“Wonderful place deep in the mountains ”
Reviewed 20 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Stayed at Bidstone Cottages for 2 nights as part of the 4day Wartrail Skywalk. Great accommodation, really amazing food and amazing hosts Allan and Jules.
Allan was our guide for the Skywalk which is highly recommended. Make sure you get to see the Bushman art.

“Comfort Tranquility and Great services all in one”
Reviewed 12 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

I visited Bidstone as part of a group on a Road Trip through the Eastern Cape. We stayed at Bidstone Cottages for two nights and we all felt that we would have loved to stay longer. Allan and Jules went out of their way to make our stay memorable. The cottages are all very spacious and tastefully decorated. The fireplaces in two of the cottages are an absolute winner. The meals supplied was top class and there was not a single complaint after each meal which is not something that happens often with a group of people with varying dietary preferences. Bidstone is ideally situated close to the Tiffendale Ski Resort and Lesotho. I would love to return to Bidstone in future.

“Wonderful stay thank you”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed over a week end in July,it was cold! however ,Allan made us so welcome with his warm hospitality that the cold was forgotten about.
The setting is great the road there is fine from Barkley East the other roads just get Allans advise.
The rooms are cosy and warm ,Rossie the cleaning lady did a great job.Allan's wife made great cheesecake,thank you and we always felt so welcome.They took great care of all our needs.
In fact I think the rooms are to cheap they could charge more as it is real value for money.
Thank you for a great week end
