“a relaxing stay”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

a visit to the caledon hotel and spa is a real tonic during the cold winter months. The hotel is very comfortable, clean and the rooms as well. We had a very nice room on the ground floor with doors leading out onto the gardens. We also had a small patio with lounger chairs. Unfortunately the weather was cold but the warm baths made up for it. Nothing can beat soaking in the warm mineral baths or taking a jacquzzi in one of the other pools. It is truly food for the soul.
The breakfast which is included in the price is very good with a wide choice of cereals, fruit, eggs,
pancakes, cheeses, cold meats , preserves, pastries and tea and coffee. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Frequent visitor during the winter months to the hotel and spa. Staff is friendly and accomodating and also very helpfull. Stress free and relaxing. Just do not book near the stairs that lead to the rooms that can be very noisy and disturbing. Food on room service menu and breakfast in dining room is very good. Restaurants on premises is ok. Best cocktail at the casino bar I had in a long time. Mineral baths are tidy and spa is a worthwhile visit.

Room Tip: Do not book the first 3 rooms from the stairs that lead to the rooms, very noisy and disturbing.

The rooms are very fancy, each with a LCD television and satellite channels, which makes your stay very cosy. The hotel includes a spa and a gym not to mention the best part of the stay for me, which was the Hot spring pools. There are about 5, the hottest one is located at the top of the hill and is usually about 40 degrees celsius. If you carry on going down the hill there is another pool with a slightly lower temperature ranging about 36 degrees celsius. Each pool gets it's water from the pool above it. If you get to the bottom pool the temperature is about 28 degrees celcius, which is quite cold if you've gone higher. I loved that part of my stay, also because the pools are always open, so you can go in the morning or at night. Once a week all the pools get cleaned and nobody can use them for the day. The hotel and casino are linked meaning you don't have to walk outside to get from the one to the other. The casino isn't very big, but there is an arcade, and a child care facility in the casino building, but none of these facilities are very big compared to bigger casinos found in South Africa. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this hotel and enjoyed every aspect of it, so I recommend it to you!

We've visited the Caledon Spa quite a few times over the years and noticed a marked deterioration in general maintenance of the place on this occasion. The room that we were first given was billed as "meadow facing", however no meadow was visible since there was an earth embankment in front of the door which blocked out more than half of the "view". Rooms are non smoking but the room stank of tobacco smoke, presumably from the previous occupants, also there were dark stains all over the carpets, not nice!

We were quickly moved to another room, which was a big improvement. What we did notice in both rooms was a lot of wear and tear, broken tiles, stains on the bottom of the bath, faded signage and a hotel "manual" that has seen better days with torn and battered pages. Pool towels were tatty and frayed, even the room towels were pretty tired and old. Seriously, if I had towels like that I wouldn't give them to my guests but would use them to dry the dog, they are a disgrace.

The spa was really nice, but even there I noticed loads of stuff that needs fixing; tiles missing from the sides of the Victorian Spa, broken and loose railings, battered changing room doors. It was depressing, like the owners have just given up on maintaining the place and are just waiting for it to decay.

On the plus side, the bedding was really good quality, we had a fantastic nights sleep. The breakfast buffet was fantastic with a large variety from which to choose, food in the other restaurants was excellent and the setting is hard to beat.

The problems are so easy to fix; new towels, a couple of handymen for a week & a coat of paint here and there would make the world of difference.

Visited this beautiful heaven on earth property on my birthday, 31st of May. Stayed in a suit called Caledon suit. Meet and greet at the foyer by the duty manager and the warm welcome by the staff at the receptio. Oh how do i 4get a porter who saw us circling around looking foe a parking as it was a busy month end, he came with his golf card and lead us to the far end parking then drove us back to the foyer

The view, spacious room, fire place as it was a cold and raining weekend. Had dinner at the main restaurant, enjoyed a wide variety of buffet from soup, salads, roasts and those warm malva pudding for desserts

Slept like babies and joined them again for breakfast, with last night's quality of food and service standard, expectations were high and they didn't dissapoint at all

Wow the gardens, spar, wonderland games for kids if you travel with them. Real place to be as we hated to bid farewell and left on Sunday afternoon as we requested a late check out and guess what!!!!!!

We came back on Sunday the 2nd of June and stayed in the same room, checked out Monday the 3rd, can't get enough of good things nhe :-) Thumbs up to house keeping ladies as well for their good work

Room Tip: Ask for any suit facing the mountain, as they have the best view

We visited the Caledon Casino and Spa also known as the Thermal Resort in May 2013. It was winter and the temperature was around 15 C. The rooms are average size with a good bathroom. The hotel has a natural hot water spring swimming pool which is really hot. Also it has an open air three jacuzzis in which the water from the hot springs filters down. Though the water is hazy brown and green in colour it is clean and worth a swim. The changing area is neat n clean and has good shower facilities. The restaurant area is big and spacious and service good. The room service is neat and efficient. The hotel has big casino, gamezone, ziplines, quad bikes and many other optional activities.

Room Tip: Take the upper deck rooms

Caledon is short drive from Cape Town so ideal for a relaxing stay literally soaking up the atmosphere of the hot pools and the associated spa facilities of steam room, sauna and cold plunge pool. The latter was my favourite. The rooms were comfortable with spacious bed and bathroom. Breakfast on the terrace was a delight. The staff were most helpful especially in arranging for some lost property to be delivered to Cape Town. I hope it not too long until I return.

Room Tip: The valley rooms are south facing and do not get any sunshine. All ground floor rooms have a seatin...
