Bad management Beautiful place to stay. The place to go and have a nice relaxing time. BUT the management not that great. There is no details about the area or the lodge. We asked for a brochure but the lodge doesn’t have any. Room service is poor. Don’t bet on it that you’ll get nice fresh towels or linens, maybe...

What a great place! Nicely and remotely tucked away up in the mountains is a little piece of tranquil heaven. Coming from Joburg we needed a peaceful break and this is something Qunu lodge does very well indeed. Great views, comfy rooms and loads of activities and farm animals for our 2 year old to interact with made it a...

The venue was extremely nice and clean. The Qunu falls were amazing and the horse ride or walk to get there was a memorable experience. The weather was not in our favour as it rained for most of our short stay at this venue. The outdoors is comparable to some of the more expensive venues we have stayed at in...

The accommodation (H04) was clean and comfortable - better chairs in the lounge would have been a bonus. It was well equipped for self catering - be sure to take everything as the mini-shop has little to offer and the food at the café was over-priced and very average. The facilities on offer (pool / putt putt / swimming pool...

We went for a well deserved break away and ended up at Qunu lodge. We stayed in chalet H3. We had a great view over the valley. In the evenings the mist would roll into the chalet.
