This is our first time at Pine Lake Lifestyle Restort. The venue is stunning - looks over Longmere Dam and is very tranquil. Around the chalets there are well kept manicured lawns perfect for leisurely walks. The chalets are incedibly well equipped, with microwave, oven and stove, as well as a wide variety of cutlery and crockery. Each chalet has three bedrooms, two with en suite bathrooms. The main bedroom has a stunning view over the dam. The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful. Everyone greets you when they see you, and they're at your beck and call for anything you need. Two downsides are that there is no Resturant on site, and the convenience store has vey limited variety.
We spent three nights at the Pine Lake Inn. The hotel has recently undergone a complete refurbishment and a wing of brand new rooms has been added. The decor is superb with a truly African feel. Great care has been taken to get it just right. Service from the staff was attentive and very friendly. For a getaway with easy access to Kruger National Park and Blyde River Canyon this is an ideal hotel set in beautiful surroundings. The restaurant serves a buffet / carvery and is completely adequate - we even had a crocodile stew on one evening.
Booked on line to stay here and had very low expectations as the cost for two 3 bedded rooms worked out at around £60 per night. We were all thrilled as we arrived to see the beautiful well tended grounds being graced by peacocks in their dozens. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious with a wonderful view of the golf course. We spent 3 nights here and enjoyed every one. It was a perfect spot to explore the surrounding areas. took in the panoramic route, visited elephant sanctuary, animal rehab, white water rafting, quad biking and zip wiring. I would agree that the food was not Michellin star but it was perfectly adequate. Breakfast was varied with lots of choice of hot/ cold foods. Staff were very friendly and helpful. three years on my kids can't wait to go back!
Went away for the weekend. The Hotel rooms have been re-done, what a nice surprise! Went to the Kruger National Park, just 30min drive from Hotel. Had a great day in the park, saw a lot of animals, and the weather was great! Will definetely go there again!
