After emerging from the parched landscape of Kruger it was really nice to stay in these lush gardens - breakfast and dinner in the garden with was a real treat. Hosts are lovely people, and I was personally introduced to all their pet birds - an Australian rainbow lorikeet speaking Afrikaans was a first for me! From previous reviews we... More

The garden is very beautiful and so nice to sit and relax after a long day's travel! We even had our dinner served on a patio table outside in the garden on a lovely summer's evening! Friendly service.

We were welcomed with open arms by Tony and his lovely wife. The cottages are beautiful and the gardens a lush feast of flowers and trees. We will definitely visit again when we are in the area. Thank you!

We stayed in the Blue Cottages after a week in the Kruger Park, the gardens and location of the cottages were lovely. The hospitality and evening meal provided by the owners is outstanding, will definitely stay again at some time.

The gardens at Blue Cottages are well kept and beautiful but the cottages themselves have seen better days. They are in desperate need of revamping, especially the bathrooms which are bare and void of any comforts. The hosts are friendly but this doesn't make up for feeling like you are staying in a backpackers. The dinner was very expensive for... More

Tony and Trisha were extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating; the perfect hosts! A peaceful location in a beautiful setting. Units were great, and we were able to braai and enjoy the evening sounds Tasty breakfast choices (I highly recommend the 'ramble') Mad Dogz Cafe and curio shop just down the lane also do good food, and is a great place...

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
