We stayed at the newlybuilt self catering apartments while the area was still being developed. We were warned of noise due to construction prior to booking. Despite all the warnings it is safe to say that it was some of the most peaceful nights sleep I experienced. In all our days spent there not a disturbing sound was heard. From...

I spent four nights with a group of girlfriends at this wonderful Midland retreat. It fulfilled and surpassed all my expectations. The staff are friendly and efficient, and anticipated our every need, even to setting up a bridge table in one of the lounges when drizzle made the patio unpleasant. The food was very good and my quirky diet needs...

It was HUGE. It was a bedroom and lounge area all rolled into one with all the modern extras like Flat screen TV, fireplace, separate dressing...

We stayed at Fordoun for 2 nights with our 2 year old daughter, in the suite on the end overlooking the dam and open grass area. This worked perfectly for us as our daughter could go play on the grass when she wanted to. The room was clean and nicely set up. The thing I really liked is that the...

This family run 5 star hotel and spa has stunning rooms, tasty breakfasts,a very good but pricey restaurant, friendly staff and a wonderful spa. The 2 highlights for me were the old silo which has been converted into a floatation pool and the wonderful, albeit slightly short mountain bike trails

We went there with my wife to celebrate our 3rd year Anniversary and the place offered us more than what we had bargained for. The scenery, food and treatments were just an out of this world experience.
