We stayed over at Chestnut Country Lodge for two nights. We had an amazing stay with Christine, her lovely dogs and of course her staff. The lodge is located in a beautiful place and has an absolute amazing view. The most important is the kindness, enthusiasm and the way the guests are welcomed and treated during their stay. We would... More

This place is breathtakingly beautiful. The rooms and service are just as beautiful as the staff! Just for a little Texas fun and inside information, Gwynn is very jumpy. Hide around the corner and whisper BOO!

We stayed here for 2 nights with a large sporting group and greatly enjoyed our stay. The well kept grounds, including a pleasant pool area have lovely views over the surrounding area. We were lucky to score room 6 which was very large and comfortable, and one of the nicest ones available. Some of the other rooms were small in... More

We have stayed at Chestnut on several occasions over the last 15 years, and never have been dissapointed. Still amazed by the view. Moving the pool down to the valley was a good idea, as breakfast can be served outside on the larger terras now, which is wonderful.The rooms are spacious and clean. The set dinner menu is varied and... More

The location of Chestnut Country Lodge is hard to beat, if views and quiet are your priorities. The dirt road to access the lodge, although fine in a 4x4, is probably hard work without one when going downhill, particularly in the wet, less so uphill. Once you hit the tar road, you are very close to Hazyview, the KNP and... More

Stayed 2 nights in March. Room was large and homely. Shower head could use an update but bed and pillows very comfy. Breakfast was home cooked and delicious as was the 3 course dinner. The owner( born in Australia) was so obliging and friendly nothing was a problem. A very enjoyable stay

We stayed for 3 nights and loved every moment. It was relaxing and exactly what we needed to get away from the big city! The welcome, really great food, fantastic bird spotting including a Trumpeter Hornbill, and super view was stunning. There is so much to do around Chestnut Country Lodge as well. Thanks for the great time that we... More

When arriving to CCL, it was very difficult to access after the rains (dirt road), but when you're finally there it's a lovely place with a beautiful view and a nice pool. Depending on who of the personel you talk to the service varies from friendly and competent to completely uninterested. The rooms are fine, but lacks air conditioning and... More

I considered quite a few options for our stay on New years eve and in the end I am glad I decided on Chestnut Country Lodge. The place is set away from the main road and although the gravel road leading to the lodge needs some attention it is still ok for any vehicle. The rooms are next to each... More
