We went to Brookdale for a day at the spa. ALL the staff were incredibly professional, friendly and polite. The pool, steam room and sauna facilities are spotless and well kept. The treatment rooms are relaxing and well appointed. The little touches like granadilla sorbet halfway through the hot morning, the welcome foot soak and the tea making table make...

This is the best hydro/spa in South Africa. Warm, welcoming, classy, professional amidst lovely country surroundings. Great food, superb treatments and lots to do. The morning walks can be challenging or if you prefer something sedater, go on the 'flat' walk .

This place is a real treat. Peaceful, beautiful, wonderful staff and superb treatments. My daughter and I cherished every moment of our three night stay. The amenities were fantastic and the Pilates class was amazing. Loved the food, bought both recipe books. Can't wait to go back again!!! Thank you for a blissful experience

My sister and I went for a 3-day "belated birthday treat" to Brookdale - something I had been promising myself to do for ages - and what a treat it was!

We were fortunate to spend a two night break at Brookdale in June and we were treated to two days of wonderful treatments administered by professional, knowledgeable staff in the most beautiful environment. Delicious food made every mealtime enjoyable! Can't wait to return

Brookdale is a little piece of heaven on earth. It restores your soul. I've been twice now and am determined to make coming here an annual pilgrimage. The beautiful setting soothes you. The staff are warm and welcoming. The food is mouth-watering and isn't anything like your stereotypical health spa deprivation meals. Brookdale reminds me that self-care isn't the same...
