Hotel was not suitable for family accommodation and when we cancelled our stay after one night we had to forfeit our deposit despite the hotel being empty. Rooms had a musty smell and hotel lacked appeal. Restaurant evening meal was satisfactory but breakfast disappointing We went for white water rafting which was not operational due to low water levels however... More

Four of us went to the restaurant for lunch and we were very disappointed. The staff were friendly, however after waiting for 15min to get drinks and 40mins for our food, we were already a bit annoyed. Two of us ordered burgers, which were ok. One ordered the steak, egg and chips which wasn't cooked as asked for. And the... More

They emphasise the great venison burger as being the best in the land. So we decided to try it. Service was quick and professional and we all (party of 3) ordered the venison burger. We certainly were not disappointed! A burger which can be picked up in both hands and really enjoyed, not like some restaurants, particularly hotel ones who... More

We stopped for a quick drink and snack. We liked the informal decor and surroundings. We had the Rib and Rooster basket, chips and milkshakes. The food is not bad, but the service is slow. Worth to visit if you do a day trip around the gorge

There was lovely reception @this lovely establishment. There's a long list of things to do on this side of the world! We enjoyed a couple of activities at the Wild 5 adventures - trial walks, walks over the suspended bridge, site viewing. My partner couldn't convince me enough to go on the Wild swing! Continued on to a near by... More

Bed and breakfast were wonderful. However, they gave us two single beds which was somewhat uncomfortable. Dinner at the restaurant was acceptable. The main attraction of course was the Big Swing, which was without a doubt impeccable! I'd definitely love to go back to the gorge and experience the white river rafting and other activities.

Probably the most pleasant stay of our trip. Although we had no water on the last morning due to an Eskom problem that came without any warning, the staff handled the problem very well by bringing coffee and tea from the kitchen, buckets of hot water for washing and flushing, all without asking for and before we could order. The... More

It's an average place, reflective of it's 3* status. Bathrooms urgently need to be updated. Room was neat and tidy but not what you expect when you ask for their best suite. Just a tip to the hotel owners, their towels need to be replaced and go with white, it adds a touch of luxury and class to any place.... More

If you like a country hotel, a little old fashioned, but clean and comfortable, then this is a good place to be. Five star it isn't, but when the staff go out of their way to be friendly and efficient, this makes up for a lot. If you look hard, there are things that need to be brushed up or... More
