We stayed only for one night and then moved on to our next destination. We should have stayed more than one night because of the nice location and the amazing sights of nature. We will be back in December.

The cottage is beautifully located in peaceful and picturesque surroundings. It is secluded and offers total peace and relaxation. The cottage itself is equipped with everything you might need and is as cozy as can be. Will definitely recommend staying here and will surely visit...More

Excellent but instructions to find the cottages could be improved. e. g. The distance from the Magoebaskloof Hotel to the turn off is 6km and the distance from the turn off to the cottages is 2.1km. xxx

We stayed for 5 nights and was sorry to leave. We stayed in Trogon cottage, the smaller cottage high up in the mountain and it was one of the nicest cottages we've ever stayed in. Perfectly located with mountain and forest views from every window....More

Excellent location, in the Mountains. The cottage is very neat and cozy. Perfect for a secluded getaway. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good for couples or the whole family. Nice hiking trails with excellent views.
