Luiperdskloof is a very beautiful farm. Marcon River Lodge where we stayed was very disappointing. Although beautiful, the maintanace of the lodge was shocking and definetly does not qualify as a 4 Star and not worth the money that was spend. On arrival we weren't informed of activities available nor the cost there of. Just told us where we were allowed to walk and not to drive. Carpet and curtains were stained in chalet and haven't been washed in a while. Tiles against the showerwall in bathroom were loos and hanging by an thread, and infront of fire place in the room the tiles were broken in pieces and loose. We had to be careful when walking barefoot. On Sunday the Tuckshop and Restuarant were closed, could not go buy something or even eat something, nor could we do an activity if we wanted to as everything was closed. Again, we weren't informed of this on arrival. The lodge has s much potential but aren't maintained as it should be. Could be put to much better use. To say that it's a 4 Star Lodge would be lying to the visitors. VERY dissapointing and not worth the money spent.
