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.

Went to Crystal Springs again this weekend, and I must say that we have never been disappointed by our stay here. Chalets are well looked after, you can see that proper maintenance is done. I like that you get free wood and fire lighters upon check-in and they replace the fire lighters every day. Amazing views from all the chalets... More

We had a good stay at the lodge and were pleased about the facilities. Clean and spacious - nice scenery and as a good starting point to do the Panorama Route. Lodge was cleaned daily and there is everything you need. Friendly staff. Supermarkets and other shops are not in near vicinity, so take your groceries along or make use... More

One can only book into this resort at 16hoo. This makes a weekend very short... The lodge is very well situated amongst plantations, but the view is spoilt by all the huge, nearby trees. We stayed in a Clubhouse Suite which I won't recommend. It's cramped with a limited view. The slightest movement from the neighbours upstairs is very disturbing.... More

If you want a nice relaxing time away from the hustle and bustle , shopping malls and big towns and cities , this is the place to go. Take all food items with you if you are self catering unless you want to eat at their restaurant- . The roads are way too scary to drive at night to pop... More

This is my second time at Crystal Springs and my first trip was about 8 years ago and although the lodge and facilities have been upgraded since then I still don't think it is worth 4 stars.
