Our double en-suite room (R650 on), was clean and comfortable, though getting in and out of the toilet/shower room was rather tight, and there was little room to put things if you're are travelling with much luggage.  The self-catering kitchen was extremely poorly stocked both with pans and utensils ( only I fork).  There were no mugs for a hot drink in the morning, though I was given some on asking.  It is the poorest supplied I have encountered; my impression is they wished you to buy the meals on offer, but this may not be the case.  The initial booking contact was most positive, but sadly...

I have stayed at Tube & Axe a number of times. It is always clean and pleasant. I really like their new addition of the swimming pool and deck area as well as the protected fire pit area, although this tends to get very smokey at night.The staff are always friendly and helpful at Tube 'n Axe.

Our ensuite room was very nice and clean, but the communal kitchen was an absolute unhygienic mess which was very off putting to use. We would not stay here again.

South Africa’s most frequently hiked trail is so popular that bookings need to be made at least a year in advance – but don’t let that stop you. The dramatic setting of luxuriant Tsitsikamma forest meeting the rugged Indian Ocean coastline in the...
