I went there for a week-long conference. The facilities were great, but I think the conference outgrew the infrastructure. For example, there were too few toilets for the number of delegates. The different venues, sound and visual aids were good. Enough parking. Good food. Friendly and helpful staff. More...

The location is well maintained and has beautiful grounds, it is peaceful and really a lovely place. The staff are excellent. A little note would be to upgrade the DSTV package as it is rather limited and to maintain the kettles in the rooms as it was not suitable for use - I would definitely return. More...

Top Mark's for incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Very clean and well organised. But room decor in need of an update, especially the bathroom, room 2 bath paint or reskinning wrinkled. The pillows are very hard, an alternative softer one kept in the wardrobe would have been wonderful. A plug next to a mirror also needed, the extension on the hairdryer should be a temporary measure only. Finally your lake is so beautiful but no breakfast tables available with a view of the lake. Breakfast very good though, and once again all helpful and well informed serving staff. More...

Spent three nights at St Ives with my family recently and had a most fantastic stay in the executive chalets. Cynthia, the receptionist was welcoming and the very essence of charm and helpfulness. The setting is fantastic with zebra, dear, wildebeest etc roaming free around the estate. The food at the main restaurant was excellent and beautifully served whether it was breakfast or an evening dinner. All together a very pleasant and enjoyable experience More...

Was a pleasant and easy walk with loads of bird life, some buck, and butterflies. Took about an hour to complete the walk. There is also a 5.5km trail. Lovely venue for a family outing. More...

The Boma is very nice. Bar like and sit down. Nice outside children's section. I just wish their menu was more diverse

A really relaxed family lunch venue. Great entertainment for the kids. A fairly simple menu, but if you are up for a burger, pizza or a steak then there should be something to catch your interest. Also the option of a 3.5 or 5.5 km walk, or a spot of fishing, if that is your thing. (Fishing permit required and must be purchased; walks free of charge.) No pets allowed at the boma, but they can join you for the walk. More...

The decor in the rooms is a bit "tired" and cushions on the bed looked a bit grubby. We did not try the restaurant. More...

As my wife and I needed a place to stay while attending a function in Howick, we decided on St.Ives and took some of our family for a weekend break. Our previous visit to St.Ives was many years ago.The "new" St.Ives has some nice changes, with much improved facilities. We enjoyed the new Boma with its bar and restaurant and the playground for kids was great. The wildlife is always a pleasure to watch.I like the new rules regarding picnicking and will be back for some fishing. More...

The rooms were always clean when we returned and the addition of gowns in the rooms were a nice extra. I would definitely recommend this accommodation experience. More...

Attended a wedding at St Ives and stayed over for two nights in the luxury suites. The suite was indeed luxurious with a double bed, many pillows, crisp white linen and big fluffy towels. The bonus was the seeing the buck and zebra so close to the lodge. The check in went smoothly and so did the check out. Caution, take an iron with you, especially if you are attending a wedding on site. More...

We absolutely loved our stay at St Ives! Its the second time weve stayed there, & well certainly go again. We love the bird life & the various antelope & zebra that greet us every morning. Its a good idea to bring your own braai tongs, a dish for meat & a salad bowl or plastic dish if youre planning to barbecue, because these items are not provided in the units. Mind you, if one asked Im sure that these items would be available. Everything else was lovely! More...

We arrived after dark and were directed to our room by the very polite security guard. It was out of season so was very quiet. Got the impression that we were the only guests. Room was very well appointed and comfortable. Wonderful to wake up in the morning to find an assortment of buck grazing outside our room. Breakfast was excellent and made all the more special as the setting is so pretty. Overall great value for money More...

An ideal getaway close to Durban in the Midlands, St Ives offers sparkling clean and upmarket accommodation close to restaurants and shopping treasures. The beautifully maintained rolling lawns are a treat and one immediately feels relaxed. The wildlife on the estate literally grazes on the lawn outside your window, and the staff go out of their way to accommodate your every need. The relaxing Boma Bar on the properties lake is ideal for light meals and sundowners, and your host Des will make you want to linger longer, mingling with the locals and fellow travelers alike. A gem on our doorstep and highly recommended to overseas tourists. We will keep returning. More...

Stole away for a short getaway to the Midlands with my wife.we stayed at the St Ives lodge. It was my first time staying up in the Midlands and didn't know what to expect. I booked this place online. on our arrival there we were warmly welcomed and speedily checked and given direction to our rooms. the room was huge and very spacious,not forgetting the bed which would probably sleep four people. the room was fresh,neat and tidy. the setting and scenery was absolutely beautiful. it was a cold evening,the room was adequately stocked with firewood,so we lit up the fireplace.Nice and cosy. we found that different types of animals feed on this property,buck,zebra etc. The breakfast was very good. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will surely be back. More...

St Ives is a great place to use as a base to explore the Midlands Meander.The property is home to Wildebeest, Zebra, Blesbok & Impala which are always a hit with kids. The units are kept clean and have everything you need, as breakfast is provided at the lakeside restaurant.For dinner there is the choice of the Boma Restaurant which is on the property, or a number of nearby restaurants.St Ives is conveniently located near Midmar, and being directly across the road from Piggly Wiggly is also a plus!We will be back!!

We just stayed for 2 nights with our 2 young children. Lovely grounds with free roaming antelope, zebra and wildebeest. |There was a pool (although too cold to swim) and excellent climbing frames and play areas for the kids. |Breakfast was lovely . Only downsides to the trip were:|1) finding someone else’s toenail in the bathroom! |2) not being offered table service at breakfast for drinks other than tea or filter coffee. Would have loved a latte! my husband can only drink decaf coffee due to health reasons - and none was provided. |3) no face cloths. |4) no small toiletries so when in the bath the only shampoo available was in the fixed bottle in the shower , so my husband had to put some into a small container for me from the shower and give to me in the bath |Even given the above points I would still stay here again and highly recommend!

We stayed in the luxury suite number 14 - Room smelt lovely and fresh, bed was an extra king size so was huge and extremely comfortable. The only complaint about the room is that it said self catering and yet there was not a stove or pots or the likes, only a microwave. The grounds are beautiful with zebra and buck right on your door step. Lovely pool area with jungle gym for the kids. Boma bar was very festive (also great for kids with a zip line and jumping castle). The location of St Ives is just perfect for a great trip along the meandor. Will definitely return sometime soon hopefully. More...

Visited the Midland Meander on Monday & Tuesday this week and took a chance by not booking accommodation. We were at Piggly Wiggly and spotted wildebeest over the R103 and noticed the St Ives, took a chance and popped over. Helpful receptionist got us into a couple of standard suites...be warned reception can close early! No food on site on a Monday but lots of helpful hints as to where to go. Suite was perfect and included a microwave and eating utensils. Breakfast was great. Grounds fantastic so we had a free mini safari. More...

How awesome when the function you planned runs as smoothly as you planned it, the venue is stunning, the food great, the service top notch and the owners / hosts oversee a professional operation . ..... and the reviews from your guests are tops . St Ives offers a stunning Boma set on a beautiful dam with awesome craft beers and craft fun apart from the usual favorites. The food is tops and if you are a resident in the lovely rooms for he night you can even give a little bass fishing a shot. The function venue is picturesque and the view over the dam and Midlands stunning.
