“Awesome view”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

We have stayed at this lodge at least 5 times and every time have been happy with the clean comfortable rooms. The surrounding are peaceful and beautiful. A real treat is the light lunch they offer. It is situated perfectly in order for one to discover everything the Lowveld has on offer.

Room Tip: Rooms further away from the main road is less noisy

(Booked at Honeymoon Suite 14/6/13)...Due to the Stop/Goes and numerous road works we arrived after dark at the venue on a Motorcycle...we spoke to the owner via the security guards phone requesting her to open the deli/wine shop which officially closed at 5pm so we could get some supplies for supper only to be told that our breakfast was in the fridge and we must make do with that as she was busy elsewhere. A little flexibility would have been appreciated but for future visits to the area there is an abundance of accomodation options which will consider in future. It was not a good start to our Honeymoon. Thankfully the other places we stayed on the following nights more than made up for this regretable experience.

Dear Mr. McGuigan,

Thank you for your review.

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the Windmill and that it did not live up to your expectations :(

Sounds like a horrible trip down with the road works which we also experienced on our last rip to the Cape, they seem to be country wide :(

With all due respect the shop times are clearly stated in the quote & confirmation and we are just a B&B and don't promise dinners.

Sadly I had already committed to assist another establishment whose owner was away in Germany and just tried to assist by suggesting you have your breakfast as dinner that evening (unfair to say I told you to make do with that) and go out for breakfast in the light of day, sorry I couldn't have been of more assistance.

I hope you do come back to our wonderful area and have better experiences in the many accommodation choices our area has to offer :)

Once again apologies
Kindest
Jacqui

We stayed in the honeymoon suite - what a pleasure! The owners definitely know what they are doing! The setting was extraordinary and amazingly romantic! Tasteful and rustic, with everything you need to spend a most memorable weekend with your loved one - worth every penny!

We stayed in the honeymoon suite, and had the most gorgeous view over the valley. The jacuzzi on the deck was great, and the bath also had a beautiful view across the valley. The outside shower on the deck was intimidating at first but what a lovely experience. The bottle of bubbly in the fridge waiting for us was a nice touch.

There's not a lot to do at the venue itself, but you're well placed for the region, and the food at The Windmill is superb. Highly recommend the cheese platter!

Beautiful and tranquil. A gem.

Room Tip: The honeymoon suite is worth the extra.

Set 17KM from Hazyview and 27KM from Sabie, the cottages are truly a romantic get away. They are furnished to the highest standard, king size bed with quality linens. Bathroom with walk in shower and lovely toiletries. There is a small kitchenette which includes a microwave, toaster, fridge but no oven or hob. There is tea and coffee plus fresh milk.
An excellent breakfast is provided on your wooden deck at the front of the cottage and includes cereal, wide selection of fruit, yoghurt, croissant and fabulous sandwiches.
The property is well located for visiting Kruger, Blyde River Canyon, Pilgrims Rest and other local sites.
Highly recommended although driving up and down the Sabie/Hazyview road may become a little tiresome during an extended stay.

A friend & I rented 2 separate cottages that was our 'home away' for 10 days. Each had a deck with table/chairs overlooking the tree filled Sabie valley that provided our 'backyard view' for 10 days. Variety of birds provide the music from dawn to dusk. Cottages are spacious, very high ceilings, very clean, separate kitchen area stocked daily with tea, coffee, bottle water & fresh milk for cereal. We shopped groceries in Hazyview, which has 2 large box stores, including fresh hot food for dinner pick up, which we did frequently on the way home from the Kruger. Beds & linens were excellent comforts, and maid service (mature long term employees) was provided daily rather than weekly for long term stay. (there was no tub, which would have been an issue if my wife had come along, but I am a shower guy & the pressure & hot water was great after a long day in the bush) Soap & shampoo products were provided as well as big towels.
The main building upon arrival has the winery, beer & cheese shop as part of the registration area which is convenient. The building is located right off the highway & is well lit at night so it is easy to find your way. The property is fenced with electric for night safety, and a guard lets you access when returning after hours. Thomas, owner, is a large jovial fellow who fits well with the many beers to pour, and having lived near there his lifetime, he is very knowledgable of where to go and how best to get there.

Our mission was to photograph the wild game in Kruger which is easily accessed daily thru Phabeni Gate @ Hazyview; the Blydes Canyon attractions and wildlife sanctuaries. The Windmill provides an excellent & affordable base place that is all you would want in comfort, services and convenience. (the exteriors are basic non painted block which at first glance might seem unfinished, but then you come to realize they sit naturally among the nature, and the interiors are very well done)

I could (and would) stay for an extended period & be perfectly happy...so quiet, comfortable & a great nites sleep after a day out and about.

Reviewed 17 September 2009

The owners obviously do not wish to take any risks which a normal business would take. Only 100% payment permitted up front - no deposit. Credit Card Authorisation Form states "cancellations within 24 hours will incur 100% cancellation charge". However, cancelling days before we were due to travel due to medical emergency, we still incurred the full charge which was almost 6000zar! Owners agreed to use this payment as a CREDIT for a future booking but on condition of completion of another credit card authorisation form. They said if we made another cancellation they would take the full amount again. This is contrary to the agreement of having paid once already and using it as a credit. Their cancellation policy is unfair compared to other lodges/guest houses and we do not now trust them with our credit card details again.

Hi,

This review is clearly an emotional response from a very unhappy guest who had to cancel at the last minute and forfeited their payment. This guest was offered 'free nights' in exchange for the late cancellation of the booked nights due to the medical emergency and was asked to secure them incase of another cancellation and was not asked to pay again for them.

The ratings should be disregarded as this guest did not actually stay with us and therefore can not comment on 'cleaniness, rooms' etc....

Our other reviews speak for themselves?
