The location is perfect for traveling along the Panorama Route, also very short to Numbi Gate (Kruger). We could get an upgrade from the old train to the Bungalow without a problem. The train is way to cold in the winter and the washing facilities are old and dirty. The Bungalows need to be renovated too but they look very... More

We apologize if the room was not up to your expectations. We are as in the midget of making some exciting new changes to our premises but this is Africa and renovations do take time here. More

Overall I can't understand how this place has a 3 star rating. The rooms were stuffy, the mattresses were old and smelly and in general the unit felt dirty. To top it off, we had booked and paid for 4 nights and had to return home the first day due to a work related emergency, and the owners refuse to... More

It is unfortunate that your work interfered with your travel plans but that is no excuse for writing an unfounded review. I can assure you that we have had many guests who thoroughly enjoyed their stay with us. We pride ourselves on a high standard of cleanliness and friendly service. A quick look at our guest book will prove this. More

This place is run by a friendly lady who is very helpful and full of good advice on the local area. But the property itself is old and out of date. The room we had was very old and worn out - "rustic" would be too kind. The big issue for myself and my travel companions though was that the... More

We stayed two nights in one of the rondavels and had a great time. The property was quiet with pretty gardens located in a great area with lots to see and do. The rondavels were cute and comfortable and the staff was very friendly. The free breakfast was great and I loved the friendly little dog that lives there. The... More

I stayed at Summit Lodge back in 2010 when things were run down and it just wasn't a nice place to be. I came back with some friends this year (we've just left) and what a difference the new owners have made! An overhaul of the restaurant menu means we're now faced with all sorts of nice delights from fish,... More

We stayed in a rondavel at Summit Lodge for two nights. The room was fine, everything we needed and at a good price. It is a brilliant location for the Drakensberg panoramic routes, and all the best places are within very easy reach. The grounds at Summit Lodge are well maintained, there are some wonderful plants, attracting butterflies and birds.... More
