Lidwala Lodge provided a pleasant stay, even though I was there for only one night. The staff were friendly and welcoming, providing ample advice about the Mlilwane Sanctuary and places to eat for dinner. They have an excellent hiking trail behind the Lodge, which takes about 2 hours round trip to complete. If you're lucky, the Lodge's dog may guide you up the mountain for free!
Regarding the room itself, I was staying in a dormitory and there could have been more space. However, lockers were provided and there was an ensuite as well. There also could have been a bit more atmosphere at the place, so if you're looking for a true backpacking place you may want to look elsewhere. That being said, this place was clean, close to the main road, and was good value for my one night stay there.
