Baie slegte pad na die verblyf. Het 'n band gebars op die pad.

Kamer was baie klein. Net een kussing per persoon is voorsien. Die duvet wat voorsien was, was heeltemal te klein vir die bed en vir twee mense. Die koffie, suiker ens. wat voorsien was, was baie oud. Ons was sonder krag vir 'n lang ruk en geen kerse of bystaanlig of verduideliking is verskaf nie.

Very bad road to the accommodation. Got a flat tire on the way.

Room was very small. Only one pillow per person is provided. The duvet provided was far too small for the bed and for two people. The coffee, sugar etc. what was provided was very old. We were without power for a long time and no candles or emergency light or explanation was provided.

Blyde River Cabin 's response

Hi Fanie, ons streef daarna om al ons kliente gelukkig te hou en ons is baie jammer om te hoor jy het nie jou tyd by ons geniet nie. Ons wens jy het jou probleme aan ons genoem tydens jou verblyf hier, dan sou ons dit met graagte uitsorteer het. Ons as eienaars woon op die perseel en is 24 uur per dag beskikbaar en op bystand om al ons gaste gelukkig te hou. Ons is net n Whatsapp boodskap weg. Die 12km grondpad na die verblyf is glad nie so sleg nie, solank mens net stadig ry en dit as deel van die avontuur na n pragtige plek met ongerepte natuurskoon geniet. Ons ontvang baie gaste met gewone sedan motors met geen probleme nie. Soos per epos genoem stel ons wel voor dat 'n mens nie opdaag met n baie lae sport tipe motor of karavaan nie. As n 3-ster TGCSA gegradeerde fasiliteit, voldoen al ons eenhede aan die vereistes en word akkuraat beskryf op al ons advertensies. Al ons slaapkamers, bedde en linne is standaard groottes. As gevolg van Covid veiligheids vereistes het ons alle extra linne en kussings uit ons eenhede verwyder en dit is enige tyd beskikbaar op aanvraag. Ons koffie, suiker, ens. is standaard geseelde sakkies wat se BB datums nie oorskry is nie. Net soos die res van SA het ons van tyd tot tyd krag onderbreukings, daar is twee nood lampe onder die TV in elke eenheid en ons het krag opwekkers beskikbaar vir nood gevalle of op aanvraag.

Pragtig en gesellig.

Die verblyf is netjies en skoon. Die natuur is pragtig en die rustigheid was kos vir my siel. Die bord vir die afdraai is onduidelik van Hoedspruit se kant af en het ons hom misgery, maar gelukkig het ons veilig na die cabin gery nadat ’n drop pin vir ons gestuur is. Sal beslis weer gaan kuier.

Beautiful and cozy.

The accommodation is neat and clean. The nature is beautiful and the tranquility was food for my soul. The sign for the turn off is unclear from Hoedspruit's side and we missed it, but luckily we drove safely to the cabin after a drop pin was sent to us. Will definitely visit again.

Baie rustig.

Baie mooi en lekker plek. Alles skoon en netjies met alle geriewe. Die pad na die cabin is nie in goeie toestand nie maar begaanbaar. Lae grondvryhoogte-voertuie sal sukkel. Die dubbelbed in een van die kamers is baie ongemaklik en kort aandag. Sal die cabin wel aanbeveel vir sy ligging en netheid. Baie rustig en gerieflik.

Very peaceful.

Very nice place. Everything clean and tidy with all amenities. The road to the cabin is not in good condition but passable. Low ground clearance vehicles will struggle. The double bed in one of the rooms is very uncomfortable and needs attention. Would recommend the cabin for its location and cleanliness. Very peaceful and convenient.

Very peaceful yet interesting surroundings. Very nice and helpful people/owners.

The family and I enjoyed our time at Blyde River cabin. It was both peaceful and interesting because of the wildlife. We enjoyed walking in the woods that surrounds the cabin. The cabin had all amenities including cable TV (we never turned on the TV). I would recommend the cabin to anyone and plan to return for a longer period of time.

Wonderlike wegbreek naweek.

Wat 'n oulike plek! So goed ingerig, met 'n ruim dek waarop mens die heeldag kan sit en vir die natuur kan kyk. Perfekte ligging, en absoluut privaat. Ek sal hierdie eenheid hoogs aanbeveel vir enige iemand wat 'n naweek in die natuur wil hê. Die grondpad is ook nie so sleg nie, ons kon redelik maklik met ons Corolla ry.

Pragtige ligging op die Blyderivier. Gay en Willem is ongelooflike gashere en sal regtig die ekstra myl vir jou loop. Alles was 100%. Die chalet het alles en nog meer in wat jy sal nodig kry. Heerlike ontspannende naweek. Ons sal definitief weer terug wees.

Ek en my vrou het al op baie plekke gebly, maar nie een was so goed toegerus soos hierdie nie. Die grondpad na hulle is nie baie goed nie, maar dit vat niks weg van die rustigheid en ongelooflike vriendelike diens nie. Definitief 5 plus sterre!

Great amenties, good people, but bad roads (needs a 4x4).

Great place if you want seclusion and a bushveld experience. However, beware of the gravel road. It is 12 km long and terrible in places. I would recommend a 4x4 to get there.

Die plek is baie goed toegerus - sekerlik een van die beste selfsorg plekkies ooit! Daar is 'n groot yskas!

Rustig, ontspannend en net die plek vir 'n natuurliefhebber.

Met die water wat rustig kabbel in die agtergrond, die geraas van die bobbejane en 'n duiker wat rustig verkeer net onder die dek, kan jy waarlik ontspan. Die vriendelikheid en toegewydheid van die eienaars maak die tydjie daar onvergeetbaar.

Dit was baie lekker en baie rustig. Hier kan mens weer heel word, dis asof tyd gaan stil staan. Die lugversorgers in die slaapkamers help geweldig as dit so warm is, en 'n waaier in die leefvertrek sou baie gehelp want daar word dit lekker warm. Baie goed toegerus. Mens kom niks kort nie en die ekstras is baie spesiaal. Die bederf met ons huweliksherdenking was besonders, dankie!
