Stayed in unit 73b and was a great apartment for a short stay. A secure venue with security and lovely gardens in the Piesang Valley. We were 4 people and found the place safe and neat with all amenities needed. Nice view from the balcony.

Firstly, I want to point out that we were pleasantly surprised with nicely modernised and well appointed flats. Everything was clean and functional. However, there were some things that surprised us and which weren’t clear on the website. Firstly, the restaurant closed last year and hasn’t reopened, so the only amenities are the pool and games room. Sadly, when we were there the games room was being set up for a meeting and it wasn’t a poolside kind of day, so that little extra was taken away without warning. Being in a one bed apartment meant there wasn’t exactly lots of space and the sofa wasn’t the most comfy to sit on. (Side note- the sofa bed might be great for young kids but definitely not suitable for adults). The second thing the website doesn’t specify, wifi is only available in the area by reception/games room. There is no wifi in the units and mobile signal can be patchy. The final thing I wanted to say. Pearl, at the main gate, was a joy to interact with. However, some of the team at main reception were a bit abrupt in their manner, not exactly the welcoming feeling.

If a relaxing time with family is what you enjoy then Castleton is for you and yours. We stayed in 2 beautiful apartments in a secure estate. Lots to keep the kids busy and the adults relaxing. The only down side was that in the kitchen there was no plastic containers so do take those with for ur preps and storage needs. Also there is only a weber braai so u can only use charcoal and no other braai facilities available which was not ideal but it worked, other than that it was an enjoyable relaxing weekend.

Our double floor top unit with 3 bedrooms and three bathrooms overlooking the Piesang Valley was such a pleasant surprise. Newly refurbished to a high standard it really was a pleasure to spend a midweek break here. The bed linen is excellent, the towels new and fluffy, and the views from the floor to ceiling windows add to the enjoyment. The unit was spacious and the kitchen well equipped. The top patio is a little cramped but there is a second patio accessible from the bedroom floor. Castleton is a large development with expansive gardens but privacy has been ensured. The staff were helpful and welcoming and we would have no hesitation in returning.

This stay ticked most of our boxes and the niggles we had were small ones. We chose a one bedroom, ground floor apartment, rather than having to trek up 3 flights of stairs to get one with a view. The one downside to this, which we were told about on our arrival, was that the geysers were situated on the top floor and therefore the hot water tap would take a while before it actually produced hot water. Well, long story short, we had tepid water as no amount of flow produced the desired heat we were expecting! The unit itself was so convenient and spacious and we appreciated anew the feel of staying in a purpose-built unit as opposed to a cramped garage conversion! Having said that, the planning of the kitchen storage space left a lot to be desired, as the upper shelves were inaccessible and there was no place for food storage, other than the fridge. The overall security at the complex was good, the guards at the gate, efficient and undercover parking was available for our car. We enjoyed seeing the guinea fowl and rabbits and enjoyed the off- peak quietness of the resort. No internet access was inconvenient and a bit of a shock for us, but we made a plan.

My husband and I had a very comfortable stay at Castleton Resort (booked through the Holiday Club). Our studio unit was well appointed and in impeccable condition, and the view from our unit balcony was lovely (note, not all units have the same view - this is a large resort where units face different ways, and some are on ground floor which would possibly not have views). We did not use the swimming pool, putt-putt or other amenities, so cannot comment on these, although they looked fine. The staff members we encountered were friendly and hospitable.

We have stayed here a few times previously and it was very average. However, this visit was such a pleasant surprise - we arrived to a beautifully renovated unit that was spotlessly clean, comfortable and well equipped. We really enjoyed our stay. The kitchen is fantastic though we didn't use it much (gas stove is a bonus; we love cooking on gas) and there is a Weber braai on the patio. It was chilly at night so we made use of the oil heater and extra blanket, choosing to watch a bit of Telly from the comfort of the bed (TV is huge!). The lounge has a TV as well. We were on a R&R mission and spent time with dear friends close by, so we chilled a lot and didn't make use of the resort's facilities - but everything looked pristine from afar. Next time we visit the area, we won't hesitate to stay here again and spend more time enjoying the resort!
