"Ons verblyf by The Ledges was om die minste te se baie teleurstellend.In die eerste plek het ons nie die eenhede gekry soos ons bespreuk het nie.Verder was die badkamers nie skoon nie.....handoeke was vuil, stort nie skoongemaak.Koppies en glase sowel as vaddoek in kombuis was vuil."

"I had reserved 20 days before via internet...When we arrived&nbsp; we had to wait in front of the gate&nbsp; it was closed and the ring did not work. Finally after&nbsp; calling them&nbsp; they opened the gate.( 20 minutes waiting)&nbsp; and we were asked what is the purpose of our visit!!No possibility of having dinner and&nbsp; the only restaurant is about 7 km away and not easy to find.There was a bad smell in the room ( diesel oil)&nbsp;We wanted to be early in the mountain for hiking but&nbsp; we had to wait untill 8 o'clock for breakfast."

"The lodge is generally well kept and service from the staff is superb, however the place is in a bad state of disrepair.The pool pump was not work and the pool was green. It seems the pool pumps was not working for months.The place was infested with ants, constantly requiring cleaning. The first night the ants got into our bags, we were then moved to another room, which although better still had a problem.In order to lock the door one has to lift the door up and lock at the same time. it seems the door hinges and locks have been replaced with old used ones.The shower door was missing a section and thus could not be closed.The bath room door did not have a lock.The restaurant only operates at breakfast time which starts at 8am till 9h30, there after it is closed unless orders are placed at the front desk. Several cars pulled up for lunch or supper and drove off when they found the restaurant closed.The lodge has lots of great potential, with a great staff, I feel the owners do not invest in the lodge hence the state of disrepair"

"Well where do we start..The following is constructive ....At one stage there were 9 dogs running around ,making a nuisance of themselves and barking as if they were being paid to bark. ( 24 hrs)It was dusty, draftee and in need of LOTS of TLC...and ants were all over the place.Electrical wiring was untidy, and switching is weird ,and cupboard door fell offand hit me on the head,when I opened it. It was replaced by a curtain.Steps are of uneven height , and often caused a stumbleFront door does not open correctly, it has to be picked up when you open it.May be it was just the unit we were in . I hope the rest are not like that.This is not what we expected from" Safari now backed Accommodation. As we have been used to in the past"
"Different strokes for different folks"

"Thought long and hard about what kind of review to write about The Ledges. We stayed there in December and at the time the experience we had was so far below our expectations that is has taken a few months to be calm enough to write a rational review.In short, I wouldn't recommend staying there to anyone. The most apt description for the Ledges, is that it is very, very tired.The first night that we stayed there, my wife and son were put in a separate room to me as they "had made a mistake on the bookings" . In that room, they had to endure a delightful smell emanating from the toilet which was about four feet from the bed.The following nights were then spent in a unit that although larger was also in the same state of tiredness that the other one was. The cutlery and crockery looked and felt like it had not been replaced since the place opened, the bed in the main bedroom had a plank under it so as to stop the mattress falling through. Bedding very tired. And so the list goes on.......As a comparison another place that we stayed at was technically more basic than the ledges but we had a far better experience there because the essentials in the unit were up to date. New bedding, cutlery and crockery that was reasonably new.The only things that looked moderately new there is the new thatching and coats of paint on the exterior walls.But looking at the other reviews it is very apparent that it seems to resonate with some people. So different strokes for different folks I guess.For us, if we could give it a negative star rating we would."

"The Ledges is too good for its price. I was very impressed by the way the staff took care of us. They were always there when we needed help. the place is under renovations and the potential to make it even better is clear.I was particularly impressed by the location of the place. it is close to most entertainment activities we needed. It is the best place to take your mind off the city life.I would recommend this place to more people who want peace. I would also come back again, especially in winter to experience the cold."
