The Lodge
Ranked #1 of 6 Bethal B&B and Inns
Reviewed 14 October 2015

Very good rooms and most probably the best hotel in the area. Well served, secure parking, good minin bar and very food dining at the lodge. It also serves the best breakfast in most hotels I stay. The only issues I have is no wifi in room, no pool on sight but good air conditioning. The major issue I have is that they switch off the fridges on timers from around 11pm to come on around 9am, so cooldrinks are luke warm in the morning.

Room Tip: Ask for the 4 star hotels at the back. The ones in front may pick up wifi but are 3 stars, more nois...

Good day Mr. JohnL, firstly thank you for your positive review. All the effort and hard work the staff give to make our guests feel comfortable and relaxed paid off.
All our rooms 3* and 4* do have wi-fi. It might be that you tried it just the two minutes it takes for the system to reset twice a day. Please advice the room you stayed in so we can just double check.
Bethal is the most central town in the highveld therefore the climate is of such that a
swimming pool will just not be used enough.
We found that in the early mornings when you can hear a needle drop the fridge makes a noise that is disturbing for a peace full sleep. Switching of the fridge just works perfectly for that perfect nights rest at The Lodge.
Thanks again for your time to review The Lodge and we hope to be of excellent service to you again in the near future.

We recently had a wonderful stay at The Lodge. Well appointed, spacious and comfortable rooms with great privacy. Excellent value for money and a great choice for a weekend stay.
This is clearly a well-run establishment thanks to a professional management team.
Thank you to the attention to detail and care.

Amazing to check in to a place and not be able to see a single "maintenance" issue. Being in the hospitality industry ourselves we notice the little things and The Lodge is just perfect! Great hospitality. Great service. Value for money. Kid friendly :)

Being away from Singapore, the owners of the B&B have made me feel so warm and so much at home. Lovely food and environment. Even the cat sometimes visit me at my room.

Thank you for making me feel so much at home.
