Beautiful quiet home away from home. Wonderful setting. Very peaceful and tranquil. Staff lovely and nothing to much of an effort. The acess road could be better maintained but that's a governmental issue.

We stayed 3 nights over the long weekend in September in 2 Lake side suites. A vast improvement on the cleanliness of the rooms since a year ago, which was a pleasant surprise! Service in the bar has also improved with a better bar menu. Staff is friendly and we felt welcome. Will return!

A couple of hours east of ORTambo airport is an amazing complex of hotel, lakeside suites, and luxury self-catering houses. It is huge, sitting atop a hill with 360 degree views of the surrounding countryside. The well-established group of property owners and operators, Gooderson Leisure, bought the estate in early 2012 and has brought their excellence of management to it. Highly recommended as a place for that night-you-need between the airport and your safari. Or stay longer and fish for trout, ride horseback, just chill out. Coming from Johannesburg, 12Kms past a turnoff to Belfast and Dullstrom, you come upon an unpaved road to the left marked: "Winnaarspoort". Take it. 10 minutes later you will start the drive to the crest of the hill and see for yourself this remarkable lodge. A relaxing night there and the hustle & bustle of your time in Johannesburg will be forgotten!

Room Tip: If the budget bears it, choose a Lakeside Suite. This is a small home, to be frank. The regular hote...

The photos available on the internet dont do justice to this place. We booked 2 self catering units that sleep 4 each (2bedrooms). We loved the location. Units are tastefully decorated with under floor heating and have gas fireplace and gas braai. The views are just fantastic! Service was great! We will definitely go back again.

Even though the spa experience was horrid the owner took the time to call us to apologise and asked for more feedback. She offered us vouchers to compensate. I must note that the spa is infact outsourced. It is just stunning but the service and experience on the day was just poor.

My wife and I just had a great romantic weekend at Kloppenheim. Food was good, service was great and you can see the Gooderson group is sorting out the place. One of the best views in Mpumalanga from our Lakeside suite! Can reccommend this gem to anyone looking for a romantic getaway.
