Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

Our check in was swift with a quick drive around to the Hotel. The resort is in a beautiful setting, although this time of the year everything is dry and brown. The room is spacious enough for two - and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was a good spread of everything - and the service was good and pleasant. The location is excellent, Cedarwood shopping centre across the road and all other sights just a drive away.

Our family stayed at CSR during July and had a splendid time. Breakfast and dinner buffets were excellent with regard to quality and variety. Room was lovely and resort still well looked after. Golf course in good condition despite the dry winter weather. Service very good. We will return.

Room Tip: Hotel rooms on 2nd level facing the tennis courts, provides a lovely view of the mountains.

Reviewed 5 August 2014

the hotel rooms are spacious, only downside is the hot water pressure was very low.

for a busy hotel the buffet was very good and the food was tasty and well stocked.

the golf course was in very good condition, especially being as busy as it was and it was in winter and somewhat dry, fairways played well and the greens were in excellent condition, The course deserves its rating, can't wait to play there again when it's summer and the area is green and lush.

Room Tip: book early, hotel is very popular.

My family had a glorious weekend at Champagne sports resort near Winterton!
Great food, awesome service and many smiling and efficient staff!

Golf course awesome and staff very efficient to help in all regards!

Only issue was thin walls between rooms, which makes privacy a problem!
Thanks for a memorable weekend to your team!!!

The Chalets are brilliant and the resort was the perfect setting for our family get together.
There was plenty of activities both in the resort and surrounding areas.The Supermarket and liquor outlet across the road are horribly expensive. A bottle of red wine is R20 more than JHB. Rather go to Super Spar in Winterton. Its worth the drive. The bakery down the road is great and everything is baked fresh and tastes great except the croissants which are not real croissants.
We will definitely be back.Philip West runs a fantastic resort.
Only the WiFi could be stronger & faster
Tip: The Pine cones make great fire lighters and if you collect a few bags they warm up the chalet the whole evening

Room Tip: I would rather have the chalet than a room. They are super quiet and more spacious.

We are privileged to be owners of a time share in this resort. Therefore, we return every year for a special relaxing time here.
The chalets are very comfortable, well serviced and modern. Although it is self catering, we often make use of the restsurant in the hotel. This is also highly recommended and the food is lovely with a VERY wide range to choose from!
We have visited during different seasons of the year and each one has something special about it. I must admit, Winter time is freezing cold!! Every morning the frost looks like snow! Luckily the chalets are equipped with a fireplace and in the hotel itself are cosy fireplaces too.
We love playing golf and although difficult, this golf course is just in another league. Definitely one of our highlights when we visit here!

We visit this resort once a year. We've stayed their for the last week and once again it was great. The golf course is brilliant, the service staff was friendly and efficient, the buffet dinner in the hotel was excellent. You get all of this in one of the most beautiful places in the world. We will be back next year.
