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

Outstanding service offered by management and staff. Met all of our expectations for a 5 star lodge. Waking up to a view like that was truly mind blowing. We can't thank the gorge enough for making it a special unforgettable stay. Two thumbs up

My wife and I spend time at The Gorge Lodge and Spa every year for our wedding anniversary and we had another great stay. Nothing is too much of an ask for the staff and the food and atmosphere are spellbinding. We enjoyed the surrounds of the new building, watching the stars over a candle-lit dinner (Eskom really tries to... More

My wife and I were treated to a fantastic stay at The Gorge. The staff were friendly and very helpful with a keen sense of customer service. The food was tasty while it was refreshing that our specific food requests were catered for. The room was beatiful with stunning views overlooking the oribi gorge. The service at the spa and...

A real romantic weekend with great food and wine. Amazing location with amazing people. Also enjoy the spa! The original rooms are half glass and the view is just breathtaking, even when you sitting in your bath or taking a shower on the edge of a cliff, outside! These are some of the best views Africa has to offer. We... More
