The lodge has a wonderful view to the mountains, probably one of the best in the country. I could spend hours to enjoy. There is some mystery around the lodge, especially for the famous dead tree. The rooms are spacey, unfortunately nobody bothered to lighten the fireplace, hence the night was quite cold. Dinner and drinks pricey, so I preferred... More

This hotel is absolutely beautiful and the food is delicious but attention to detail is lacking, especially for the prices charged. We booked this hotel as a special treat and were a little disappointed with the service received. It was only small things, for example - * The rooms are freezing and after we used our wood for the fire,... More

Kings Walden is more a boutique hotel than the B & B it lists itself as. Although finding the hotel was a little tricky, the stunning gardens and views over the valley and Drakensberg Mountains more than made up for it. The food is really delicious, service was great and the owners have obviously worked hard at making this small... More

This is a beautiful property with a great restaurant. It's was perfect for our short overnight stay on the way to the Kruger. The staff were attentive and helpful with any request. The rooms were well appointed and had their own fireplaces which was a nice touch. The beds were extremely comfortable and the only criticism was that there is... More

First time I write something about a hotel, this place deserve it!!! I do not know what is better, the atmosphere, the great view, the nice people or the great food. But mixing all this together brings a great place to visit! This is a romantic, beautiful and great place to visit.

You know that you are in for something special when you have to drive down a secluded dirt road to arrive at the venue. Were not guests at the venue but came to view the garden and see the view. It is very special indeed. The garden and indeed the atmosphere speaks of an earlier generation when tehre was more... More

We had only been in South Africa a few hours before learning we had lost a loved member of the family back in the UK. So on this our second night in such a beautiful country we arrived at Kings Walden to experience the peace and tranquility which we so needed. The welcome was kind, the room was so spacious... More
