We spent 4 nights in your Kilns units, although spacious we found them a little cold compared to the hotel rooms. The position was also a little tucked away.All in all the hotel and facilities were superb, the spa was awesome, the food fattening and the children has a great time fishing off the barge and visiting the farm yard.

Pleasant accommodation

Our stay was great, the food was excellent. We were however not aware that the restaurant was not serving the normal menu as it was fathers day, and the buffet they had was a little cold by the time we arrived. They did however accommodate us and the food they prepared was great. Carin, my wife spent the morning at the Spa and says it was the best massage she had ever had, and she's had a few. Overall our stay was very pleasant and we would certainly go there again.

Place was good. 10kms from Kruger but easy drive up there. Food was excellent as was dinner service. Reception was let down, girls there didnt know much about activities and if it wasnt in the book of info they didnt help much. Pool area is nice but only 4 loungers for 60+ rooms!!Would not revisit but wouldnt say dont stay there. Would say this is a comfortable 2 star resort only, nothing like a 4 star for us.If your going there to be near Kruger leave hotel by half five, drive is 45 mins to the Gate. Spa on site was excellent.

It was wonderful to experience the peace of TCL. Food was excellent and I would like to congratulate the Staff - in particular Mpume at reception and the restaurant Manager. Friendly, helpful and nice to talk to. Will definitely visit again when possible.
