Thank you for the lovely stay at the motel, we loved the cute cottages and the lovely view! Also thank you for allowing us to "kuier" with the family at the cottages, it was a nice get-together for us.I also found the booking through Safari Now to be flawless and quick, thank you so much!Kindest regardsMarietha Albasini

We had a great stay. Everything was clean, the food was exactly as expected - good and wholesome with nothing fancy. The staff in the bar and dining room were fabulous. Friendly and full of good humour. Price was right and we thoroughly enjoyed staying at the same place that we had stayed at on our first night of marriage 50 years ago to the day. Very special.

Poor place to stay over. Some power plugs not operational. Bath and shower not practical. You have to stand in bath tub to open water taps. Shower head to low. Bump your head on ceiling when getting up from toilet. Window frames in bathroom totally rusted. Poor maintenance. Don't order food at their restaurant sub standard quality food. Rather buy take away food in van Reenen

We really enjoyed our stay after a long travel. On the positive , the personnel were fantastic. Friendly , very professional and helpful. On the negative side . We had dinner there but the food was really bad. Chicken snitchel and crumbed hake overdone , dry and not tasty.

We really enjoyed our stay at Pyramids!  We stayed over on our way to our holiday home in Shelly Beach.  Not only is it located in the beautiful mountains, but the chalets are so cute and unique.  We had the most AMAZING service from the staff, everyone working there is super friendly and willing to help.  When we checked out we had a misunderstanding about our outstanding balance we needed to pay and the receptionist had so much patience with us.  I would definitely recommend this amazing place to others passing through Van Reenen area.  We had a wonderful time!
