Our stay was very comfortable and luxurious, accommodation was very clean and beautiful. We had the two bedroom apartment, we even enjoyed braaing. It was very cold on arrival but the gas fireplace was a warm welcome. Breakfast was delicious.Will definitely return.

The destination, location and vista of the accommodation at Simola is truly breathtaking. The facilities are fantastic and the staff, especially on the Golf club side, were outstanding. One major issue was how cold the rooms were. Even with their heating system, the bedroom was arctic, even with an extra blanket it was too cold to sleep well. On my arrival my booking wasn't in the system, even when I'd spoken to the reservations team the day before to ensure payment had been received. When I went for breakfast on both mornings, my room wasn't listed so I had to wait both times before I could sit. Lastly, on arrival my room wasn't cleaned properly either - there was a half drunk bottle of water in the fridge, items in the rubbish bin and the patio was still littered with bird poo. Not ideal, however, the pure beauty of the view, the rooms and the golf course will ensure I return.

This was a very luxurious getaway over a long weekend. The room is huge and luxurious, boasting a fully fitted kitchen, dining room, lounge, bedroom and big bathroom with separate sinks for 2 people, a separate shower and big bath. The views from the huge balcony, which has its own braai, is magnificent. We had a fabulous couple's massage and spent a lot of time in the heated inside pool and sauna, which was a treat. The food was great and room service came very quickly. The staff were very friendly and assisted us with whatever we needed. i highly recommend Simola for a few days' getaway.

Room tip: All rooms are good and boast magnificent views.
