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....

From the moment we arrived at reception we were bowled over. Liezle, the joint-owner, took one look at D (who was unwell) and offered us an upgrade (with bath) at no extra cost. I am a vegetarian and although there was no vegetarian dish on offer that night I chose to eat in, because it was late. Although I had... More

Really great place to stay on overlooking the river. Make sure you ask for a room right on the river bank, one of about 6 which are directly on the river. You will be treated to a lovely view of the river every time you look out your windows. Also each room has a wood burner and wood provided with... More

We had read good reviews about this lodge, but unfortunately we did not have a good experience. We arrived at approx. 4:00 p.m. after travelling from 5:00 in the morning. My husband was ill and just needed to get some food and lie in bed. The restaurant at the lodge was closed so we went into town to get some... More

My siblings and I couldn't have chosen a better getaway to shake off the festivities in preparations for the rest of 2014. Management was pleasant & very helpful. The staff was so "fairy" like in that you never saw them dusting the room up, nor did they continuously knock on the door while we were there as per usual with... More

Lone Creek River Lodge is a great place to stay with family. The lodge is superbly maintained and very child friendly. Our chalet overlooked the pool in the well kept grounds. We will definitely return.

We decided to have christmas lunch at Lone Creek as we have had pleasant experiences there before. All I can say is "wow". Well done to the management and staff of the Lodge. The table settings were beautiful and the food was out of this world.

Our group of 13 stayed the night in the chalets across the road from the main lodge. The rooms have plenty of space including a lounge and a large bathroom. Staff are all very attentive and help with luggage at both check-in and departure. Grounds at the lodge are beautiful and the breakfast was good. Front desk recommended 'The Wild... More
