“Great value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

With the winter special we got some great accommodation at a great price. The self catering chalet was very clean and well equipped. It even had DSTV! The heaters in every room were very welcome in the chilly evenings. Even though the electricity tripped one night it was responded to with a very reasonable time. The view across the dam was brilliant. Being on the MIdlands Meander is is very well located and not far from the shops in Howick.

We went there to stay for three nights. Waking up in the morning after the first night we found the villa has been broken into and anything of value had been stolen. Then they went next door to my parents and took wallets, keys, phones, etc..

Management was told at about 5:00 am. On site security arrived about 8:30 with the manager arriving around 9:30. Bad luck.

Room Tip: Take a gun with you.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2012

Stayed for one night in one of the 40 plus chalets available overlooking the Midmar Dam.

Each chalet includes a lounge/dining room, fully operational kitchen and braai (barbecue) amenities.

Midmar is situated close to Pietermaritzburg and Howick and a part of the Midlands Meander tourist route.

In addition there are ‘rustic cabins’ available – equipped with refrigerators and electrical stoves, but communal ablution facilities. There are also campsites available on the resort, two with a water frontage.

However for my money, I would definitely look at the full equipped chalet’s.
