We enyoyed our stay at Vingerklip Lodge. Room was ok, maybe a little bit small. To have dinner at Eagle's Nest Restaurant is reallly unique, as well as the location of the lodge, facilities and views.

The waiters were unable to tell me whether today's Game Steak was Oryx (Gemsbok) or Springbok, and when it came it looked like a piece of round, thinly-sliced gammon 10cm in diameter. My partner had the spaghetti bolognaise but the waiter was unable to say beforehand how much tomato the dish contains.

Great landscape and view from the terrace, lots of animals at the waterhole. Very friendly staff. Impressive walkway to the eagle's nest. Unbelievable sunsets. Very good buffet for breakfast and dinner. Free afternoon coffee and cake.

A great place to stay for 1-2 days. The room was good, but there is still room for improvement as for cleanliness. Quality of diner buffet and breakfast average. Toaster was only available on request. Service very good. Nice and friendly staff.

After many years, we stayed at this Lodge again. The spectacular "Heavens Gate" Bungalow on top of the Rock was reason enough to come back in 2017. But also the rest of the Lodge is very nice. Friendly staff and good food - we really enjoyed the days.

Very much liked the 2 days there. Place is great for hiking surrounded by a fabulous landscape. Food was very good, people really friendly. As there is no air-con the temperature in the room was a bit hot and kids didn't sleep very well in the upper part of the family unit. The pool was also very enjoyable. View from...

Off road and worth every bump we've made. Service, staff, facilities and food at 6****** class !! It is not easy to keep a lodge on top of the hill and higher in such a condition that guests cannot complain. I wish to be able to book at booking.com , but is not listed and otherwise internet not the most...

After reading reviews of this hotel we were really looking forward to our visit. The situation is stunning, the rooms are spread throughout the groundsand are attractive with terraces, outdoor furniture and great views. Unfortunately the hotel appears to be poorly run. We had no hot water in the room. We reported the problem and were told that it had...

Even with the good tripadvisor grade, the place was still above our expectations. The place itself is beautiful. The huts are perfect, the pool and the restaurant is good, the view is spectacular. We had dinner at the eagles-nest, and yes the view from here is breath-taking, however I think the food might even be better at the main restaurant....
