Set in the mountains of Hogsback, this resort was exceptional. My colleagues and I were accommodated in a 2 bedroomed upstairs/downstairs chalet. The kitchen was well equipped and the state of the art creature comforts of home left nothing left to be desired. The conference facilities were exceptional for what SAYTC (South African Youth Tourism Council) needed and all the... More

What a lovely treat. Mavis was so kindly able to accommodate our last minute booking request and we got such lovely Xmas in July treats in our rooms. The wonderful staff and special Xmas in July dinner was super and all the staff were so pleasant and friendly and went a long way to warm us on the chilly winter... More

We had a wonderful chalet which could have slept six people. It was comfortable, clean and well stocked. We were there in June and it was cold. We used the gas fireplace and space heaters provided. It would have been nice to have electric blankets too. The meals provided were wonderful - the chefs have been there a long time... More

Stayed in a luxury self catering unit, maintenance poor, unit rundown, housekeeping poor, kitchen not well stocked, bedding had holes, only have single beds and the duvet fits exactly on the top of the bed. Also have to pay R100 per day for housekeeping if required. Gardens run down. Reception Staff friendly and helpful.

The cottages are very nice and comfortable (a bit cold in winter) and are worth a stay but the restaurant / bar area one can skip completely. The dinner & breakfast were extremely average and the service staff unfriendly. Go and eat in town rather.

We celebrated Christmas 2014 in one of the self catering chalets at Arminel Hotel and had a feast. The hotel could not accommodate us for the Christmas meal so we did our own thing for which the beautiful luxury chalet, surrounded by a beautiful garden provided the ideal setting and it ended up a memorable family occasion. The hotel staff... More

The self catering unit are large and spacious with beautiful views over the gardens. Central to the village its a great stop for any travellers. However the food is very average and I would rather not eat at the hotel.

It was my first stop on a 2 week country through South Africa. The hotel is set in a beautiful garden setting with a few steps to the entrance - a good old fashioned country hotel. On arrival I was met and booked in very efficiently but not welcoming. My room was adequate with a bath and shower separate -... More

And we had ice bucket challenge, kids making snowman etc.Small excursion to the 39 steps waterfall and the little craft shops. We went... More

This hotel is more like a 2 star than 3. While the setting and gardens are pretty the rooms are in dire need of an upgrade. The bathroom was shabby, old and tired. The food, off a set menu, made me feel like I was back at boarding school. The staff were friendly enough but did not go out of... More
