We are from Gauteng and we spent 3 nights at the MyPond Hotel in December 2009 - from the booking online (which was completely hassle-free and convenient) to the last evening, was absolute bliss.
The room we stayed in was comfortable, clean, air-conditioned and had all the amenities you'd expect from a four star hotel and more. Every one of the staff members were friendly, helpful and professional and they went out of their way to deliver excellent service. The atmosphere is wonderfully peaceful and we were relaxed from the minute we arrived, until we had to leave ;-(
Early buttermilk and pecan breakfast pancakes were heavenly outside in the peaceful morning hour next to the tranquil silent river. Lunch and Dinner was just as exquisite.
What made us enjoy the trip even more, was knowing that the MyPond hotel is "green" as well and are doing their bit to save our planet.
We will definitely be back - hopefully soon!
