Air-cons,Fire place and TV would complement the properties.The panel heaters and the heated carpets are not helping the situation,especially in winter. Children really miss their cartoons on TV. Thanks.

Wow, this has the most wonderful setting in the mountains. The river lodge catered for our every need, especially warmth. It is was mid July, very very cold with frozen rivers and waterfalls, but the lodges have underfloor heating, wall heaters, electric blankets and a log fire place. The staff are helpful, efficient and very friendly. The lodge offers really... More

When we first received our quote for this beautiful hotel, we couldn't believe it. So naturally we were a bit skeptical, but it was truly great value for money. The River Lodges are roomy and homey and we were lucky to get one with a fireplace, which was great - the lodges without fireplaces do get cold though. Friendly and... More

With a setting in the mountains, how can you go wrong? Great value for money and helpful and efficient staff. We stayed in the River Lodges and even though they are rated 3 stars, it should be more. Can't complain at all about this beautiful hotel.

The self catering lodges are right on the river and you are... More

We were staying in Unit 1 at the 3 star Riverside Lodge (should be 5 star). The Unit was beautiful & clean. We received a warm welcome by reception and the gentlemen at the unit. He quickly transformed all the beds to double beds, light the fire. We started relaxing from our arrival until departure. We will definitely visit again.... More

1. Please consider putting a TV or a radio in the River lodge rooms. Coming from South Africa, we didn't have network, so that would have been good to stay in touch with the word. 2. We were charged R160 for parking which was never mentioned anywhere on the checklist. We had the money so we paid for it -... More

My girlfriend and I got engaged at Maliba in March this year. I couldn't have chosen a better venue for it. We spent the weekend pony riding, trekking the beautiful mountains, dunking ourselves in the super-refreshing (freezing!) rock pools, and generally chilling out. The food was absolutely stunning. We actually stayed in the very affordable and beautifully situated rondavels near... More

We stayed in the River Lodge self catering chalets about 1km from the lodge. The chalets have 4 bedrooms each but fitting into a chalet with 8 adults will be a bit of a squeeze if you have anything more than a day or two's luggage as cupboard space is very limited. The kitchens are very well stocked with cutlery,... More

Ideal get away from the hectic city life. Beautiful location in the mountains. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Food very good and accommodated our daughters vegetarian diet. Unit was large, clean and very comfortable. All utensils and also serviced daily. Will definitely return.
