We had such a lovely time in this cottage with my partner and friends. The electrical blankets and heaters were just a cherry on top. Lucy was so welcoming and she surely does know how to treat guests. Marcelle was very caring and helpful too.

The place is such a great getaway area.

Thanks you Marcelle and Lucy

Both the cottages available at The Ponds were robbed on the weekend we stayed over. The care-taker failed to notify us when the 1st cottage was robbed nor did she arrange additional security. This resulted in our cottage being robbed later that same day. We only found out about the first robbery at the police station whilst filing a 2nd report for the same property.

We absolutely LOVED our stay at the Ponds, the people were very friendly on the property (and so were the doggies) and it was very private and just quaint. It was so relaxing and close to all the other hotel resorts, and walks which made it very easy to get around. The cottage itself is perfect for 4 people to stay, very comfortable beds and spacious inside. The cottage is Incredibly well furnished and equipped with everything one needs in the kitchen. The only negative would be all the bugs in the house, but if you staying in the Drakensberg, I guess that's expected.

Excellent location, outstanding service, a gem.

Truly an amazing place to stay. So peaceful, and with-in close range off outdoor activities if you need some action. The dogs are a pure please and the best trained I have seen in a long time. We will be back.
