Stayed there for a weekend with my husband and daughter in August. We had a lovely time. The room was spacious, I think it was one of the superior rooms. Enormous bed, crisp linen, underfloor heating in the bathrooms, gowns and slippers etc. lovely spread at breakfast, very very friendly staff. Beautiful grounds, my daughter enjoyed watching the ducks, running around in the open areas. Love this hotel!

Plus the fact that it is a mere 1/2 hours drive from OR Tambo International Airport. Beautifully appointed suites, stunning facilities, peaceful country views with lake, birds for Africa and tranquil oaks and river bush willows. Food is stunning with breakfasts a real winner. Did I also mention Camdeboo Day Spa too - sheer indulgence and stress reliever.
Thank you Irene Country Lodge for being in Irene

Room Tip: Downstairs if you wish to amble out onto the lawns.

Old fashioned large comfortable rooms, not standard box. Staff extremely friendly, some a bit green but willing ++.

Food good, lovely setting. Free wifi (reasonable amount).

Good shuttles. Small gym but access to bigger one nearby - free. Bit far from sandton etc. but transport easy to organise.

This was our first time at this country lodge. It was an absolute treat. Nestled between a golf course and a dairy farm, Everything is done at top-quality levels. Rooms are very spacious (one of our beds wasn't great and the shower is really pokey) and quite luxurious, staff are friendly and helpful. The grounds are the best part. Food is good for hotel fare. Lots to see nearby: Melrose House, the dairy farm, Paul Kruger house, and even the nearby trading post. Great get-away 30 min from Joburg. Not cheap, but still good value. Will definitely be back.

My family and I spent a few days at this hotel. Although it is just a stones throw from Johannesburg it felt like a county side visit, with the access to the Irene Farm.
Service was great, although the underfloor heating and aircon did not work well. Also the hot water available in the shower was limited. Overall we enjoyed it....

I visited the spa for a mani-pedi. The establishment is beautifully tranquil and peaceful. I felt very relaxed. The staff are friendly, although my beauty therapist could've taken more care on the mani-pedi. A bit dissapointing.

This lodge is in a beautiful location and the rooms really are very pretty at first glance. Unfortunately there are too many small wrong for this place to be rated as any more than average. First of all, the aircon did not work in a few of our rooms (we were there in a group). Second, there was one room which did not have hot water. Then, the hair dryer in my room had an adaptor which did not fit into any of the plugs in the room! When I phoned housekeeping, they did bring a new plug but collected it again so the next morning I had the same issue! What on earth?! Who puts appliances in the room that guests cannot use?! So overall a little dissapointed...
