What a beautiful place, such a shame that (most) of the staff was just not offering the service you would expect from a 4 star resort. The boomgate staff AMAZING, the reception staff, AMAZING, anything else, not to our expectation. It is not that they are unfriendly, it is just lack of service, not being around, empty glasses on our...

The prices of their goods in the bakery are very unreasonable. I would recommend that you stay away from purchasing from the bakery. The units could also do with some air-conditioners in the units for midday heat. The resort has breathtaking views but their walking paths could be better maintained and have better signage.

Halfway between Durban and Johannesburg, nestled amongst the mountains is this amazing resort. About 100 chalets built beautifully up the hills with each having its own amazing mountain view. Each chalet consists of 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and can house 6 people. Chalets are well equipped. Guided tours are available. One could eat from the restaurant or prepare their...

The shower leaked, bathrooms not cleaned properly, they missed housekeeping entirely for a day, the door was sticking, the service wasn't particularly great from some staff, the food was barely passable considering...

An absolutely serene place with self catering chalets. The entire resort is covered in lush green lawns. Dont expect to relax too much as they have a full activity programme for the entire day. The usual facilities are there, squash, tennis, playground, games room, mini movie theatre, horse riding, mini golf, etc, A heated pool would be the icing on...

Very over priced in house store with such high accommodation rates not including breakfast as complimentary is disgraceful and distasteful and very unbecoming of a 4 star facility and very sad to do so

Great location. Very relaxing. Awesome for kids. Plenty to do. Horse riding is great because the guides take you into the mountains. Great outdoor adventures right next door. Activities available all day for kids. There is also an auditorium . The pool is not heated. There is a shop with basic necessities. Will go back!
