The entire experience was really terrible, no value for money what so ever. The impression once there was to try and milk the consumer for all they are worth. You pay all immediately on arrival. They even charged for a single allergy tablet. It was just horrendous. The food mediocre at best and the warm pools? I wouldn't be able...

We had one night in our newly restored unit at the baths and found it most relaxing. Reception was easy and relaxed. If you need hot water and nature to restore your soul, this place will be it! OUR UNIT was lovely and most comfortable, just loved the indoor huge mineral bath tub -giant size. A touch of 'plaas' for...

This historical spa is the perfect retreat to wind down and take in the fresh air of the Klein Karoo! We especially love the trail over the hill, covered with geological and volcanic treasures followed by the healing waters!

Had an amazing time. Although basic, all facilities are adequate and kept clean at all times. Spent a lazy afternoon in the hot water pool while the air temperature bairly reached 10 degrees. Was a fantastic contrast in temperatures. Restaurant is definitely good value for money, and the meal provided was a good hearty traditional Karoo meal. Loved every moment...

It looks shambles. Staff is friendly ..pool is OK but the campsite looks bad. Sites are long and narrow..so one ends up close to Ines neighbour. The ablution block is really below standards...no privacy ..one has to step out of the shower in view of the others...only one tap...no temperature control....and we had no warm water...

We camped one night with a group of 10 people. We had a large grass area to ourselves. The other camp sites seems a bit small and squashed in. The place made me a bit sad, a bit "run-down". We had an ok meal at the restaurant, after waiting a very long time, but they did not charge us corkage....

Shocking accommodation - nr 7 wooden chalet!!! Paid R1050 per night. Stove hadn't been cleaned. The inside of the bottle they used to put dishwashing liquid was not appealing at all. Didn't bother wiping shelf on mirror where toothpaste was on. Dishes were not clean. A place can be old, but it must definitely be clean. Such an amazing venue...

We stayed in nr 1 a two room "Wendy House". Paid R750 for the night, over priced considering what we paid in Oudtshoorn at 4Star Guesthouse... R850 for one night, including Breakfast. But we were game for the experience! The food deserve a 5 Stars rating and Hendrik in the restaurant area needs mentioning. Great guy! Warmwaterberg Spa is part...

The accommodation is clean, but very basic, and equipped with all you need for self catering. Very dated decor. Outside barbeque. There are seperate large bathrooms at the bath house. The bath is a very deep concrete construction with stairs and you can fill it with hot mineral water up to your neck while standing. Quiet and relaxing getaway! Good...

We stayed in Bath House #1 this time - its an old structure - clean and comfortable. The best part is the kitchen - it has an open fireplace as well as a big deep bath - so you can soak in the heated waters, drinking a glass of wine, watching the flames - absolute bliss and completely private.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Warmwaterberg Spa is a hot mineral spring situated between Barrydale and Ladismith on the R62 from Cape Town to Oudtshoorn. The spa offers self catering accommodation in old farm house buildings dating back to the 19th century, timber chalets sleeping 4 – 8 persons and some parked caravans. The kiosk is stocked with basic provisions and the bottle store stocks local wines. The Lapa has a restaurant offering country fare and a bar. There are three outdoor pools, two hot and one cold. The temperature in the pools varies from 25 to 42 degrees C. For those who would like to explore the vast outdoors, there is a hiking trail on the property as well as drives to nearby mountains and town.
