We had a wonderful stay at Eight Bells Mountain Inn. Relaxed and rejuvenated.

We had problems with the shower in the rooms we were originally booked into, but we received excellent service and they changed our rooms the next day. The new rooms were much better. The rooms we were originally booked into need to be upgraded though. The views were stunning, and there is quite a lot to do at the inn: bowls, squash, tennis, table tennis, billiards, board games, and a library, so lots to keep ourselves busy even with 3 days of rain. Our breakfast was good, and they attended to our special halal needs. Supper was a bit of a problem due to our special halal requirements; we didn't have much to choose from during our 7-day stay, but the staff was very accommodating to all our needs. We really enjoyed our stay, and the staff were very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. However, due to our special needs, we would have loved a mini kitchen with a microwave and a mini fridge to make some of our own meals. The only thing missing for us. The WiFi was really very bad, and something really needs to be done about it.

Baie aangename verblyf wat ek vir enigeen kan aanbeveel.

Een van die hoogtepunte van my vakansie. Die personeel is baie vriendelik en professioneel, die ete deftig en lekker. Die kamers/hutjies netjies en skoon. Dan is daar natuurlik baie lekker staproetes om te volg. Sal beslis weer gaan. Kan net nie te lank bly, want dan sal jy jou sak moet skud.

Very pleasant stay that I can recommend to anyone.

One of the highlights of my holiday. The staff is very friendly and professional, the food classy and delicious. The rooms/cabins neat and clean. Then of course there are many nice hiking trails to follow. Will definitely go again. Just can't stay too long, because then you'll have to shake your bag.

Baie dankie dat u by ons kom bly het en dat u die tydjie hier so geniet het.
As gevolg van baie slegte weer Sondag, was ons hele area se krag af tussen 11:30 en 17:30. Ongelukkig beteken dit dat die Telkom stasie waar ons data en Internet vandaan kom ook af was.
Ons is baie jammer dat u nie vir daardie tydperk enige Internet toegang gehad het nie.
Ons sien uit na u volgende besoek.

Nice hotel in a lovely mountain area.

We had some lovely days in this hotel. The premises belonging to it are huge and you can do nice hikes without leaving them. The buildings are okay, but could need a renovation in the next years.

Plek om te ontspan in die mooi natuurskoon van berg en omgewing.

Baie netjies en tuin is baie mooi. Baie mooi eetgerei en tafeldoeke is spierwit asook die beddegoed en kamerbediening is baie goed. Dit is 'n plek om net te ontspan.

Voortreflik en puik.

'n Pragtige plek en baie goed en netjies versorg. Ontbyt en aandete was uitstekend. Die personeel was baie vriendelik. Die sitkamer is baie lekker en die vuurtjie het geknetter. Die kamer was heerlik warm toe ons inkom. Dit was voorwaar 'n puik plek om vakansie te hou of selfs net te oornag.

Excellent and great.

A beautiful place and very well and neatly maintained. Breakfast and dinner were excellent. The staff was very friendly. The living room is very nice and the fire was crackling. The room was wonderfully warm when we entered. It was truly a great place to vacation or even just stay overnight.

Good location and fine accommodation

The room was clean and comfortable and nicely located. Pity about the screaming children running wild. Good location for family stays. Wrong location for anyone wanting to enjoy peace and tranquility. Staff were willing and helpful but lack the "polish" required of a 4-star establishment. We put it down to inadequate training and supervision. The food was frankly, quite awful - my fried eggs were "toasted" (dark brown and leathery - couldn't cut through it) and my husband's omlette was dark brown on the outside and raw on the inside! We sent it back. Our nightly turn-down looked as if I had jumped out of bed in a hurry, as opposed to gentle folded back!!

Dit was absoluut FANTASTIES.

Ons verblyf by Eight Bells was regtig 'n ongelooflike ervaring. Die personeel was vriendelik en hulpvaardig. Dis ongelooflik mooi en rustig. Definitief aan te beveel! Volgende keer neem ons die kinders saam. Dis ongelooflik kindervriendelik. En die pryse is regtig goed.
