The hotel is beyond exceptional, I have never received such great service before. If you are planning a holiday, conference or an event, I recommend this hotel. Best in the country! While staying there you can also go for a game drive. Adults and children are catered for, the staff is friendly and very helpful.

Very nice place grew up around there. Excellent Service well priced and a wonderful staff and we had a great time. Lots to do there kids can keep themselves busy swimming or just relaxing around the pool.

Apart from that, the accommodation is spotless, comfortable, beautiful and feels like home from home. The restaurants are great offering a wide selection from a la-carte to... More

The suite has two en-suite bedrooms a fully equipped kitchen and a lounge. The main bedroom has a king bed and the second bedroom had two single beds. From the... More

Not too hectic but close to all the modern amenities in a half-rural setting. Just a welcome relief before engaging the odd 300 km to Johannesburg. Service acceptable but nothing to write home about...people friendly like all rural settings in a relaxed environment.

I traveled to the lodge for a conference and stayed in the self-catering chalet which was great. While I wouldn't describe the place as trendy, it had a homely and relaxing feel to it. I liked the personal touch of the welcoming letter addressed to me specifically. The room was large and spacious and overlooked the golf course. The chalet... More
