Central Lodge review

We were given a self catering apartment which was clean but basic. The staff on reception were very off hand when we arrived but we found all other staff to be courteous and attentive. We ate in the evening at Central Lodge and the food was fine, breakfast was basic but perfectly acceptable.

From here we visited the Giants Playground and Quiver Tree Forest which are very close to the town and both were excellent visits.

When we bought the permit for the Quiver Tree Forest at Greganius Farm we discovered that the farmer had 4 cheetah which were fed daily at 4.00pm (this is not in any guide book) so we went to the feeding session and, with other visitors, were allowed into the enclosure to get up very close to the cheetahs!

Welcome break at Central Lodge

Central Lodge was very easy to find, had a certain character & safe parking in an enclosed courtyard very close to the rooms.

It was comfortable and perfectly adequate for breaking the journey south to Fish River. The staff tried very hard to please.

Overnight stay at Central Lodge, Keetmanshoop

A convenient place for an overnight stop. The room was comfortable and the food good.

Most members of staff were friendly and welcoming and the owner/manager was involved and keen to have comments from us.

Central Lodge review

Young but inexperienced restaurant and bar staff, but they tried very hard to help. That said the rooms were spacious and very clean. We had a nice few hours after our arrival sitting in the garden area which was quiet and peaceful.

The manager was very helpful when we had to get a small repair done to our vehicle and directed us to a garage / workshop in town that could help us. He even phoned ahead to let them know we were coming, which was nice.
