We stayed over a night when we had nowhere else to stay and the owners made us feel so welcome and comfortable. We woke up the next day to an utterly miserable cold front with torrential rain and strong winds so we extended our stay for another night and took advantage of the comfortable chalet we stayed in. Even for 5 bikers from another province they were willing to go the extra mile and we had a lovely meal and a couple of beers.
When we first arrived the views were spectacular and the rim flow pool very inviting after a long day's riding. The place is awesome, clean and tidy and everything you'd expect from a top class establishment. It is very centrally located and perfect for a base from which to explore the Blyde River Canyon and surrounding attractions. I definitely recommend staying here.
