Reviews for Amorello Bush Golf Lodge5 guest reviews Reviews of
Our stay at Amorello Lodge was the most uncomfortable than any other place we have stayed at before. We ended up checking out 3 days before our planned checked out date. The self catering chalets are not well designed and badly built. They are not clean at all. The stairs are not in the good state to use, especially because there is only one bathroom on the ground floor and the bedrooms are all upstairs. Going down those stairs is very dangerous. The owner must look into that. Unfortunately, it's not a holiday place you can have a relaxing feeling. The service in the restaurant is also poor. The staff do not know how to provide good service. You can bet that they are not trained at all.
Not really a golf resort. A little bit old, pool water was not nice and rooms were not very clean. But food was good.
We travelled as a group of 4 adults and one 8 year old child and had the lion and leopard lodges for 5 nights. Highly delighted with both lodges but beware! You will also be sharing with geckos and bats amongst others! Ideal base for exploring Hluhluwe, St Lucia etc. Food at the lodge is excellent as is the service from the staff. Another excellent plus point was that sandwiches were made for us to collect at 5.30am one morning when we were leaving on an early safari. Many thanks to the staff member concrened who got up very early on our behalf - it was much appreciated. One negative was that on returning from said safari some 14 hours later we were unable to get a meal or seat at the lodge as it had taken over by the Durban Sharks Rugby team for a function. Surely someone could have mentioned this to us! This meant driving back to Hluhluwe which we had driven through an hour earlier to get a meal at the Protea Hotel. Said meal was excellent but not as good as the Amarello food! If you are not expecting five star accomodation at Amarello and are prepared to share with various wildlife then you will have a superb time at an excellent venue and also at a reasonable cost.
My family and I enjoyed our stay at the lodge. The room we stayed in was lovely, the beds comfortable and the staff very warm and helpful (and they spoke well of the owner, which is important to us). All at a very reasonable rate - we intend to visit again soon!!
Love the lodge. Staff super friendly. Ideal place for getting away from the hectic city.
