A nice place with very welcoming people and great hospitality. It somehow felt like home. Pearl, the receptionist is so loving and caring. She is like a mother. I had a great time. I just didn't rate the place a 5 only because it doesn't have white linen and sheets.

Mediocre accommodation. Place is in definite need of a refurbishment as it looks outdated. None of the rooms have showers. Restuarant does not cater for supper unless prearranged even though they present a full menu. Staff are very helpful though and there is a nice bar with an indoor and outdoor entertainment area.

As u drive there it seems like there's no life ahead then suddenly boom it hits u. A slice of heaven in the middle of no where. Nice place with the necessary levels of tranquillity for proper rest if u want an undisturbed vacation or hid-away. All the way from Zambia l spent 4 days of Oct 2018 there with my SA friends.

A home away from home. Staying in the Snowflake chalet we were greeted with friendly staff, a cozy home for our stay and monkeys in the trees. Will definitely be returning!

We spent 3 nights at the hotel at the end of July 2018, to take part in Hogsback`s Winter Celebration. Our room was clean, the bed comfortable; even including electrical blankets - utter bliss after coming in from the cold! After one such night, and expecting to come back fairly late, we even found the fire place in the lounge readily stacked. In no time at all, the cold room was transformed into a cozy and comforting place, and we stayed up longer than intended....We found the staff friendly and attentive, and especially enjoyed our "Christmas" dinner that Saturday night in a beautifully decorated dining room!Thanks again, to all the staff on duty that weekend!

I recently stayed at King's Lodge for 3 nights with a group of delegates from our institution. The hotel and cottages are lovely and comfortable. The food was delicious and more than any of us could ever finish - there was even special provision made for a vegetarian colleague. The staff are very friendly, courteous and extremely helpful. Management was always available to assist and support no matter how great or small our needs were and were very accommodating. The views are absolutely amazing and the environment is a real treat to work in. Thank you to Steve, Denise and your incredible team for the great service and friendly atmosphere. We hope to return soon.

A lovely old world hotel. Only have baths in the rooms hence the mediocre score. The rooms are also a little dated but it fits so well into the Hogsback vibe. Manager and staff are very accommodating and friendly. But the beds and bathrooms could benefit from an upgrade.

review by Alex Jenkins


The cottage was comfortable, equipped with everything we needed and set in a beautiful garden. It was nice to be able to take our pets along.

review by Martinus Claasen, South Africa


We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Monique and staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Food excellent, all prices reasonable and would certainly stay again.
