Matlapa Lodge Magaliesburg / robbed at gunpoint by 2 armed men while on holiday at this lodge
My husband and I were robbed by 2 men at gunpoint on the 11th january 2019 at this lodge. We lost a total of r19000 worth of belongings. The police who arrived on the scene said they are regularly at this lodge with guests who have been robbed by armed men. When contacting the owner to request compensation for our losses, we were advised that he is not responsible for the safety of his guests we all stay there at our own risk.
This lodge is unsafe and any future guest risk their lives booking at this place.
Not to mention, the lodge is definitely not as smart as it seems on the photo's. The chalet furniture is old and worn, the garden is unkept, the swimming pool was dirty and the excuse for a breakfast is definitely not worth the r55 per person we were charged. The owner is extremely rude and abrupt.
