“Beautiful setting but could be so much better”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

We had to find a place to stop over on our way to Port St Johns and we booked at Stoneybrook. Really beautiful setting and the rustic cottage could be the perfect getaway from busy city life for couples or couples with kids.

There was just a lack of effort put into the cleaning. We first thought it was just "rustic" but then discovered it was actually just dirty. The patio chairs were filthy - in fact the one chair had fishhooks on it - luckily we did not sit on it! The gas ran out so we could did not have hot water the next morning. We ordered food from the "steak ranch" and received calamari that was deep fried to a crisp and chops that were over-cooked and dry (at a price, I might add).

Stoneybrook really has the potential but it looks like no one actually cares about the place. It was affordable (R600) but there is really no excuse for a place not being clean.

Reviewed 26 March 2012

There was a muck up on our camping reservation, and there were some noisy youngsters on the site, so for the same price we were put into A frame huts with ensuite - that is what I call good service, and it will be rewarded as we are bound to go back!

Very hot when we went, but Boma by pool lovely. Good choice of cooled beers, though not on tap.

Had good steak supper and excellent breakfast - also good advice to go to Addo via the Northern route. Probably 15 minutes longer, but only if the N2 didn't have hold ups, which is usually does!. Had a gorgeous pretty drive through with nearly no traffic.
