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.

A great place to retreat with the family in the mountains! Comfortable rooms, lovely grounds, stunning pool, magnificent view, plenty family activities and friendly staff.

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

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
