We stayed in a 2 bedroom house. House was a bit dated yet comfortable. Inside fireplace and outside braai area. Dstv in house. We did not like the idea that you still had to pay to swim in the hot water pools.

When I first went I thought it was going to be boring,until I saw all the fun activities like putt putt,hiking cycling ect. I also give the hotel AVALON SPRINGS a five star rating. Their restaurant serves delicious food. I also like their island pool. I loved the water slide. This would be the best place to go in winter

The unit is big and comfortable. It is budget but, although not luxury, everything is clean, everything works, nothing is left to be desired. It has everything, even an aircon / heater. The facilities are fantastic for kids and safe. My kids played all day. The pool is hot and really great for a winter break. The only downside is... More

We have always enjoyed Avalon Springs. The hotel is being refurbished, but there is a serious lack of attention to detail. Inconsistency in quality of staffing and management made for a confusing stay. Never knowing what to expect next.

We enjoyed our 2-3 hours at the resort as day visitors with our children (8 and 10). As it was June and cold, there were only a couple of areas we could enjoy for long as water temps varied. Was glad we were there on a Monday and not a weekend - small "hot tub" pool and warm areas of... More

Accommodation is clean but still doesn't mask the fact that it's old. Bedding, furniture, all old. The pool smells of chlorine,water was always murky and dirty with clumps of hair floating in the pool. really don't understand why we have to pay to swiim,more day Nogal. Kid friendly, but they don't know any better. Not worth it

After phoning ahead to find out about the braai facilities at the large Plettenberg chalets, we were informed there is a braai grid and tongs. Upon arrival we checked.....nothing. We reported it the next morning at reception and were told they would take care of it. We were out the whole day and arrived back Saturday evening, still no braai... More

We stayed in a "large Plettenberg" chalet (sleeps 4). It was poorly maintained and showed its age. A main door squeaked irritatingly, and there was dust and cobwebs in places. Some window frames did not fit properly, did not open freely, and security catches did not work in places. The double bed frame collapsed when we tried to move it,... More

This was our fourth stay at Montagu Springs Resort. We stayed on a three night midweek special. The Plettenberg is basic, but comfortable and value for money. We love the surrounding mountains and the scenery. The resort is tranquil and peaceful. The staff is friendly and helpful. All facilities are nearby. The hot mineral pools are definitely the highlight of... More
