Harkervile forest lodge is set in a beautiful scenic location. It offered our family all the quiet we needed with many outdoor activities just minutes away. This was definately the best value for money. The children loved the play area, the campsites were extremely well kept, the bathrooms clean. Definately one of my new favourites :)

Elna at reception served us in a very special way. The staff were friendly and conciderate. We stayed in one of the cabins that was well equipped with basic essentials. Our son enjoyed the activities.

We stayed at Harkerville forest lodge for a weekend to attend a family wedding. The service was very good and the room spacious, neet, clean and comfortable. The wedding venue was beautiful and food excellent!

My son stayed at the lodge during a school trip. He had a wonderful time there, but unfortunately lost his phone during the stay. Four days after he left the lodge, the staff found the phone and went to extraordinary lengths to track him down. They have arranged for the phone to be sent to us. THANK YOU for your...

Just one comment the monday morning when the cleaning lady came to clean she never washed our dishes. May i also comment that your view of your tv is very bad located. What about having it on a swivel arm by the room area which is more visible. Breakfast was good and so your reception lady was helpful.

On arriving at the campsite we were informed that the team had to move a gazebo from an adjacent site so that we could get or 4x4 trailer in to the site. This sound strange as surely know we are arriving they would ensure that people were not encroaching on our site. It turns out that the sites are so...

We had a very nice a quiet time there. It was very relaxing. Harkervile is very secure and safe place to visit, especially when you want quietness. we would just recommend that all the camping/caravan sites get their own braai spots, our camping site was at the back and we didn't have one. Tut overall we had a great time...

We enjoyed our stay, friendly service & clean facilities. The only negatives I might raise is that there are not enough cupboard space or washing line for wet clothes. We will definitely visit again. Thank you for making our holiday memorable

We liked the facility, the warm and friendly reception and the excellent breakfast. The log cabin was a bit to small but acceptable for a sleep over. Would like to use the alternative accommodation in future
