Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 22, 2007

Do not stay at the Lion's Head Lodge; there are other, better deals in the same price range. ALL of the rooms have been smoked in, leaving the non-smokers with the distinct smell of smoke on their clothes. The staff are rude and unhelpful - the restaurant service is slow, disorganized and rude. The area is very dangerous - it's not safe to walk to the ATM or convenience store alone and you MUST take a taxi to/from the hotel each time you leave. There aren't any cool cafes/shops nearby - instead it's pawn shops and seedy bars. Unfortunately, it's located at the end of a good area - I would recommend Big Blue, Backpackers, etc before stopping here. The pool and bar all need a lick of paint and they aren't open very long. There is no traveller's lounge or hang-out area to meet other people.
