Ongelooflike mooi.

Daar is WiFi, maar sein is baie swak en die WiFi werk nie juis nie, alhoewel dit realisties is vir tussen die berge, dit skep ook darm die ideale geleentheid vir rus en wegbreek.

Unbelievably beautiful.

There is Wi-Fi, but the signal is very weak and the Wi-Fi doesn't really work, although it is realistic for between the mountains, it also creates the ideal opportunity for rest and break away.

Asemrowende natuurskoon.

Die pad na die lodge is sleg met los klippe en plek-plek uitstaande rotse. Beslis nie geskik vir stadsvoertuie nie. Ons was vriendelik verwelkom by Ontvangs, en verduidelik hoe om by die Forest Cottage uit te kom. Die houthuis was netjies en skoon met aankoms, maar lyk verwaarloos. Die hout kort behandeling, die voordeur maak moeilik oop en toe, en die toilet se basis lek water op die vloer. Knaagdiere het aan ons brood en beskuit geëet deur die nag, so maak seker alles is in houers wat kan toemaak. Die laaste kritiek is dat die wandelpaaie swak gemerk is met te min aanduidings, veral op pad terug van die waterval af. Die positiewe is die asemrowende natuurskoon en voëllewe in die kloof. Ons het ook rietbokke, bosbokke, otters, dassies, bobbejane, blouape en die arende gesien. Nog 'n pluspunt is dat die Forest Cottage dierevriendelik is - my bull terrier het dit net so geniet. Die ligging en natuurskoon is uitsonderlik, en maak 'n besoek aan Forest Creek die moeite werd. Spesiale dank aan die staf van die oord wat uit hulle pad gaan om jou besoek so aangenaam moontlik te maak. Laastens - neem maar addisionele beligting saam, daar is nie 'n alternatief vir beurtkrag nie.

Breathtaking scenery.

The road to the lodge is bad with loose stones and protruding rocks in places. Definitely not suitable for city vehicles. We were kindly welcomed at Reception, and explained how to get to the Forest Cottage. The log house was neat and clean on arrival, but looks neglected. The wood needs treatment, the front door is difficult to open and close, and the base of the toilet is leaking water onto the floor. Rodents ate our bread and crackers through the night, so make sure everything is in containers that can be closed. The last criticism is that the walking paths are poorly marked with too few indications, especially on the way back from the waterfall. The positives are the breathtaking scenery and birdlife in the gorge. We also saw reedbucks, bushbucks, otters, badgers, baboons, blue monkeys and the eagles. Another plus is that the Forest Cottage is pet friendly - my bull terrier enjoyed it just as much. The location and scenery are exceptional, and make a visit to Forest Creek worthwhile. Special thanks to the resort staff who go out of their way to make your visit as pleasant as possible. Finally - take additional lighting with you, there is no alternative to load shedding.

Dear Johan, thank you for taking the time to write this review. It is always helpful to have your input. We have a collection service for those who drive small vehicles. The issues you mentioned have been dealt with, thank you, I am happy that you got to see so many animals and birds, and on that subject your nightly greedy visitors are Door mice, the ones with the fluffy tails, I have one that comes in my lounge at night to steal the cat food! right in
front of my eyes, I do not have the heart to trap him (Yet), however we did manage to trap 4 at the cottage. As to why you were not given lamps for the loadshedding, I will have to find out, as we do have recharable lamps that work during loadshedding.
Happy that your bull terrier had fun too.

Thank you for the nice comments on my staff, the Forest creek family.

Best wishes

Dit is 'n baie lekker plek of af te skakel van die gemeenskap om lekker te rus.

Ons as familie kon lekker afskakel en rus. Kon ook die lekker wandelroetes stap. Daar moet net aandag gegee word aan maintenance van die plek bv. die bossies voor die beach house en die hoofontvangs trim sodat 'n mens 'n lekker uitsig oor die berge kan hê. Die wandelroetes moet ook bietjie beter gemerk word.

Translate to English.

It is a very nice place to disconnect from the community to have a good rest.

We as a family could switch off and rest. Could also walk the nice hiking trails. Attention should only be paid to maintenance of the place, e.g. the bushes in front of the beach house and the main reception are trimmed so that one can have a nice view of the mountains. The walking routes also need to be marked a little better.

Rustigheid vir die siel, maar eers moet jy daar kom!

Die pad is nie geskik vir alle voertuie nie. Slegs 4x4! Forest Creek Lodge sal moet plan maak om gaste met 'n shuttle-diens by die lodge te kry teen geen ekstra kostes. Dit vat mens amper 24 uur net om oor die trauma van die pad te kom voor jy eers kan ontspan en dan begin jy alweer stres oor die pad af! Ons het verder heerlik gebly. Die cottage was skoon en gerieflik. Die verwelkoming was nie na wense nie, maar June en Sibongile het die res van die naweek opgemaak vir dit, deur hul goeie diens en mooi gesindheid. WiFi werk glad nie en daar was geen Vodacom-sein nie. Dankie Forest Creek dat ons jul natuurskoon kon beleef. Dit was die hoogtepunt. Salige stilte!

Peace of mind, but first you have to get there!

The road is not suitable for all vehicles. 4x4 only! Forest Creek Lodge will need to plan to shuttle guests to the lodge at no extra cost. It takes you almost 24 hours just to get over the trauma of the road before you can even relax and then you start stressing about the road again! We had a wonderful stay. The cottage was clean and comfortable. The welcome was not to our liking, but June and Sibongile made up for it the rest of the weekend, through their good service and nice attitude. WiFi doesn't work at all and there was no Vodacom signal. Thank you Forest Creek for allowing us to experience your natural beauty. That was the highlight. Blissful silence!

Hi Dalene, you are right due to the recent rains the road does need some work, we do offer a shuttle service to guests that do not have a suitable vehicle. As for the wifi I do not know what was wrong this week end, you were welcome to come to my house, (100mts from the lodge) as did the other guests, for some reason it was working at home, if I had known I would have asked you to come up. Sorry for the inconvenience with this.

It's a beautiful place, gorgeous mountains and magical forest, the drive up to the lodge is rough though.

The drive up to the lodge is 4,4 km of very rough road which adds a lot to your travel time. I recommend a 4x4 vehicle. Once you are at the lodge there is no quick drive to a shop or any other tourist attraction. There is also no cell phone signal. The hiking trails are a magnificent experience.

Forest Creek Lodge & Spa 's response

Angie thank you for the review, just to let you know our new cell booster has eventually arrived from Hong Kong, so the cell and wifi is up and running at the lodge. I am glad that you enjoyed our "Cloud forest" it is a magical place. We do have a collection service for the last 4.4km of our mountain road, if your vehicle is too low.

Thanks again

Dit was 'n heerlike wegbreek, maar baie duur.

Ons het heerlik gekuier, die tyd saam en in die natuur was kosbaar. Die verblyf en etes is ongelukkig baie duur, ons het al op ander plekke tuisgegaan waar ons vir dieselfde prys baie meer luuks gekuier het.

Mooi uitsig!

Die lodge was pragtig met 'n asemrowende uitsig. Sal wel voorstel dat hulle eerlik is met mens oor hoe sleg die R36 is en dat hul mens sal aanraai om eerder in daglig te ry. Die verblyf adverteer as Dullstroom waar dit in waarheid soos 60 km ver weg is en omtrent 1 en 'n halfuur vat om by Dullstroom uit te kom met al die padwerke. Die diens was uitstekend en die verblyf asemrowend. Hulle wynlys is wel belaglik geprys. Hulle sit omtrent 400% wins op 'n bottel. Suid-Afrikaners ken van wyn, moet ons nie so probeer flous nie. Alhoewel die "spa" se diens goed was, kan dit nie 'n spa genoem word nie. Daar is slegs een terapeut. Daai is 'n vertrek met 'n terapeut. Dit was teleurstellend aangesien dit my rede was om daar te bespreek. Dis 'n stukkie hemel met 'n pragtige staproete, maar hulle moet eerlik adverteer.

This review is being shown in its original language.
Translate to English.

Nice view!

The lodge was beautiful with a breathtaking view. Would suggest that they are honest with people about how bad the R36 is and that they will advise people to drive in daylight instead. The accommodation advertises as Dullstroom where in truth it is like 60km away and takes about 1 and a half hours to get to Dullstroom with all the road works. The service was excellent and the accommodation breathtaking. Their wine list is ridiculously priced though. They put about 400% profit on a bottle. South Africans know about wine, don't try to fool us like that. Although the "spa" service was good, it cannot be called a spa. There is only one therapist. That is a room with a therapist. This was disappointing as this was my reason for booking there. It's a piece of heaven with a beautiful hiking trail, but they need to advertise honestly.

Natuurprag en 'n rustige waterstroom en wandelpad.

Die Bee Eater eenheid is nie goed geplaas nie, dis te naby die kombuis wat lawaaierig is met skottelgoed. Dis ook teenaan die pad, en die kom en gaan van motors het dit bietjie steurend gemaak. Andersins, baie mooi met 'n lekker bad.

Rustig en baie smaaklike etes, maar duurder as die normaal.

Vir 'n kort naweek en ruskans was dit meer as die moeite werd, maar ek voel die kostes is hoog veral as jy langer sou bly. Ons het die stilte geniet en ons uitgawes so beplan om ons sak te pas, maar sou nie kon bekostig om langer te bly weens die duur kostes nie. Bygesê, die etes was baie, baie lekker.

Quiet and very tasty meals, but more expensive than normal.

For a short weekend and rest it was more than worth it, but I feel the costs are high especially if you were to stay longer. We enjoyed the silence and planned our expenses to suit our pocket, but could not afford to stay longer due to the high costs. That said, the meals were very, very nice.

Disappointing.

It is not like the picture. We requested self-catering with a pool, shower and air conditioning. Not up to our standards at all. We stayed in a small wooden house away from the lodge, about 500 m. The road is not for normal vehicles, but for 4x4. Reception was friendly and good.

Ontspanne wegbreek in lieflike omgewing.

Ons het tuisgegaan in in die nuwe "Beach Cottage". Die decor is pragtig. Die plekkie lyk soos 'n outentieke standhuisie. Die omgewing is besonder mooi. Ons was meestal selfversorgend (die woonstel is baie goed toegerus) maar het wel Sondagaand in die restaurant gaan eet. Die koste was R250 per persoon. Die kos was doodgewoon en daar was geen keuse nie. Ons het meer verwag.

Dit was voorwaar die heerlikste huweliksherdenking wat ek gehad het. Die plek is so privaat en die kos was heerlik. Anita en haar mense het ons wonderlik bederf. Die wandelpad was natuurlik vir ons 'n uitdaging maar was wonderlik om tot by die waterval te stap.

Perfect getaway for some downtime with your spouse!

Lovely and peaceful. 4x4 or high clearance vehicle a must because of roads, especially during the rain. Amazing hikes and views. Only downside for staying where we stayed was that we thought we would have peace and be undisturbed by others - we didn't realise that the staff would be cleaning daily, and attending to other things which could be disruptive.

Rustig en ontspannend

Baie lekker plek om vir 'n naweek weg te breuk. Baie mooi natuur wat die plek omring. 'n Mens word hier op die hande gedra met uitstekende diens. Kos wat bedien word is uitstekend!

Beautiful landscape and well maintained lodge with friendly staff.

The 4-km ride to top definitely requires a high clearance vehicle. If you are not travelling in one than you'd be better off asking the lodge to collect you from the gate.

The staff very professional and helpful. Very nice food. Our Bee Eater cottage was very pretty and nice to stay in. The mountains and forest walks are absolutely awesome!

Amazing views, great hikes, friendly staff, beautiful suites - terrible access road!

Only at Forest Creek for the weekend, but it was very pretty. We were a little disappointed with the food - very basic, but the friendliness of the staff, the views, the beautiful suites and the great hikes I guess made up for it.

Amazing views and peace and quiet.

We had a short but very pleasant stay at the Bee-Eater chalet, amazing features all around the lodge with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and cliffs. Except for the double booking at the spa we enjoyed everything - especially the 4x4 expedition. Getting to the lodge: be warned, you'll need to make provisions for at least a 20-30 minute drive from the tar road turnoff to the lodge, the 10-12km scenery trip was beautiful but from entering the Forest Creek cattle gate, your speed limit at times cannot exceed 20-40km/h. Food was really good! Pierre & René Wiese

Overall stay was pure enjoyment and relaxation

It was total enjoyment from the time of arrival to departure, the staff was friendly, helpful and ready to assist. The food was excellent from start to finish. I will definitely recommend this place to anyone that need a break from the everyday rush. Its the best spot to sit and relax, and enjoy the quietness of nature.

Mostly great, a bit pricey

We had a wonderful honeymoon at Forest Creek Lodge and Spa. The food was very good and the accommodation excellent. We felt some of the extras like R150 for a bush lunch consisting only of sandwiches, chips, fruit and water... not even a drink... was a bit pricey. However we were very spoiled by the staff and they went out of their way to make us comfortable. The location is quite remote and we felt a bit cut off without any cell phone reception - but that's part of why this location would be perfect for nature lovers. Many of the things we thought would be free, we had to pay for, like dinner in the gazebo and the outdoor bath. But all in all it was a great experience and many good memories were made.

Excellent location, peaceful and tranquil - with excellent service and friendly staff

The lodge is 4km up the mountain, vehicle with ground clearance is a must. The place is small and intimate, our room was excellent, service exceptional and the staff very pleasant. Food great. Hikes are easy and pleasant, dam was excellent for trout flyfishing (caught plenty) on a catch and release basis. The views are fantastic. Will highly recommend this lodge and will not hesitate to visit again. An ideal place for couples, not a place for families with small kids - in my opinion kids will be bored. Quite pricey but rated 4 star - but what you pay for is what you get.
