We are so happy visiting Chestnut country lodge. Nice rooms and a beautifull garden with swimmingpool. Breakfast and meals were excellent. Our host Christien and her assistant did a lot of work to get our luggage lost at the airport of Paris to transport to the Chestnut. We hope to visit Chestnut in the future

Very nice lodge, great view, kind staff, good food and very good wine. The staff is really interested in you and gave us good tips for things to do. Go for the panorama route and take money with you for paying that the gates of the mini parks underway. For lunch take a pancake at Harry's in Graskop.

Received great personal service from the owner/manager throughout the stay - very friendly and helpful. Rooms were neat and tidy - modest accommodation. Repairs done to adjacent room during our stay was a bit noisy early in the morning. Great view on the veranda. Lovely breakfast daily. Enjoyed the peacefulness of the bush veld.
