Recent guest reviews

We have just visited the place for the first time. The timing was just right as it started to snow upon our arrival. The place is very quiet which is totally suitable for relaxation. The staffs are friendly and helpful. Will return for more holiday vacations.

Great get away. Our forth time and we will definitely return for more. The location is perfect, the road was a bit worn out this time but that's what you will expect from bad weather. The managers went out of their way to help individual needs. Such a gem in SA

We called ahead to find out if we could come up for a tea and scones. Explained we had dogs and they advised we could come up. Arrived there to a very lukewarm welcome and were advised to sit outside on the deck. This in itself was not a problem as the view was magnificent, however no service followed. I eventually went in to ask if we could order tea and scones. When it arrived, it looked lovely but was as hard as a rock 🙁 ... managed one bite and had to leave the rest. V disappointing.

Excellent hotel with lovely service. Beautiful setting with opportunity for hiking, cycling etc. We had a great time birdwatching (awesome eagle sightings) and identifying plants and small animals. One of few 5star establishments that really cater for kiddies! Our 3 and 6 year olds loved it too! We all felt well rested after our 3night stay.

A place just between Heaven and Earth! We have been spoilt rotten by the staff, chef and landscape. what an awesome experience! thank you Tenahead for being excellent in all you do. I will definitely visit again.

The drive and the weather made the whole weekend very intimate. Got to spend time with my husband for the 1st time without our daughter. We enjoyed the food and horse riding. Rooms kept warm 24/7. Love it and the fact that there's no network connection, allows you to really connect with your partner.

Excellent place to just unwind.Difficult place to reach but the trip is part of the adventure.beautifull surroundings ,large windows from all parts of the lodge to get good views.If travelling in winter dress warm.

Spectacular location. Tremendous service Very well prepared delicious menu I would recommend Tenahead to my family and friends and hope they take this road less travelled road trip I hope that I will have opportunity to travel back there some day soon Warm and cost accommodation

Excellent stay. Very very helpful and caring managing team. No problem was too much for them in spite of Eskom power failure for 3 days. I thank Neil and William for their perseverance to solve my vehicle problems. Food was excellent and plentiful.

My partner and I visited during the first snowfall of the winter. What a lovely magical place! The welcome was warm, the food delicious, the rooms decorated with attention to detail and the views and walks were spectacular! The road is best managed with a 4x4 (given that it had snowed) - but I'd imagine that in good weather a 2x4 with good clearance would do the trick. I would love to visit again!
