer boeken (verplicht 2x2 persoons en 1x1 persoons). We kregen zelf een driepersoonskamer voor gebruik 2 personen. Beetje vreemd.

Netjies; skoon; aangename en behulpsame personeel; mooi lodge.

Die lodge is 'n oase in andersins vrot Port St Johns met paaie wat 'n 4x4 regverdig.

Very nice and relaxing place, owners are very helpful

After an exhausting hiking tour along the Wild Coast I needed a quiet and comfortable accommodation to relax in - and I definitely found that here!
