"It is a slightly older establishment however, t was clean, the staff were really nice, the location was great for me. Everything worked, internet, TV,aircon so I was really happy. It's a bit of a gem unfortunately not many people find it. The breakfast was great. So staying in that peaceful surrounding on a business trip was awesome"

"Our unit had a kitchen, lounge and en-suite bathroom as well as a little patio and private braai-area. It was clean and had lovely finishes. Will definitely recommend it as a stop-over en route to Kruger. Suki"

"We had a wonderful one night stay at Blue Cottages. It is very exotic with an extremely interesting jungle garden. The standard is not luxury but everything works: a/c, wifi on the veranda, clean swimming pool. Dinner is served in a romantic arbor, ok, but but not gourmet. But you get a lot for the overall low price. We had a lovely breakfast at the Monsoon Gallery before we left for Pretoria."

"We spent two wonderful days at Blue Cottage. The cottage was clean and spacious an the gardens were lush with many birds. Tony and Tersia are warm and friendly hosts, and have many stories to tell. Very pleasing stay."
