Arrived at the lodge and was assigned a unit that was not cleaned. I highly recommend not wasting your time going to this lodge. It does not provide any value for money nor does it leave one feeling relaxed. To ensure a fair / unbiased review, here are pros and cons of staying here. Pros: 1) Breathtaking views of the Cathkin Peak and Champagne Castle mountain ranges 2) Hammock, trampoline and pool on site Cons: 1) Cleaning staff are slow 2) All appliances (iron, ironing board etc) are in terrible quality 3) Bathroom bins were all broken 4) Wifi is useless 5) The games room hardly had any games in there In summary, I would NOT RECOMMEND staying at this venue.

As some friends invited us to visit them while they were in a timeshare at Cayley Lodge, we booked in for one night at Cayley Mountain resort. At the outset, I should say that we are pensioners and did not take advantage of the numerous activities on offer, and I would recommend this resort to people with young children. Pictures on the website show stunning views, but we were put into room 32b which overlooked a car park. The unit was spotlessly clean, but had a bar fridge which shone a light onto the bed and there is a side window with a louvre blind which lets in the light, onto the bed, from a powerful outside light. We had booked on a B and B basis, but left in the early morning as we were both wide awake. I would not dissuade anyone younger from visiting this resort, but I would recommend checking on the site of the accommodation. Incidentally, the unit occupied by our friends was very nice and overlooked Bell dam. The unit also had a huge indoor fireplace, and they thoroughly enjoyed their week there. If visiting, be prepared for an atrocious access road, although that is not unusual in South Africa! TonyC Howick.

We had a lovely time at Cayley Lodge. The resort offers daily horse riding which my daughter enjoyed. The mountain itself is very peaceful and because we were there in early January we were treated to spectacular lightning storms which lit up the mountains and were rather breathtaking.
