My husband and I have just spent 4 days at Blackwaters River Lodge and had an amazing stay! From the beautiful decor, the really friendly staff and owners, the stunning setting on the banks of the river, to the delectable food served in the on-site restaurant, this resort truly ticks all the boxes!!
My husband and I have stayed in many 4 and 5 star B&B's recently and are both very fussy travellers. I can honestly say that every little detail was well taken care of at Blackwaters, even down to ridding our room of any creepy crawlies before we arrived as I had told the owner that I am afraid of spiders.
Champagne awaited us in our room, which we enjoyed in the sumptuous bath tub after eating a hearty, home-cooked meal on our first night there. The beds are very comfortable and the total blockout curtains allowed us to sleep deliciously late the next morning. Cleanliness is a priority for the staff and we could not find fault at all in this regard, both in our room or in the restaurant.
We enjoyed a leisurely paddle down the river on the canoes provided, after the staff had carefully cleaned it out to make sure it was spider-free! Sadly we ran out of time to enjoy a round of golf on the mashie course that is maintained in excellent condition. We WILL be back again to enjoy the golf course!
Whether it is peace & quiet you are seeking or some good outdoor fun, this property in a beautiful setting can accomodate you. Whether you are a couple wanting a romantic break, or a family with kids, there is something for everyone and nothing is too much effort for the staff and owners. I highly recommend a visit to Blackwaters for anyone looking for that something extra.
