Our self-catering chalet was well equipped and properly cleaned. It was rather comfortable. We had a panoramic view of the KZN midlands from the patio and the bedroom. Some of the furniture in our unit was already quite worn, the table surfaces damaged and the couch showed its age. Paint was peeling from the window frames and -sills in the... More

The best staff were actually in the stables. Petros was exceptional.it was so nice speaking to him and learning about the horses on the property. The units itself was so spacious and... More

We've been there for family holidays and have been impressed in the past. Unfortunately the buildings have been BADLY maintained and housekeeping lost the key to chalet during our stay which is a major safety concern. There was also MOULD in the shower. I would recommend other better maintained places in the area as it is stunning.

It is very cold during the winter and I would love to visit when it gets warm in the Summer. The staff are friendly. It was my first horse ride ever and the handler there was... More

having a timeshare during the Easter period at this wonderful resort is great. Having visited and stayed at the Midlands Saddle and Trout so many times , this place is for unwinding and total relaxation. Just over one and half hours from Durban, very convenient and our stay as a family was excellent.

The chalets are comfortable and spacious with everything you need. A fantastic get away for a relaxing weekend! We fished the dams and there was no sign of any trout, we saw a few small bass in the dams but nothing too exciting!

Weekend was relaxing with lots of entertainment for the kids and plenty of down time for the adults. Rooms were exceptional with attention to detail. Spa on site was a pleasant experience. In-house dining experience was exceptional.
