"We did not make use of Badfontein's camping facility. I was deeply disappointed and shocked that was offered to us. This facility are definitively not for the use of normal caravans and the camping sites and ablution facility was a shock. I will never ever make use of this in my life again.Please, I need a refund on this reservation.Thanks,Hannes Myburgh"

"I stayed in the cottage next to the hot spring. It was tiny and simple but clean and nicely furnished, with everything you could wish for. Outside was nothing but the reeds full of bishop birds, the little hot spring (which I had almost entirely to myself) and fields stretching all around. Very soul-soothing, though perhaps not suitable for city dwellers looking for bright lights and five-star luxury."

"The cottage was clean, however minimal information was given on booking as to procedure and what extra's (i.e. meals) were available. More info would be great. The venue was very accommodating when we had to change our booking by 2 days.We did find the beds extremely uncomfortable and did not sleep well."
"Beautiful guest farm."

"What a beautiful farm. The ablutions were clean, the camping was good and there is even a braai area so we didn't have to use camping stoves. The camp terrain is a very short walk from the river. There is also a natural spring swimming pool on premises."
"Peaceful in relaxing place."

"The campsite next to the Orange River is nice. We enjoyed the beach but some shade and a place to sit down for sundowners would be nice."
