i had a supurb stay at Bushmans Nek - will reccomend - just one suggestion - breakfast should be included in the price for the hotel staying guests - this should ideally be a buffet breakfast - dinner should be on an add on basis - also buffet - everthing else - great - especially the staff.

Hubby and I stayed in the hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. When we arrived we were given a welcome drink and popcorn. It was a cold day so the fire place was going which was very inviting. The room was comfy but very cold. The food was lovely and prices reasonable.... More

It was a beautiful setting between valleys and mountains. The accomodation itself was not that great. Comfortable beds but run down rooms with a musty smell to them. We had no warm water to shower with! When we called the reception we were told to run the taps for 20 minutes to get warm water! This when the whole north... More

Didn't know what to expect after driving for 3/4 of an hour down a dirt track, but worth the drive. This place is like heaven on earth. The rooms are fantastic and extremely clean. The staff were excellent very friendly and helpful. The food we just couldn't fault. Beautiful grounds and scenery all around.

Very nice resort, beautiful pool and surroundings. But we were disappointed as our assigned room was next to the servants headquarters, with no fire place or no view. They did not allow us to move to another room, and when we booked the room on hotels.com there were no options for other rooms. It was a good sized room though.... More
