Friendly owner who really interested in you as a guest. He asks where your interest lie, and gives you usefull information about the enviroment. His staf is very friendly and helpfull. The food is jammie and a lot of different choices, also at breakfast. The gardens are peacefull and well maintained. This is a choice of a lifetime!

We ha've stayed in this hotel in November. We had a nice stay with good food from the restaurant. Although it was a bit weird that we were the only guests that night. The diner and the breakfast were both good.

I very seldom write a review of a guest house or a bed & Breakfast. If I do, it really impressed me. I travel on a regular basis and stayed in many Guest houses, hotels and bed and breakfasts over the years. With this trip my mother was travelling with me. When she is with me I always try and...

Enchanting place, combining an isolated location with modern elegant and big rooms and evocative old and nicely decadent gardens. Food and service is very good, for dinner and breakfast. Strongly recommended

First of all I would like to underline that Kings Walden is a beautiful place and they serve very good food. You can compare the kitchen with rather European standards. The area and the rooms of the Manor are really great. Very nice interior design, great luxury. So far the good sight of the visit. I stayed for 3 nights... More

We enjoyed a wonderful 3 day stay at King's Walden. Hospitality was great. I was grateful for no TV in the room this left us more time to lounge by the pool, walk the magnificent gardens, and enjoy the fireplace in the room. Free internet worked very well. Breakfasts were culinary delights (complete with the edible flowers). 4 course dinner... More

One of my favourite lodges in South Africa. Absolutely breathtaking views, top location. Lovely gardens too. Food is excellent and staff helpful and friendly. Rooms are fine, quite large and fully functional, with fire places. Wifi and mobile phones work best towards the front and not well towards the back. No TVs (maybe a good thing when there is so...
