One of the biggest units I have ever stayed in on a holiday. Magnificent garden. Great service from superb hosts. Very peaceful and completely safe. Just needs to be slightly modernised and TV repaired.

We had a most pleasant stay at Blue cottages. our cottage was clean and well stocked. The grounds were well maintained, beautiful and serene. Our hosts were friendly and gave us the best info about the area and where to eat. Very relaxing

Really beautiful gardens - stunning surroundings. Bookings totally misunderstood despite clear email instructions. 4 single adults (3 in their 60's and one in her 40's) given a room with a double bed and a kids' bunk bed. Horrible dark stains on one of the pillows (like dried blood), which we could see through the thin pillow slip. That left us... More

The rondavel in which we stayed was a bit rustic and indeed dark. We needed the bathroom door with the light on to see properly. However the hospitality was excellent and both meals dinner and breakfast were superb. WE have to say that the visit of the horse for his breakfast was novel.

Very nice house with littles cottages, as their name, with all that you need for a quiet rest. The owners are a friendly couple that helps you with all your doubts to visit the beautiful Blyde river canyon.

We checked into the homely Blue Cottages after driving from Kruger Park. Set in a beautiful garden, the affable owners couple showed us to our cottage. Another couple was making use of what seemed like the communal outdoor dining facility which relegated us to eat off our laps under the huge rubber tree. The couple's music was playing rather loudly... More
