“Lovely experience in a stunning part of SA”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

My wife and I had the privilege of staying in Leaves Lodge for 5 nights. I could not fault this establishment in any way, we were extremely comfortable, the staff were professional, nothing was too much for them to truly make it as pleasant as possible for us. We enjoyed the luxury breakfasts served every morning with freshness, and had dinners for 2 of the 5 evenings. The food served was complementing to the whole lodge and it's high standards. The indigenous rocky bush garden with the pool facilities was also perfectly fitting with the adjacent nature reserve, and being a horticulturalist myself, I was fascinated with the garden layout and design, I can only complement Thys (the owner) on his efforts at gardening, it is absolutely magnificent. We were able to explore the Lowveld region comfortably from Leaves due to the nature of location. The spa treatments were extremely relaxing and refreshing, and just finished off a very enjoyable stay for us.

Well done Leaves, you've done well, I can comfortably recommend you to anybody seeking a luxury break

I have been staying at Leaves Lodge and Spa for almost 1.5 years and still do for business. The hospitality of the staff ,service and facilities are excellent. I'm still staying great. I would recommend anyone or business to make use of Leaves Lodge & Spa at anytime. Thanks to Thys de Lange and his great staff for their excellent services and flexibility. Keep up the excellent service.

My Wife and myself have been staying at Leaves Lodge for a couple of days and we enjoyed
it thoroughly there . The food and service was excellent and we can only recommend it . The view from the balcony where we normally had breakfast is excellent and one evening we had a braai at the little spruit .

We found our stay at Leaves Lodge to be as close to perfect as possible. The hospitality of the staff was amazing as well as the breathtaking views. Even though you are in town you feel like you are far away in the mountains, with the breathtaking views. The rooms are excellent. We found the food to be great.

Overall an awesome stay for a get away.

We had the benefit of holding a breakaway session at Leaves Lodge and the facilities, service and support was excellent. We had 20 delegates and the owner Thys de Lange and his team provided excellent service. Nothing was to much and the flexibility with which the worked around our programme made the three day session, not only memorable but the objectives were also achieved. We were also assisted with planning outings for the delegates as part of the team building processes. The facilities are of a high quality and standard and the delegates made the most of their stay. The spa, swimming pool and entertainment areas provided a perfect atmosphere within which to talk and deal with issues that needed attention. A definite venue for the future. Laurie

Room Tip: If available, ask for the rooms with a view over the gardens and the town.

My husband and I had the privilege to stay at Leaves Lodge & spa on a nice romantic weekend break away. Everything was more than perfect! Staff were friendly and efficient, the place was beautiful and just perfect. We would love to go back and would highly recommend anyone else to make a booking here too.

10/10 for staff, Lucy 100/10 well done. Our stay will be remembered for all the good reasons. Spacious rooms and the boutique hotel are situated on a prime spot, a real gem in the lowveld.
This was our 3d visit and definitely not our last. Well done guys hope to see you soon.

Room Tip: rooms on upper level - great view
