Enjoyed the trip and had lots of fun with friends. Very hot, but the pool was there to cool us off. The golf course was very dry, but the greens were relatively well maintained. Louis pub across the fairway is always good fun as well

Accommodation is very spacious and clean. A very pleasant experience. Excellent value for money. Restaurant has good food at good prices. The swimming pool was very refreshing considering the very hot climate of the area. Nice challenging golf course.

I really think the resort could be much better if they could just focus on a few things. The staff is inadequate to cater for the number of guests- long waiting for meals.

We enjoyed the stay and my son enjoyed the golf coarse, but it was very dry and hot, which understandably was not your fault The rooms need some maintenance, as it was very hot, the air conditioning was very welcome The restaurant could do with cleaning up and better decor

The resort itself is very pleasant and clean. The location is unfortunately not ideal - a long drive down a dirt road (from Grahamstown) to get there. The drive from the opposite direction was enjoyable.

An excellent getaway for couples and families. Fine food, comfortable accommodation and good, friendly service. Bar facilities are good, a really fine , challenging golf course for those that enjoy the game- golf carts available. Beautiful ,natural scenery throughout the course. A lovely swimming pool to cool down in after a game of golf.

It's an amazing place in alicedale- a small little town with a few houses in the middle of nowhere. The road to alicedale a bit bumpy with a few local wildlife around! Arriving at bushmans you are met with an amazing and friendly receptionist, willing to take you to the room and willing to help. The room is huge and...

Great facilities and friendly staff! Ideal location if you want to visit some of the game farms in the area or overnight on your way back home or down to the coast. We enjoyed the food. Do not play golf so cannot comment on quality of golf course.

The place was great, nice and quiet for a relaxing stay. The restaurant served really good food and the staff was very warm and welcoming. It would be nice to have other outdoor activities around the area and not just golf . Overall we had a pleasant stay, thank you.
