We stayed 2 nights at the cavern. All staff are very helpful and friendly: they provided an extra horse riding so we also could join. You can choose between different activities to do, there is nog pressure, you are free to do what you want. Atmosphere is very relaxed. Environment is just wauw!
It was my second time. First was with my family, now with my bestie. What really stands out is the location, food and service. It’s a beautiful and easy drive from Johannesburg. The organised hikes are very nice and a good way to make new contacts. I would have done hikes myself, but was limited because of a knee injury.
Apart from the booking dispute at arrival which resulted our stay being more expensive, we thoroughly enjoyed the full board menu options, the friendly staff, the perfect room and all the amenities on offer. We really really enjoyed it. A lot. We specifically liked the fireplace and heated floors in our room. The resort even had uninterrupted electricity during the time of unprecedented series of loadshedding.
We enjoyed the stay and the staff were very friendly, Mondli took good care of us and I preferred his service when he had to fill in for the drinks stewardess. The food is of good standard and quality. The breakfast combinations were well varied. The lunch buffet was very tasty, considering buffets can be bland - well done to the chef and kitchen team. The dinner time was 'pressured'. It almost felt like we we being rushed to order and finish our meal. The main meal portion was 'small' but we were not left wanting more. Again, very tasty meals and well done to the chef and kitchen team.
A super resort- with many well maintained beautiful trails for hiking, a few dams for trout fishing, (perhaps look at stocking them) great food, fantastic staff & service- space for the whole family to do their own thing, tennis, croquet, a beautiful spa. Highly recommend for a multi-generational gathering providing enough independence for everyone & many nooks & crannies to relax or gather together. Meal times were a pleasure, great food, easy hours & friendly staff. The staff choir was awesome. Facilities were well maintained. Gorgeous with the aloes out. Loved it 🤗
What a beautiful place!!! The rooms were wonderful and the food was delicious. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We went on one organized hike to Sugar Loaf mountain. After being in safari mode, it was challenging but well worth it. The views from the top were amazing. We did a couple other hikes on our own. The place is so beautiful. We visited the spa after our hiking. The massages and other treatments were amazing. And the setting in the forest was so peaceful.
We had a fantastic long weekend at the Cavern. Our bedroom was beautiful and newly decorated. The bed was extremely comfy. Food at the Cavern is renowned and didn’t disappoint. We loved the guided walks daily and spending time in the tranquil surroundings. The spa treatments were superb. Overall a fantastic weekend. We’ll be back!
Everything was perfect. Walk, room, food. The place is situated in mountain with beautiful views and a lot of path to explore. For a solo traveller, I was feeling like home thanks to people working there. Thanks a lot guys.
The Cavern was a disappointment to us. It is built on a steep hill facing the valley so you only see the views when on a walk. The walks are poorly signposted. The food was poor. All three days we were there they were cutting down a huge tree right in front of our room with sawdust falling on our little deck; not to mention the noise. The hotel was not full and they could easily have allocated us another room.
One of our best 2 night honeymoon destinations. What an absolute pleasure staying at The Cavern! Wow! Amazing and friendly staff and service! Amazing rooms with stunning views! Best served meals 3 times daily... Most beautiful surroundings and nature scenes and animals! Tranquil, relaxing and calming spa sessions and packages. Really nice cavern styled bar area and underground wine cellar! Would most definitely recommend and return some day! Worth every penny, thank you The Cavern and staff! ❤️🧡💛
