We stayed for 2 nights - our room was clean, with a view of the mountains. Breakfast was great and plentiful. Dinner was divine- large portions - best Eisbine around. Great Value for money. The staff were friendly and helpful and willing to share local knowledge A down to earth, comfortable lodge.

It is challenging to be objective after a sleepless night. Mattress in our room had lost its spring long ago, squeaking at our every turn, taps turning on itselves, musty smell, overall quite depressing. Not the cleanest and very dated. Maybe other rooms offer more comfort and cleanliness but I don't think we'll be back anytime soon.

We had a great stay. Bar staff were friendly and stayed up late. Breakfast was fresh and plenty to eat. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Very close to the centre of everything. Check in was prompt and invoice was ready on departure

We have used this hotel on numerous occasions. Rooms clean and comfortable. Nice view from the top rooms. Advisable to book ahead when there are events in clarens. Breakfast is a buffet and mains ordered from kitchen. Friendly staff.

We arrived at the Maluti Mountain Lodge and we were greeted by a lady who helped us with our booking. They were very accommodating as we had booked into another place which had a problem and we couldn't stay there. The people were friendly and our rooms were nice, more than enough space and facilities for 2 people staying in...

This 3* hotel does not even deserve 1*. It comes nowhere close to the 3* Protea Hotel or 3* Golden Gate hotel. The breakfast is disgusting for a 3* hotel. No buffet, only eggs, 3 rashers streaky bacon, grilled tomato and TINNED mushrooms with a GREASY DEEP FRIED cheesgriller. The only good thing about the breakfast was the eggs. There...

Friendly folk and rooms are neat - But grounds and surrounding gardens by bungalows/Rooms further up require a bit more attention. Breakfast is really nothing to write home about - In actual fact pretty average. My TV switched on - But I have yet to have been able to find a station.

We chose this hotel to stay at for Easter. We'd stayed there a few times before. The last at reception on arrival was very sweet but came across very desperate for us to pay the balance of our bill. This alerted me to the clientele who frequent the place. In the afternoon I took a walk down memory lane, only...
