We had an enjoyable stay here. The grounds are lovely. There is wi-fi in the rooms. Our room had a large sheltered area at the entrance, large enough for a comfortable sofa. Be aware that there are only South African outlets (Type M) in the room. The kitchen could have been more accommodating at breakfast. I did not want eggs, bacon, sausage and the like. I got one slice of tomato and a tablespoon of mushrooms. The next morning I asked for larger portions, and indeed got more - two slices of tomato and two tablespoons of mushrooms, not very generous. Thankfully there was bread to partly make up for it.

Lovely location with in walking distance to restaurants and shops set in a beautifully maintained garden. Nicely appointed comfortable rooms, unfortunately the outside lights and white curtains in the room make for a very light room at night. Also we felt they skimmed on the details, no drinking water in the room -a big negative - if you want some you have to buy it from them or bring your own (a complementary bottle in the room would be nice) also only powdered milk was provided for tea/coffee in the rooms (a little jug of fresh milk in the room fridge would be much nicer than powdered milk ). Staff were efficient and helpful. Laundry was a hefty price.

We had such a warm welcome with Michelle and Zanele! The rooms and the lodge are so beautifully decorated within the wetlands dune forest to allow for amazing walks, bird watching etc. The lodge is quiet with a lovely pool area in a beautiful cultivated garden to relax and overlooking the river estuary. The service is excellent. We will be back !

Sweet place, great rooms, super staff. The manager was very helpful to us with booking a sunset hippo ride and organizing some paperwork for a border crossing. Excellent breakfast! The hippo visiting the garden was a bonus.

The Honeymoon suite allocated was excellent overlooking gardens of property. Nevertheless, Wi-Fi was non-existent all 4 days and inconvenient, also no access to a TV. Guest should be able to access sitting room in main house at all times with a communal TV if no individual TV’s made available in rooms. Excellent breakfast and maid service was exemplary.

We spent a couple of nights at Kingfisher Lodge in February. The purpose of the trip was primarily birding and the lodge was perfect. Ideally located right next to the iGwalagwala trail, we had immediate access to the best habitats of the area. The lodge is at the end of the road, so it was nice and quiet, but an easy walk to all the amenities in town. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Kingfisher's Lodge lies at the end of mainstreet - just next to the beginning of couple of nice trails. Friendly staff, nice breakfast and a wonderful view from the room. Stayed for four nights in the one and only room facing the river valley - stunning!

We are a family of 6 (children ranging from 15 to 8) and we spent 3 nights are the lodge. The rooms were very comfortable and had everything we could asked for. The team/host were very helpful and very friendly and warm; the children didn't want to leave anymore. The breakfast was amazing: so much delicious variety. Couldn't recommend more staying at this place

After 20 years we were back at the Kingfisher Lodge. It was a faboulus experience, the lodge was as wonderful as always. We enjoied the garden, the food, the relaxing atmosphere and the friendly staff. St. Lucia is always worth visiting with the hippos and the crocodiles all around

The place was great and I really loved the garden and the trees, bushes and flowers everywhere. They have a few "visitors" which I totally loved. We did not see the hippos which come there by night from time to time but we had a little red duiker and a lot of birds which I loved. The house cat joined me in the morning while I was watching the birds from our terrace. The staff was great and very helpful. The room was nice and every room has its own terrace. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was nice. We did not use the pool but it looked good. We also used the laundry service and the clothes came back great and clean.

Room Tip: I think all rooms are the same so no special recommendation on that.
