RUSTIC,AND FUNCTIONAL ,NICE HIKING TRIALS,Stayed over for 1 night stay ,Gas cylinder for the heater needs to be paid for (R200)not included in the accommodation fees ,No fire place ,cold at night in winter,,carry extra blankets and some back up lights because of load shedding, also all appliances are electrical ,maybe carry a gas stove etc.
The place was cosy and the people very friendly -enjoyed the game room with our kids - load sheading was a bit ruff but not their fault - maybe some battery or rechargeable light for when the power is out
Very nice stay in our cabin with a view from lou ge stoep and bed room. Everything was clean and available. Even walking trails. The area has also been an eye opener as this was the firat time for me.
I suggest to put electric blanket on the beds. The braai needs to be in front of the cabin and not at the back door with smaller braai with a braai grid that fit the braai. Very nice place needs some attention. The double bed is to small for 2 people.
The place was incredible ! Right by the water and staff were very friendly. Peaceful setting with a game room and amenities not to far from Eland Valley. The dam view was amazing and to top it all off we had a dog visiting us which made it feel more like home!
I would like to see more encouragement to attract more birdlife, as there are lovely dams for water birds. Otherwise, no complaints, only the bed was not too comfortable. Staff was lovely, and helpful, location lovely. Especially the maintenance chap was helpful and accomodating.
This is a wonderful quiet location. Ample basic facilities and a springboard to local tourist attractions. The Dam is a focal point for bird life. Very close to the Drakensberg and lots of hiking as well as the Drakensberg Gardens Resort
Unfortunately it rained for most of our stay at the Resort so we were not able to hike or use some of the amenities, but it was still a nice break and was very peaceful. The rain had damaged the TV connections so we had no signal for the 3 days, but the free WiFi worked well and was very necessary as we had no phone signal.
It is very peaceful and beautiful surroundings in nature. The braai areas and parking needs attention. Back-up generators to service all accommodation when power is down. Gas stove will be helpful when power is down for making coffee/cook a meal, specially when it is raining.
We fell in love with this place. The cabins were so well thought out, with everything you need. The location is spectacular. Very friendly and accommodating staff. The perfect spot for remote work (request a cabin in the wifi zone), for a romantic holiday, or to stay with friends and family. We'll be back!
