“Romantic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

To lie in the pristine water of the springs and let your troubles soak away is marvellous. The private jacuzzis are fantastic, spacious and fun. The surrounding vegetation nice for walks. Go and enjoy.

“A relaxing escape from Modern life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

This is a wonderful getaway, where there are just enough modern conveniences to make life comfortable. The accommodation is good and the waters fantastic with a huge variety of baths; High powered private jacuzzi's, rock pools set under a canopy of trees and the ever relaxing hot pool. I would highly recommend this as the ultimate in relaxing getaways at the best value for money ever!!!!!!!

“its okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

we went as day visitors and there is only one pool and not much to do as day visitors. It would be nice more pools, small like rock pools with warm water.

“Disappointing and dirty accommodation”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

We were on honeymoon and chose this location because we were looking for the rustic outdoor feel- a place where we could enjoy the hot baths in the middle of June. On booking we asked for their best accommodation offered because it was our honeymoon. We were given a chalet, from the outside it looked great with fantastic views of the valley. Unfortunately that is where the "great" ended- on entering the chalet we were met with a smell of smoke that lingered in the air. The curtains and the bedding smelt terrible and were dirty. We spent our first night of our honeymoon sleeping on top of the covers and covered ourselves with our swimming towels. The shower had a ball of hair in it and was blocked, the list is too long too mention- the place was just filthy! We bought bedding the next day in Citrusdal and stayed the second night, but then decided that we could no longer tolerate the state of the chalet and moved out. We were refunded for the next two nights that we should have stayed, but no apology from management, not even an attempt was made to make us more comfortable or an offer of other accommodation. The management have a "no care attitude"- this is apparent in the reply I got to my letter of complaint to them.
I would not recommend this place to anyone.

“warm and clean water with different types of accomodation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

Compared to Montagu, Avalon and Caledon warm springs, this is the best. NOT during the school holidays and in the middle of winter and any couple will have a very large, clean and warm pool all to yourselves. Accommodation varies in quality and price and is not upper market. Think, it is own by municipality, which explain. Nice hiking in the mountain. All very romantic without the modern noises of city and too many people. "Outside" chalets is very private but too far from hot spring. Flats close to spring can be noisy with people above you. If you want a get away from the city, this is it. If you need your cellphone, internet and fast food, stay away.
