After being informed that a confirmed booking for the period 03 to 06 April 2015 has been cancelled by the owner of the Wayfarers Guest House due to "over booking", a last minute booking was made at the Lone Creek River Lodge for the same period, at a much higher price than actually budgeted for.[We were actually on our way...

Have been very pleasantly surprised by the awesome Lone Creek Lodge. I travel full time for work and have stayed in hundreds of places including lavish hotels. The real charm with this spot is it is so homely. The rooms (suites) are so peaceful in their setting you feel so rested, and they are huge. There are also 3 awesome... More

What a lovely stay. We were treated with only the best service. Deidre went out of her way to accommodate us all the way. Aron, the butler, as we saw him, could not wait to be of service. We stayed in the log cabins, which was well equiped, the only problem, was that at times we could hear traffic, but... More

Where to start we arrived in the afternoon at the lodge we were greeted by the General Manager who was a friendly and welcoming lady with three adorable dogs. We were then shown to our accommodation which was the River View, Suite 8. After settling in and admiring the breathe taking view which was just outside our door and exploring... More

The lodge straddles a busy and occasionally noisy road down the road from a Sawmill. We stayed in the log cabins across from the main lodge buildings. A lot of thought and expense has clearly gone into the construction of these units and their location and layout is great. All units overlook a large grassed garden that is well tended... More

We stayed in one of the self catering timber lodges and found the lodge very spacious and well equipped. There is a fan and lovely swimming pool for hot days and a fan heater and fireplace for cold ones. There is also a hiking route on the other side of the Sabie river and you can hire a mountain bike... More

We spent our first night in South Africa here, chose Sabie as starting point for the panorama route. Therefore we had no experience so far with hotels /B&Bs in South Africa. We have been welcomed by the owner and given a room down at the river. These rooms are like small apartments, including living room and a fireplace. The rooms... More

We selected Lone Creek River Lodge as our final stop over on our return leg from the Kruger National Park. We where not disappointed, but also didn't leave overly impressed. We received a very friendly and efficient welcome on arrival and were directed to the log cabins. The self-catering unit was very spacious and will accommodate four people quite comfortably....
