When you view the pictures on the website you really get caught by the apparent ambience, but the arrival reveals something completely different. Management do not know how to handle guests. they treat you like an intruder. The management of the restaurant and "tuck shop" facility however duly made up for the shortcomings of the rest. They tried their utmost... More

The baths is 18km south of the rural town of Citrusdal and is at the end of a newly tarred road. This is a remote location, due to the position of the hot springs. We were in a chalet for 4 people, which was clean but very basic - don't expect TV or wi-fi! The two main pools were very... More

Our visit to the baths was like we walked through a time machine to pre 1996 Upon arrival we were met by an unfriendly en unwelcome face of a person I can only assume was the manager.......spoke to us like he was unhappy to have us visiting a lack of respect like we were talked down to. That same evening... More

The Baths is situated in a beutiful and quiet kloof with plenty of hot water. Guests of all races, have come here over the years to lap up the peace and tranquility of the resort and the area. We have implemented rules to ensure this. Guests who break these rules and spoil it for others, will never feel welcome here.... More

I have just visited Citrusdal Baths on a 5xday special (R1500 for two persons from Sunday to Friday) The Spa is a great place to bring on Summer as it is usually warm to hot in October. The location has everything to offer, restaurant, barbecue (own) self catering (fridge stove) shop (for necessities) not to mention HOT SPA POOL/COLD WATER... More

One’s initial perception is that the resort is quite small, but this is a lovely little private resort. We stayed in nr 31 Olsen building - the unit has a well equipped kitchen, small seating area with fireplace, double bed and bathroom. There is a balcony at the front of the building and at the back a private bath and... More

Our yearly Holiday turn into the worst nightmare! Better service and more interference from the Management team is really needed in order for The Baths to get onto standard again. Will visit again, but only in a few years.....

I hadn't been back here since I was child, and loved the combination of the resort facilities, as well as being able to stay in a cottage (called an "outside chalet" on the website) 5 minutes drive from the actual resort. We stayed in one of the "outside chales, called "Jimmy". It was great. Super views over the valley, very... More

This was our 7th trip to the Baths. We had an awesome time of rest and relaxation as usual! We stayed in Olsen House for the 3rd time - a real treat. The room is neat and well equipped. A beautiful back garden with built-in braai and private bath make this a special place for couples. The water is amazingly... More

We have been going to the baths since I was a very young child. We love it because of the peace and quiet. Sadly we have noticed a trend. The campsites are still amazing but the accommodation is not what it was. The units are not clean! In Feb we were moved to an entire new unit after the one... More
