Irene Country Lodge expands and refurbishes property


African Pride Irene Country Lodge has added a boardroom suite to its list of facilities and, at the same time, completed a refurbishment of its 75 bedrooms and Meadow Green Restaurant.

The new boardroom suite is a private meeting venue and can seat up to 12 people at the boardroom table that is adjacent to a lounge and bedroom.

The new room provides an alternative to the hotel’s conference and events facilities, which can accommodate more than 200 people.

All the rooms in the hotel have undergone a soft refurbishment for a lighter, brighter look while maintaining the lodge’s uniquely South African country manor feel. Each has its own balcony with view overlooking the lake. The hotel also offers 10 Luxury King rooms, eight Superior King rooms and six Superior Loft rooms.

The Meadow Green Restaurant has been renovated to make it more contemporary. The Lakeside Bar area and Gazebo have also been updated and slightly converted so that there are little meeting nooks for quick meetings over drinks.

Situated between Midrand and Pretoria in the South African province of Gauteng, African Pride Irene Country Lodge is 15 minutes from the Union Buildings in Pretoria and a half-hour drive from Sandton. It lies opposite the Irene Dairy Farm and is near the Rietvlei Nature Reserve.
