Staff was unfriendly most of the time and at first not willing to help us (e.g. with a transportation to the city or with dinner reservations).... only after several requests they finally got us a dinner reservation and a transport which was totally overpriced compared to Uber, which we used from then on. The room was a dark hole... a...

Situated in a lovely environment with a first class wine and golf estate on the property. The experience was pricey due to the location and fascilities and season. Terroir restaurant is superb but lodge and golfcourse meals are average. Would come again and can be higkly recommended.

Its part of a winery estate and located between the wine cellars and a golf course. The villas and apartments are well designed and furnished. The bistro there is good, yet excellent value for money. We enjoyed our dinner snd breakfast there.

The staff as well, were so friendly and helpful at all times. Thanks a bunch. I would for sure recommend De Zalze Lodge to all family and friends. Thanks.

We stayed for only one night (fortunately not more) and booked a superior room. The price of the room is compared to other resorts and hotels very high which is why our expectations were rather high. Upon arrival in our room we were however shocked. It was tidy but very dark with no view and obviously renovation was some time...

We stayed in Viognier 1, a two bedroom suite alongside the first hole. Disadvantage. when greenskeepers start their work (5-6 am) you have a bedroom first row. But you get used to it. If you want an absolut quiet room, Arthroskopie for. The staff is helpful and competent. Litteltroubles were 4 days without phone and two weeks without espresso machine...

I always enjoy this venue and the food but the price had gone up by 65% on last year . The restaurant food is very good but the room that I stayed in was going a little tatty and needed some repair and maintenance

Rooms need refurbishment and facilities modernised. Breakfast selection and service were great. Room had no view at all which was disappointing. Parking is limited hence your vehicle ends up being baked by the sun.

“you can clean your bathrooms and bedrooms better. No maintenance was done. Carpet was torn, toilet was held in place with silicone and was lose. Soap decanters were dirty. bedding was damaged and stained. I will not recommend this place. It was definitely not worth the money we paid.”
