Above average”

The chalet is lovely and well equipped and the views amazing but there is little offered on the premises.We happened upon the fishing dams and short forest walk on the last of our 4 days spent there.A staff member spent 5 minutes with us at the chalet on arrival but gave no information of what was available at the lodge or surrounds.The pool area is lovely but no lounger cushions or towels available.No wi fi. For what you pay and what you get,it is not worth it.

quiet,private,stunning view”

silence, stunning view from private balcony, decor in room

it was a wonderful stay. close to town so was easy to escape for a overnight getaway. loved the view from the balcony and the staff very friendly and helpful. bringing your own food was not a problem as the chalet had everything we needed to store and prepare. each chalet has a private lapa area where you could enjoy a romantic bonfire or braai under the stars. we didnt get to use the lapa as it was rather cool outside... next time. cannot wait to escape again to this special resort.

Verblijf in natuur, erg afgelegen, (te) rustig”

Grote kamer, netjes

We hadden een heel ander beeld bij deze lodge. Er was geen restaurant itt de info. op uw site. We kwamen op zondag rond 19.00 uur aan en er was geen mogelijkheid meer om te eten. Veel restaurants zijn op zondag gesloten en de supermarkten waren reeds dicht. Nadat we waren ingecheckt verliet het personeel het terrein en hadden we het gevoel helemaal alleen te zijn, dit voelde niet veilig. Ook 's ochtends troffen we tot ca. 10.30 uur niemand aan bij de receptie. Personeel was erg vriendelijk en behulpzaam.
