DescriptionWelcome to the Lythwood Lodge web site. We hope that you will enjoy perusing the site and find something that will interest you sufficiently to visit us at some future date. We believe that we offer the casual visitor, the conference attendee or the wedding guest a venue that provides true peace and tranquility supported by personal service that is the equal of any top international establishment.
We believe in excellence and the National Grading Council's award of five stars is a reflection of that policy.
Lythwood is positioned 23 kilometres from the main N3 highway linking Durban and Johannesburg and is right in the middle of the well known craft area known as the Midlands Meander. The property is set right at the end of a beautiful valley on 110 hectares (276 acres) with the Lion's River at one end and an amphitheatre of natural forest at the other.
Ambience As a five star graded hotel, visitors can expect a high standard of luxury in all areas of the hotel and superb service from our Zulu staff. Our cuisine which only uses local ingredients has received much acclaim for its quality and variety of taste and the lodge's wine list is recognised as being one of the finest in Natal. This is very much a hotel that is owned and managed by a family familiar with five star standards and expectations.
Lythwood Lodge reflects elegance and opulence in each of its rooms, and offers:
It is set amidst an ampitheatre of mountains covered by indigenous forest. Offering exceptional cuisine, warm hospitality and attention to detail, Lythwood is the ideal place for executive conferences. Teambuilding is a speciality.
