Staying at Highlands Loges was a dismal experience. The photos shown online do not reflect the actually dilapidated state of the property, nor do they prepare you to find a sub-backpacker standard.
The room is cramped and rather provides a fridge that stands in front of the only mirror than amenities or coffee station. Doors, Floors, Toilet and windows have been "renovated" in a rush and you cannot find a single plug in the walls. For our 4 day stay we were supposed to last with one small towel and one roll of 1-ply recycled toilet paper. The shower and bath only had cold water except for the last day and the toilet seat was visibly broken, but never fixed.
No amenities whatsoever and although told there is a 24 hour reception by dialing '20', there was never an answer.
The manager was never present at the premises. The remote for the gate had a flat battery and was tied to the key with a wire that cut into pockets and clothing. The internet is intermittent and so slow that one can hardly visit any website. The TV was broken and not fixed.
The epitome of dissatisfaction can be found in the 'breakfast', which consist of instant coffee, milk powder, jam and margarine, toast, 1 egg and beans. No cereals, no milk, no fruit, yoghurt or anything. A rasher of bacon and a sausage cost USD 5 extra!!!! There is no service, all is placed outside on a window sill (!!).
We can only warn any traveller that this a complete rip-off and the establishment should be closed down!
