Special thanks to Holgar the owner, Hilda the head chef and Natasha for making our stay a memorable one. Our cottage was upgraded to the Zebra room,superb! The breakfast and dinner were just great! Special chocolate cake was baked for my sister. The kids enjoyed the pool and trail walking, I loved the quad biking. Overall friendly staff. Worth traveling to all the way fro Pretoria.

The Acra Retreat is one of my favorite places to stay. They have a downstairs section with a communal bathroom, but with 3 rooms in the section (one is a master bedroom) it makes for a good family settlement. There is a cabin for a family as well and single rooms. The meals are amazing, with the passionate chef working hard- the result is an amazing meal served with love. The view is a perfect panorama- you have no excuse not to go just for that. The rooms are neat, ergonomic and clean. The pool appears to be fine though we did not use it. There are also two dogs- Susy and Mika, that are nice companions. Then there is Doodle the bird. But don't worry, the critters will respect your privacy. (Doodle is forced too, being in a a cage and all). There is a nice bar as well. And, the premises are gated to there is a strong electric fence between you and possible robbers. The wifi is free for the first hour, so know that.

One of the best lodges we have been to. The most freindly people, best service and awesome views. The food is to die for. So rarely does one see a chef with a true passion for what they do. Will never forget this place and their manager. Very clean, comfortable and spacious rooms. Great little bar. Excellent restaurant. Definitely worth it.

Guys this is so bad that you can have a lodge where everybody is having some good reviews about but no one can get hold you...on your landline number (yes the one you've posted on your site) I 've sent couple of emails requesting some help on my booking neither of you have responded. 'm not sure now, perhaps your lines are not working or whatsoever but someone should have told the public that your lines are out. I wanted to make some booking online but the moment I've noticed that I can't reach your lodge telephonically...I became sceptical and worse cos you don't even reply to any of methods of communication you've listed as your contact details. DisappointedVince

! What a fantastic B&B ! The most amazing Panorama. Really wonder full Rooms. Lavish Breakfasts & Sensational Food. Also a Great Bar. But the most important is the homely atmosphere. You don't feel like in a hotel, but visiting your Family. We left having made new Friends in not just the owners, but also the absolutely friendly and helpful staff.I can only recommend it to everyone. I first booked only one night, but extended for another 2 days (and cancelled my other reservations) We were not one moment bored, as there were many activities to do and interesting & beautuful sites to visit. 10 out of 10
