          TV set please....Breakfast is n important meal if Douglas Drift can consider the two then I would recommend it to my friendsLong gravel road.... But I don't think that can be dealt with

          Lovely setting, Great location. Close to activities & the spectacular Sani Pass. Short but steep hike to the river. Chalets are clean & services, although Sage is a tad small but great value. Communal kitchen & braai area was great although my only criticism would be the odd utensil was missing(colander, decent knives) but hardly worth mentioning. The only downside is there isn’t a swimming pool but as stated above this is balanced out by great value. Lastly fabulous hosts.

          Rosemary cottage was lovely decorated and comfortable. The bed was comfortable, the showers hot and the bedding clean. Sage room is not recommended for stay. The bed was hard, the hot water in basin did not work and shower was not working properly. This room is more like a khaya. And we paid the same price for this room as for Rosemary cottage. We used the weber braai for 2 nights. The kitchen was clean but there was no braai tongs.

          If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of life, then this is the place. Beautiful countryside, welcoming hosts a place to be quiet and relax next to the river and soak up the beauty. Great location to explore the rest of the berg or take a trip up to Sani pass. Will definitely visit here again.
