We are very greatful for the efforts that Dave and his wife did for us by looking after our car when the river flooded. The staff are friendly and the grounds are well maintained with beautiful surrounds.

We stayed at Rainbow Glen on the recommendation of local friends. We had the Garden Cottage for two nights. It sleeps 4 and has a private braai/BBQ lapa. Dave, the owner, was friendly and helpful and my daughter enjoyed playing with the bunnies and being included in the chicken feeding and egg collecting routine in the morning. We would stay here again.

We did our 1 night stay very much in these guest cottages. Nice location outside town, which was very quiet. The bed was a little hard, but all the rest was perfect.
Every cottage was having a private table for having, breakfast, a bbq or just to relax. Nice size swimming pool and mountain view.

My stay at Rainbow Glen was the lowest point in my three week holiday. During the 2011 festive season my family and I embarked on a three week holiday which started In Goudini and ended at the beautiful Avalon Springs resort. Our convoy consisted of eight adults and eight children. We had the misfortune of staying at Rainbow Glen for 3 days. I have been to many resorts and not once have I ever received such bad service. Upon arrival the owner of the place explained to me how the gas geyser needed to be nursed as the geyser was not working properly, I was fine with that. In total we booked 4 chalets for the three days. From the moment we arrived the owner was buzzing around us as if we were going to break something. During our stay at Rainbow Glen my family was approached more then ten time to remind us of the resorts do’s and don’ts. The owner made it a point of popping into all our chalets every day with some or other lame excuse. On one occasion the children was preparing to go swim in the pool and the owners first reaction was to pull out his bucket of chlorine and start treating the pool. I was advised that it’s not a good idea to swim in the pool for quite a while. Thirty minutes later the owner had his friends and family members in the pool having a party and boozing whilst my family and I had to sit and watch. Whilst packing up to hit the road, the owner, his wife and the dog who had been pooping all over the lawn came to visit us to check if the there had been any breakages. I mentioned to the owner that my stay was rather unpleasant as a result of his constant interruptions. His response in as few words as possible was “Your opinion does not count” and that our presence was unpleasant. This is the worst place I have ever been to and I would not recommend it to anyone who likes their own privacy. The owner is a sly and obnoxious individual and had it not been for him, my stay would have been blissful

Room Tip: attached is a pic of the owner entertaining his friends whilst we had to sit and watch.

Unfortunately we had to ask these guests never to come back as they were rude to our staff and to our other guests and left a disgusting mess.
This is the first and only time we have ever tolerated such disrespect from people staying with us as we find our guests are as respectful and appreciative of us and our beautiful place as we are of them.

We stayed in Almond chalet at Rainbow Glen just prior to Christmas and were really impressed by the tranquillity and beauty there as well as the owner's friendliness and hospitality towards us . The facilities were perfect for our small family and our children loved the pool, the play area and being involved with feeding the animals and stalking the tortoises around the garden. We were also lucky enough to be there on a day they were having an open-air concert in their garden which was festive and fun, but in no way intrusive.
The owners were really helpful in suggesting activities for us to enjoy in the area, and made our stay really pleasant.

we stayed in the Muscadel cottage at rainbow glen for a week. It was perfect. The location is great, for children there is a safe play area with pet farm animals and children intrests activities. The hosts go out of their way to make you feel at home. The price is reasonable and we would stay there again without hesitation. It is also on the doorstep to a great hike and rock climbing location.

Room Tip: all the rooms seemed great.
