After all the reviews, I had very high expectations and the Lodge most certainly delivered. The staff and service was pretty much perfect one could not ask for more. The room was very spacious, modern with great furnishings and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the Gorge. The food was far better than expected it’s a small but quality ala carte... More

besides being an extremely beautiful place the one thing that really impressed me where the staff that attend to all your needs, i have never before met such friendly and polite people that make you feel so good that you do not want to leave, this is what sets the Gorge Spa appart from any other Hotel we have visited,...

The best 5 star experience so far! Beautiful setting, overlooking the Oribi Gorge. The accommodation is sumptuous. The highlight for us, was the service! Personal and so gracious. Would recommend it as a romantic gateway or a peaceful retreat. Fine dining experience for every meal was such a treat!

The service was fantastic, and the food delightful. Worth every bit of the five star rating that it owns. Amazing views. Would go back in a heartbeat!! The rooms were immaculate and very comfortable!!

This was our second visit to this amazing lodge! The experience starts with the friendly greeting at the gate. Every possible need of the guests are taking care of and the views are spectacular! Being addressed by your name rather than just your room number makes for an individual experience beyond compare. Attention to detail, 5 star meals, luxury rooms... More

One of the best holidays I can recall. I spent my 32nd birthday at the Gorge Hotel with my mum, Ros Hankinson and it is one we will never forget. The interior spaces of the hotel and suites are spacious with comfortable and understated finishes, fittings and furnishings, that allow the jaw-dropping views to shine. The food was utterly deliciousous.... More

We received 7 star service from the staff at The Gorgeous Gorge. The chef is the best. The food is just too scrumptious and delicious. The views are breath taking and spectacular. I would recommend this place to anyone I know and for people who want to rest and relax. We have made this place our second home In KZN... More

Breath-taking views. Was an absolute pleasure being treated like royalty from the moment we had arrived to the time we departed. Couldn't think of a better way to have celebrated my fiancé birthday and our recent engagement was perfection personified. The attention to detail and the service was impeccable. Really a heaven for those seeking quality time with your family... More

That we had to leave after only 2 nights - we could have easily chillaxed here for 4 nights. Suite was great with views across the gorge, food fantastic, both at the poolside and restaurant. Wine list catered for all tastes. But what makes the hotel are the staff and the personal way they treat all guests. We walked down... More
