The place was very private and had beautiful view of the lake. The room was a suite and provided the luxury as was advertised. The staff arranged breakfast as per our dietary needs. It was a very beautiful place. Just small enough to provide privacy but large enough to experience comfort. We would recommend it to others.

We stayed for two nights in August. One of the best accommodation establishments in Wilderness. Room 5 is big, free Wi-Fi, balcony has view of the lake. Close to the Wilderness National Park and the beaches. The breakfast was excellent!

Accommodation is very good but without a carpet in the place, the wooden and tiled flooring is very cold. No heating facilities in the rooms so very cold in winter. Although dstv is advertised there are only 4 channels on very old T's. Although the venue is called Lodge on the like, a more accurate name would be Lake views....

We booked the Honeymoon Suite and were blown away. When you walk into the lodge you over look the infinity pool and the lake. You have to take a moment because it really is stunning. Great for a couple getaway and will definitely be back!!

Perfection, beautiful rooms, wonderful views, especially of sunrise and sunset. Take your binoculars, lake, bird life ... away from everything. Wellness spa if you are so inclined, close to the Wilderness, the beach, holiday magic ... beautiful breakfast with a view. Entrance hall takes your breath away - pool that seems to end in the lake. Highly recommended.
