Previously (2014) I wrote that Sudwala Lodge is improving. Four years later I can honestly say that they have managed to improve some more and is still improving.

My overall impression is that everything is just getting that little bit of extra attention with one or two items that have been improved a lot. I would like to mention security with the new electric fence all round to keep vagrants out, and the restaurant that is now serving small dishes during the day in between meals. Also, the rooms have been refurbished and housekeeping is so much better.

Just remember this is a 3 star establishment with strong emphasis on self-catering family accommodation and you will enjoy your stay. Day-trips to Sabie, Graskop, Kruger or the botanical gardens are within reach and you can always have dinner at one of the local restaurants on your way home if you don't feel like cooking.

Room tip: If you want a really quiet place, book a room in the 600 series away from reception.

I needed a good break away from the chaos of the city life and its exactly what I got. Hike was great, very easy to follow. The room was exactly what I needed as a single person and was always clean. Staff are excellent and very friendly and helpful.

This resort offers peace and tranquility in a very clean and well maintained environment. The view of the mountain on the one side and the view of the river and bushes to the other side is really good. Excellent staff who responds immediately to your needs with a smile and professionalism. The layout of the chalets ensures that you are never overcrowded and keeps each unit private but at the same time it is easy to chat to neighbours. Definitely a good choice.

Very quite , the service was good at the reception and when visiting the restaurant. The rooms is far from everything you have to walk it is better than driving. The privacy is also not that good, we had a gardener infront of our room the room the whole time.
