As so many other people have commented, this stunning-looking hotel is superbly located, with each room having magnificent views overlooking the battlefield.
The overall standard of the place - staff friendliness and service, space, cleanliness of rooms and areas - was excellent. Good book- and curio shop.
The dinner menu range was rather limited - as other reviewers have commented - but I have no complaints to make of the standard or quality of what I had over several days.
It really is very special and THE place to stay if you are visiting the battlefield and area.

We stayed for two nights in January. We received a warm welcome, despite being two hours late, and were shown to our very nice room after a welcome drink. We had a lovely meal with super wine and admired the fantastic view over the battlefield. The next day we did the excellent battlefields tour before returning to the lodge in the evening for another lovely meal.
The welcome, food, drink and view are second to none. A highlight of our tour of KZN

We stayed one night at Isandlwana Lodge, from Dec 26th through Dec 27th 2019. A truly memorable experience as we were the only guests that night! The staff was welcoming, friendly and service minded, the kitchen was good and both the location of the lodge and the view is truly breathtaking.Our room was spacious and comfortable and all rooms are thematically connected to Zulu commanders and the battle of Isandlwana.

We recently spent two nights at this charming lodge (19-20 September) as part of our African tour. After a long and tiring journey we received a very warm welcome from hosts Ros and Shane.
Our cosy room (number 11 ‘Mbilini’) looked over the site of the Anglo-Zulu battle at Isandlwana, and included twin beds, hot beverage making facilities/ nice biscuity snacks and large balcony.
In terms of meals, we ate breakfast, lunch and dinner here (plus morning/ afternoon snacks) and the choice and quality of the food and drink were all absolutely excellent - as was the service.
Our balcony and the lodge’s terrace/ grounds were wonderful places to see many types of birds. 
The lodge sits at the foot of a cliff from where the Zulu attack at Isandlwana was directed and so was an ideal place for our guided tours of the Isandlwana and the nearby Rorke’s Drift battlefields.
We really enjoyed every second of our stay here and this lodge is fully recommended.

My husband and I have just returned from a 2 night stay at Isandlwana Lodge and loved every minute of our time there.
The journey from Johannesburg was long but on the whole an easy drive. The sight of the Lodge tucked into the cliff-face overlooking Isandhlwana and the battle fields, was spectacular. Our luggage was taken up the hill for us and a welcome drink awaited us while we checked in.
Ros and Shane are very warm hosts and all the staff are lovely, specially our waitress, Patricia.
Our room was spacious and comfortable and having our own private balcony overlooking Isandlwana was wonderful.
After exploring the Lodge which is more intimate than I expected, we were so impressed with its construction right up against the cliff- face. The many photos and paintings of the battle on the walls were fascinating.
After a delicious dinner we enjoyed a good sleep and were up in time for a full day with our Zulu guide, Dalton. He was a mine of information and how he remembered dates and times and names was amazing. After breakfast, he sat us down on the wrap-around balcony overlooking the battle- fields and gave us a wonderful background talk, showing what happened that day at Isandlwana did not happen in isolation but was the culmination of a series of events over many years.
Dalton then took us by landrover to the foot of the "hill" and sat us on camping chairs under the shade of an acacia to point out exactly what happened and when. It was as though the story came alive and we were spell-bound.
After allowing us time to walk around the grave sights marked by white cairns, which we found very moving, we were taken back to the lodge for a light lunch.
At 2pm Dalton fetched us again and drove us to Rorke's Drift where we visited the little museum there and then once again, sat in our chairs under a tree, while Dalton recounted the amazing events of the Battle of Rourke's Drift.
We were back at the hotel by 5:30 and after a well-needed shower, were ready for another lovely meal served to us by the delightful Patricia. We very reluctantly left for Johannesburg the next morning, with our heads filled with amazing historical facts and our stomachs filled with great food!
Thank you everyone concerned for an unforgettable 2 days!
