My wife and I decided on a last minute basis to take a mid year break in the midlands during school holidays . I viewed the latest comments on trip advisor about midlands saddle and trout- to say the least we arrived extremely concerned as to what we would find. Well... it is a very long time since I have...

This was the fifth time in the last three years that we booked at this resort and my most compelling reason was that it was clean and well equipped. The perfect place for our young children. This time however i was most disappointed. Firstly the 'clean' bath sheets left for us to use had long black human hair on it.... More

We stayed at Midlands Saddle & Trout for 3 days and what an absolutely great resort! Upon arrival the staff were very friendly to the point where we felt at home! The Chalets were clean and tidy. Even though the kitchens in the units are great the restaurant is one place that should not be missed when visiting this resort,... More

We have just returned from our second visit , the first in June two years ago was lovely, there weren't many guests and the staff were friendly and couldn't do enough to ensure that we had a good holiday, this time however we were met with total disinterest, at the meet and greet, at which there was only us and...

This is a good and very convenient resort in the Natal Midlands. Our recent visit in July was our 4th. The resort has plenty of activities for all ages. Pony rides, horse rides,putt putt, lawn bowls and golf. Chalets are spacious but always seem to need a little maintenance. Our patio banister was rotten and a safety risk. Resort staff... More

Spent a long weekend there with friends. Had an awesome time. Units are clean and spacious, and has everything one requires for a self catering outing. Resort has a large pool and a games room, although the pool tables were not working properly. The only down-side to this resort is the flies...the large number of horses could be the reason... More

We enjoyed a 5 day midweek break in number 37, a 3 bedroomed unit with two bathrooms. The unit was spacious and well equipped with separate kitchen, dining room, lounge and TV room. It had a plant filled central glass atrium which was a little overgrown but with a little TLC could be an attractive feature of the unit. it... More

We spent 3 days at the resort and i have to agree with some of the reviewers that the place requires some TLC. That said, all the accomodation is clean, spacious, and extremely well equiped - the unit also get serviced every day. There is DSTV and a large pool, with all the required basics in the kitchen, which makes... More

While the chalets are a bit tired, they are clean. All staff were very friendly. Nice big pool. BBQ at each chalet, we had an amazing view. A great, well priced base to explore. Always like a self catering unit as it gives flexibility & the kitchen was well equipped.
