Hunters Lodge is centrally situated in the busy town of Ladysmith. We pride ourselves on providing a restful oasis for the weary traveller and offer a home from home atmosphere - arrive as strangers and leave as friends. We also ensure that our breakfasts satisfy the most hungriest of the hungry. We enjoy what we do and are passionate about giving value for money.
Hunters Lodge comprises of 6 Superior Rooms with Bath and Shower& 10 Standard Rooms with Shower, Air-Conditioning, and Electric Blankets for those chilly nights, select DStv, Tea/Coffee making facilities and are all separate from the main building. We have secure off street parking. Our rooms are extremely comfortable and are maintained to the highest of standards. Our manicured gardens add to the restful ambience that we take pride in offering to our guests.
We offer several function venues. Our conference venue has been colourfully furnished with a modern twist to old ideas which we have found conducive to a lively atmosphere - essential in keeping those delegates awake. We can cater for 24 in a classroom style and more in a cinema arrangement. All the usual facilities of flip charts, white boards and screens are available.
Typically delegates will break to the poolside for mid-morning and afternoon teas, lunches, dinners and evening functions will be held in the dining room.
Prior arrangement for refreshments can be provided for functions.
Ladysmith is strategically situated 2.5 hours from Durban and 3.5 hours from Johannesburg. We are 80 km from Champagne valley in the central Drakensberg and are within easy reach of the Northern berg. We are on the main route from KwaZulu Natal to Kruger National Park in Mpumalanga.
Being close to the mountains and the resorts therein we can recommend game drives, quad biking trails, horse riding and white water rafting and it makes sense to use Ladysmith as central point from which to explore the many attractions. The Drakensberg Boys Choir practice evenings are recommended. Closer to home we can offer our own golf course, game drives with the Big 5, horse riding and many safe cycling routes.
The climate in Ladysmith ranges from stifling hot in summer to frosty cold in winter. The days are usually bright and sunny and the nights clear and ideal for stargazing especially in winter.
