Unfortunately my stay at Lothlorien Cottage was not that good. 1. There was a mess up with where and how we could get the key as we were on a touring holiday and did not receive the email from the owner. 2. I had a nasty experience with a Vervet Monkey upon arrival. It entered the cottage from the top window which was left open by the caretaker. It was sitting on the top railing and urinated on me. That freaked me out completely as I have been attacked and seriously injured by a Vervet Monkey in 2012.3. The bedding was not clean - we felt as if someone slept in it before us.4. The total...

More carpets should be put down as the floors are really cold. Also the bedding needs to be washed on a regular basis as do the floors. The floors were filthy dirty. Cutlery and crockery also needs to get washed on a regular basis, lots of stuff was full of cob webs and dusty.

Very lovely rondavel, needs a bit t.l.c. Braai area needs fixing.Enjoyed our stay.

There were only 5 towels, instead of 6. There was only one plug in the kitchen for two sinks. The caretaker’s servive was very good. The cutlery can improve. I missed a salad bowl, a wooden spoon and better glasses. The thatch roof gave the kids that slept upstairs a bad allergic reaction. We wanted to sit outside, but the table at the braai area is very run down and needs atttention. There was only three beach chairs to sit on outside.

A lovely secluded cottage with all the amenities you need for self catering purposes. Well maintained and clean. Close enough to Hogsback main street and a perfect base from which to explore the area with all its waterfalls and hiking trails. Will definitely make use of this venue again.
