“Relaxed retreat close to Pilanesberg”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

If you're looking for a relaxing place to stay which won't kill your budget close to Pilanesberg, this is certainly a good option. It's about a 20 minute drive from the park, is set in quiet surroundings, and is well located towards the freeway if you want to head back in the direction of JHB/ PTA. We found the lodge overall pleasant, friendly staff, spacious room with a good, high pressure shower, great bed and flatscreen tv. Food in the restaurant was limited in choice in the evening, but nonetheless of good quality. Breakfast was very decent, with plenty of hot/ cold/ sweet & savoury options. Interesting collection of anglo boer war souvenirs, although we didn't have time to visit the museum. Would certainly return when visiting Pilanesberg again.

Kedar Lodge was a wonderful break from a business trip. They have wonderful restaurants on the property and even as a vegan with a ton of food allergies, they were able to accommodate me with several options, even at the buffet dinners. The staff was friendly and I highly recommend the spa. The room was very comfortable. We were able to walk around the property and see zebras, other animals and even hippos. They also arranged a a safari tour for us and we were picked up at the property. There are also other tours and adventures if you arrange to go to Sun City, which is fairly close. The lodge is also full of historical information, photos and art about the property, people and the general area.

We booked two rooms, one fir the kids and one for us. The rooms were awesome- clean, comfortable and cosy. The service was awesome. Staff were friendly and attentive. The bar was lovely in the evenings and again- the staff were attentive, acknowledging us the second evening and having memorized our drinks and needs. We loved the suppers in the bar. On the down side: we were moved twice, first because of something that tripped the switches in our room and this meant both rooms had to be moved. Secondly there was a power outage that caused the generator to kick in and our room was next to the generator. On this second night we never slept as the generator made such a noise. However on being moved again- we never did not mind, it was so coordinated to I convince us as little as possible- the staff moved our stuff and nothing was Amis when we returned from sun city! Truly awesome! AA

I selected the Kedar Country Lodge because it is close to Pilanesburg National Park, though initially we had planned to stay in Cabanas in Sun City. Very close to Pilanesburg park, just 20 - 25 minutes drive!!. Very rustic location with some wild life inside the resort. We had very little time to fully explore the place as it is very big. But a stroll on walkways is a must. You can see lot of birds and animals. Nice location for swimming pool. Food quality could be improved with more variety added. But it was clean. The rooms are slightly away from restaurant, so staying is really quite. Better option for costly Sun City hotels, if you are planning to visit Pilanesburg for a full day.

The rooms are cottage style- two rooms for each hut- very well maintained and had a bit of a rustic safari feel. The gardens were very well maintained. The rooms were very clean, the bed linens and towels were also clean. They provided a space heater in the room which was not very adequate in heating to room. The breakfast buffet was good and included lots of choices, the ambiance of the breakfast area was very nice. Overall, we enjoyed the stay in the lodge and would definitely choose this again. The location was convenient to Pilanesburg.

We stopped at the Kedar Lodge to see the Paul Kruger museum located on the premises. On the internet it says open every day with no specific time slots for tours. As we arrived the lady at the front desk informed us there will not be no tour on that day. As we are from Cape Town and passing by we were very disappointed. We asked if we can see the manager and we told him that on the internet he advertises tours every day. He was very accommodating and organised a tour guide to take us to the Paul Kruger house and museum. We paid R35pp for the tour. Very interesting and we enjoyed it.

A very nice lodge/rooms near Sun City, well worth the short drive away from the casino and into a natural, pretty setting. Rooms clean and comfortable, although the heater did not work. Breakfast was excellent.
