We booked a room with patio. The room we were given was 48B which is in a cottage with 2 other room. The walls are paper thin which means we can hear everything from the other room. Unfortunately our next door neighbor had two small children and even tho they tried their best to keep the noise level low we could still hear everything. It was suppose to be a romantic getaway but we ended up having to walk on eggshells. We felt that the wide angle picture also made the rooms look bigger than they were. The room we stayed at was smaller than most other hotels while the bathroom was pretty big. The room we were given also had no aircon and it was 1degree that night with only a small portable heater fan. From the picture we assumed we would have a view of the lake but our room was blocked by 2 cottages in front. That said, the location of the resort was good and there were many activities but unfortunately for us it rained so there was not much to do in the resort.

Amazing Stay but ensure you check out at 10am.
We had 2 chalets booked and really enjoyed ourselves. The chalets are large, well laid out and very comfortable. the property as well has lots to do for the family and very clean. The only thing I was upset about was when we went to check out around 10.50am, we were told that we needed to pay R150 per chalet for the late check out. I told the lady at the reception that this was the first I heard of it and this was not mentioned to us when we checked in, on the website or in the envelope which was given to us. Usually all the resports I go to, in the envelope which is accompanied with the keys, there is a letter with information such as special activities, special dinners or other important relevant information. All the lady said was on the confirmation it stated there that check out is at 10.00am. I fully agree we were in the wrong and would have paid this had it been mentioned to us. I have stayed at many resorts and hotels worldwide and not once was I asked to pay additional funds for checking out less than an hour after cut off.

Excellent well maintained and clean accommodation. Spectacular location with beautiful views. Great activities on site. Would recommend a trip there. Reception a little short on courtesy and friendliness. Coffee shop closes a bit early at 5pm. Poorly communicated activity times as the beach club turned us away at 4pm and made a few sarcastic comments when we returned at 3:15 pm for any hire activities on the dam. But the official closing time is 5pm. WiFi blocks video streaming so if your work needs YouTube or Khan academy or if you just want to enjoy Netflix it won't work. Apparently they were upgrading so we had intermittent connectivity
