Hi Unfortunately we do not have Family room, How ever if your booking was made early, then I am sure the reservation staff would have accommodated you in the Rose Cottages.. They are 3 rooms next to each other and are child friendly. The lodge must have been full if your rooms were split. Regards Dave O'Halloran More

Battlefields Country Lodge provides an excellent location to visit Battlefields. It is very easy to find thr key sites from the Guest house. We found the services very good and felt safe during our stay. The personnel was polite and friendly and all the basic service were available. Parking facilities were safe and we even got our car washed.

An ok hotel with plenty of things to do. We found it a functional hotel which was average in terms of quality of facilities and service too. If however you're looking for sporting facilities then this would be terrific.

The location is very scenic with a lake and wedding chapel, and herds of game in the adjacent field. But the accommodation blocks are functional and meals are basic. Breakfast, packed lunch and dinner were the worst of our tour. There was a large wedding reception during our stay but very few people staying in the hotel.

The hotel was OK. The rooms were located in two large blocks with the restaurant in a separate building. The rooms were large with self-catering facilities if required - there was a microwave and refrigerator in the room. Dining was buffet style with large tables. The food was very average. There are two good features about the Battlefields Country Lodge.... More

Stayed here as it is apparently offers less travelling time than other accommodation when visiting the Zulu battlefields including Rourke's drift. It is in the middle of nowhere and reminds me of a Butlins camp - two main accommodation buildings with the dining room in a separate building.

had a good experience, food is excellent. Just few minor glitches needs to be sorted. Drinking water was not available in the room and TV channels were a mess. So just a little bit more attention to the small detail please.
