This was our second visit to Bingelela, and once again, we weren't disappointed. The accommodation has been tastefully renovated, with thoughtful touches. The bedside lamps are the first we've ever encountered which actually allow one to read in bed! Meals are generous and very tasty, with an excellent wine-list. Overall, a great stay.

The food served at the restaurant really is very good. The rooms are comfortable and staff friendly. This is a convenient one night stop that ticks all your basic needs and serves good food. It has a lot of character but doesn't make the most of the views.

The weekend at Bingelela lodge was a wonderful experience. The Owner and everyone working there was very friendly. The chalets were very neat and comfortable. The upgrading of your chalets was a great improvement. Well done! See you soon!

We rested well. We had excellent food. Their restaurant is one of the top 10 restaurants in KZN. Lovely pool for relaxation for you and your children. It is situated at the foot of the Drakensberg so there is a lot to do.

Good just became better. Still the rustic image - a nice modernisation: New bathrooms, new bedding and new interior decoration, but with that same old realisation that you are on a working farm. The thatched roof under the Bluegum trees allows for a fantastic wake up to the peaceful song of birds, ducks and maybe a tractor starting up far... More

This is the second year in a row that we have stayed here before the Arthur Cresswell Marathon. Perfect place to stay - close to the start! Chalets are neat, clean and beds comfy.
