Midlands is so tranquil and serene. A fire crackling at night while the mist rolls in, family sitting around a board game...it was perfect! During the day, resort offered tons to do but as usual exploring was our choice and we had so many options available! It was fabulous time away, definitely will visit again.

The staff go out of their way to make sure that you have everything that you need or want. Beautiful views, a roaring fire place and luxurious bedding mean that you have everything that you need for those cold winter days and nights. Saddle and trout is well situated for those wanting to explore the Midlands Meander. Perfect place for... More

My wife and I decided on a last minute basis to take a mid year break in the midlands during school holidays .

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

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
