The resort is located 20 min drive from Winterton. There are many activities for everyone, games room for children , mini golf , easy access to the small dam where one can row one of the small boats . Bowls green, tennis court and a small spa are conveniently located in the resort.
There are 4 easy hikes within the resort , my favourite being the blue grotto, which is a 2 hr hike through lots of overhanging trees alongside a river.
Within walking distance is a horse riding facility and for the more adventurous , a canopy tour over the tree tops of the hike to the grotto.

A few minutes drive one will find more adventure by riding scooters down the mountain or white water rafting.

One can visit the drakensburg Boys choir and sometimes even get to watch them rehearse,or visit the bird sanctuary where the rehabilitate Eagle , hawks and many other birds of prey

Stayed: July 2018

Lovely hotel with staff that are ever ready to help. By far the best breakfast and dinner buffet's I've ever had. Such a wide variety and so sumptuous. The trout and the spicy lamb sausages are a must try. The mini spa at the pool side is to die for. Had such a relaxing weekend.

Definitely not a 5 or 4 star hotel, no lifts, old and dirty carpents. My sinus were on overdrive. Really sick because of the dirty carpets. Asked them to vacuum but when we got back to the room 3 hours later, there was so much dust and dirt under the beds. Not very accomodating restaurant and bar, had to eat breakfast offsite because they closed breakfast 45 mins earlier before the closing time. Bar tenders not friendly and speak to in their local languages. Gave us incorrect billings at the end. Not worth it at all.
