Enjoyed the heated swimming pool, walks around the lake, wild-bird life. Nice balcony with views. reception staff accommodating and polite. It was clean, and serviced weekly for linen changes. The apartment had several... More

Stayed in a two bedroom terrace. Ask for north facing balcony for full sun in winter. Resort is older but decor and comfort of beds is good. Our unit was equipped with all we needed. Lots of facilities for swimmers and tennis players but also lake and bush walks. Breakfast was included in our price and it was good

I was excited to get away for my weekend anniversary so we bought a coupon deal from Scoopon, booked the Rafferty's resort. The location was beautiful and apartment from the great food and excellent service received at the All Lago restaurant, everything was less than mediocre. The free breakfast from the coupon is continental, but the hot breakfast can be... More

I stayed in one of the standard 2 bedroom terrace units as part of a large group on a work trip. Rooms were large, clean and well furnished. The bed was very comfortable, with a good nights sleep easy to get. Staff were always friendly and helpful. Kitchen facilities were more than adequate and if you did not want to... More

We are a group of 12 mature, somewhat discerning, couples who take an annual weekend away. We had noted the negative reviews on this website and were unsure as to what to expect. We have just returned from Rafferties and were thrilled by our experience. Rafferties went out of their way to accommodate the needs of our group. The service,... More

6 of us stayed here in a 3 bedroom townhouse in early May. As we drove in, the area looked lovely, right on the lake! Once we entered our accommodation it went downhill pretty quickly. The place clearly needed a make over which could include fresh paint, new carpet (stained), new flyscreens, updated cutlery/crockery, new pieces of furniture etc. We... More

I booked my family into the resort recently for 4 nights for a bit of rest and relaxation after looking at the resort on the web site. We opted for a loft cabin. Unfortunately the cabin was not like the one depicted on the web site. The cabin was very clean although there was a dead cockroach in the kitchen... More

We stayed in a loft villa which was very spacious, roomy and had a bathroom and an extra shower/toilet off the laundry ideal for a family with teens. Improvements could be some TLC, a lick of paint on the courtyard area, clean down the verandah table and brush out the leaves etc. and fix the toilet which sounded like a... More
