Must visit mountain resort
Had the best long weekend but can easily stay for a week as there is so much to do. Entertainment and activities fill your day. Cleanliness was excellent and staff sanitise all sports equipment. Rooms well cleaned and sanitised. Staff wear masks. Staff are so friendly and helpful, they do the hospitalty industry proud. Just be aware of a gravel road you need to travel on but it is worth it!

Great for family
The staff were wonderful and the food outstanding. The pool area as well as the entertainment was great. A real disappointment with the log cabin rooms, they were so dirty and need an upgrade ASAP and there is a huge problem with the flies from the stables.

Recommended for hikers
The service was excellent! The room was a bit messy, I don’t think they managed to clean up The previous guests mess properly. The towels were still a bit wet and the toilet was unflushed and left up. However, the food and view was incredible. The bed was comfortable and I loved the privacy of our hotel room. The staff made it all worth while and the family vibes were apparent throughout our stay! We were able to wake up at 5am and go to Bushmans Nek game reserve to start our hike- it’s very close to the hotel! There is also a little snack shop which allows you to buy some snacks for your hike! They also provide a map at reception of trails available!
