I loved everything about our stay at Inkungu Lodge, from the beautiful rooms and breath-taking views to the delicious meals and attentive and friendly staff. A warm fire and an excellent red wine completed the cosy atmosphere ... keep it up guys.

The hospitality of Maryla is excellent. The accommodation rate however is totally overpriced. There is not even covered parking for your vehicle. The menu options are slightly limited but the overall service of the catering staff is excellent.

From the time we drove through the gate to the time we left, we have nothing but good things to say about the restaurant (we did not stay overnight - but did get a tour of the rooms and wish that we were). Friends promised us a quality dinning experience and we were not disappointed. Drinks on the veranda, with... More

We decided to break our journey from Natal to Guateng and opted for Ikungu Lodge. It is well situated in the Drakensberg with lots to do in the area. We were treated to the Presidential Suite that included a balcony where we could sit and enjoy a glass of wine whilst admiring the scenery. The lodge is a great place... More

Our family recently booked a weekend to Inkungu Lodge, but due to an unforeseen family crisis, we were unable to take up our booking. Having paid our deposit weeks earlier, we were concerned that we would forfeit our entire deposit, having cancelled 5 days prior to arrival. Instead of taking advantage of our circumstance, the management kindly agreed to a... More

We stayed at Inkungu over the long weekend in June. Although management was warm welcoming and accomodating, and the staff inexperienced were eager to please, the stay was below average. For the price you pay, akin to a proper five star establishment, attention to detail, cleanliness and overall mbience was below par. For instance there is no turn down facility... More

This is a beautiful place with a wonderful view and excellent position, but very inexperienced management, the young lady who took our bookings and who was at reception at our arrival did not do justice to this place, long before we arrived we where already frustrated (as we could not find the place,) and wondering if we should book in,...

Plenty to do if you want to go out and about or just chill by the pool and admire the views. Walk the great food portions off through thr local hills!!. Close to the... More

Stunning place with fantastic views of the Drakensberg. Felt very welcomed by both staff and owners, who took us to a private Biltong making masterclass! Food is absolutely delicious. Thanks so much for an unforgettable experience! Gijs and Suzanne
