Being the only lodge nearby, they tend to overprice their service. They are in the position to overprice, being the only lodge/restaurant/holding the title «highest pub in Africa», but the service is just bad and unprofessional.
We started early in the morning with the Sani pass and wanted to eat breakfast at this lodge. First one waiter said the buffet breakfast was 120 rand per person (which is pricey, but we were hungry, so who gives a damn!), then the price was raised to 130 rand when another waiter charged us (saying that its the price). The first waiter who informed us about the price of 120 rand was not nearby for a while, and after paying the receipt she came asking for us to pay again. I dont mind the waiter asking if we paid, but such confusion and non-organized staff is just sad.
The beer is also pricey. 45 rand for a Maluti 0,66 in bottle. Some quality restaurants of Maseru has lower prices than this.
I was really disappointed by this place and very sad that the staff is so desoriented.
