My wife and I both enjoyed our stay at Lembali Lodge. The staff were outstanding and always friendly and helpful. We had a nice sized room and bathroom but it did come at a price. Our only criticism would be the carpets could do with replacing or at least a good clean.

We rent the whole lodge for a week with our family. Everything was perfect. The location is ideal to reach out easily the key spots in Durban. Service is outsanding. Don't miss the breakfasts and ask for a barbecue!

Unfortunately this started off as a request for a Daddy's Deal booking which does not include our honeymoon suite. Sad to say I made a concession which did not cover OUR cost. I think that under the circumstances Armand should have arranged to have flowers, chocolates and champagne in the room at his own cost!! When guests pay the full...

My husband and I spent one night at Lembali Lodge as an anniversary treat. We had an enjoyable stay. Lovely staff. Clean and comfortable room with a lovely view. Unfortunately, we couldn't make use of the very inviting pool as it was raining. Maybe next time!
