Hi there, I just wanted to send through a formal complaint about a lodge that is advertised through your site. Rametsi Eco lodge, I booked there for 4 nights over the Easter weekend and paid for two and received shocking service from the owner. I booked due to the fact that the accommodation on their site looked lovely as well as the facilities they offered which included canoeing.
On arrival we were put in very small, un private farm style room (which I had never seen pics of) along with lights and fans not working in the unit. The beds were rock hard and I was told that the canoes were broken and we couldn't use them. I was utterly furious as I had emailed Siennie earlier in the week and she had confirmed that the canoes were available.
We drove 2.40 hours out of Joburg to end up in a very uncomfortable situation. We decided to stay the night and look for alternative accommodation in the area, we packed up and left before 10am the following morning and I called to tell her we were leaving and asked for our money back for the night which we hadn't stayed and she flatly refused. She was very rude and I would like you to add my review onto your site to avoid this happening to anyone else! I have told her I will report her to hello peter and ensure that people are not SCAMMED like I was.
Please ensure that something is done about the false advertising on your site as it was just unacceptable and our time away turned out to be a strenuous and unpleasant experience thanks to the owner.
I stayed at Rametsi as part of the Mad Sandton Youth Team.Villie received us well late into the Night at around 23.45.Our stay there was amazing.We wemt to the Dam via the mountain the hiking route.Who can forget the round fire chat in the warmth of the night with the full moon.I will definitely pay a visit again in my personal capacity.Thankis Willie keep up the good work.Its only 30mins away from Sun City,
Baie dankie, uitgerus. Willie ons het heerlik gekamp!
We can give the public a total different impression of our lovely stay at Rametsi Lodge.My wife and I stayed over for the weekend at the lodge found the place in a wonderful condition since the new owner Willie van Wijk took over.He was extremely helpfull although we arrived at lodge on the friday night at 23:45 to recieve us in person at the gate with his flash light.The camping grounds are very well maintained, clean and neat.There was propper lighting and the ablution blocks were immaculate.The game drive was amazing, we did the 4x4 route, and the dam, although a distance from the lodge, has been well maintained.The bird life is absolutely amazing and a must see for every bird lover. Willie has a vast knowledge on the bird and animal life in the area and advised us accordingly. Rametsi is now under new management and we would like to thank Willie and his staff for a most memorable stay. Rametsi will definitely be seeing us again. Thanks Willie.
Wow, were we suprised. At first glance you would say that the lodge is nothing special untill you meet the people and explore the surroundings. What a wonderfull farm, full of birdlife and enough game to see. The 4x4 routes are exciting and eventfull.
We enjoyed the stay so much we will surely book a whole weekend with the family to try out the Boma!!
Thanks a lot Willie and the staff for your hospitality!!
