Testimonials


Beautiful, quiet and peaceful oasis.

- Cathy,

We have just returned from a wonderful touring holiday of South Africa with Riviera Travel and had great pleasure in spending several days with you from 30th March to 1st April.

We were celebrating our 40th (ruby) wedding anniversary and would just like to thank you for making our stay with you so comfortable and enjoyable. What a very kind gesture to put a delicious bottle of bubbly and chocolates in our room. We were very touched and it made our stay so special.

Please pass on our thanks to your staff. We had a wonderful time and just hope one day we will have the opportunity of revisiting you. The room and view was beautiful, the food absolutely delicious and your staff couldn’t have been more helpful. Thank you for making our time with you so wonderful.

With very best wishes

Getting together with like-minded pilots is always a pleasure and I will continue to attend the Fly-Away for as long as I possibly can.

- JJ says after the Annual Battlefields Fly-in Event,

Samu was very efficient in her correspondence. They guy who checked us out on Sat am was also very efficient and friendly.

- Kenny,

Battlefields was great. Everything about it was beautiful; the staff, especially young Sbusiso, who made every effort to make me feel comfortable. The manager took time to find out about my stay. I thought that was great. Meals, both dinner & b/fast were fabulous. I’ll be back

- Leon Khumalo,

All my experience at your lodge is a highlight. Waking in a morning with animals roaming is superb too.

- Lorna,

The bar man who was on duty on Friday afternoon 25th May – a great young man indeed. The overall service from reception to kitchen, even the guy at the packing bays. It was awesome to see him stop what he was doing to show us where we could park to be closer to our room and walking us to the room. The highlight was for the owner to find time to come greet us and had a chat with us. That made us feel warmly welcomed. Thank you.

- Maria,

Food was great and what a Sunset over the dam.

- Mark,

Heaven on Earth. We were invited to a wedding and spent the Friday and Saturday night at the Lodge. The food was excellent and the staff very friendly. We had a fabulous weekend and I would recommend this to anyone who would like a weekend away in the country and if you are looking for a venue for a wedding, this is certainly one to consider. Such beautiful surrounding and immaculate gardens. Will definitely be back.

- Michie,

Mike and myself would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for a most memorable wedding. The VENUE, FOOD, STAFF all was just perfect. The compliments from the guest are still pouring in.
Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special.

- Mike and Charlene Batstone,

I would like to thank your staff for the most excellent time I spent at your lodge in early March. I stayed in Silo # 10. Excellent accommodation, ambience. I will certainly tell all my work mates of my travels and your location.

- Murray Peecock,

My Weekend Fly-In to Battlefields. As a low hour Pilot stretching his wings to his first fly in destination, the welcome and assistance at Battlefields made my trip memorable, and having a bit of wind, my aircraft was secured by the friendly staff giving me peace of mind so I could enjoy my stay at this beautifully kept Country Lodge. The reception at Battlefields was Exceptional, The accommodation and the ever helpful staff made our stay heavenly. The warm cosy beds in clean rooms gave us a wonderful nights sleep. Evenings are spectacular. A tranquil place to take the whole family, very safe, and the personal Managerial hand, kept any unpleasantness far away. To the owners, Sir I salute you on a well run establishment. I will recommend your place anytime.

- Naren,

There was a young man that cleaned our vehicle daily. Amazing personality and service. Was so surprised and very, very pleased. He’s the kind of person that should man reception with his personality and language skills, and telling us to travel safely and stop if we tired, was amazing.

- Neels,
The lady at reception, sorry I don’t know her name. Her welcome was incredibly warm and she made us feel at home immediately. She was also very helpful in showing us around the property and to our rooms. To be fair, all of the staff were great.
Great place, great staff, situated in a wonderful part of the world.
- Richard,

Sadly I can’t identify the lady at reception, but when my sister and I (who are both in our 70s) checked in, the receptionist actually walked us out through the back to our rooms. Much appreciated.

- Roger,

This resort is of a high standard. I have been to other places and this resort is of a high standard. Keep up the good work. I will gladly come back to this place and also recommend.

- Sagie Ponnan,

Thank you so much for your assistance and speedy response. I would like to recommend your establishment for being proactive and promoting excellent service.
I will definitely use your establishment in the near future.
