"As assured by Bernally's, this is not luxurious living, I did miss having a toilet to go to at night (we took a simple fisherman's cabin), but we got away for a few days on a very tight budget and that's all that matters to us. 1 out of 3 nights was extremely cold so that unit is probably best for a spring / summer sleep. I will definitely go again, but will opt for a better unit. They have the most friendly dog who visited our unit every night. Found the ablutions really tidy and got hot water out the shower (very rare for ablutions). The other guests also respected everyone in terms of music etc."
"The peacefulness, the cute campsite we had, the perfect setting."

"Daar is nie 'n dam soos op die fotos nie. Stroom is verskiriklik nou waar jy moet visvang. Ons het wel vyftien visse gevang.Fasiliteite is nie na wense nie. Klein boompies waar ons gekamp het. Ons het vroeer vertrek a.g.v van die hitte wat ondraaglik was. Abusieblokke te ver van dam no 4."
