Stayed for two nights midweek off season so hotel quiet and only pub meals in the bar available. However these were delicious and freshly cooked and we ate in both nights. Excellent bottle of wine added to the enjoyment as well as super friendly staff. Room 1 didn't have a view but it was large with a large bathroom with... More

We arrived rather late and were delighted that although the chef was about to go off duty he remained and cooked us an excellent steak and chips which we had in the bar. There was a good heater in the bedroom and an electric blanket, which kept us warm in the bedroom, a fireplace in the living area but no... More

Kings Lodge is one of the better places to stay in when visiting Hogs Back. It is clean and quaint but also old and in a well established beautiful town which time seems to have forgotten. A real winning point was the service given by the staff, The bar lady Cassie in particular was pleasant, prompt attentive and made us... More

The description of it being a lodge suits this establishment perfectly. We stayed in a cottage which had all the basics that one would need. Furniture and decor is a little outdated and the bath had a stain on it with a handshower that did not work. We only stayed for one night so it was more than comfortable. The... More

Just back from a month in SA. Two weeks of it spent at Kings Lodge. We remember the log fires in the bar each evening, the regular 3x course top quality dinners and the friendly helpful staff. Service with a smile at all times.

The most amazing Sunday lunch. Three courses served buffet style by our friendly cook, and including a roaring fire in the corner. Bargain at R120 with a choice of roast pork or roast beef. Superb meal, nice surroundings.

Yesterday we had a major upset with Kathy's car as we pulled into Hogsback. Once we realised we were stuck for the night, we started making phone calls to find accommodation. Kings Lodge came to our rescue. So we started walking, before we had gone to far, Lance, from Kings lodge picked us up and took us to the hotel... More

I needed to go to nearby Alice for a week for business, so I brought my wife along here for the weekend before for a 'romantic getaway' before moving on to another place in the area for the rest of the week, I unfortunately have to say our stay here was disappointing. When we arrived nobody was present at reception,... More

Nothing too fancy but fits the little cozy town Hogsback, warm self catering rooms with open fire place fits the theme for cold winter nights. Enjoyed our stay and felt well rested and looked after. Thanks
