Ons kuier as familie was uitstekend, bande is verstewig en herinneringe is geskep.

Die cottage was netjies maar baie vuil mure, deure, vadoeke en komberse. Die skottelgoedwassponsie was meer as 1 keer gebruik en die afdroograk het 'n taai vetterige aanpaksel op gehad. Ek het skoonmaakmiddels gaan koop wat jik insluit. Die kombuis is nie ten volle uitgerus nie. Warmwater was vir seker 'n doodskoot. Selfs al het ons gaan vra vir warm water het die water ongeveer 1 uur na 1.5 uur geneem om so warm te word dat ons kan stort. Daar is geen kuierarea by die braai nie. Daar is wel 'n lang tafel met stoele op 'n klomp los klippe wat ons nie kon gebruik nie. Die sitkamer het nie genoeg sitplek vir 8 mense nie.

Not four star quality. No (visible) security.

Charming, rustic garden setting and beautiful pond and grounds. Unfortunately let down by honeymoon suite. Not four star quality I expected! Walls needed repainting- stained in bathroom. Carpets and curtains shabby. No decoder available and TV aerial seemed to be non-functioning. Menu not four star and no decent wine list. No Security at the front gate - left wide open at night with no visible security guard/cameras.

Geriewe uitstekend. Die verkeer op naby geleë pad pla baie erg veral in die aand en veral in kampeerterrein.

Die dagbesoekers moet beperk word en uitklok tyd vir dagbesoekers moet beperk word tot 17:00 aangesien langtermynbesoekers nie die geriewe ten volle kan benut op vakansiedae nie, vanweë die toeloop van dagbesoekers. Die oord was 'n gemors na Kersdag vanweë die instroming van dagbesoekers.

Nice relaxation.

Hornbill Lodge is on a beautiful farm with nice hiking trails in the area. They are very pet friendly (dogs) and have a very nice pool and nice on-site restaurant. The campsite is so beautiful you are surrounded by huge trees and feel like you are deep in the woods, but because the campsite is right next to a very busy road, traffic can make a big noise especially in the evening. The ablution block for the campsite is also a bit uncomfortable as it is shared with the main bathroom on the premises and as campers do not really have any privacy, it is also about 200 m from the site itself. Otherwise, the people are really very friendly and helpful.

Lekker uitspan.

Hornbill Lodge is op 'n pragtige plaas met lekker staproetes in die omgewing. Hulle is baie troeteldier vriendelik (honde) en het 'n baie mooi swembad en lekker restaurant op die perseel. Die kampterrein is so mooi- jy is omring met groot bome en voel asof jy diep in die bos is, maar omdat die kampterrein reg langs 'n baie besige pad is kan die verkeer groot geraas maak veral in die aand. Die ablusie blok vir die kampterrein is ook bietjie ongemaklik aangesien dit gedeel word met die hoofbadkamer op die perseel en mens as kampeerders dus nie regtig enige privaatheid het nie, dit is ook sowat 200 m van die terrein self. Andersins is die mense regtig baie vriendelik en behulpsaam.

Dit was lekker om by 'n plek te kuier waar mense nog vriendelik is en glimlag. Die kos was uit die boonste rakke. 'n Baie groot pluspunt is dat julle dierevriendelik is. Dankie, ons het 'n heerlike naweek gehad en lekker gerus by julle. Sal definitief weer 'n draai maak.

Dit was soos 'n droom.

Dit was ongelooflik lekker en so rustig. Baie mooi plekkie vir 'n kort naweekwegbreek. Dit is veilig genoeg dat ons die staproete 7 uur die aand kon doen en die sterre gaan kyk bo op die berg. Die honde daar is te fraai en baie vriendelik. Dit is lekker privaat as jy buiteseisoen gaan. Al slegte ding is dat daar 'n pad naby aan die lodge geleë is.

Kalmerende rustigheid tussen die lowergroen plantegroei.

Eienaar Cobie het my hartlik ontvang en mens laat tuis voel. Die restaurant decor met sy kaggel is 'n omgewing waar jy ure kan deurbring, stap uit na die swembaddens is 'n ware vakansie gevoel en nuttig 'n glasie wyn op die rivier oewer is 'n moet. Die innige word gevul deur die beste disse wat voorgelê word deur Cobie junior wat hom werklik goed van sy taak kwyt. Ek sal Hornbill Lodge aanbeveel vir enige persoon vir 'n sielsontspanning.

A stunning camp site with beautiful rock outcrops and a river. Toilets are a bit too far from the camp site though. The staff were very friendly and the restaurant's food delicious. The pool area is also lovely and attracts many day visitors. Overall a wonderful stay!

Goeie verblyf, ablusiegeriewe net bietjie vêr van kampterrein af.

Baie mooi plek, die ablusie is net omtrent 200 meter vanaf die naaste kampterrein. Darem is die plek heelwat goedkoop en die moeite werd.

Pragtige omgewing, vriendelike en behulpsame eienaars en werkers, maar baie raserig weens die R24 pad naby aan die oord.

Dit is 'n besonderse oord, en almal is baie vriendelik, gasvry en behulpsaam. Die natuurskoon is asemrowend. Ongelukkig is daar net een groot badkamer, naby die swembaddens maar 'n hele entjie weg van die karavaan / tent staanplekke af en mag 'n probleem wees vir 'n gesin met kleinerige kinders. Maar vir ons as gesin was die raserige verkeer die grootste probleem, wat 'n jammerte is, want dit is regtig 'n pratige plek, met orals interessante hoekies. Die R24 is baie naby aan die oord, wat beteken dat as jy kampeer jy alles baie duidelik hoor en nie veel gerus kry gedurende die nag nie. Dit mag moontlik nie die geval wees nie as jy in een van die kamers oornag.

Peaceful escape from the city that doesn't cost and arm and a leg, and you don't have to drive hours to get there.

Friendly service and good value for money. Peaceful escape from the city yet close enough for a weekend breakaway.

Rustige wegbreek uit die stad wat jou nie arm en been kos en ook nie ure vat om by uit te kom nie.

Vriendelike diens en goeie waarde vir geld. Rustige wegbreek van die stads gejaag maar tog naby genoeg om sommer vir naweek te gaan kuier.

Area pragtig. Die cottage het ongelooflik baie werk nodig. Alles lyk goedkoop aanmekaar gesit. Dit voel asof die plek nie klaar is nie. Regtig nie die geld werd nie en ons het 40% minder betaal.

If the accommodation was priced more reasonably, we would be prepared to put up with the inconveniences and return.

Inconveniences include: Only one eating area but bar stools too high so you have to hunch over yourself to eat at the table (lovely granite surface). Cheap strip neon lights across the house. Cheap door handles pierced t-shirt and almost cut my hands. Sofas and cushions ancient and dirty. Aircon units didn't work. Windows super thin and curtains insufficient and badly hung. In some rooms there are blinds that are see through, letting in light. Blind drop down and roll up cords not working so manually had to roll up the blinds. Very squeaky and uneven wooden floors so noisy when walking around. Doors not properly lockable and no burglar bars on windows (security guard patrolling on site though). Kitchen fully equipped but with very cheap utensils and crockery. Drawers in various cabinets don't open properly so cannot use - some were off the rails when we arrived. Light bulbs missing on stove top and in bedrooms upstairs. One double bed mattress very poor quality with springs pushing to the surge of the mattress Downstairs living room rug was filthy.Taps in bathrooms upstairs. Plug adapter missing so one beside lamp not usable. Old sponge and only 2 tea towels in kitchen - no replacement. Last of all, noisy. You hear the constant revving and whirr noise of the trucks and motorbikes on the nearby roads - at all hours and every day (Sunday and public holidays). Unfortunately not much can be done about this and we got used to it after a couple of days. Positives include: Setting is absolutely beautiful - great river access and beautiful pools. Some semi exotic birds and a pig for the children to look at and pet. Owner was very welcoming and friendly and made effort to address our concerns. Service from staff was friendly and courteous. Lots of towels and good pillows and duvets. Modern fridge, fully functioning oven and electrical stove top. Pet friendly: enjoyed a couple of nice walks with our dog. Not maintained but lovely setting - not worth what we paid for it relative to other accommodation in the area. Would return if it was better maintained and/or priced more reasonably.

Heerlike gasvrye kuier onder majestieuse koeltebome.

Die gasvrye ontvangs en direkte kontak met die eienaars 'n groot pluspunt. Verseker 'n troedeldiervriendelike oord. Die kos is baie lekker en goed bedien. Die kampterrein is lekker koel en ruim, die ablusie geriewe ongelukkig bietjie ver. Ons sal verseker weer daar gaan kamp.

Dit was glad nie die 4 ster werd nie.

Ons het lekker gerus maar, ongelukkig is die badkamers stukkend, los teëls en storte is geblok, was glad nie lekker nie. Daar was meeste van die tyd nie toiletpapier nie. Die badkamers is baie ver van die kampterrein af en daar is geen skottelgoed opwas-area nie. Ek sal glad nie aanbeveel om kinders daarheen te neem nie. Mense is wel vriendelik. Kampterrein is baie grond, geen gras nie. Die area is wel mooi. Maar die honde blaf vreeslik baie, veral tussen 7 en 11 in die aand.

Teleurgesteld.

Die tuin voor die kamers is totaal en al verwaarloos. Kort ernstig aandag. Swart alge teen die dak in die badkamer is aaklig. Beslis net 'n tweester plek. Nie waarde vir geld nie.

Good Day

We do value comments negative or positive, as this helps us to maintain the standard we strive for. My apologies for the the bathroom roof, this has been resolved. Winter definitely has its own beauty but it also does have a period were plants do not look as nice as they do in summer.

Would not stay again.

Rooms are very basic and cold. The food was enjoyable except salad should not have been served. Staff friendly and pleasant. Better for a summer stop-over but the place really needs some maintenance

Hornbill Lodge and Legends Restaurant's response

Thank you for your feedback; it is a pity that you did not enjoy your stay with us.

As per our advert on the internet, we do advertise a Double room with en-suite bathroom, temperature control, and selected DStv, if indeed this was not what you wanted why then did you book with us? The Hornbill Menu for the restaurant is well advertised on our web page and available for all to see, none of our dishes are served with salad, so unless you ordered a salad it would not have been served. Winter time has its special moments and inner beauty, but cold weather I should think one might have to expect.
If there was a problem with the heating in the room reporting it to reception would help in resolving the matter, and we would have gladly provided additional heating if required.
The fact that your doggie was locked up in the room might have resulted in a difficulty cleaning or maintaining cleanliness.
You are welcome to contact me direct should there be any issues with maintenance you would like to bring to my attention.

Regards Cobie

Heerlike wegbreek met fantastiese kos!

Sal dalk net mense inlig dat die ligging reg langs 'n besige pad is, net ter inligting; nie dat mens dit hoor vanuit die kamers of restaurant nie, maar wel saans buite. Dan sal ek aanbeveel kaggels in die kamers, soos by die restaurant dra dit baie by tot die atmosfeer. Maar verder het ons dit vreeslik geniet, wou nie huistoe terugkeer nie en die kos was fenomenaal!

Uiters swak!

Ek wil eintlik vir alles geen sterre gee nie, maar kan ongelukkig. Dit is blykbaar 'n 4-ster-lodge! Nog nooit! Toe ons daar aan kom was 1 ster sommer van bord ook afgetrek. Ek is regtig uiters teleurgestel. Dit wat ek op die foto's gesien het, was nie te verwagte nie! Die kamer en beddens was nie eers opgemaak nie! Nie eers vars koffie is uitgesit nie. Nie eers ordentlike seep is voorsien nie. Goedkoop vloeibare seep is oorgegooi in 'n ou, verrimpelde, stukkende pompbottel. Die vere van my kind se bed het deurgekom en haar seer gemaak. Ons kon nie eers ontbyt kry die laaste oggend nie. Hulle bedien dit heeltemal te laat. Het baie onveilig gevoel en my dogtertjie was bang. Die plek is in die bosse, naby die hoofweg. Die hek van die lodge word nie eers toegemaak nie. Vrylike toegang van enige iemand kan te wagte wees!

The Photos are a direct reflection of the Lodge and can be viewed as the same on all sites including our Facebook Page;
As I personally placed the extra brand new bed in your room, I was present when it was made up;
The soap used is liquid and Placed in branded Hornbill Bottles, it would be impossible to be in a creased container;
We only use Hotel Standard and quality bedding and there are no feathers present;
Breakfast starts at 8.30 as you were informed on arrival; there were no request from you to make other arrangements. Also on your sign in form we ask if you have any special requests, But still we did wash your child’s muddy close as requested but did not even get a thank you for.
The Crime rate in Magaliesburg is less than 3 % and we also have the following in place;
Armed response, two patrols Daily CPF , On standby , with personal participation, daily;
Patrols Twice daily by myself;
Police response in less than 5 minutes;
Strangely the open Gate was one of your requirements as you only came back late every night.

Mooi kampterrein met aaklige ablusie.

Ek het reeds vir Kobie my klagtes per e-pos gestuur. Die badkamers is ver van die kampterrein af. Daar is geen privaatheid in die storte nie en die water dam op in die storte. Die toilette spoel nie behoorlik nie. Daar is 'n besige pad naby die lodge. Daar is geen TV sodat mens rugby kan kyk nie, en daar is ook nie 'n winkel by die lodge vir melk en brood nie.

Dit was aangenaam, rustig en sal 'n wonderlike plek wees vir die somer.

Dit was regtig rustig en lekker. Ons was daar saam met ons getroude kinders en kleindogter. Dit was lekker vir almal, net bietjie koud omdat dit winter tyd is, maar ja, ek sal dit aanbeveel vir ander.

This was a huge disappointment - definitely not 4 star resort.

One of the rooms of the chalet was mouldy with unpainted walls. The room have a bad smell of damp and the owner denied it. The communal area of the chalet was small for 8 people accommodation and the couches were tacky. The grounds had animal poo around the pool. Unhygenic for small children who were with us. The owner/manager was unpleasant to deal with. We were forced to return home - a most disappointing Easter holiday for me, my friends and our children: 8 people inconvenienced.

Rustig, ontspanne.

Hornbill Lodge kan aanbeveel word vir enigeen wat iets anders soek - daar is die heerlike stilte, die rivier, baie bome met skadu, en die kos word nie afgeskeep nie. Die atmosfeer is rustig, die personeel en bestuur is baie vriendelik. Vir diegene wat wil gaan kuier is die fasiliteite daar; vir diegene wat wil gaan rus in stilte is die fasiliteite ook daar. Die pryse is billik, die akkommodasie ruim, gerieflik en silwerskoon. Die hele terrein word goed versorg, selfs in die dele waar net veld is. 'n Paradys!

Huis was gerieflik en die diens was goed.

Vir ons doeleindes was dit lekker. Baie naby aan die hoofpad wat baie besig is en nogal raas. Die huis se geriewe self was baie lekker en goed toegerus en die diens was baie goed. Restaurant se kos was baie lekker, maar daar is geen alternatief nie.

Die kamers is lekker ruim en gemaklik. Die personeel is baie gasvry en behulpsaam. Die Restaurant het 'n lekke kuier atmosfeer veral die kaggelvuur. Verder is Hornbill voorwaar 'n moet op jou lysie vir kuiers.

'n Ruim plek met 'n rustige, romantiese atmosfeer.

Dit was 'n baie lekker rustige plekkie, behalwe vir trokke wat op die hoofpad verby ry. Die staproetes kan net duideliker gemerk word, veral langs die rivier.

Ons is baie vriendelik ontvang en het dadelik tuis gevoel. Die kamer was skoon en baie gerieflik.

Dit is in 'n rustige omgewing en naby genoeg aan die dam.D it was baie koud die naweek, maar die kaggelvuur was wonderlik.

Hornbill Lodge is 'n 2-ster opsie, nie 4-ster nie; wees gewaarsku oor die pryse en verkeer.

Ons het oorgebly vir 2 aande vir ons huweliksherdenking. Kospryse was baie duur en het amper geen opsies gehad nie. Drankpryse was nog erger - een SA bier was geprys teen R38.50! Die kamer was skoon, maar benodig baie liefde en aandag. Ons kamer was ook net onder een van die besigste paaie in die area, dag en nag. Selfoonontvangs was nie so goed nie - geen WiFi of kroegyskas in kamer nie. Die swembad en omgewing was egter baie "nice".

The hospitality was genuine and friendly

Our hosts were attentive and very friendly, even though we were the sole guests. Our only possible negative is that some of the linen could be replaced.
