Loved everything about this place, friendly and helpful staff, comfortable accommodation, beautiful surroundings etc.. The only thing i could comment on is that we could not connect to the wifi at all, neither of friends who stayed upstairs and i really think that the rooms could do with a full length mirror. Besides those minor details, a wonderful stay

We had a very relaxing and peaceful staff at Rietvlei Country Estate. We were made to feel very welcomed and the accommodation far exceeded our expectations. The attention to detail is outstanding and the setting and outlook is stunning. We will definitely be back for another stay very soon.

As a family, we really enjoyed the experience. The atmosphere and accommodation and the little luxuries, was wonderful. More than satisfied.Ons as gesin het dit baie aangenaam gevind. Die atmosfeer en die verblyf en die klein bederfies in die kuis was wonderlik. Verby tevrede.
