Views like Monument Valley, good hotel

The area has buttes and mesas made of exactly the same sandstones, and eroded in the same way as those in the South West of USA. I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived here for a 1 night stop to break up the driving. The lodge was built nicely onto the side of a mesa. It offered exceptional views around.

The rooms were well furnished except that they were too small for the furniture that were put in. The main problem was it gets too hot at night (being built on a rock) and the ceiling fan had little effect being mounted too high and filtered by the mosquito net over the bed. They really need a pedestal fan.

Meals were buffets which had a good range and was well cooked, except half of dishes for dinner were spicy. They took no notice of any special meals requests, even for low fat milk.

Vinger klip Ugh

I have given you a blow by blow account of this place.

Filthy dirty, disinterested staff, insecure rooms. facilities in the rooms did not work.

Poor water supply, no plugs in the basins, fan did not work. Dining room disgusting. table mats had last week's inground food in them, table cloth stained and smelly.

NEVER AGAIN !!!!!! food was nothing to write home about. UGH !!!!!

Vingerklip Lodge review

What a surprise to find this beautiful pearl of a Lodge in these stunning surroundings.

Lovely private luxurious chalets, beautifully decorated inside - pity we only had one day. The (2) swimming pools are stunning, as are the views basically from everywhere.

The Eagle's Nest up the mountain is a must for a sundowner and preferably for dinner too, with glorious 360' views, all in all very romantic. Book ahead 'cause there's only a few tables.

The expression "style over substance" applies here.

Nice rooms, but we first had no water in the shower. They fixed this in the evening, but there was no hot water until they fixed it just before we checked out the next morning. The safe did not work.

The staff often seemed bored with their jobs.

Stunning location

Nice spot and well presented. Gaenor was bitten by a scorpion on the first night and the concern was that no one seemed to know what to do in the circumstances. Luckily there was a Guide there with another party who was able to help. But no ready access to a doctor and the first aid kit consisted of 5 tubes of Germolene and a bottle of Dettol. Gaenor was in considerable pain and we were able to reduce pain because we had the necessary tablets with us. Not a very good experience and luckily the scorpion was not the small deadly venomous one.

Otherwise a nice pleasant place to stay.

Vingerklip Lodge review

As with Waterberg, the Vingerklip might be worth a drive for a day visit but not for an overnight.

Rooms were good, pool nice but the rock formation not worth more that a couple of hours. We did make reservations at the Eagle's Nest. The walk up and view from the top is wonderful but dinner at the restaurant pretty terrible. It's all cooked below and shipped up to steam tables. A better decision would have been to walk up for the sunset and have dinner in the restaurant below.

Really, we didn't think that it warranted an overnight.

Vingerklip Lodge review

The grounds have a feel of "The House of Usher".
Small rooms but great view.
Swimmingpools not very well maintained. Parts of the facilities were closed.
Eagles Nest Restaurant was nice - great views and simple but very tasty food.
Restaurant on site was poor and the service non existent!
One night would have been more than enough.
Safe had no battery and despite our many complaints not repaired in three days.

Lovely place to stay.

The lodge is set on a hill with lots of different levels. The gardens are lovely and it is a wonderful setting.

There is a waterhole that can be viewed from the rooms.
The buffet was fine for vegetarians.

Vingerklip Lodge review

We had planned to drive out for the day, but decided to walk to the Vingerklip have a leisurely lunch and chill out by the pool.

Lodges excellent, perhaps they could have a kettle in the room for that early morning cup of tea but all in all they had everything that one could need. Great views. Dinner at the Eagles Nest is to be recommended and well worth the climb
