“South African gem”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

Stayed 2 nights at blue roan.
A perfect getaway just 1:15 from JNB. Very peaceful, romantic and beautiful location.
Each chalet has it's own theme, very creative and unique.
The chalets are well equipped with anything you would need.
No kids here but many dogs and horses and a wonderful panoramic view of Magaleisburg.
The hosts, Judy and Yossi, are very welcoming and attend to every need. They will be glad to recommend places to see and restaurants to eat.
It really fills home away from home.
We will be back for more.

Room Tip: can't miss, each room you choose is a hit.

I was most impressed at how well equipped my chalet was for self catering accommodation. There was nothing I needed or felt that was missing!!
The mattress on my King size bed was nice & firm, and good quality linen (which 1 doesn't often find or expect unless staying in a 5 star hotel).
Judy is a great host, hospitable, and was always a "stones throw away" if I needed anything.
The only suggestion I can think of (or personally would have liked) were bedside lamps.
Otherwise I can highly recommend Blue Roan Guest Farm - keep up the good work Judy!!!

Very friendly hosts and staff who go out who go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and welcome. Love the place, will be back soon. Plenty of space for our Jack Russell to relax, run around and enjoy herself. Everything thing has been carefully thought out, nothing else needed in the chalets, everything you need with the exception of your food and drink is provided

Well when I started planning a "weekend away" for me and hubby I did not now where to start as Romantic get away's are running a very high costs... After much search I came across Blue Roan...

I was thrilled with my discovery and could not wait to email and start planning... Judy was very fast to return my email and respond quickly and immediately knew that this was going to be very easy... On arrival we felt right at home with the warmest welcome... and we really enjoyed staying in the most peaceful setting sleeping and relaxing as we went.. Our budget was not enormous but still managed to have a wonderful time... Hubby was very surprised to know that Judy was aware that I wanted to do this for him for his Birthday and she left him a beautiful wish for his birthday...

I will recommend Blue Roan to any one at any time... We were very sad to leave Blue Roan but will make a plan to do so again...

The place was just excellent, the service was great. We wished we could have stayed longer, we will definitely go back and refer other family members and friends. Its definitely much better that a hotel.

Thank you for a lovely stay :)

We have stayed in quite a few Lodges in the Magaliesberg area, but this was an experience we will never forget. Going back in December 2013, and regularly thereafterThe accommodation is more than a 4* Star Rating. Absolutely provide everything you possibly need. Very clean and tidy. The hosts Judy & Yossie, absolutely make you feel at home, like you own the place.

The service was excellent as well as the warm welcome we received upon arrival. The place was also immaculate and the serenity of the place was mesmerizing. We enjoyed spending hours on the patio staring at Magaliesberg and just getting lost in time. Next time we will make it a longer stay as the weekend was a bit short. This is definitely a place to recommend if you need a place just to relax and not do anything and to get away from the buzz of city life.
