Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The rooms were cleaned daily and the cleaning staff were very good at what they did and very friendly towards us.... More

We stayed in a two bedroom lodge. The views are spectacular. They have very friendly staff , lovely bar area around the pool and a great kiddies entertainment area. The rooms are spacious and extra heating is provided during winter nights which can be cold.

A lovely long weekend in the mountain with good friends, great wine, log fires, relaxing spa treatments and a few friendly visits from the local wild life. This is not my first time at Crystal Springs and it will not be my last! Also great for exploring the great outdoors with the kids :)

Accommodation at lodges are well planned/ equipped and serviced. We enjoyed the heated towel rails and wall units as well as the fire place. Lots of activities to keep yourself busy or enjoy the beauty of nature.

The scenery from the lodges are stunning. There's not much entertainment facilities but the place has really nice hiking routes. The service is great and the workers are friendly. I would highly recommend this place for people who would want to get away from the rushed city life
