Negative Reviews

Hotel on a hill

Tusker Lodge is located on top of a hill which, in places, can be a little steep People with mobility issues may have trouble walking to and from the property.

Shower facilities in need of maintenance

Throughout the hotel the guest showers could use a little updating This is especially true for the shared facilities Complaints include shower heads not at full power and being a little cramped, although most people don’t find that the facilities ruin their stay.

A thorough cleaning could freshen up the place

The lodge has seen a lot of history, and upkeep of the property has not always been ideal Some guests report signs of water and smoke damage in guestrooms, which could be remedied by a little extra work by the cleaning staff.
