We love hosting appreciative conference delegates! Small groups can really benefit from our hands-on approach and flexibility: we offer exclusive use of the lodge for up to 20 delegates sharing and we go the extra mile to ensure a successful conference. We are glad that our new Photogame team build was well-received and look forward to introducing it to future groups. Word of mouth is always the best marketing tool, so thank you for this review.....your group input was instrumental in the success of the conference.

Great stay at Stonecutters Lodge. Wonderful hosts in Margi and Lesley, friendly staff and a beautiful setting. The breakfasts were fantastic and they catered for some of my rather fussy grandchildren ! We will definitely be back.

On our way from Johannesburg to Graskop and then to the Kruger Park we spent one night in this lovely lodge. We really enjoyed the nice environment and the great hospitality. The dinner and the breakfast were excellent. We can really recommend this place also for a longer stay.

The hospitality is great. Greeting on arrival was welcoming. Chef is amazing and very attentive to detail. Food was great. A pool would be good for kids entertainment. Attention to cleanliness is required. Overall our weekend was good.

Thanks for your positive feedback Bonnie, we are pleased that you enjoyed your time with us. Regarding the comment re cleanliness, just prior to your arrival there was a leaking valve on one of the bathroom geysers that dripped through and caused a small patch of ceiling damage and some wall staining. This has now been addressed and repainted. We must point out that we are most particular about deep cleaning in all the houses and our overall rating in this regard is excellent. Best Wishes Lesley

"Cobbles 6 is the best! It's a tiny bit further to walk, but it catches glorious morning rays of sunshine through the forest. Very private."
"Studios a little small for self catering & do not have an oven, but gas braai.otherwise fine if you intend to eat at the restaurant."
"You can't go wrong here but if more than 1 couple seek out one of the cottages"
"Trout house is a stand alone house for bigger groups"
"We stayed in the Trout House - excellent self-catering accommodation with the option to dine at the main Lodge."
