The accommodation was picturesque . River crossing was very clean and well furnished. It wasn’t difficult to find even though it goes off road for a small distance but still easy to find even the dark. River crossing has beautiful views all around. The deep tub was definitely one of my favourites. Ryan, was a perfect host, checked in with me before we arrived, very helpful and informative about what’s happening close by. Overall and excellent stay. Will definitely visits again

This was my second visit after an absence of a number of years and it was being managed by new people. However I found the standards in the self-catering villa to be just as high and the new managers very friendly and most helpful. If self-catering in the Drakensberg I would always head for River Crossing. It's very peaceful, conveniently located, has a pleasant pool and the views from the villa balcony are stunning all day long. Only one villa has air con so if that's important for you then make sure you book the right one.

The host Ryan was in touch when the day of check-in came, he was respectful and also mentioned the gravel road when coming to the place which was helpful.

The stay was great even though it was just for one night and he warmed up the room as we were coming in the evening, and the Burgs get cold, we appreciated that thought.

The place was clean and there was a lot of space, the beds had electric blankets which was convenient due to the cold, and the bathroom facility was in order.

my overall it was a comfortable night's stay and we enjoyed it !

Thank you Ryan

Our hosts were extremely helpful in every way. The chalet was very lacking in equipment. Gas stove only worked on high and the oven did not really heat up. Only basic crockery. Chalet needs a good clean, especially the shower. Beds were comfortable and clean. Needs good braai outside chalets and an overhang is needed for bad weather or extreme sun. Lovely farm feel and great views. It’s near many attractions and restaurants. It’s pricy for what it offers.

We enjoyed our stay. The chalets are clean and tidy, although an update here and there would be a great bonus.
The play area/ swimming pool needs a serious revamp and some organising.
There is not a lot for kids to do on the property, a trampoline and jungle gym would be a good start. i know there is a lot of other stuff around and in the berg to do but sometimes you just want to spend a quiet day.

Very nice trip down memory lane. Enjoyed the location, stay and host. Villa fulfilled all expectations. and all amenities were to our satisfaction. Centrally located and all amenities in the area was easily accessible and reachable. Loved the stay and will definitely visit again. Loved Juna (the dog) as well.

The warmth and friendliness of the managers couple made us felt very welcome and at home. The gorgeous view, fully equipped and well maintained unit and property was value for money. Definitely recommendable.

Fantastic place to stay. Our hosts, Tim & Linda, went out of their way to accommodate us. The views are really superb, and we were lucky enough to witness snow on the Berg. The Games - room & swimming pool add to all the amenities. We will be back !!
