About King's Lodge Hotel

Situated in the heart of the quaint mountain village of Hogsback, the King's Lodge is a country hotel set in peaceful surroundings, offering cosy and comfortable accommodation, excellent food and a warm welcome. The colonial homestead offers affordable accommodation in homely en-suite hotel rooms and quaint self-catering cottages.

Situated in the heart of the Hogsback, King's Lodge Hotel is the ideal base from which to take in all that Hogsback has to offer. Indulge in scenic mountain walks, explore the galleries and craft shops or visit the area's justly famous gardens with their stunning displays of rhododendrons and azaleas.

We offer guided tours on request and there are also established tourist routes taking in the Xhosa and British colonial history of the region.

A wonderful getaway for all ages, Hogsback is both a rejuvenating and relaxing escape from the hum-drum of city life. The King's Lodge Hotel is your home away from home.

Wedding Venues: Hogsback hosts a very quaint little chapel, see attached. Our garden is big enough for a marquee up to 150 people. We do not have our own marquee. There is a big dining hall that can accommodate up to 80 people

                                  Stayed overnight and had a great experience: friendly and accommodating staff; lovely, clean room; beautiful gardens; good breakfast. Though I stayed in a room there are also cottages available, which look quaint and lovely.

                                  Old, dilapidated and filthy. So disappointing as was expecting so much more. The staff were also rude and I personally heard the manager swear at workers. The food was disgusting, the chef special was obviously defrosted on the plate. No need to say more because nothing will change!!!! Good luck to the next guest's.

                                  Enjoyable stay. Rondawels are in need of an upgrade. They are getting a bit dilapidated but then so is the whole of the Hogsback

                                  I stayed at the King's Lodge Hotel from the 22nd to the 24th of August and the rooms were amazing. The service is top notch and the food is brilliant! My girlfriend and I had an amazing time. I recommend King's Lodge to couples because it is amazing!

                                  Really enjoyed the evening we stayed at the Lodge. The young couple who run the Lodge did their utmost to make our stay very enjoyable!
