I stayed at The Lodge for one night in September 2022. I was passing through, driving from KZN to JNB Airport and had split the drive into two sections. The Lodge Bethal features several independent apartment like rooms, most of them with individual parking spots. The exterior is colorful in red tones and with plenty of green plants. Weavers and cape sparrows were busy in the trees. The room itself was clean and quite spacious. The restaurant offered very good food as well as a very good breakfast all at reasonable prices. I had the last feline sighting there, a beautiful grey cat, very friendly, enjoyed pets. Highly recommended :-)

The whole set up is great with beautiful surrounds and great rooms which are designed with privacy in mind. The rooms are spacious and well appointed with a large flat screen TV screen. All facilities are supplied in the rooms and I can certainly recommend this establishment

Very pleasant stay. The rooms were clean and neat. The room lighting was very bad and dark. The check in and check out times does not correspond with booking.com. When I called I was told room will be available at 15.00 instead of the booking.com website saying 14.00. I was told by reception that I must check out at 9.00 where booking.com indicated 10.00. Overall good short stay.

Passing through Bethal stayed 1 night at the Lodge. Never expected such a nice room, spotlessly clean with all essential facilities.
There is a bar & restaurant on site &, as we had travelled a long way, opted for dinner at the Lodge. The food was excellent with a variety of choice & the prices very reasonable.
Never expected such quality in Bethal & will use this route (& the Lodge) again.

We recently had a wonderful stay at The Lodge. Well appointed, spacious and comfortable rooms with great privacy. Excellent value for money and a great choice for a weekend stay.
This is clearly a well-run establishment thanks to a professional management team.
Thank you to the attention to detail and care.

The room was well furnished & eqipped. It would be helpful if the bar frig kept things cold for guest's items. The noise of trucks on the main road made sleeping difficult in one of the rooms but wasn't noticeable in the other room. Unfortunately there was live music playing next door till late.
The meal in the restaurant was excellent and good value. The host and all staff were very friendly
and helpful. A good stopping off point on the way back to Johannesburg airport from Kruger.

The Lodge is exceptionally well maintained. Friendly staff and good management. The food exceeded all expectations. This was a last minute booking which turned out to be a blessing in disguise. A perfect place for an overnight stay.

Our last night after spending 5 weeks in Southern Africa was spent at The Lodge. We were welcomed by the proprietor Kevin to the perfect place to rest before making our final approach to O. R. Rambo Airport for our return flights home.

This was a sanctuary for us after our weeks of travel in some pretty gritty places. The location allowed us the advantage of being a short distance (only 2 hrs..)from the airport thus avoiding Johannesburg. the room was beautifully decorated and the restaurant was superb. The proprietor Kevin put together an insightful itinerary for us which allowed us to check our rental car in and fill our day with some final sightseeing using public transportation rather than waiting around the airport all day. We could not have possibly come up without such a plan.

Thank you Kevin. We appreciate you efforts. What a great host.
