Excellent service and great views.

From arrival you feel welcomed into the Otters Den Self Catering accommodation. The cottages are tastefully decorated. The kitchen has been upgraded to gas since our last stay, which is great for load shedding. The owners are friendly and welcoming and are willing to assist with anything you require. We will definitely be back for sure.

Baie romanties en rustig.

Perfect escape from the city.

Neat cottage with lively furnishings and attention to detail. Our stay was relaxing and a nice escape from the city for the weekend. The host outdid themselves with champagne waiting for my husband after me mentioning it as the reason for our visit. It was so good we have already booked another stay at Otters Den. Hopefully we get to see the otter next time.

'n Lieflike plek om af te skakel met alles wat jy nodig het.

Hierdie plekkie is pragtig geleë op die oewer van die Lionsrivier, met uitsig oor die vallei. Goed toegerus met alles wat jy nodig het. Die plek is oorgeneem deur Christine en haar eggenoot ongeveer 'n jaar gelede en hulle is besig om dit stelselmatig te verbeter. Die huidige projek is om die elektriese stoofplate met gasplate te vervang. Met kragonderbrekings is daar kragopwekkers beskikbaar wat aangesit word wanneer nodig. Daar is 'n houtbrandstofie om die koue te verdryf, en hout is beskikbaar. Die beddens is heerlik gerieflik en met elektriese warmkomberse toegerus. Christine is 'n baie bedagsame gasvrou wat haar gaste se gerief eerste stel. Otters Den Self-catering Cottages is hoogs aanbeveel vir 'n rustige kuier in 'n pragtige omgewing.

This review is being shown in its original language.

A lovely place to switch off with everything you need.

This place is beautifully situated on the banks of the Lions River, overlooking the valley. Well equipped with everything you need. The place was taken over by Christine and her husband about a year ago and they are systematically improving it. The current project is to replace the electric stove plates with gas plates. In the event of power outages, there are generators available that are switched on when needed. There is a wood burner to ward off the cold, and wood is available. The beds are wonderfully comfortable and equipped with electric heating blankets. Christine is a very considerate hostess who puts her guests' comfort first. Otters Den Self-catering Cottages are highly recommended for a peaceful visit in beautiful surroundings.

Mooi cottage, Christine baie hulpvaardig.

Pragtige plek, mooi chalet, luuks en netjies. Vir 'n klein karretjie is die grondpad net nie goed nie. Christine was baie behulpsaam met die TV. Verder heerlik gekuier, dankie.

Otters Den is our escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. Even just a 2-night stay at Otters Den leaves you feeling like you've had a break. The views are fantastic, and the hosts go out of their way to ensure your stay is comfortable. Our unit was also very well equipped.

Baie lekker en ontspannend.

Die ligging is perfek, natuurskoon is mooi en al die dorpies in die Midlands Meander is maklik bekombaar vanaf hier. Dit is privaat en baie netjies. Sal bietjie meer fokus op detail waardeer. Vervang van seep en skuimbad daagliks sal lekker wees. 2 Punt prop vir selfoon herlaai en haardroër sal waardeer word. Die kaggel is 'n goeie idee maar om dit aan te kry is 'n ander storie, baie rook binne in die vertrek as gevolg van die skoorteen stelsel, aanbeveling is om 'n klep aan die buitekant aan te bring wat oop en toe kan maak.

This review is being shown in its original language.

Very nice and relaxing.

The location is perfect, the scenery is beautiful and all the villages in the Midlands Meander are easily accessible from here. It is private and very neat. Would appreciate a little more focus on detail. Changing soap and bubble bath daily would be nice. 2 Point plug for mobile phone charging and hair dryer would be appreciated. The fireplace is a good idea but getting it on is another story, a lot of smoke inside the room due to the chimney system, recommendation is to install a valve on the outside that can open and close .

Otters Den is 'n pragtige plek met asemrowende uitsigte. Alhoewel dit koud en reënerig was, het ons steeds heerlik gekuier. Dit is slegs 15 minute weg van Nottingham Road en ons kon vinnig deurry om die besienswaardighede te besoek.

Uitstekende waarde vir geld. Foto's op hul webwerf, is hoe dit werklik lyk.

Dis 'n juweel in die Natal Midlands. Ideaal geleë vir besoeke na plekke, soos kaas winkels, wewers, bagel winkel, plaaslike markte en vele meer. Anders kan jy net ontspan by jou huisie en luister na die Lions rivier se gekabbel. Daar is 'n heerlike vuurherd wat snoesig is, veral op reënerige dae. Die eienaars is baie vriendelik en sal uit hulle pad gaan om te help waar nodig. Die spa behandelings is hemels en beslis aan te bevele. Ons sal definitief weer hierheen gaan. Dit was ook vir ons 'n kans om ons siel en liggaam te rus, na' n baie stresvolle jaar. Plaas 'n besoek aan hierdie kosbare plekkie op jou vakansie lys.

Excellent value for money. Pictures on their website are what it actually looks like.

It's a gem in the Natal Midlands. Ideally located for visits to places such as cheese shops, weavers, bagel shop, local markets and many more. Otherwise you can just relax at your cottage and listen to the babbling of the Lions river. There is a lovely fireplace which is cozy, especially on rainy days. The owners are very friendly and will go out of their way to help where needed. The spa treatments are heavenly and definitely recommended. We will definitely go here again. It was also a chance for us to rest our soul and body, after a very stressful year. Put a visit to this precious place on your holiday list.

Expected more.

As a preferred partner I expected a little more! We were give 1 teabag each for the weekend which is unusual as most self catering provide tea coffee milk etc daily. Enjoyed the views and walk. However was told if needed just to shout on both occasions the messages were answered late or unable to assist. DStv wasn’t working however only informed of this on my way down and told it wasn’t their fault. WiFi (as I had to send a few email as for work) was shocking available but didn’t actually work.

25ste huweliksherdenking - kon nie vir 'n beter bestemming vra nie!

Ongelooflik intieme gevoel oorweldig jou soos jy by die eenheid se deur instap en mens kan net nie anders om deur die venster te staar na buite. Die stoepie is heerlik en natuurskoon omvou jou met beide arms, so mooi! Die TV en DStv kan maar verwyder word, want dit is totaal onnodig. Ons het natuurlik die borrelbad tot die uiterste geniet! Die stilte en privaatheid is al wat ons nodig gehad het en dit is beslis een van ons top-10-wegbreke.

25th wedding anniversary - couldn't ask for a better destination!

An incredibly intimate feeling overwhelms you as you walk through the unit's door and you just can't help but stare out the window. The porch is lovely and scenery wraps you around with both arms, so beautiful! The TV and DStv can be removed, because it is totally unnecessary. Of course we enjoyed the hot tub to the fullest! The quiet and privacy is all we needed and this is definitely one of our top 10 getaways.

Ons het baie lekker gebly. Dit is rustig met pragtige natuurskoon.

Ons is vriendelik ontvang. Die woonplek word goed onderhou en die eienaars is voltyds betrokke by hul besigheid. Die ekstra bonus was beslis die opsie van 'n spa behandeling. Ons kan Otters den aanbeveel as jy hou van rustigheid en as jy die natuurskoon kan waardeer. Dit is geleë weg van die toeriste bedrywigheid, maar naby genoeg as jy wil deel wees van die Nottingham ondervinding.

We had a very nice stay. It is peaceful with beautiful scenery.

We were kindly received. The residence is well maintained and the owners are full time involved in their business. The extra bonus was definitely the option of a spa treatment. We can recommend Otters den if you like tranquility and if you can appreciate the natural beauty. It is located away from the tourist activity, but close enough if you want to be part of the Nottingham experience.

Alhoewel dit gereeld gereën het, het ons elke oomblik geniet. Die wooneenhede is silwerskoon, die uitsig is asemrowend en die atmosfeer is heerlik rustig. Ek beveel Otters Den aan vir enige paartjie wat 'n blaaskans wil vat of iemand wat net alleen wil wees en kop skoon wil maak.
