Jeff and Alice gave us such a warm welcome we felt at home instantly! We stayed in the Chelsea cottage. The cottage was very well kept and had everything we needed for a comfortable weekend stay. The tranquility of the sound of the river made for a very restful sleep. The Jacuzzi style bathtub was an added bonus and very relaxing. Absolutely worth it!

Absolutely spotless with the most amazing views, definitely needs to be modernized , would have loved to have comfy chairs on the deck to be able to appreciate the setting and the bedroom pillows need to be replaced , sadly not a tranquil setting as the noise from the road was loud being mainly trucks , but as i mentioned the unit and gardens was immaculate and the unit had everything you needed with a Jacuzzi bath to soak up the view .

Otters Den was simply lovely, from the moment we got there and met Jeff and Alice who were warm and welcoming. The accommodation was neat, clean and inviting. The setting of Otters Den on the Lions River is simply stunning. The views are gorgeous with a pathway to the river below and gorgeous boulders and rocks to sit on and relax or enjoy a picnic. The silence was refreshing. We could have easily stayed another couple of nights if time would have allowed. This was fantastic and we will certainly visit again.

We had such an awesome time at Otters Den. Jeff and Alice are absolutely lovely and makes you feel very welcome. Elizabeth made sure our units had clean towels and bedding daily and if we were out for the evening she made sure the electric heater was on to warm the room. The units are equipped with everything you need for a weekend away (or longer) ; electric heaters, stove (no oven), spa bath, big shower, electric blankets, coffee, tea, yummy cookies and a braai. Of course there is also the stunning view. Would love to come back again. God bless!

After a really bad experience at the knoll guest farm , last minute we phoned up otters Den on Christmas Day to see if they where able to accommodate us they had a unit ready for us when we arrived and slithers service was amazing. The unit was fully equipped with everything you would need. And the views where beautiful. I would defiantly recommend Otters Den for a relaxing getaway.
