Bushmans Nek has been the July holiday of choice for my family ever since I can remember. Since growing up I don't go as often but our recent trip was everything I remembered. Beautiful setting, excellent amenities, lively one-cooked meals and friendly staff.

Wanted to visit Bushman's Nek Resort for lunch today but were stopped at the entrance and advised they would charge 8 of us, all hungry adults so not a small food bill, R400 just to get in. Won't be back here again. What a rip off!

Great location although access road is poor in places. Nice views Low occupancy meant that the place was a bit of a ghost town and services provided were sub-standard Service was poor particularly in restaurant and lounge area. Had to look for a waiter whenever you wanted a drink or bill. Overall the place needs some money spent on it... More

8 of us stayed here and we all could not believe what a wonderful place Bushmans Nek was. All of the rooms are very clean and spacious and they all had a fridge. My only criticism is the hotel room walls are very thin, and I could hear the people in the other room and the one night it did... More

My husband and I had a wonderful midweek break at Bushmans Neck. The views of the berg are magical and the facilities are awesome. I had a massage while my husband went fishing. We felt like it was home from home. The staff were friendly too.

We spent a week at the resort and had a good time overall, except for the extremely slow service and the lacking kitchen. I won't recommend to have a meal there, since the service is slow and the food & drinks are disappointing. Although they have a great view, activities and group hike to the little waterfall.

Brilliant holiday venue. Good customer care. Superb setting overlooking a lovely "natural" rock pool onto the mountains. A place to relax and unwind. With hikes, horse riding, put put amongst the activities on offer.

Lovely break. Ideal for hikers! Nature lovers and families. The stud farm offers horse riding and kids can bottle feed the small farm animals. For me as an adult this was a lovely experience so I believe for kids it must be extra special

We stayed at Bushmans Neck from 29 November - 5 December in a serviced, cosy, self-catering log cabin/chalet. The accommodation was comfortable and clean but the second bedroom did not have a cupboard and was very small which made it inconvenient for two adults. The two bathrooms (one with bath and shower, the second only with shower) were spotless and... More
