We are from Gauteng and we spent 3 nights at the MyPond Hotel in December 2009 - from the booking online (which was completely hassle-free and convenient) to the last evening, was absolute bliss. The room we stayed in was comfortable, clean, air-conditioned and had all the amenities you'd expect from a four star hotel and more. Every one of the staff members were friendly, helpful and professional and they went out of their way to deliver excellent service. The atmosphere is wonderfully peaceful and we were relaxed from the minute we arrived, until we had to leave ;-( Early buttermilk and pecan breakfast pancakes were heavenly outside in the peaceful morning hour next to the tranquil silent river. Lunch and Dinner was just as exquisite. What made us enjoy the trip even

I can highly recommend MY POND HOTEL. We stayed here twice in July, on the way to and back from the Transkei. The rooms are stylish, not stuffy as is often the case with small town hotels, and are fully equipped with all we could need and more. Hugo and his staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We stayed in the adjoining family suite on the first occasion, which was more than spacious, and had a very comfortable double bed sleeper couch for our child. The food in the Etare restaurant was unique and delicious, and extremely well prices. On our second stay we had to do an (very) early departure - 4am. This was no hassle at all for the night watchman who got up to see us off. All in all a fantastic stay, highly recommended, and we will surely be back. Rosanne
