The Highlander was named after the Scottish Highlands, which the area around the hotel resembles. The hotel, which was formerly known as the Peebles Country Lodge, was voted the ‘Most Romantic Hotel‘ during the International Luxury Hotel of the year awards. The retreat has become popular as a stopover accommodation option for visitors traveling to and from the Kruger National Park. This welcoming country retreat in Mpumalanga caters to both the corporate and leisure guest. To keep with the romantic setting of the hotel, the rooms feature log fireplaces, and marshmallows are freely available for toasting. The bar at the hotel is every whiskey lover’s dream, offering over 200 single malt whiskeys to choose from. The hotel is closely located to all the main shopping areas and guests can easily walk from the hotel to the shops and spend a day browsing. The hotel features a bar, a restaurant, and a gym.

What a great place! A little gem hidden within a South African oasis. Thank you for the hospitality, the friendly faces and the memories. The trip ended, but I'll always have the memories - that I will undoubtedly freshen up on my next visit.

"The rooms are large and sunny, and very quiet."
"I enjoyed the rooms over looking the trout dam"
"Some rooms were under improvement and I would love to try those next time!"
"Room one is noisy and too close to general areas"
"The rooms near the main restaurant are easier, just because the paths and steps are steep."
