We booked three nights here originally but the rooms are so comfortable and luxurious, we decided to prolong our stay. Although 'just' a standard room, there is a super-king sized bed surrounded by a mosquito net, a spacious bathroom, a living room and a terrace with beautiful views. However, what really made our stay was Rob's welcome and his helpful...

A nice place to stay when looking for accommodation in Hazyview area. We stayed in a king size bed suite, which was really comfortable and clean. Our two other guests stayed in a two bed room, with a view of the valley and the Panorama Route. Breakfast was divine and the atmosphere relaxing and peaceful! Rob and Dawn are very...

Dawn and Rob are utterly kind and welcoming people who will provide excellent service. The cottage we stayed in was just great. One might even say luxurious. It had some vintage influences which makes you think you went a couple of decades back in time. Especially when it's storming outside. The view completes it. Very romantic! Oh and the breakfast....

We stayed in the Honeymoon Cottage at Ashbourne and it really was perfect in so many ways. Upon arrival we were greeted by Rob who was and remained an absolute pleasure throughout our stay; making himself available for any request large or small and providing us with all the information, tips, maps, guides and recommendations we could possibly need.

There are nice places to stay in Hazyview area but Ashbourne is probably one of the best due to the quality of accommodation. The view over the hills surrounding is amazing and the bungalows are so nicely and well furnished. Harmony, peace and friendly guests and staff make it an ideal place for taking a rest of visiting Kruger, the...

On the 17th November 2016, my colleagues and I slept in Ashbourne Lodge. The lady that is managing the place is racist. For the very first time in my life I heard a person called us "you type of people" just because we are black and we are not from overseas. She also told us that she is glad that...

Racist? No. Behaviourist? Yes. By arriving after 23h00 without any consideration for the other guests, and spending half an hour having a loud debate over "why you have to leave the TV on all night so that you can sleep," is really not "the type of people" we want here. We are not prepared to have our guests stay jeopidized...

We arrived at Ashbourne on 30th oct 2 days after our wedding to begin our honeymoon. As soon as we pulled into the drive we knew it was going to be good! Situated on top of a hill with a fantastic view Ashbourne is certainly somewhere special. Rob was pool cleaning but stopped to not only show us our lodge...

First of all Hazyview is the perfect place to explore the Kruger Park as well as the Blyde River Canon. The Ashbourne is situated beautifully above the city (only five minutes to the city center where you find many restaurants and stores). Rob and Dawne are the greatest host ever! They prepared us lovely picknicks for our early morning game...
