We stayed at Blue Cottages for a couple of nights "down time" before flying back to the UK. It was delightful and the owners were accommodating and lovely - the kids were a little bored as there is not a lot to do there. However, they were given bowls to play with and a football. The pool was a welcome... More

Very pleasant stop if one looks to break trip from Joburg to KNP. Good value for money. Could do with another food option on menu but food was good and there is also a restaurant nearby. Clean rooms,nice gardens and good breakfast when you leave. Good value for the price

I arrived with guests for overnight at Blue Cottages. My guests could not stop the electricity from tripping continuously every time they attempted to boil the kettle. The units were freezing, and no provision was made for heating. My unit was poorly maintained. The toilet was leaking all over the floor and also the basin! Puddles of water all over... More

We stayed overnight on our way to Kruger Park. The hospitality of Paul and his wife was excellent but I found the actual accommodation to be slightly dilapidated. Unfortunately, the bed was uncomfortable. However, the property itself is lovely and the two Jack Russell's, Fliekie and Heidi, were a delight. I would recommend this accommodation only as an overnight stay... More

I had such a lovely experience at the Blue Cottage. The owners are so lovely and go all out on making your stay as comfortable as you can. The cottages are clean, dinner and breakfast was delicious. THE BEST!

From greeting to fare-well: we enjoyed every moment. The cosy rooms, the great breakfast selection (try the trout if available) as well as the dinner set in the wonderful garden. And, on top, the friendly owners helped out with a lot of practical advise what to do and visit. Would certainly stay there again when in the area.

Over charged on dessert on final bill which we never had, Dinner is also very expensive if you eat in. Hospitality is great but I will not recommend this place for a holiday destination, Good 4 business trips

A bit ''old''-smelly cottages with dreadful, narrow kids-beds.70x180. (Quail 1, other rondavel had bigger beds, I saw) We asked to be moved and got a better room in the house, but 1 bed was not horizontal and my friend kept sliding to one side. The fan was too old and noisy to keep on at night, and lots of tiles... More

We booked into the double cottage for 3 nights but booked an extra one at the end of the week as we loved it so much. Upon arrival our hosts were warm and welcoming, they offered us drinks and the option for dinner that evening (which we took). The 'room' offered us everything we needed from cutlery and cook ware...

I stayed at this place owned by a wonderful couple for one night before going on a volunteer experience at Makalali Private Game Reserve. I was welcomed like at home, the parrots are great, there is a swimming-pool, place is very quiet and surrounded with beautiful vegetation. Rooms are very comfortable, so are beds. Very personalized service and food was... More
