The suite has two en-suite bedrooms a fully equipped kitchen and a lounge. The main bedroom has a king bed and the second bedroom had two single beds. From the... More

Not too hectic but close to all the modern amenities in a half-rural setting. Just a welcome relief before engaging the odd 300 km to Johannesburg. Service acceptable but nothing to write home about...people friendly like all rural settings in a relaxed environment.

I traveled to the lodge for a conference and stayed in the self-catering chalet which was great. While I wouldn't describe the place as trendy, it had a homely and relaxing feel to it. I liked the personal touch of the welcoming letter addressed to me specifically. The room was large and spacious and overlooked the golf course. The chalet... More

Most of them are familiar faces from previously which is great. Loved the lush gardens which are well maintained. The food in their restaurant was delicious... More

We ha've stayed in this hotel in November and we really didn't like our room at all. The room was very outdated and it was a bit smelly. Altough we've had a nice diner at the restaurant. The lionswalk was really amazing. You should go to this place for the lionswalk without expectations for the room.

The Ranch Hotel is a good place to stop over en route to and from the northern part of Kruger National Park. We have had 3 separate nights there recently and have enjoyed the rooms, the food at dinner and breakfast and the friendly service.
