This was a peaceful retreat, the type of holiday where you are content to sit and do nothing, all service was exemplary and the food was absolutely amazing (great vegetarian options) I would not hesitate to go back again

very nice location, close to Johannesburg but feels remote. the scenery is beautiful. Service is very good all around but the restaurant and the pool area definitely needs improvement to feel more cosy and comfortable in order to meet our expectations for a boutique hotel priced at this level

The room was amazing and well kept with the most beautiful view for sunsets. Breakfast and dinner was amazing and prepared as requested. The staff is very friendly, welcoming and responds quickly and without any hesitation.

It’s only 20km away from FOURWAYS and a pleasant getaway for myself and my partner. Great service, views and food … the cabins are modern yet still manages to make you feel you in the bushveld. Will undoubtedly visit again for a longer stay

What an amazing experience at the Cradle Boutique Hotel. Sublime landscapes. Stunning well kept rooms. Exceptional and welcoming staff. For anyone in Gauteng who wants a mini breakaway... Look no further than Cradle Boutique Hotel! The restaurant is magnificent. The hotel is peaceful and if you are lucky, you'll see some wildlife passing tight by your patio.
