I looked for camping place on our road trip to the West Coast and by chance phoned The Baths and was so lucky to get the last campsite. We ended up staying the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed every minute! Campsite 1-10 I think is the best as it closest to the pools & reception as it's quite an uphill if... More

The baths is one of my favourite camping spots!, I would say the best-camping spots is 3 till 10 because is close to everything, under the trees and away from road. The Baths have pool tables, table tennis, hot pool, coldish pool, hot baths, Rock pools ,hiking routes and tennis courts (bring own racket and ball). If you get the... More

We stayed at The Baths in February 2015 and returned recently for another slice of heaven. Once again, we enjoyed the natural mineral pools, one hot another cold. The newly-restored chalet, with well-equipped kitchen, private jacuzzi and braai area, was spotlessly clean and well-maintained, with beautiful views of the valley and distant mountains, surrounded by fields of citrus trees. All... More

Tried to book in for a couple of days from 5th Feb. to the 7th Feb 2016 but they were fully booked so we went there for the day and was very disappointed changing rooms are disgusting and all the accommodation is to close together in our opinion and very claustrophobic glad we found out before booking another time

It was very relaxing experience. The unit we stayed at was very lovely, seems as if just been renovated, and staff was very friendly and accommodating. Cons: would be nice to have more hot spring baths. We stayed Monday-Tuesday and it was busy, i can only imagine how it would have been on the weekend... People come here for hot... More

Being forever on the search for hot springs, we were overjoyed to discover that Citrusdal was a mere 60km from our accommodation in Clanwilliam. It took merely a day in advance to book telephonically, and what a wonderful surprise we were met with when we arrived. As day visitors we were only too happy to have the less-discovered hot water...

This is a very old facility but beautifully maintained. There are two major pools - one cool water, one nearly spa hot. We had to make a reservation even for day use but it is easy enough to do. It's not totally clear where things are or where you change into your suit but you'll figure it out. Good idea... More
