Lions River Country Cottages are set in a beautiful location in the stunning Midlands, and ideally located to explore the surrounding Midlands Meander. We staying in the very spacious 3 bedroomed Rose cottage. Each bedroom has its own full on-suite bathroom. There are also ceiling fans in every room, keeping the cottage comfortably cool on a very hot Midlands day. The cottage was very clean and well equipped. We also appreciated that the owners were flexible, we checked in late and was allowed to check out later as well.

We loved returning to Lions River Country Cottages as it is quiet, relaxing, homely and well located. We travelled with our baby and they were able to supply a camp cot which was most useful. We look forward to returning again.

What a nice surprise to find a quiet retreat at an affordable rate. We experienced "load shedding" but a gas stove and invertor for lights and wall plugs, ensured minimum discomfort. We will make use of Lions River Country Cottages again in future.

We wanted a quick and easy getaway and we found this here. Only an hour from Durban, Lion’s River has hidden gems in every corner. The lush green vegetation, the all you need cottage, the Saturday morning farmers market, the Mulberry pancakes, the quiet evenings under a clear sky, the warm sunrise, the afternoon thunderstorm, the Kaarkloof reserve........and more. Hosts were available and helpful.

This was our second stay at lions river country cottages. The setting is tranquil as it is set in the meandering hills of the midlands. The units we have have stayed in is the protea and lavender cottages and both offer a very well set out and private accommodation. Lots to do in the area but the cottages are well worth staying in for. Will be returning

Stayed in Protea Cottage, It had everything we need from fully equipped kitchen, to outside bbq area, fire place for those cold winter nights. Bed was very comfortable and the electric blankets were most welcome on a cold winters night ! The views from Protea cottage are simply beautiful. Lions River Cottages is a stone throw away from great restaurants as well as the Midlands Meander.

I only needed an overnight stopover, so I haven't seen what it's like in daylight, but everything was promising enough that I will make a point of coming back for a few days' stay. I arrived in the dark and rain, and had a small problem finding the partly-hidden sign pointing to Lavender Cottage, but otherwise it was all great. Excellent finishes, everything worked, no complaints at all - looking forward to exploring the area sometime soon. Very good value all round.

Lovely spacious accommodation with well equipped kichen including an emergency light for load shedding and a gas option for cooking.. There was an Eskom outage and the staff were available late in the evening to assist. Would reccommend it to other travellers!

Excellent accomodation. Great stay. Cottage was clean and in good condition. Fireplace came in really handy and the wood supply lasted for the duration of our stay. Coffee and tea and other amenities all available
