Perfect starting point to visit Blyde Canyon and it‘s sights. Only slight improvements to be made, such as indicating the shortcuts from the house to the restaurant or refilling the coffee for the Perfect starting point to visit Blyde Canyon and it‘s sights second night. We loved it here and even had a cat as our pet for the evening there.

Very nice location but very much vintage and it was fairly cold .....No warming system and few sheets. There is a limited set of commodities in the kitchen while the shop was closed most of the time. But we had a great time however due to the magical location !

Overall the resort is 100%. The restaurant needs to be taken a look at. Our orders were wrong and the foods was tasteless. We were going to eat at the restaurant during our entire stay but after our first night we decided to rater eat outside the resort.

Brisbane, Australia1 contribution
Location is nice but room was run down and smelled of stale smoke. We asked for a different room as resort was clearly not fully booked. Where told it was not possible as they had a conference going. We did not see any activity in many cottages around so had to assume this was an excuse not to do anything.

Resort was neat and tidy. Ablutions need to be cleaned either late at night or early morning as they were unacceptable in the morning. Caravan sites are very uneven and need to be leveled or paved. Resort shop was well stocked.
