Dit was 'n lekker wegbreek nie te ver van die huis af nie.

Die personeel is ongelooflik vriendelik en behulpsaam. Die eenheid is mooi en word daagliks skoongemaak. Die lodge is baie mooi. Dit is baie rustig.

Fantasties.

Jy moet die ontbyt by die restaurant gaan eet. Almal wil jou net bederf. Dit was vir ons 'n stukkie goud so naby aan Pretoria.

You have to go and eat the breakfast at the restaurant. Everyone just wants to spoil you. It was a piece of gold for us so close to Pretoria.

Lizelle by ontvangs was baie tegemoetkomend en behulpsaam.

Die ontvangs deur Lizelle was baie warm en sy het ons vinnig op die hoogte gebring van alles. Die terrein en geboue was netjies instandgehou en skoon. Hoe wel dit winter was, Junie, het ons lekker warm geslaap. Die omgewing waarin die lodge geleë is, is skilderagtig mooi. Beslis aan te beveel. Adverteer net wyer.

Lizelle at reception was very accommodating and helpful.

The reception by Lizelle was very warm and she quickly brought us up to date on everything. The grounds and buildings were neatly maintained and clean. Even though it was winter, June, we slept nice and warm. The environment in which the lodge is located is picturesque. Definitely recommend. Just advertise more widely.

Nice place, very basic.

Our stay was not great. Our unit was not cleaned, even though the cleaning service was on site. Meals had to be pre-ordered. Food wasn't good, over cooked and very salty. Had an upset stomach that entire night. The beds were also very bad, had to sleep on the sofa, just to get a good night's sleep.

Alles was netjies en skoon. Alles het ook baie goed by ontvangs verloop.

Dit was 'n baie goeie ervaring. Ek was net nie bewus daarvan dat daar 'n snoepie was waar mens ekstra goed kon koop nie. Verder was dit 'n baie goeie ervaring. Die diens by ontvangs was baie vriendelik en proffesioneel. Ek sal beslis weer van die plek gebruik maak.

Lekker gebly.

Alles was great behalwe dat die yskas 'n reuk gehad het omrede daar bloedwater agter die yskas opgevang was met die skoonmaak van die yskas. Asook ons wag al drie weke vir die deposito om terug betaal te word. Die grondpad op pad na die plek toe moet verkieslik nie met 'n kar aangedurf word nie. Bakkies en 4x4's sal fine wees.

This review is being shown in its original language.

Nice stay.

Everything was great except that the fridge had a smell because blood had collected behind the fridge when cleaning the fridge. As well as we have been waiting three weeks for the deposit to be refunded. The dirt road on the way to the place should preferably not be ventured with a car. Vans and 4x4s will be fine.

Die fotos op die webtuiste is total misleidend, nie ware weergawe van werklike toestand nie.

Beddegoed is oud. Eenheid het uitgekyk op 'n elektriese transformator. "High speed" WiFi het nie gewerk nie. Pad wat afdraai vanaf die Groblersdal-teerpad tot by Markon is baie swak, geen melding op webtuiste daarvan nie.

The photos on the website are totally misleading, not true version of actual condition.

Bedding is old. Unit overlooked an electrical transformer. "High speed" WiFi did not work. The road that turns off from the Groblersdal asphalt road to Markon is very poor, no mention of it on the website.

A little pricey for what you are getting.

Much like a two star lodge at best, however the price charged is for more upmarket accommodation. Lodge needs a bit more attention to detail.

Rustige ontspanning.

Van die aankoms het Natasha ons laat welkom voel, self deur die oord gevat om te wys waar is wat, kry dit nie by ander oorde nie. Die stilte is presies wat 'n mens se siel soek en die "Pinnacle" asemrowend mooi. Markon River Lodge sien ons vir seker weer.

Quiet relaxation.

From the moment of arrival, Natasha made us feel welcome, took us around the resort herself to show where is what, you don't get that at other resorts. The silence is exactly what one's soul is looking for and the "Pinnacle" is breathtakingly beautiful. Markon River Lodge see us again for sure.

Rustig en privaat.

Kliëntediens was great. Kan dalk net aandag gee aan beligting van looppaadjies. Dis nogal donker in die aand en matjies vir die storte wat keer dat mens gly. Andersins het ons baie leke gekuier. Ephraim, ons kelner vir die naweek, was puik.

Customer service was great. Might just pay attention to walkway lighting. It's quite dark in the evening and mats for the showers prevent you from slipping. Otherwise, we visited a lot of lay people. Ephraim, our waiter for the weekend, was great.

Plek het baie aandag en skoonmaak nodig.

Alles was baie lekker, maar 'n klein kafee wat die nodige aanhou sal goed wees. Die huis waarin ons gebly het, het baie aandag nodig en is nie baie skoon nie. Kombuistoeristing is van uiterse swak gehalte.

Good, quality, family getaway.

This is a good quality family getaway for people with young children. We stayed in the Old Farm House and were intrigued by the original layout of the farm house. The giant porch overlooking the Wilger River was my favourite place to be. The staff was amazing, friendly and always willing to help. My son of 20 months really enjoyed all the activities such as visiting the animals, walking the trails and playing in the rock pools at the Pinnacle.

Gerieflik, goeie konferensiegeriewe, baie behulpsaam en pragtige omgewing.

Om 'n konferensie te hou en dit nog aangenaam te probeer maak vir 'n groot groep mense, verg weliswaar oorspronklike denke en plekke. Luiperdskloof het daarin geslaag om nie net die ideale plek te wees vir 'n konferensie nie, maar ook 'n plek waar die hele groep kon ontspan en bietjie vergeet van die geroesemoes daarbuite. Ons het nuwe herinneringe geskep, hegter vriendskapsbande gesmee en ons het elke oomblik geniet. Van die eerste oomblik af, was al die personeel hulpvaardig en het hulle uit hulle pad gegaan om ons gemaklik te maak. Maak tog 'n punt daarvan om 'n wildrit te neem en na die Pinnacle te gaan.

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

Convenient, good conference facilities, very helpful and beautiful environment.

Hosting a conference and still trying to make it enjoyable for a large group of people, really requires original thinking and unique places. Luiperdskloof managed not only to be the ideal place for a conference, but also a place where the whole group could relax and forget about the hustle and bustle outside. We created new memories, forged friendships and enjoyed every moment. From the first moment, all the staff were helpful and went out of their way to make us comfortable. Make a point of taking a game drive and going to the Pinnacle.

Sonder om ver te ry, in die natuur teen die Wilgerivier, lekker wegbreek.

Ons het in die ou plaashuis gewoon en het die "outydse" gevoel van die AGA-stoof, kaggel en groot stoep baie geniet. So jammer dit was net vir een nag. Volgende keer sal ons die plek wil sien in die laat somer, vroeg herfs.

Without having to drive far, in nature by the Wilge River, a nice break.

We lived in the old farmhouse and really enjoyed the "old fashioned" feel of the AGA stove, fireplace and large porch. So sorry it was only for one night. Next time we would like to see the place in late summer, early autumn.
