I have spent six weeks with friends in Gillitts and returned home to the UK yesterday morning. I am writing this note to the management and staff with the greatest of thanks for the welcome, kindness and hospitality that I received upon my visits to the gardens and restaurant. I have nothing but the highest praise for the staff, from Mongeni on the gate to Promise in the restaurant, the friendly gardeners and reception staff. Your establishment is 100% quality and became my 'second home' during my visit. Thank you so much, I will be back and hopefully with friends and family from the UK..

I just wanted to commend you guys on the awesome service that you provide. Besides the beautiful setting, the service always keeps me coming back for more albeit I live in the North of Durban.
I have recently had two events there ...a baby shower (in the Library bar)and then more recently a friend's birthday (on the Deck at the Restaurant) and on both occasions, your team went out of its way to accommodate my needs for the events.
Both times were extremely successful and the "guests of honour" were very pleased. Thank you very much, keep it up!

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for this weekend. You were so amazing from day 1 – replying to my emails, accommodating my requests and ensuring everything went off according to plan! In addition your bar staff, particularly Senzo were wonderful – friendly and helpful, always attentive without being continuously in the room.
All in all I thought the service was fantastic, the food was delicious, and my entire event went so well, all thanks to you, so I really am so very grateful and wouldn’t hesitate recommending you and your team to my friends, family and colleagues.
Please forward my mail on to your respective managers. Once again – thank you so much!
One of the most beautiful spots on the planet - if you have not visited, you are missing out...
We got married @ Makaranga Garden Lodge, what a beautiful venue, absolutely breathtaking!!!
Great place, great food, awesome staff, child friendly xxx
My Hubby and I had the most amazing lunch at Makaranga's Nonna's Restaurant! We had originally booked a picnic but due to rain landed up eating at Nonna's and so glad we did. The Hospitality is OUTSTANDING, the food DELICIOUS and the Venue BREATHTAKING! Cannot wait to return on a Sunny Day for our picnic!
