Although there was a mix-up regarding the number of tables I requested I'm pleased the lakeside staff were quick to attend to the matter and resolved it most timeously.

We had specifically requested window seats, twice in a row on two of our reservations. However we always end up in the middle of the room very far from the window, with all the window seats occupied at 1pm on the dot.

I would like to extend my sincere thanks to Bianca who organised a very special setting for us - we were suitably impressed. The rose petals was a very special touch... Thank you Bianca!

The food did not live up to expectations. Everything else matched the price but the food wasn't even close.

We had an absolutely superb breakfast at Meadow Green Restaurant, everything was fresh and tasty and we would highly recommend it as a wonderful spot to meet with family and friends - only little niggle was that the coffee pot ran empty too quickly (delicious coffee!!!)

When I booked the lunch for the Sunday I was aware of the buffet but I was told on the phone when I booked that the a la carte menu would be available which it wasn't, very disappointed.

The meat was cold and very tough. The vegetables tasted like nothing especially the broccoli and carrots. But mostly the cold food was what disappointed us. The oxtail was great though, but also too cool for a winter's day. There were uncooked cake flour or baking powder in the sticky toffee pudding, and also no warm custard? Only low warm cream. Really not value for this kind of money.

My wife and I celebrated our 2nd year anniversary at Irene Country Lodge. The first nights buffet dinner was an absolute treat, and the service impeccable. We've eaten at the 7 star hotel in Dubai, and this was better. Breakfast on Saturday was also buffet with a nice variety, but the service (while still good) did not come close to that of the previous night. We had a massage of Saturday, and this was my main gripe. The lockers were all broken and we were left waiting with no explanation while they prepared the treatment room. I expected a slightly higher level of service in the Spa as they have many awards in the reception area. On Saturday evening we ordered in-room dining as my wife had the flu. When ordering, we were told that some items were no longer available and that the menu was outdated. From what was a large selection we were left with a few choices. The burgers we ordered were delivered speedily, however the patties were tough and tasteless, as if made from frozen paties and not fresh. Overall however, we had a nice stay, and the service is generally of a high standard. I would recommend with the reservations above.

I had the fillet steak with the port jus. I can honestly say it was one of the best things I've ever eaten. The service was excellent too. Thank you

I don't think it is value for money. If you pay R250 pp for breakfast I do expect a way better service. We had to ask for everything, for example if we didn't read about the champagne and salmon on the website we wouldn't have gotten it. We were 10 people and asked if we can get a coffee flask for the table but we were not allowed and had to walk to get coffee. There were also basically no pastries left by the time we finished our breakfast. I think this is unacceptable for the price you pay.

the hosting of parties at the open garden restaurant area with guest allowed to bring in their music equipment is not welcoming to other guests . please allocate a venue for such event ( example the closed gazebo) and have them isolated from the open restaurant area. I love the place and the scene but this parties at the open restaurant area with music ( sometimes loud) is not what I leave home and get to your lovely place for. the open garden restaurant menu needs some improvement ( no fish or white meat, limited vegetables, no variety)
