    Luxurious accomodation within walking distance of the river”
    Quiet location almost on the Blyde River within the Blyde River Botanical reserve.Short walk through the reserve to the banks of the river itself. Delightful accommodation in a traditional, old-worldly thatched building, with an open dining area overlooking a patio and the pool. Good food and friendly service, maybe a little slow, but not a place for rushing around. Our room was spacious but up a steep flight of stairs. Needed the help of a strong local woman member of staff to get the cases up. The reserve is the opposite side of the river to all the gorge viewing spots, so it was a reasonable drive to get to the start of the viewing drive.

    Really good stay”
    The food and accommodation were really first class and staff were friendly and helpful. There were some reports that this place was convenient for Bourke's Luck - be advised it is NOT near those places. it is at least a 100km round trip. However it IS near a really lovely nature reserve at the Blydepoort Dam and it is a really great stop over if you are heading to or from Kruger and you don't want to drive too far. I would recommend it to anyone.

    Beautiful surroundings”
    Staff, hotel grounds, wildlife
    We enjoy breakfast with the zebras at this hotel. The room was comfortable and clean. The Staff was helpful and friendly. This hotel had somewhat good proximity to the sights if you have a car. The only negative was the food (which was good) and laundry was over priced. There are not many dining options in the area and it seems like they are taking advantage of this.

    Nice place , good athmosfere ”
    Surrounded by nature , truly african style lodge , zebras comming verry close at morning times
    We stayed for 1 night only . The place is beautiful, surrounded by nature , you spot some wild animals during your stay . It is close to Blyde River Canyon , but not to the panoramic route, it might take an hour to get there. The rooms are ok , but for the price paid I think that the bathroom need refreshment. As well we found a few ants in the bed. So probably the cleaning needs to be improved as well . It is a good place to stay , just for the price we paid I had expected more.

    Beautiful location”
    Nature, zebras and quiet
    Rooms were not as nice as expected and seemingly run down a bit. Perhaps there was confusion with the OTHER lodge they run, about 20KM away, which is far nicer. However, the wandering animals made it a very memorable experience, being able to walk with my little daughter in my arms almost right up to wild zebra was very nice. Great place to relax.

    i love the setting of this hotel but i have to say the staff is a bit slow. When I asked her what was the dessert of the day, she had no idea what i was talking about. She jumped around and giggled the whole time , i dont think she takes her job seriously.

    We had a wonderful time at the lodge, sitting by the pool, going for a short walk, enjoying the amazing sunset, and eating a fabulous dinner. I wish they had a small refridgerator in the room.

    Lovely pool and cosy areas to relax in, good food!
    We had a bit of trouble finding Blyde River Canyon Lodge - it is at the north end of the canyon - so were late arriving but they had kept the kitchen open for us and we had a really nice meal, good food and good value. The room was lovely and we slept to the sound of baboons outside in the beautiful gardens! Again breakfast was great with a cooked breakfast as well as cereals/fruit etc and great coffee! One tip don't par under the tree - the baboons had messed all over our carin the morning and it stank!

    Die Canyon Lodge ist direkt in der Nähe zu einem Naturschutzgebiet, in dem man kleinere Hikes und andere Aktivitäten unternehmen kann. Das Essen war gut und die Mitarbeiter ausgesprochen freundlich. Das Zimmer war okay, aber etwas klein. Das Gelände ist auch sehr schön und bei unserer Ankunft wurden wir von einigen Zebras begrüsst.
