We stayed just one night found it charming, the room larger than expected, the bathroom quirky but all in all very satisfactory. It is quiet and a bit of a walk away from the general store. Rafters, it's restaurant is terrific as noted by difficulty in getting a table (popular place and best in town), breadth of menu and quality...

I booked this place under the belief that it was 4.5 stars. It was a very dull experience. The rooms were damp, the pool was tiny and tired and the food was less than average. It was the one disappointment we had on our trip to South Africa.

A quaint hotel handy for everything on offer in Stormsriver. The rooms are a bit tired and would benefit from some maintenance. Food on offer was not too bad although they little to to offer a vegetarian despite having provided advance request. Watch out for the cheeky monkeys!!

Lovely rooms, comfortably furnished with that combination of comfortably old school and modern functionality. Definitely recommend for a romantic getaway in a cozy forest retreat. Food is also excellent with very friendly staff and manager Hano. Loads to do in the area.

Excellent restaurant, so we ended up having all our dinners at Rafters. Only disappointment was that most of the wines listed were out all 3 evenings. If you have the chance book the Candlewood apartment, a unique hideaway. Superb location for exploring Stormsriver adventures.

Property is situated in lovely gardens at the entrance to storms River village. Staff and the breakfast were excellent. Room was well maintained and comfortable, but also a bit dated. My only main negatives were that the room was a bit dark because of the large vine growing over the patio, and was also a little damp (although it did...

The bassin in the bathroom is on knee height and there were no glasses for the tootbrush and very limited soap and shampoo. We staye d 2 nights and nothing was changed or added. Why an extra...

Dear Yvette: Thank you for your recent review! Harsh but fair - not so sure? but Yes! We are gradually upgrading! Builders are in short supply in our rather remote Village. Wine list is sophisticated, but wines had been consumed with great speed & alacrity through a busy Festive Season. You and your Guests arrived as we tapered off Business...
