Amazing setting! Amazing place! Would definitely go back again! Perfect! The view of the Berg from the pool is wonderful. We had a great time. Just wished we had booked for longer. Everyone had a great time.

We ended a five day hike at bushman's nek. The staff was welcoming and friendly on arrival, even though we were soaked from a thunderstorm that had just broke. The room and bed were extremely comfortable and the shower nice and hot. The food was pretty basic "pub grub", i think the resort is more geared to the self catering...

I was happy with everything. The log cabins are rustic but that is what I wanted. They do need a few extra pots and crockery and cutlery. The staff were friendly and housekeeping was great. Very child friendly, daily activities for kids and adults and the entertainment zone was great. The Spa was absolutely divine

Nice place to stay for a few days. The views are brilliant. Lots to do whilst you are there. Very good swimming pool for adults and children. The food is good and at a competative price. Think some of the rooms are in need of a face lift as they are looking tired. I'm sure this will be done if...

Great location. Perfect natural surroundings. Perfect place to relax. Very friendly staff. Great service and food. Left feeling rejuvenated. The rooms were large and very comfortable. The dirt road there was a big hairy but a small price to pay for what lay at the end.

Wonderful location, great setting, good rooms. We would go back. We found the restaurant gave us a slow service and the food was disappointing: overcooked fish/meat and vegetables on the 3 lunch/evening meals, we ate. The restaurant was not busy at the times.
