My husband and I stayed at Crystal Springs with our two boys from 18-21 March 2011. We were very impressed by the beautiful layout of the lodge. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit which was modern, well equipped (microwave, stove, fridge and breakfast nook in kitchen) and sparkling clean. Our covered deck had a built in braai and was... More

OK, so here is the bottom line. This is a very comfortable resort located in a very beautiful mountain region with many great places for hiking and sight seeing. We stayed with friends in a two bedroom villa which was clean and comfortable. We brought in groceries to have breakfast in the room before going out for the day. The... More

Crystal Springs is a very nice and quiet resort. We enjoy the surrounding mountains and the beautiful view from the chalets. We love to make fire in the fireplace every night - its just a pity the fore wood is not replenished on a daily basis. The chalets are old, but clean and kept clean by the wonderful cleaning ladies.... More

A beautiful resort which has stunning views. Quiet and peaceful. Only problem for me was the far drive to participate in outdoor activities. Very friendly staff both at reception and the restaurant. Clean and well maintained.

The surroundings and amenities of the lodge are very good. The surroundings provide genuine relaxation. At dawn, the view from our balcony was therapeutic - coupled with viewing the animals that were grazing nearby. The facilities (bar, games room, warm pools and gym) give a good balance for the needs of the entire family. As we visited in winter, the... More

We had a fantastic stay. Beautiful scenery and good facilities. Fantastic heated pools near reception and one under cover. Very good kitchenware and furnishings. There was one shower and one bath tub. The shower is extremely small so if you are a relatively bigger person this can be very uncomfortable. You can barely turn around in the shower without touching... More

Self catering unit was ideal. There is everything one needs for a comfortable stay. Great to have free wood and fire lighters as it was very chilly at night. Beautiful views of mountains and game reserve from the verandas - all the chalets are built on the edge of an escarpment. Pilgrims Rest and other attractions of Panarama Route are... More

Nature lovers will adore the setting. The Lodge is in the mountains and there are plenty small towns to visit in the area. The lodge also provide various attractions for kids of all ages. There is also a gym and jogging facilities for fit and slim. A visit to this lodge is an absolute enjoyment.
