                I was extremely satisfied with the accommodation . It was very neat and cosy. The breakfast was sumptuous. The pricing varied from provider to provider. I hope that this can be made affordable especially if you travelling with family. We were just disappointed that the pool table was not working. Overall it was a great stay and I will recommend to friends and family.

                The resort is well positioned as a base to explore the Berg. Facilities are basic and generally neat and clean. Restaurant menu is limited - pizza, ribs, salad etc. but the food was really good and reasonably priced. The golf course was in fair condition - bunkers require improvement and the greens should be cut more regularly. Staff were friendly.
