Great kids entertainment in a safe and relaxed environment
Great food, lovely play equipment
Lovely venue, we stayed for three nights and had an amazing time. such a relaxed, peaceful location. The staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms are very comfortable. I would definitely recommend this place. More...
Very very nice place.There is a restaurant and bar.Good food and very friendly staff

Excellent venue with great food for corporate functions or weddings.

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...
place clean and the rooms in good condition
Great spot to relax
Excellent food, excellent service, perfect for mom and dad to have lunch, drinks and chill while kids burn off some energy on the jungle gyms.
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...
A lovely place for family and friends to meet!
What a wonderful place
Best Pizza in the Midlands, Calamari done to perfection. Amazing hang out, great atmosphere. Will be back.
Breathtaking view and delicious food served.
Great venue and great food!
Dewald de Beer
What a nice spot to chill with the family. Set up is old school as you order and collect everything from the bar, so don't go looking for a waiter. Wish they had hot chocolate on the menu but other than that it's an awesome place with an epic play area for the little ones More...
The staff at your resort is excellent, Cynthia and her assistant went out of their way to help us after our booking at Lastingham Lodge was a disaster. Your rooms are superb, clean, so convenient and everything you need is there. The food in your restaurant is superb. Will definitely book again. 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...
We are looking forward to having our wedding here! Everyone is friendly and accommodating. The setting is picturesque, and we particularly enjoyed watching the Zebra, Wildebeest and Impala in the late afternoon.||
A snazzy and interesting venue a must visit for coffee or a meal at the start of the Midlands meander. Beautiful setting
Marlize Wilken Vd Schyff
Food was great. Friendly staff. Great play ground to keep the kids happy. Awesome for the entire family to enjoy quality time together.
Attended the Sunday morning myrun event that starts at 8am. Get Discovery Vitality points. Every Sunday at St Ives!!
Excellent stay, My family were suitably impressed and the stay exceeded our expectations. We have no hesitation in recommending this operation. The staff were friendly, the service excellent, the accommodation very comfortable, the restaurant and food first class. Overall, the experience was excellent. More...
Great Venue, great food, and great staff!
Perfect place and venue for a mid sized conference. Service has been amazing, rooms comfy, food great. Not far from other interesting places to visit.
Amazing, mouthwatering food and amazing vibe.
Great venue for 50'ish pax conference. Excellent service, tasty food.
Love the position with the deck built over the dam and the food and service are good.
Amazing. How house keepers should do thorough check when guests move in and out Sunday we were accused of stealing a gown and accused of breaking a tv which became a very serious hope it was sorted at
Lovely vibe. Good spot to watch sports
We loved our stay there rooms was very clean and comfortable for our family of 4. Food was delicious and a big variety at breakfast. Dinner at the boma was very nice. We can’t wait to go back again soon More...

I stayed at St Ives for 4 days and absolutely loved it, a hidden Gem. Staff were amazing and the grounds are immaculately maintained and are teaming with Zebra, buck and other animals. A truly wonderful experience.
The lodge is beautiful and serene. Breakfast is amazing. One of the places I'd definitely return to in the Midlands. If you wish for a getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city this is the place. Conveniently located opposite piggly wiggly. More...

Nice cosy pub/restaurant. Good atmosphere and great value for money. Burgers definitely recommended. A big thank you to Des, the owner, who was kind enough to help us out with some wood on a super cold evening. Stop by St. Ives Boma if you are in the area. More...
Everything was beyond expectation
What a wonderful place to stay when you are in the midlands. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are well equipped, clean, neat and the fireplace amazing for those cold evenings. Nature at it's best!
Very nice setup. Fantastic for pizzas and burgers. Great place in the meander to watch your sport and enjoy a casual meal.
Good food and nice atmosphere.

This venue is so special and spectacular! My cousin had his Wedding on 11 May 2019 and the wedding will have to be the best we've been apart of and attended.

Awesome place for a great getaway
Surrounded by buck, buffalo etc sets the scene. Tranquil and the units are comfy.On property restaurant provides delicious meals
Definitely worth the money The rooms are spaciousBut not very modernThe bathrooms are okay, but datedThe fact that zebra and other wild Animals are so close by and sometimes right outside your door is pricelessThe video I added is what's exactly on the site
Steve v W
Incredible catering and hospitality
Accommodation is top class, the scenery is perfect, also definitely stop by the Bouma for food and drinks.
Beautiful wedding venue. Definitely 5 star
Pizzas have got much better, pretty place to sit overlooking the lake and their system works very well. Need some sort of shade on really hot days on the deck where the view is, otherwise there are only a couple of tables that can be used for much if the day. I love it otherwise, chilled atmosphere and my Mexican pizza was good and Bombay Sapphire and Fever Tree tonic is the best G&T for us that are not mad about the modern gins. Would recommend for relaxed place. More...
Got takeaway, was decent enough. Nice outside area with small kids area
Corne Van Greuning
Verry nice view, chilled and great service
Always wonderful to visit this place
Great for pizzas
St Ives is a beautiful and peaceful place. The view is amazing.
Great food, great accommodation ,great service
John Van Zyl
Attended a wedding and it was great service, food and all round experience!
Beautiful family vacation.
Lovely place and views....
Had lunch and a craft gin, I misunderstood the mint or pomegranate flavoured gins. I thought they had either mint or pomegranate, but they were literally just flavoured which was a little bit disappointing however still enjoyed. Had a burger with salad, was good, and the service was good as well. Obviously the view is amazing More...
Informal atmosphere...loved it and the best gin and tonic on tap with touch of pomegranate sause...sooo good
I would say the best Pizza I have had in two years.Congrats

An utterly beautiful location. Dinner at the Boma was wonderful and breakfast was amazing! The rooms are lovely and comfortable but we had a terrible night of interrupted sleep due to what I would call a mosquito infestation in the room. Your parking bays could do with an upgrade as well. More...

Best Pizza in KZN!! Awesome atmosphere with the most amazing views.
de mooie tuinen en de grote kamers. Was erg fijn bed en de bijbehorende keuken was een grote plus!.
Despite the constant rain we had a wonderful time especially our 2 1/2 year old Grandson who thoroughly enjoyed fishing and every muddy puddle he could find! It was wonderful to be in such a relaxing place with our family as my son had arrived from the UK as a surprise for my husband's 70th which was on the 27th. Breakfast was really great especially as we could enjoy it as a family which doesn't happen often.The food at the Boma was good too. More...

Good food and drinks!
Love coming to boma. My son absolutely enjoys the play area. And the service there is excellent and Desmond is always friendly (the other staff as well) and up for a chat. Their food is also devine i love Ashley's and their burgers are great to. The atmosphere cant be any better if they tried. Everything about this place is just awesome, love it More...
Okay so the service was a bit slow and the food was okay, but the music and atmosphere over midmar weekend were fantastic and I think its one of the most child friendly places we’ve ever been..... we’ll definitely be back.
We celebrated our 20th Anniversary at St Ives. The food and the service was exceptional. A big thank you to Desmond and the team. My family really enjoyed themselves. I would highly recommend this place to anyone having a wedding or function. More...
pretty rooms, breakfast can be improved
Nice Place to relax and enjoy time with family.
The pizza is of the best around. Craft beer is awesome, and (according to my wife) so is the on tap craft gin. Beautiful setting. We took the kids (4 and 7) on the well marked 3.5km trail. 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...
Awesome place, awesome vibe.
Amazing food, awesome vibe.. Seems to be the place all the locals hang out.. The pizza was fantastic!
Wonderful atmosphere. Safe area for the kids to play and great food.
Fantastic setting for some Gin.
It was was great evening great food and lovely people.
Amazing. Staff awsome
Excellent place relax
I would highly recommend St Ives. The venue is stunning; it was lovely to take a walk around the property and see zebra, wildebeest, and a variety of antelope grazing on the lawns. The room was very comfortable, and the complimentary breakfast was delicious! More...
The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was lovely and spacious. The breakfast was good. We enjoyed sitting on the deck having something to eat and visiting with the local people coming for a Friday afternoon drink

The most beautiful place well priced
We stayed over one night, and can highly recommend it. Super clean room. Friendly professional service. Quality. And fantastic little boma restaurant and pub with excellent drinks selection including craft beer options on tap. Loved it.
This is the eating area for the St Ives lodge n wedding venue . A basic decent menu. The Sirlion steak brought back good flavour memories. The butter chicken curry pizza was awesome.Friendly barman. Great feeling. Absolutely recommended as a short holiday resort. Swimming pool. Very clean. Buck roaming around. More...
Gorgeous location with a view over the dam.
Nice and relaxed place
Great vibe but strangely no waiters. Bar service only!

This venue is conveniently situated across the road from the Piggly Wiggly. Open carports are available to protect cars from storms but they are not directly outside the units so remember to take an umbrella. (Umbrellas are available in the bedrooms but you need to get there first!). The bedlinen was spotless and the beds very comforable. 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...
The rooms are awesome and fully modern with bath and shower. For the person or family wanting clean and organised. Parking spots by the room.
The balcony overlooks the green grounds with buck wandering around.
Fireplace and TV in the suite. WiFi, fridge, microwave, kettle, cutlery, hairdryer.
Once again, a wonderful place where you are guaranteed to be happy and amazed at the value for money. More...
An awesome place for conferencing, weddings and other functions.Very hospitable staff
What a beautiful venue
Represents the perception perfectly. Family friendly nice beer and food not expensive and seemingly clean
I was here for a drink with some friends at the end of a half-day road trip. The atmosphere is really nice, cosy and quite, and the view from the terrace over the lake is amazing. Would divinely recommend this place as a way to relax, have a drink and just chat with friends. More...
Breath taking views! Lovely weekend getaway.Quiet, peaceful and I absolutely loved the wood stove. Great value for money in fabulous location. I can recommend it to anyone looking for a nice place on the meander with all the amenities of a hotel. 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 staff were extremely helpful, friendly and went out of their way to make our stay pleasant.||The rooms are exquisite and the property views are breathtaking. There was no lack of choice when it came to the breakfast spread and the rooms were always well stocked with a variety of teas, coffees and there was even hot chocolate. 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...
Breathtaking views, luxury suites and amazing hospitality. The fireplace in the suites was a clever touch. Situated directly opposite Piggly Wiggly gave us ample opportunity to cram in as much activities in a day as possible.
Tolle Anlage mit vielen Tieren. Sehr leckeres Frühstück!.
safe and comfortable place to get away from the everyday stress, with many activities on site (including fishing and hiking)as well as near-by. Ideal for families wanting a short break. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. 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...
Rooom didn’t look like the picture. We only stayed 1night, didn’t have breakfast there as we had to leave early. They did pack us a breakfast pack though. Not bad for a one night sleep over. More...
It was my visit trip to the midlands and booked a BNB via the net based on pic. It was horrible. I booked the same night we went to dinner @ the Boma @ St Ives. Looking @ the lovely views, i had to try and book. I was able to book for the next morning. Catherine was amazing and accommodated my request to check in early as i just wanted to get out of my hell. What a lovely place. Amazing rooms, staff n food. Breath taking views. O and not forgetting the wild life. Thank u Catherine and the staff of St Ives 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!!

Enjoyed a lovely 2 day break with my wife. Excellent breakfast. Good location, right opposite Piggly Wiggly. Great stay overall.

My husband and I popped into St Ives for one night and we were pleasantly surprised by how quaint and comfortable the accommodation was. The staff were amazing and very friendly!! It’s great value for money! |The food was great and accommodation was very comfortable. St Ives is also very central if you wanting to sight see or pop out for a meal, drink or coffee.|We are looking forward to going back soon. More...
Rooms were clean and spacious with all the modcons including free wifi. The full English breakfast offered everything that could be expected and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. The boma was very festive, a lovely roaring fire adding to the ambiance. Cheese burger in the boma was very tasty The grounds are beautiful with buck grazing in the field, will definitely 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...
The view from the entrance told me I'm in for a real treat. The reception staff added to the exquisite view with warm and laughter. Oh my word, the rooms to my breath away and same as the breakfast service and food. Can't stop talking and thinking about this experience to this day. Thank you very much, you got it just RIGHT!!!

After attending a wedding at St Ives before, we could not wait to return with the kids. Beautiful open landscape, roaming zebra, wildebeest and the likes, was a sure treat for the little ones. Close to all the gems of the midlands, the venue is perfectly situated. The family suite is huge and homely, catering for every need. A pizza and gin on tap at the boma is a must! Try the "ashley" its a winner! Friendly warm service by all staff and a delicious breakfast is always welcoming. 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. One couldn’t ask for more - well done to Ashley and Catherine for running a fine show at a beautiful venue in the Midlands. More...
The place makes for a good wedding venue, indoor wedding or outdoor, both can be done beautifully. Very easy to find the place
Stunning venue for weddings. The hosts (Catherine and Ashley) are very friendly and the food is amazing!
So far great service and awesome staff members.
Most delicious pizza I ever tasted!

Lovely comfortable large room with clean bathroom and all of the amenities we needed - really good value for money. loved the decor and the little touches like the candle holders and other ornaments. And a wonderful meal at the Boma restaurant with probably the best ribs we have had. More...

What an amazing lodge! Best pizzas while overlooking an incredible view on the water. Wildlife roaming past your room is such a great sight. Spacious rooms and yummy breakfast. We wish we had more time to stay another day. More...
