Great location and with such a beautiful setting. The staff were friendly and super accommodating. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was served promptly and tasted delicious. Our only suggestion for improvement would be to provide more hooks and railings in the en-suite bathroom for the hand towel and toilet roll, and shelving in the shower for storage.

WE enjoyed our time at Biggy best Cottage, The rooms are a mixture of rustic Cottages and luxurious large rooms.As we were staying week we preferred to have a cottage, as the Premises are pet friendly, and we were able to take our to dogs with us,. The cottages vary in size, and also vary in decor., but are comfortable Our only problem was that three of the cottages have no shower, only a bath, and the one cottage only a hand shower, This was awkward for us as My wife has great difficulty in getting in or out of a bath. The breakfast was excellent, The staff really go out of their way to accommodate ones concerns, and are very helpful . The Rooms are well serviced, and very clean. We would have no hesitation in booking their again

Property and buildings are pretty but do not really live up to website pics. Only one option to sit outdoors. Friendly staff, clean rooms and breakfast was actually pretty good in a really interesting dining area. The bathroom was dark (only one working led bulb and it was a warm one) and the shower has nowhere to place toiletries. Guest soap bar was really cheap and nasty. Nice sized comfortable bed but we got bitten by fleas and we believe it was in the bed. Could do with a small fridge in the room. The TV had incredibly bad reception. Cellphone data and wifi reception also not great. It was not a disaster, and reasonably priced, but we were happy to only be staying two nights.

We stayed in the corporate suites which were clean and comfortable, and the venue was easily accessible from the N3 and also to get to the Karkloof area. The corporate suites have interleading rooms which are good for couples with young children. Close to restaurants too.

Because our place to stay was nog available we choice via LekkeSlaap for Biggy's. Just because on the site of LekkeSlaap was mentioned that breakfast was included and diner possible. But unfortunately Both were not available. The room was allright, good bed and fine shower. Staff was friendly and helpfull. Next morning we were served a simpele breakfast we did not had to pay for. We had later, after being logged on the i-net, a problem : our own i-net provider had blocked our outgoing mail because of possible hack! So for us no more Biggy's Best Cottages.....The service rating we gave is mainly vader on the fact they advertise wifh meals hou van nog have. Not directly the staff.
