I was travelling with 2 Canadian friends and thought this would be a novel experience for them...we all loved it! Delightful rondavels, impeccable, with everything you might need...even a hair dryer! The property is neat and tidy and well maintained and cared for. The staff are delightful, food delicious...very thoughtfully prepared and presented. Highly recommended!

Very nice premises, we (couple) stayed in room 5A. The 'hut' was very clean and tidy, equipped with fridge and airco. Swimmingpool is small but sufficient. Extremely friendly staff! They serve yoghurt with fresh fruit and cereal to start with for breakfast, after that you'll have the choice of scrambled, boiled or fried eggs with bacon, tomato and/ or mushrooms....

Thank you for your wonderful, informative review! We're delighted the breakfast was up to standard and hopefully kept you going during your safari. The quad bike tour is fun, and very popular in the area. Next time, try out the canoe safari too - peaceful, teeming with wildlife and a great start to the day. We hope to see you...

We stayed one night at Chrislin and had a really great experience. Rooms are decorated with style, you can enjoy chilling in the big garden area with swimming pool. The staff was very kind and helpful, they even prepared us a back-pack breakfast as we had to leave early in the morning. Chrislin has its own restaurant where you can...

Nice lodge with lots of green. The chef is good in braai! The staff sometimes a bit slow and not fully aware of everything. Getting up 1,5 earlier then you should for a game drive is not something you want! Go to crisscross adventiers for a better package deal and take the river safari!!

Our three nights at Chrislin have been amazing..the houses are well maintained and fit in the landscape. The pool and the restaurant were also always clean and the staff really helped us with all our questions. If you want you can have dinner each night at their own restaurant at sneezewoods (for 220R you receive a three course meal) which...

During our roundtrip we stayed in Chrislin for two nights and enjoyed it very much. Great place to stay, big garden to relax and enjoy the sun, nice swimmingpool. We loved the big german shephard dog that was walking around and visited us when we were sitting outside the hut. The hut was big, clean and cosy. Good bathroom, beds...

The staff was very nice and helpful since the moment of reservation until we checked out. The hotel has a very nice area, and the rooms are very comfortable. Breakfast was very good, freshly prepared at the time of service. The location is good for going to Addo park.

We had a great time at Chrislin. The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed, the staff very friendly and professional, and the food was excellent. All in all a very successful stay while we were visiting Addo. They recommended some other very good local places to eat supper although they put on a good evening meal themselves.
