A group of three of us on motorcycles stayed there in April 2017. It was recommended by another motorcyclist and we really enjoyed our stay. We each had our own rondavel which has a double bed upstairs on a deck. Fairly basic place but good value at R600 for one person per rondavel per night. The food in the restaurant...

Highly recommended for a pizza stop. Seriously one of the best pizzas I have ever had. We stopped in for a quick bite and never expected such a great lunch spot near Bergville. Would recommend anyone in the area to pop in on a lazy day in the berg.

I spent 2 nights at Bingelela and it was amazing. The " huts " are beautiful. The inside is really sophisticated with a big bath, bathroom ( including shower ) and everything you need. The huts are spaced and you can relax outside at peace. The main lodge is wide and has enough space for everyone to have a good...

I see that it does not let you book this place through Tripadvisor. For shame. I thought this place was quite nice, the food was delicious, the little huts were very pretty and comfortable, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Only downside was the internet (slow and not available in the rooms,) but this is standard for all of...

We needed an overnight stay for hiking. This place was simple, decent price. It was nice that there was a restaurant. No need to cook. It was in Bergville, so easy access to the mountain for hiking. The restaurant is great, lots of food and drinks option. The bungalow is small, but well equipped. They even had a hairdryer! Not...

One of the best and most relaxing places to stay at. The Restaurant has no equal.Every dish is made with care and only the freshest ingredients mostly out of there own gardens. Joss and Paula make you feel welcome from the start.

I popped in with my girl for a quick bite. Our expectations were very low as the local offering is generally depressing at best, but as we entered we were pleasantly surprised. The menu was impressive, wine list was well priced and selected.. All in all, a good first impression. Don't get me wrong, this venue is rustic with a...
