We have been going to lythewood for the past 3 years and its the best place to go to for Christmas. It is hands free and the managers are friendly and at your beck and call. We feel like part of the family. I always enjoy my holiday there and I have booked 2018 Christmas there already. It is value for money and we had a very pleasurable stay

Hi Odel. It is one of our favourite time of the year as we get to welcome so many old friends back over the festive season. It now feels like a big family getting together. We are looking forward to seeing you for Christmas this year.

We made a last minute booking before heading back to JHB as we needed one last break. We had been recommended to stay at Lythwood Lodge so we booked it expecting excellent service, rooms and a pleasant stay - we got the opposite. Our room was not completely clean with rubbish still in the bins, the room smelling like urine, the hot water not turned on, no soap in the bathroom and molded tiles in the shower. We also enthusiasticly booked a "mountain view" room and sadly received a room that was right near reception that looked straight onto the drop off/driveway. It was noisy until late hours of the night with guests and staff having conversations right outside our door. This was not a pleasant stay and I would not recommend it to anyone seeking cleanliness or tranquillity.

Hi Robsdw. Due to the heavy rain we were experiencing on the day of your arrival, a last minute decision was made to move you from the Verandah rooms into the main lodge. Unfortunately the housekeeping department slipped from our normal exceptional standards. Mary, our head housekeeper, and the rest of our housekeeping team feel as if they have let the rest of the team and Lythwood's impeccable reputation down.

Once again, I would like to apologise for your unacceptable experience at Lythwood, but would like to thank you for bringing this to our attention. I would like to assure you that Mary and her team has rectified the issues you raised and are looking forward to building on their sound reputation.

Very good service and friendly staff! Romantic setting suitable for weddings. The rooms are well kept and room service with small attention to detail makes it even more welcoming. Stunning views and the food mouthwatering.

We attended a wedding there and the place is absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately the weather was not on our side but the coordinators still managed to make it an unbelievable experience. The lodge is very cosy with ample room for all the guests. The rooms are spacious and you every need is catered for. The self catering units all have beautiful views. The staff were very friendly and extremely willing to help.

Beautiful lodge, it was peaceful as we wanted. Although not all of the lodges have fireplaces as advertised, it was still very warm during the cold nights. The staff are very polite and friendly, they always kept us informed. The food is excellent.

Room Tip: Enquire specifically which rooms have a fire place if thats what you looking for.
