Sadly we couldn't book the whole of Wetlands as some rooms were already booked for the Classical music Weekend. Out of our group of 23 mountain cyclists (with a love of classical music) 11 of us stayed at Wetlands. Everyone loved it as it is beautifully decorated and surrounded by lush gardens. All 23 of us met up for meals... More

We booked two shed rooms and one bedroom. My parents and my sister stayed in the shed rooms; my husband and I in bedroom. Shed rooms are nice and big and very, very beautiful. The owner has excellent taste in furniture and we absolutely loved everything there. It was also nice of them to serve complimentary sherry wine as it... More

We have been before, and because we know the quality of the place, we will keep returning. For us it is a good stop over either to or from KZN to Kruger area. Next time, I would certainly like to stay longer as the birding in the area is world renowned. The sheds are brilliant, and very well appointed. They... More

We have stayed here previously as a couple and wanted to return with our 3 girls one day. We finally got it right recently and were allocated the family cottage. What a gem with 2 full bathrooms, large bedrooms with a view of the dam and a large living room and well-equipped kitchen. Stunning gardens, great breakfast and very accomodating... More

Wetlands is absolutely beautiful and the breakfast was amazing! My parents stayed at wetlands and I am so upset that we stayed at a really terrible and dirty Hill View country cottages down the road. If you ever travel to Wakkerstroom, do yourself a favour and stay at Wetlands.

What a gem of a place - beautiful rooms, we stayed in one of the three sheds - beautifully decorated. You can self cater, this particular shed had a well equipped kitchen with stove and oven and an outside braai. Lovely fireplaces inside for those cold winters with complimentary sherry. Check rooms as they don't all have braai facilities or... More

I have traveled the world and it is not often that the real things outshines the photos. I can comfortably say that my visit to Wetlands turned out to be more than I expected. The accommodation is superb, comfortable and very clean. The hosts Rita and Philip are true hosts and love what they do. Our stay was perfect in... More

This is really a great place to stay. The hosts are very friendly and go the extra mile to make every visitor feel welcome and special. The rooms are beautiful and you have everything you need. The fireplace in the room is really special. Lot of small things that make it a memorable stay. Sherry at the fireplace, candles in... More

This was definitely one of our most memorable stays in South Africa. Jill is an excellent host (one of the best we've ever experienced) and went out of her way to make us feel welcome and special. It was my husband's birthday as well as my friend's birthday and Jill made sure that they were celebrated with flowers, bubbly, nougat... More
