Hornbill Lodge
Ranked #1 of 10 Magaliesburg B&B and Inns
Reviewed 11 August 2014

An absolute Gem in Magalies. Cobie, family and staff made the experience and hospitality of such word class standards it was a weekend never to be forgotten. We got engaged on Friday night 8 August 2014 at the venue and everyone went above and beyond to keep it a surprize whilst catering to our every need. From decor to food and Cobie and son's knowledge of the area to recommend the most amazing places to visit. We thank you very much for making the weekend getaway something special. Clean, neat, tranquil and truly an amazing atmosphere.

Room Tip: Any room should be perfect.

As a fathersday gift our children spoiled us with a weekend away, we had lovely food, time at the fireplace, good service. A picnic next to the river, for a romantic touch and sundowners on the deck. In the morning we went to climb the koppie, and went for a drink to Black Horse. They even gave us some of the lovely butternut soup to take home! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Room Tip: all rooms seemed the same

Thank you Hornbill lodge for the lovely stay. Food was nice with very generous portions. Best chocolate mousse around.Picnic down by the river very nice, food enough for 6 people though and not 2 :). The pool is great and the donkey and dogs are fun to watch. Thank you arranging dinner poolside for us and going out of your way connecting lights for our dinner outside. The service was great and everyone is friendly and willing to go over and above to make our stay a pleasurable one. Sam is the best.

I am almost scared to write this review, but it seems the secrets out already. We managed to squeeze in for the night on Heritage Day and our next available weekend is in November....Hornbill Lodge is not just a weekend getaway it's almost a home from home and Kobie, Kobie, Muriel, Caroline and Sam are streets ahead of the rest - if you want to learn the word hospitality simply pay a visit and prepare to be amazed. The accommodation is excellent, menu is simple but exceptionally prepared and facilities are perfect for families. We have been visiting Hornbill for over a year and will continue to do so for many more. We do need to get clever though and start booking all our trips well in advance, because the secrets out and you people are taking our available rooms......ah well just means we need to book for the year and be at peace with it.

Room Tip: Have been in most of them and all are great....

From the time I made the booking until my departure Cobie and his team were excellent. When I arrived I was made to feel at home. The food is delicious. I have strongly recommended Hornbill to colleagues and friends. I plan to take my wife on weekend out.
