The staff were amazing, the room was large, clean and recently refurbished. Loved the little lake, a real bird paradise. Two friendly black swans trumpeted us on arrival. Large chandeliers, great decor. Excellent welcome. In room dining superb. The dinners and breakfasts in the restaurant are buffet only, which did not appeal to me, I prefer a la carte. They...

The setting is absolutely beautiful. I was there for a workshop. Arrived early and walked around the lake with beautiful birds including a pair of black swans. During the tea break I saw a jumping castle installed and some kiddies activities set up.

Just an overnight stay but a great experience. Definitely not a hotel feel about it, but that of a lodge. Parking is outside your room. Room is spacious, comfortable and well appointed. The veranda has a view over the lake and lawns and is sited in such a way that you don't see much of the other buildings. It even...

I stayed here for 4 nights on a recent business trip. The location was perfect for travelling to my local partner and customer. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The rooms are all in small blocks of 1 or 2 storey buildings, some facing the lake, some in the wooded areas. My room was in the 100/200 series block...

As the engine room of South Africa, Gauteng is better known more for its generous steel and concrete structures than for its aesthetics. So, Irene Country Lodge came as a wonderful surprise with its fish filled tranquil dams, flocks of birds and stunning maple and oak trees.
