A place where you can breath and relax. Excellent value for money with friendly staff and great food. They go out of their way to make sure all your needs are met. Amazing Lake Side rooms ! Great view ! I cannot wait to return. I was on a business trip but I did not want to return home.

Dear Wynona14 Thank you for taking the time to score your stay with us. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. "Want to increase your step count" - I had a good chuckle about that. Yes, indeed, the labyrinth is a good 1.9kms of walking in a large circle. Hope to see you soon again. Best Regards Kloppenheim Management

Beautiful setting and the chalets are really well appointed. All the basics are there and would rank as the nicest chalets we have visited. Didn't have much time to utilise any of the facilities but overall it was really nice. Unfortunately never got to utilise the spa facilities as no appointments were available.

Hidden on a mountain and only few hours from Pretoria next to N 4. Very clean and comfort accommodation. Lost to do for the active visitor, hiking, horse riding, fishing and many more. For the more private, a safe place to relax .

Dear Joeboy69 Thank you for your excellent review, but also your brilliant recommendations. We have removed the gas-fireplace about 3 years ago already. A Braai is just better when you use charcoal or wood. Regarding you disappointment with the food received. I am so sorry that you were not informed that we have a la carte options available as well....
