"Misty Mountain chalet in Sabie"
28 Sep 2017
By Tebatso Serage
"Loved: views from property, supply of wood for fireplace inside chalet, decent breakfast included, common lounge and games area and the very friendly and helpful staff. They offered numerous activities but can't speak on them as we didn't use any.Needs improvement: checkin/booking service, cleanliness of bathroom and kitchenette/crockery, upkeep of children's playground equipment. TV not available in individual rooms.The property was too close to the main road, so we heard mainly traffic noise and didn't get to enjoy the wonderful views and serenity which is expected from a weekend getaway in Mpumalanga. This property is best for short stays by passing travelers.It is family friendly and a decent no fuss place."

"We stayed over at Misty Mountain just for one night. The personnel were very helpful, friendly and true ambassadors of this beautiful setting in the mountains. Do yourself a favour and pick your stay carefully. The soft rain and mist added to the romantic atmosphere and perfect accommodation. We wished the stay could have been longer."

"It's with mixed emotion that I'm writing this review.......Don't stress nothing bad at all. It's more a case of us being somewhat sad that we had to come home after spending 4 glorious days with you and your crew at the Misty mountain resort over easter It goes without saying that you have a winning formula at your resort. The venu, staff, food, location is amongst the best out there. Add to that your friendliness,hospitality and good old South African smiles, made this a truly remarkable stay, and one we would like to repeat many times over. A special thanks to the management team.....and Mable for this out of this world experience......and the super delicious food that rivals any top restaurant in South Africa...... Also it needs to be mentioned that this places food is seriously good. Your cook have a natural nack for the exact dish you present on your menu. Please send our compliments to him."
