“Ideally situated, very comfortable and great value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2013

I stayed over for one on business in the area, the Tzaneen Country Lodge was recommended as close by and comfortable. It was a lot more than expected. The Lodge is sotuated just off the main Tzaneen Palabora road in a lovely garden setting. They have a number of activities to help relax you. The rooms are tastefully decorated and very comfortable, service is good, the staff very friendly, the food nicely presented and the price excellent. Real value for money, it will be a definite sleepover in future.
I would recommend it without any hesitation.!

The place is very quiet and in a beautiful area. Good possibilities to get rest and enjoy the mountains with tea, banana's citrus. The lodge has a great spa and restaurant. The service is very good. Hospitallity is their value.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

Our room was quite large, though very dark - shaving and putting on makeup was a real challenge. Nice to have wifi. Good shower (though shampoo was only provided in a sachet, something I haven't seen for years!). Furnishings and decor comfortable though rather dated. Delightful garden outside.

Staff were helpful and friendly.
Food: we chose avocado as a starter, as this is the area's specialty, and it was delicious. Main courses were quite OK though the vegetables looked as tasted as if they had been kept warm for quite some time. Breakfast average.

Neat and clean with good service and value for money.Had to leave early the next morning and asked for a breakfast pack , great effort was taken in preparing this and really was enjoyable.Not the first time I stayed there and is my favorite stop over when visiting that side of Limpopo.Compared to price and value for money ,it is difficult to beat...thanks guys.Oh yes what is always refreshing is to be helped with a wonderful smile.

They show these awsome rooms, but in fact we got a small 1st floor family unit which is small and old with cracks in the walls, views overlooking pertol station...
Also thought we would be able to relax next to the swimming pool, however the pool is under maintenance. One would think that they should inform you when making a booking or at least post it on the website.

It's not exactly in Tzaneen, but the place is lovely with large, clean and comfortable rooms. I had a perfect shower, a nice bed, minibar, tv, and at the receptionarea there's (free) wifi available. A nice bar, a restaurant and a decent breakfastbuffet made the stay very nice. In the surroundings of the lodge, there are a few short and longer walks with chances of wildlifespotting.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2013

We stayed for 4 nights, using as a base to explore the fantastic area. It was not a bad experience but it could have been better. We were in room 14, which had no proper shower, just a spray in the bath. The food was very good, but the menu does not change, so by the fourth night we did not bother, and one evening the lounge was out of bounds for a private party.

On the upside, it is immaculately clean, breakfast was brilliant and the serving and reception staff were really willing and helpful to us two foreigners. And the location is good, easy access to lots of local scenic and cultural attractions.

Room Tip: If you want a shower make sure you get one.
