I love this hotel. I often go for a mid-week break, it's like home-away-from home for me. the hotel offers fantastic specials between Sunday night and Thursday night, so be sure to ask about that when booking. Weekends can be very busy at the pools, so if you dont mind that, then the weekend rates are also good value. The setting is glorious - beautiful gardens and mature tree's, spectacular views out over the overberg farmlands from the pools and garden facing rooms. Some of the bedrooms are a bit outdated, but, I have always found them to be clean and adequately stocked with bath products, mineral water etc. The beds are first class and very comfortable. Flat screen TV's, airconditioning and heating and most rooms have doors leading onto a private terrace outside. I have often found that I have the pools to myself, or, am able to find a pool to myself, which is amazing!! the water is iron rich so is a brownish colour, but it is incredibly rejuvinating and relaxing. There is also a very pleasant Spa on the premises offering reasonably priced treatments. Ask about their specials. The Buffet breakfast in the Blue Crane restaurant has a wide enough variety to suit all tastes. From fresh fruit salad and yoghurts, lots of freshly baked goods, full english breakfast to flapjacks with cream and maple syrup. Cuppucino machine and filter coffee on tap. I agree that the restaurants near the casino (Da Vinci's and Black Steer) can be a bit slow on service...however, Da Vinci's offers light fare at reasonable prices and Black Steer does a fairly good steak, ribs, lamb shank etc. You can also have a great salad, but ask them to bring the dressing seperately! in regard to a possible wait for your fare - ask the manageress when you walk in approximately how long your order will take to reach the table. ie: let them know if you are in a hurry. this really does speed things up! the staff at the hotel and casino are exceptional. Go with a good attitude and you will reap the benefits of their friendly and caring service! There are babysitting facilites as well as a games room and creche for kids although I haven't taken a child there so cant rate that. The horseriding and forest adventures look like they could be fun too. The Caledon hotel and spa is a wonderful place to escape to for a bit of chilling out - enjoy it while it still offers excellent value for money. The pools are emptied and cleaned once a week, so check what day that is before you book. Jo.
