Very good self catering facilities and very comfortable accommodation. We had a lovely view of the dam and enjoyed a late afternoon stroll to watch the sunset. We were pleasantly surprised to find a restaurant on site and the staff there are very friendly.

Service good from reservation to the check out. Chalets well equipped, clean + comfortable. Have been a few times but think its the first time booking through SA Places and Ilze was very helpful.

The facilities and everything was great. We had a great stay and the people were very helpful and friendly. We requested a late check-out because we were there for a cycle race and they were happy to accommodate us. We will definitely return.
