Reviews for Blyde River Canyon Lodge
Very nice, quiet, clean and the views exceeded expectations.
We really enjoyed this place. We where greated by impalas and zebras. The dinner on the deck was incredible, we could watch some game and the food was delicious.
Really nice hotel with breakfast and dinner Chosen as well because near by blade river canyon
Returned. Really nice stopover place in a really nice area to explore on your way through to or from the parks.
Terrible, avoid this place,4 star prices,1 star service, no cell phone signal,a Wi-Fi that doesn't work, even though they work on it everyday, nice decor but that's unfortunately where it ends, just trying to enter and exit is an unfortunate experience,
Absolutely beautiful.Was walking around the property and just bumped into 2 zebras, some impala.The property is well kept, houses are nice and overall was agreed was a great stay.
Nice Place to hang out.Great rooms.Very friendly staff.Only two deckchairs at the pool for several rooms.
Lovely place to relax and unwind. The staff are humble and friendly and always willing to help. Portia is amazing. Providing all the information and she goes above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable. Elize
Our stay was horrible!! Unbelievable! The manager, her name is Portia, was EXTREMELY unwelcoming and LIED saying that we cleaned out the mini bar and sent a R650 bill for us! When in fact, she cleared the mini bar just to spite us for not staying there after the unpleasant treatment towards us. Never again. If you're a black person, don't even bother booking yourself in here. I hope Portia gets reprimanded for her lies.
Friendly staff... Great food.... Amazingly beautiful surroundings
Nice place, friendly staff, adequate but very small rooms, only a little bigger than the bed. Food ok, no surprises here. Major power failure while we were there. Staff managed to deal with it rather well.
We spent 3 nights at Blyde River Canyon Lodge, staff were exceptional, always there for our every need. Delicious meals, both breakfast and dinner. The lodge couldn't have a more tranquil setting, gorgeous mountains at the back, river in the front and lovely big lawns, zebra, impala and more stroll leisurely around...also, they were very helpful with advise on places to visit in the vicinity. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
