“A dinner for Kings”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Salome and Dirk hosted a function for us at their Guest House and we can only recognise what an absolutely fantastic night it was. The food was delicious - we had tender fillet which was cooked to perfection and the ambience of the venue was gorgeous.

I would highly recommend anyone planning a function at Lennox

We spent three nights at Lennox Guest House and could easily have stayed longer. Salome and Dirk are great hosts and Salome's cooking is delicious. The working farm is a lovely quiet environment and a good jumping off point from which to visit the battlefields. The farm is interesting in itself, with a whole variety of animals and they have a great pool if you want to cool off. Dirk is full of information which he is more than willing to share. Can't recommend this place too highly.

We spent 3 nights with Salome and Dirk, they were wonderful hosts and we we made to feel very welcome. The accomodation was excellent . I cant rave on enough about the food it was the very best we had throughout our 3 weeks in South Africa the quality was as good as you would find in a Michelin star restaurant. Salome loves to cook and her guests are the lucky ones who benefit.
Dirk gave us a tour of the farm and we were able to see his 2 day old giraffe.He also arranged a guide for our tour of the battlefields
A great couple and a great B&B

Recently,we had the enormous pleasure of staying with Salome and Dirk for 2 nights. Their welcome was warm and genuine. Salome is an excellent cook and therefore the 2 evening meals we had were exceptional....the best fillet steak we have tasted in a long time. We enjoyed seeing the Rugby memorabilia and on our last morning Dirk very kindly gave us a real treat and took us to see a baby giraffe only 4 days old. We did not have time to use the large pool, but enjoyed relaxing on the garden terrace. Our room was very tastefully decorated and we found their staff most pleasant and friendly. The location is an ideal base for the Battlefields and although we did not take up the offer, Dirk said that he could arrange a guide. Happy memories!

Room Tip: From what we saw all the rooms are very good and of comparable quality....so there is no need to ask...

We stumbled across Lennox Guest House whilst 'slackpacking' around KZN and what a find it was. Great accommodation, including hotti bottis to keep us cosy at night, superb food, inc whiskey and cream with the porridge. Fab company, fab location and great stories

We stayed with Dirk as host and he is a really nice and interesting guy being a former rugby springbok international. The food was a real highlight and Dirk's wife produces very high quality dishes. Try the porridge with whisky - splendid. If you are visiting the battlefields ask Dirk to put you in touch with Paul Gardner who is a fantastic guide and I recommend using himfor two days. We would stay again if in the same area.
