The lodge and conference centre are close to the airport and provide all the basic essentials. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The food was generally OK - although rare steak that is served on the well done side of medium is just not on. The walls and doors of the rooms are paper thin, so any late night revellers... More

When I arrived at the lodge from the King Shaka airport, it must have been around 8 pm. I struggled to find the main entrance and finally was directed to the next street. The bar tender doubled as the receptionist. Dinner was not provided and I was directed to the FKC or the Mc Donalds in the vicinity. The tea... More

I stayed here a few times using both the hotel and the conference facilities. The rooms are very well maintained and kitted out nicely. In addition the food is excellent and the conference facilities area top class. The staff are really friendly and super efficient.

Travelling on my own, I was really pleased to have booked at the K.L on 12/13 May '14. Location: It was very close to a) the airport and b) where I had a business meeting in Phoenix. Accommodation: very clean and neat and a nice touch with crisp white embroidered linen. I was in room 11 which I believe is... More

As my first time in the area, I was unsure what to expect. The venue was ideal for our conference, with flexible and attentive service. The suites were a breath of fresh air, with a deck overlooking the lake/ water hazard at Mt. Edgecombe. Simply excellent.

The lodge met all our business traveller requirements and the conference venue was great with really friendly and helpful staff. In terms of the lodge, it is comfortable with all the basic requirements that a business traveller seeks. There is... More
