We booked this resort/hotel through timeshare for a full week in April 2015. The overall idea we got was that the amenities is nice and comfortable. The warm baths is very nice although there were too many people during easter weekend. The place was crowded. I personally found that certain areas needed revamping very urgently. The tiles in the foyer... More

This was a return visit so I was aware of what to expect. I was happy with most of the offerings as well as the accommodation. I was previously in the Mountain Chalets and being in the hotel this time felt a bit like a downgrade although it had its own special characteristics and feel. Disappointments were bathroom space and... More

We booked a mountain chalet which is part of the Avalon springs hotel and we were pleasantly surprised. It is air conditioned and equipped with all you can possibly need. The most comfortable beds, hairdryers, gowns and everything else. There is a nice built in braai on the stoep with a very nice view over the mountains. Their breakfasts are... More

First off all the approach of the reception was poor and cold. Had to wear neon pink wrist bands to show you paid for your accommodation which was ok at first untill the staff price tagged you on the band. Felt like a animal in the zoo. The first night came and I discovered @ 22h00 that there wasn't one... More

Extremely friendly, helpful staff ensured a pleasant stay! Hotel's interior is very dated BUT very neat and clean. They were busy doing maintenance at the reception area so first impressions was not very good. However, we were informed before booking that scheduled maintenence is taking place.
