Very nice house with littles cottages, as their name, with all that you need for a quiet rest. The owners are a friendly couple that helps you with all your doubts to visit the beautiful Blyde river canyon.

We checked into the homely Blue Cottages after driving from Kruger Park. Set in a beautiful garden, the affable owners couple showed us to our cottage. Another couple was making use of what seemed like the communal outdoor dining facility which relegated us to eat off our laps under the huge rubber tree. The couple's music was playing rather loudly...

We stayed 3 nights at Blue Cottages (weaver's nest suite) and found it very comfortable. In this suite there is a big room with a double bed and 2 single beds, and plenty of space. There is a second room with 2 single beds, linked to the first room through a corridor that also has the bath room, which is...

We were really looking forward to our stay at Blue Cottages, and the greenery was fabulous after the barrenness all around. The grounds were impeccable and certainly deserve five stars. The room doesn't, though. We were in the self-catering room, and it was tired and needed some updating. That we could handle, but we were two adults. I slept on...

Lovely setting with huge trees in a lush green garden. We loved the farm atmosphere. The cottage was all we needed, clean, with a comfortable bed. We will use this place as a stop over again. Real value for money.

We stayed in Blue Cottages twice, before and after visiting the Kruger Park, and we enjoyed it a lot. Nice accommodation in a wonderful park full of old trees, some of which were very beautiful (said the botanist). Just like the houses, the park was spotlessly kept. We had dinner on both occasions and can recommend especially the beef, which...

The owners could not be there the night we slept over which was fine with us as they phoned before hand and apologized. The lady that welcomed us and served us breakfast wasn't friendly at all. She seemed irritated and made us feel that we were not welcome. I feel that she should not work with people and that she...

If only home was as beautiful and serene as this place. Surrounded by citrus orchards, there are mountains nearby to the West which provide the backdrop to majestic sunsets. Songbirds of many kinds reside here and serenade you at all times of day. The grounds are meticulously kept as are the accommodations. The breakfasts that are included and the optional...
