“Peace & quiet”
Reviewed 11 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

person found this review helpful

We spent two nights at this lodge. Here are the pros & cons of the place:

Pros:
If you look for peace & quiet in a safe environment in South Africa, you cannot beat this place.
The price is also unbeatable.
The self-catering suite we had was well-equipped, super clean and daily room service was available.
The bed was very comfortable and there was constant hot water and water pressure.
If you got a room closer to the left end, you had a good view too. If not, you had a roof in front of you!

Cons:
We were hoping to do some work in the quiet environment, but Wi-Fi situation was very unsatisfactory. It was available only in the small office, that too when the secretary was there. She left at 3.30p.m. Very disappointing.

There was only a very limited subscription to TV, so it was not conducive to settling down with a good movie in the evening.

Sitting-room was very uncomfortable with a stiff cane sofa, which gave me a backache.

All in all, the place is OK if you want to use it as a base to do sight-seeing around. For us, who come to South Africa very often, the lodge was a bit impractical.

“Peaceful location, very good accommodation, very helpful owner.”
Reviewed 6 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Stayed for 3 nights and used as a base to explore the local area. Wendel was very helpful and gave great advice about the local area, where to visit, eat etc. etc.
Chalets were very nice and only 10 mins stroll from the Berlin water falls.
It's an easy 5 min drive into Graskop to eat out and I think a better option than staying in town.

“Great Location”
Reviewed 18 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We only stayed here for 2 nights but could easily have stayed for longer, the chalet was clean, well furnished and lovely. The location of the property was great for visiting all the main sights of Blyde River Canyon and in walking distance of 2 waterfalls with beautiful views where the swimming is great, if a little cold! Wendel the owner is very friendly and helpful and is very knowledgeable. Definitely recommend this place to everyone!

“Friendly and relaxing”
Reviewed 14 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The lodges here are clean and well-maintained. The welcome is friendly and the large garden areas are ideal for children to play in safety. The lodges are a few kilometres outside of Graskop but that is a small sacrifice for the peace and quiet. Low levels of light pollution allow for star-gazing, normally best done with a glass of good red wine. The owners are able to organise various activities but that would be best done in advance. The lodges are just off the main road to all the major sites in the area. We didn't need it but there was an ample supply of wood for the log-burning stove in the living area. Very cosy in winter.
