Although this resort is known for its holiday services and atmosphere, staying here when on business is a really good idea. It's generally quiet and stress free. I've stayed several times while on business and the number of business people coming in for bed and breakfast is definitely increasing. Management is friendly and the accommodation is fair - not spectacular... More

The site was lovely with lots of trees for cover against the extreme heat and this was a huge advantage to the property. It is so relaxing with the big stands to offer where other sites it feels you are sitting on top of one another but we never had this issue at Merry Pebbles. The property is safe and... More

We had a awesome time at Merry Pebbles. We went camping and the camp sites were neat and tidy with more than enough space whether you like to be close to others or a bit secluded there are different stands. The ablution quarters were very neat and tidy, some more modern than others, but the staff are always keeping it... More

Fair and properly maintained sites with green grass. No reserved stands. No nonsense approach to noise makers. Braai facilities not up to standard. Excellent bike trails with different degrees of difficulty. Heated pools temp was not heated enough. Ablution facilities although dated was clean. Some toilets not flushing. No hand soap in the bathrooms. Overall nice.

Great place for all the wrong reasons. Trout river fishing - un-stocked. Reeds uncontrolled. Ablutions dirty except at night when it actually gets cleaned up. Other that that a great place for the family just to relax and enjoy tubing dien the river / the heated pool and a clean outside environment. Must say cannot just blame the resort for... More
