Hogsback is one of my favourite spots to go and there is nothing more I hate than having to give something a bad review, but the "Christmas" lunch experience we had at Kings Lodge was nothing more than morbid. I booked well in advance for a buffet lunch which cost R190 per person. We arrived on Xmas day, expecting some... More

We flew solo this holiday - but found the perfect spot to compensate leaving our family & friends behind. Central location in the middle of the Hogsback Village. Staff was very accommodating towards us and our toddler, it was like we never left home. We were provided with helpful information about activities and what to do in Hogsback. We enjoyed... More

We stayed in a self catering cottage for three nights. TV available. Very helpful staff. The food was good and the prices reasonable. We loved every moment every request was seen to immediately. Warm and cozy. Fire place with wood available. The lodge is on the main road so you do not have to go on any gravel roads (which... More

It was a last minute decision that I will never regret. The lodge was perfectly situated, it had everything I needed and it was a peaceful retreat after a long day @ the conference I was attending in Hogsback.

We have truly enjoyed our stay at Kings Lodge two weeks ago. The accommodation was absolutely FABULOUS. I loved the beautiful surroundings and spectacular gardens. Evertything was clean, tidy and neat. The self catering unit was fully equipped - even tea, coffee and sugar were provided. I loved the soap dispensers in the bathrooms - filled to capacity with the... More

Loooved it, the stuff, the food, scenery was amazing plus Hogsback is such a gorgeous place. The manager was very sweet and accommodating. I am definitely coming back, with friends and family 💜. I would definitely recommend this place... plus the rate is so reasonable for the services offered.

We had a wonderful stay at Kings Lodge. The rooms were cosy (we have stayed in two different rooms, both were comfortable), the meals were delicious (one of the managers is also a chef) and the rates were very affordable. We'll certainly return. Thank you!

I have just spent a weekend in this hotel. Kings Lodge is in a beautiful setting with big gardens, including swings and a jungle jim for kiddies, plus a swimming pool for summer. All this backs onto a forest. Cows roam and graze freely in the garden behind the hotel. The main hotel has on suite rooms and there are... More

What an amazing stay to say the least! We have been to Hogsback many times before, this was our first stay at King’s Lodge. We found this Country Hotel with home cooked food, spotless rooms and friendly & attentive staff extremely welcoming. This hotel might not be luxurious or modern, at the same time we could not help but feel... More
