Our Guest Experiences

This is an awesome Lodge! We had a lot of fun here. This place exceeded our expectations. Our three-bedroom Chalet was packed with whatever you need in a house. The likes of a fridge, stove with an oven, microwave, washing machine and not to mention a dishwasher, an iron and a toaster. Actually, anything you need for self-catering. Fully furnished bedrooms and lounge. There was also a fireplace to keep us warm. In all bedrooms, there is a heating system as well. They have a lot of hiking trails. In this place, you can also see many animals. I cannot mention all, but believe me, we had a lot of fun here.

I love Crystal Springs! It's clean and so relaxing - we are definitely coming again. The staff was so friendly, especially Miriam, Nomsa and Tshepo from Reception. We had a 'jol', thank you so much!

Perfect place to get away from the city buzz. We stayed in Chalet 110; it was just the perfect getaway! The Reception team is so professional, they know how to welcome and treat guests. Thank you, Crystal Springs, for such a lovely stay, we are definitely coming back in August.
