We loved the fireplace.The mattresses are of good quality. Kitchen well equipped.Most of the sitting room furniture is sub-standard. The water pressure of the hot water system in the bathroom is VERY poor.

We loved the setting of Pumula, high up above the valley , with a superb view on Champagne, Cathkin Peak and the rest. The quiet environment and beautiful nature is breathtaking and unreal.

Perfect location for a Berg getaway! Views were incredible & was everything we needed. Was great during our stay, but may just be too cold in the middle of winter with no heaters, electric blankets or showers (baths only).

Incredible view of the Berg from this wooden Cottage. Big spacious rooms, bathrooms and living area with a fire place. Well equiped kitchen. Beautiful maintained garden and wooden table and seats for meals outside. Very quiet and peaceful. A Cottage with character and a history. Not luxurious but has everything you need. Poor internet reception in this part of the Berg. Will definately be back for the view and tranquility each year.

View was spectacular. Accommodation left a lot to be desired. A very old, poorly maintained building, with poor access.
