Verkwikking vir die siel en salwing vir die gees.

Dit was 'n salige rustige naweek in die mooiste natuurskoon wat die mooie Kaapse wynlande kan bied. In die stilte kan mens die voëls hoor gesels en die groot vyeboom, langs die stoep, se blare hoor ritsel. Die enigste probleem is dat ons nie 3 dae langer kon bly nie.

Refreshment for the soul and anointing for the spirit.

It was a blissfully peaceful weekend in the most beautiful scenery that the beautiful Cape winelands can offer. In the silence, one can hear the birds chattering and hear the rustling of the leaves of the large fig tree next to the porch. The only problem is that we couldn't stay 3 days longer.

Just what the doctor ordered.

A long weekend in the mountains. Nature, good company, great food, cocktails, a hot tub and a jacuzzi bath. Feeling well relaxed after our visit. What more could we ask for? We will certainly be back again.

Lekker gestap, visgevang en ontspan.

Die span by Pat Busch is almal vriendelik en het goed na ons gekyk. Ongelukkig maak die blou bessie plaas lanksaan geraas gedurend die nag, maar dis sekerlik nie altyd so nie. Die natuurreservaat is baie mooi en die staproetes is puik. Ons sal weer kom om te stap en om vis te vang.

The team at Pat Busch are all friendly and looked after us well. Unfortunately, the blue berry farm makes a lot of noise during the night, but it's certainly not always like that. The nature reserve is very beautiful and the hiking trails are great. We will come again for hiking and fishing.

Beautiful farm with stunning scenery and surroundings. Our daughter had an absolute blast playing and running around and we felt really safe.

The cottage was neat and as per the pictures. The fireplace inside the cottage really helped to heat us up when the sun went down. Not much criticism I can give except that the WiFi is really unstable and practically unusable. But that's also fine because it was nice to unplug and just take in our beautiful surroundings.

Pat Busch Mountain Reserve 's response

Dear Monique,
Thank you so much for the wonderful comments and rating, it is much appreciated and we are overjoyed that you had a great stay on the reserve.
We apologize for the poor Wi-Fi, but this is not the norm as we've invested a fortune in our Wi-Fi infrastructure and have an extensive network covering all our cottages & glamping tents, as well as most of the common outdoor areas. That said, unfortunately with the winter storms we've been experiencing in the Cape the local municipal transformer was severely damaged, and this affected our network for an extended time.
We are also susceptible to load shedding, but hopefully, this is short-lived as we are working on an extensive backup power solution for our guests.

Dit is 'n wonderlike plek en stil in die berge - Baie dinge om te doen vir beide volwassenes en kinders.

Ons was egter teleurgesteld met die akkommodasie - Dubbelbed was baie ongemaklik en daar was nie plek om bagasie neer te sit nie. Daar was nie elke oggend warm watter nie - selfs as dit nie loadshedding was nie. Die badkamerdeur se handvatsel het die heeltyd uitgeval omdat die deur na buite toe oopmaak en geen waarskuwing is daarop aangebring nie. Alles was elektronies gedoen - "incheck" en bestelling van addisionele hout is maar tog ook onpersoonlik.

It is a wonderful place and quiet in the mountains - Lots of things to do for both adults and children.

However, we were disappointed with the accommodation - Double bed was very uncomfortable and there was no place to put down luggage. It wasn't hot every morning - even if it wasn't loadshedding. The bathroom door handle kept falling out because the door opens to the outside and no warning was posted on it. Everything was done electronically - "checking in" and ordering additional wood is impersonal.

Why are there no jugs in the cottages.

We had a wonderful stay. Just the cottage was very hidden away. No sun on the stoep or inside. Very windy and cold at night. We could hardly speak to our families. The signal extremely poor. Me and my daughter loved the nature and the beautiful view. My grandson was, however, board. I suggest a TV in the cottages. The pool is too small though. Other than that we loved the peacefulness.

'n Beeldskone ligging, die kothuis (Quince) is met alles toegerus, skoon en netjies. Die natuurskoon en aktiwiteite maak dat ons sommer hierdie lente as 'n groep gaan teruggaan.

Naby genoeg aan die omliggende dorpe om rêrig die Robertson Wynvallei deeglik te verken, maar lekker weggesteek dat 'n mens net bewus is van die stilte en vreedsaamheid van die natuur. Die Winkel by Pat Busch is rêrig goed toegerus en al die belangrikste voorraad/items net in geval jy iets vergeet het. Pragtige staproetes, mooi swembad en die natuurskon is asemrowend. 'n Aanbeveling vir Pat Busch se bestuur: Oorweeg die oprigting van 'n "boetiek" kampeerterrein op die grasperk/oop terrein noord van die saal en net wes van die visvangdam. So ± 10 - 12 staanplekke maksimum. Julle sal hoog in aanvraag wees!

This review is being shown in its original language.
Translate to English.

A picturesque location, the cottage (Quince) is equipped with everything, clean and tidy. The scenery and activities make us want to go back as a group this spring.

Close enough to the surrounding towns to really thoroughly explore the Robertson Wine Valley, but well hidden that one is only aware of the silence and peacefulness of nature. The Shop at Pat Busch is quite well stocked and all the most important supplies/items just in case you forgot something. Beautiful hiking trails, nice swimming pool and the natural beauty is breathtaking. A recommendation to Pat Busch's management: Consider establishing a "boutique" campground on the lawn/open space north of the hall and just west of the fishing pond. So ± 10 - 12 pitches maximum. You will be in high demand!

Been there twice before - always a great stay!

An amazing place to stay and get away. Been there twice before, but this time did an 8k hike up the mountain and then back along the Karin Trail through amazing tropical forests. Also brought a SUP for the dam. Two nights is too short!

Stunning but lacked a personal touch.

Really loved the place but it lacked some personalization. Host checked in once but we had a power outage just after we arrived which we haven’t been informed about at all to prepare for. They had no candles or any alternative form of lighting either and with the wifi and signal down there was no way to reach anyone to arrange for it. We did the hike the next day but it was definitely not for beginners. Please note this if you do like hiking. Really stunning at the top but really difficult trail in the mountains so not for everyone. Also had some problems with the waterflow but we were warned about that in advance. Please note if you have a smaller car like a corsa or something the road in is okay but watch for rain as it might make it a little less okay. Its only about 2 km but just drive carefully. On a positive note: the place is stunning and clean. Lovely shower and bathtub and although the jacuzzi takes some time and wood, it is really phenomenal to use. Place was well kitted out for self catering and we did get some free amenities like wood that we really appreciated. We did feel quite safe and in our own little world which was great. Would’ve loved if someone could’ve shown us the property but given the circumstances i understand its not really possible. Loved the peace and quiet though.

Pat Busch Mountain Reserve 's response

Dear Altia

Thank you for your review. We have taken your feedback seriously and discussed this with our team on site. For the most part, our efforts at providing a safe, socially-distant stay during Covid times have been appreciated by our guests and visitors to the reserve.

Firstly, due to the Covid-19 pandemic & in the interests of hygiene & keeping our guests safe, it is worth clarifying that all high touch point items and soft furnishings have been removed from our units - which unfortunately may appear to slightly diminish that 'personal touch'. As explained in the booking information emailed to all guests, our Reception Office & Shop has been temporarily closed due to the pandemic and level 3 regulations, in the interests of promoting social distancing. We have purposefully done away with a high touch reception area and introduced an online check-in system, allowing guests to pre-order wood, ice, and essentials prior to arrival.

To comply with our Covid-19 protocols as per the email we sent you, we have adopted a system of self-check-in, where guests make their way to their units and make themselves at home on arrival (no need to formally report to our Reception). Our manager will visit at least once during your stay to make sure that everything is in order, all the while trying to respect our guest's privacy by not being intrusive, and also maintaining social distancing protocols. That said, if you would have liked a tour of the property this could have been requested on-site by appointment, and I'm sure our manager would have obliged.

Loadshedding is, unfortunately, a part of South African life these days, no matter where you are, and it does take us all by surprise from time to time. This coupled with the fact that we are based high in the mountains on a nature reserve (which is probably one of the reasons why you visited us), it does pose its own challenges as we are obliged to supply our own water & pressure. We also have to provide for our own communications (since Telkom does not service out-of-reach areas any longer) and we also build & maintain our own roads. This level of self-sufficiency is probably not apparent to most city dwellers. We do apologize that there wasn't an alternative light in your cottage, but we made a decision to remove all candles from our units due to several incidents. That said there is a Consol solar jar light outside the front door, and we do encourage guests to bring along torches. Unfortunately, when the power is down, our entire Wi-fi infrastructure goes down as well, including our water pressure booster pumps. However even with the booster pumps not working during load shedding, there is still water at the units, just not at such high pressure. The Wifi infrastructure which we have on the reserve has been installed at great expense to offer guests this convenience for free, however, we like most South African businesses, remain at the mercy of Eskom.

We do agree that although families & children have been enjoying our hikes for the last 30 years, the trails are not to be taken lightly, these are the Cape Fold Mountains after all, and should be approached with respect. There are however numerous easier walks to do on the reserve should the mountain hiking trails prove to be too challenging.

We are pleased you enjoyed the peace and quiet at Pat Busch Reserve.

The Units are overly equipped with everything one needs and more.

Just by us posting pictures we have loads of family members and friends enquiring about the reserve and ready to book their stay. The resort is a great getaway from the busyness and noise of city life. The reserve is peaceful with the sound of country air and the 360 degree picturesque views and more.

Onthou net jou hekkode voor jy op die grondpad ry, want daar is ononderbroke selfoonsein. Ons sal definitief terugkeer.

Between the mountains and nature. Blissful for the soul.

Wow! Beautiful, peaceful nature scenes. Mia and Johan welcomed us with open arms. It was my birthday and they took care of a bottle of champagne in our room. Thank you very much again. Just remember your gate code before you drive on the dirt road, because there is uninterrupted mobile phone signal. We will definitely return.

Rus, vrede en vryheid.

Die ontvangsdames en bestuurder was baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Ons het in Oak-kothuis gebly en die plekkie was perfek vir ons behoeftes! Niks gekort en mooi, skoon en netjies. Daar was ook baie min besoekers dus was dit heerlik stil. Die weer was nogal baie warm maar dit was heerlik koel binne die kothuis sonder enige waaiers of lugversorgers nodig. Ook heerlike skaduparkering vir voertuig reg langsaan onder die mooiste groot vyeboom. Vanaf die stoep is ook baie mooi uitsig oor berge en grasperke waar ons pragtige voëls, bokkies en 'n ferret gesien het. Ook 'n pragtige groot boom in voortuin waaronder ons in koelte kon kuier. Swembadarea was ook pragtig, netjies met genoeg skadu en stoele om dit en naby genoeg aan kothuis. Ons het dit verskriklik geniet en sal definitief weer 'n draai maak.

Rest, peace and freedom.

The receptionists and manager were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in Oak Cottage and the place was perfect for our needs! Nothing short and nice, clean and neat. There were also very few visitors so it was wonderfully quiet. The weather was quite warm but it was cool inside the cottage without any fans or air conditioners needed. Also lovely shade parking for vehicle right next to the most beautiful big fig tree. From the porch there are also beautiful views of mountains and lawns where we saw beautiful birds, bucks and a ferret. Also a beautiful big tree in the front garden under which we could visit in the shade. Pool area was also beautiful, neat with enough shade and chairs around it and close enough to cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely be back.

Rus vir die siel

Ons het in Oak Cottage oorgebly vir 2 nagte, dit was heerlik. Elke aand gebraai, en deur die dag visgevang en van die staproetes verken, ons het ook van Robertson se wynplase besoek. Alles was heerlik, niks luuks nie, net 'n lekker wegbreek sonder 'n geluid van 'n kar of stad se gedruis. Die badkamer kan wel aandag kry en ons het nie braaigereedskap gehad nie en kon darem by die bure leen. Verder sal ek dit vir enige een aanbeveel wat rus kort!

Rest for the soul

We stayed in Oak Cottage for 2 nights, it was lovely. Barbecued every night, and fished throughout the day and explored some of the hiking trails, we also visited some of Robertson's wine farms. Everything was delicious, nothing fancy, just a nice break without a sound of a car or city noise. The bathroom could use some attention and we didn't have barbecue tools and could at least borrow from the neighbours. Furthermore, I would recommend it to anyone who needs rest!

Thank you for the comments, and please accept my apologies for not having braai equipment at your cottage. The potjie and grids were probably removed to be thoroughly cleaned and unfortunately, our staff forgot to return it before your check-in. Please accept my apologies for this oversight. In the future please be advised that we do have an onsite reception office, with a shop, that is open on weekends, as well as an onsite manager who is available 24/7 on Whatsapp to assist our guests should they urgently need anything, we would've been happy to fix this issue right away :) We are also in the process of upgrading our units and have already started with Pine cottage which has recently been completely revamped.

Dear Marietha,
Thank you for the comments, we are very happy that you enjoyed the reserve and apologize for not having DStv, but we decided to rather install complementary Wi-Fi on the reserve and not televisions, although we do see the benefit of keeping children entertained. There is however plenty of things for them to do on the reserve during the day from hiking, exploring, fishing, swimming, walking, bike riding, and generally just being kids out in nature on a secure & safe mountain reserve. We have planned to upgrade the bathrooms of our cottages and have already started with Pine Cottage which has recently been completely revamped and upgraded, the other units will follow soon.
Keep well and all of the best from the Team at Pat Busch.

Al ons verwagtinge oortref.

Ons vakansie by Pat Busch was baie kort, maar al wat ek kan sê is "WOW"! Pat Busch het al ons verwagtinge oortref. Dis 'n pragtige plek. Daar is mooi staproetes en ook 'n dam met bootjies waar jy kan visvang. Ons huisie was skoon en baie goed toegerus met alles wat ons benodig het. Ons kan werklik nie met enige iets fout vind nie. Die bestuurder, Jaco, was altyd beskikbaar (via whatsapp) indien ons iets benodig het. Dis die beste verblyf wat ons nog in Robertson gehad het. Ons kan nie wag om weer terug te gaan nie!

Badkamer is baie oud en nie op standaard, en die bunker beads is onstabiel. Die bed in die kamer het ook nie 'n vereduvet opgehad soos op die website gespesifiseer was nie. Die res van die oord is baie netjies, sal in toekoms teruggaan, maar nie na die standaard cottages nie.

Dear Tessa, thank you for your comments. We are actually in the process of checking and replacing all the crockery and cutlery in all our accommodation. We have already upgraded half of the mattresses and bedding, and within the next few months, we will be upgrading the other half of the mattresses (replacing so many beds and bedding is a hugely expensive task and takes time). We hope you will come visit again to see the difference :) All of the best from the Pat Busch Team.

'n Heerlike rustige wegbreek in die natuur met pragtige staproetes.

Pat Busch is binne gemaklike trefafstand van die skiereiland vir 'n naweekwegbreek en as naweekwegbreek het dit vir ons al die boksies ge-"tick". 'n Goed toegeruste huisie met o.a.'n groot teepot, lekker groot bekers, 'n ordentlike skerp mes en 'n groenteskillertjie, en 'n gemaklike sitarea binne en 'n beskutte buite-stoep en pragtige staproetes. Ons het die Middelrugroete gestap en gaan beslis terugkom om van die ander roetes ook te doen.

A wonderful peaceful break in nature with beautiful hiking trails.

Pat Busch is within easy hitting distance of the peninsula for a weekend getaway and as a weekend getaway it ticked all the boxes for us. A well-equipped little house with, among other things, a large teapot, nice big mugs, a decently sharp knife and a vegetable peeler, and a comfortable seating area inside and a sheltered outside patio and beautiful walking trails. We walked the Middelrug route and will definitely come back to do some of the other routes as well.

Dit was so rustig en prentjiemooi in die natuur.

Was aangenaam verras met die omgewing en die netheid van die plek. Hout en vuuraanstekers 'n goeie idee saam met die ys in die vrieshokkie. Neem net eie skottelgoed wasmiddel. Heerlike speelplek vir kinders terwyl ouers die natuur geniet. Stap-roetes, en sentraal van omliggende dorpies soos Ashton, Montagu, Mcgregor ens.

It was so peaceful and picturesque in nature.

Was pleasantly surprised with the environment and the cleanliness of the place. Wood and fire lighters are a good idea along with the ice in the freezer. Only take your own dishwashing detergent. Great playground for children while parents enjoy nature. Walking routes, and central to surrounding villages such as Ashton, Montagu, McGregor etc.

Beeldskone ligging.

Lieflike ontspanne, haal diep en vry asem plekkie met regtig beeldskone ligging. Het dit werklik baie geniet en sal weer daar besoek aflê. Volgende keer net vir langer tydperk van niksdoen behalwe stap, lees, swem en natuurlik braai. Dis eenvoudige décor en rustic.

It was pleasant, but average.

It was beautiful on the farm, but if you want privacy, we would not recommend it. We stayed in Fig cottage and you can hear every word your neighbour said. The cottages are very close to each other. Very clean and neat though and we can recommend their beef sausage.

Thank you for your review and feedback, Gretna. We are sorry the cottage did not meet your expectations. We have two different ranges of accommodation at Pat Busch Mountain Reserve, our standard more 'budget-friendly' options of which Fig is one, and then we have our exclusive range of accommodation (Nightjar & Hadeda cottages) which offer the most privacy with private gardens, outdoor hammocks and air-conditioning. Perhaps one of the exclusive cottages would have been better suited for your stay. We hope you will try one of these options in the future. Best Regards, Lindi Busch

Wat 'n wonderlike plek om privaat te wees. Die rustigheid is goed vir 'n mens se siel.

Dit is 'n wonderlike plek. Daar is geen selfoon sein nie en jy kan al die diere duidelik hoor. Definitief is dit 'n plek waar jy privaat kan wees. Boonop kan jy al jou vleis by hulle bestel en dit is van die lekkerste beesvleis wat ek al ooit geproe het. Hul 'burgers' en biltong is my gunsteling. Fantasties.

What a great place to be private. The tranquility is good for one's soul.

It's a wonderful place. There is no cell phone signal and you can hear all the animals clearly. Definitely a place where you can be private. Plus you can order all your meat from them and it's some of the tastiest beef I've ever tasted. Their 'burgers' and biltong are my favourite. Fantastic.
