    Impressed with the reception staff who were tremendous. Always willing to go the extra mile to help. Example I was a day late because of having an upset stomach and I expected to have the 90% charge in these situations. The receptionist went the extra mile and spoke with the owner and the charge was waved. That is the type genuine down to earth people working here. They do everything possible to make your stay a happy one. They can't provide everything a town hotel might provide because they are situated high up an isolated mountain. But they do their best and more than make up for any lack by homeliness, a warm smile and a genuine concern for the welfare and comfort of their guests. A very enjoyable stay. My only regret was that I did not have the time to stay longer. very well done to all the staff at this value for money and convenient lodge situated with amazing views when ithe weather is fine and a bundle of laughs and great hospitality when the weather is foggy or wet. this is a real mountain lodge on a gloriously beautiful mountain. Well done all at Wisiehoek Mountain Lodge. Very impressed.

    Bon établissementt en montagne pour faire des hikes. Le personnel est super accueillant. Les chambres sont super bien et intimes et le coté rustique apporte son charme. La qualité des repas est acceptable et les prix sont très abordables.

    Il faisait chaud dans la chambre en ce mois de décembre. Pas de climatisation. A la limite... Mais au moins un ventilateur aurait été utile. Difficile de trouver le repos dans cette chambre quand il fait chaud pendant la journée. La chaleur reste à l'intérieur.
