We enjoyed a night at Seaforth, including massages and dinner. The geese outside our window in the morning were a treat and the little pigs roaming around are adorable. We were treated like royalty, fetched from our room for our massage, which was excellent. The facilities are the perfect blend of modern with old country charm. The massage therapists are... More

We were greeted by such friendly staff, and Quenton, the manager. The room was phenomenal. Beautiful. Outside, we had a verandah overlooking the dam. The treatment by the spa, the massage, wraps and marina mud pack, was serene. Quenton was always there, asking us if we need anything. After supper, we went to our room where Johannes had prepared our... More

We purchased the Spa/Accom special and received the most amazing value for money. We paid R1299 for our accommodation (for 2) and received free spa treatments (full body scrub, mud wrap, massage and outdoor jacuzzi), a free vegetarian dinner and breakfast, a tea course and we had the most amazing view of the drakensberg mountains! The staff were brilliant. The... More

We booked into Seaforth recently for a Groupon spa special. We knew the lodge from a day visit a few years before and were looking forward to staying there. Our room was very nice and spacious, if in need of a little TLC (large wall cracks and holes in the carpet) However the spa experience was very poor. We paid... More
