“Weeklong stay at Doornkop”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Stayed at the resort for 7 days 11 to 18 Apr 2014. What a stunning experience - Utilizing just 3 of the 5 ensuite bedrooms our unit was right next to a small river. Saw most of the wildlife species from our balcony! The flyfishing dams are the best kept we have encountered at any resort. The unit has everything a self caterer needs including a dishwasher. It was properly serviced and cleaned every day. Will be back there in December ! 9km of dirtroad from the main tar road is well kept and so are the dirt roads in the resort. Wide diversity of plants and wild flowers, spiders and other goggas. We can and will recommend this resort without any doubt.

“Stay at Doornkop 7-10Jun2013”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

We spent a weekend at Doornkop. Enjoyed it very much, but had to leave very early on Monday morning and could therefore not return our key to get our key deposit back. Left the key with security, which management confirmed they receive. We also forgot an item in the unit and asked management to post this to us and recover the postage from the key deposit to be paid into my bank account. It's now almost a month later and still no word about the item posted or the refund of our key deposit, despite several emails and telephone calls to them. This leaves a bad taste and all because of a mere R150 key deposit!

“New Management”
Reviewed 16 February 2013

As always a good visit to Doornkop Resort but very encouraging to see new management and guests been looked after once again.

Over the last few years guests have been forgotten as the property has developed and that hospitality lost. However so encouraging to see the management team visiting the houses this morning and greeting guests!

The First Resorts name stands out in South Africa resorts and now that Doornkop Resort is managed by them must mean good things to come!
