This is a nice old school place to stay, the atmosphere is great and relaxing and they have a spectacular view with really great food at the restaurant. Definitely a great place to stop after a long day.

A nice stay - lovely view from our room onto the Wagendrift Dam. Cosy pub, a lovely supper at the A la Carte Pheasant Restaurant. Easy to get to and from the N3. A great stop-off on the way home to Durban if you have the time.

I have stayed at Blue Haze Country Lodge before and enjoy each and every stay that I have had there. The rooms are always clean and the beds always comfortable. The pub/bar is well stocked and the restaurant provides good well made food. I don't book on line because our company books through our travel supplier so I haven't had... More

We spent one evening at the Blue Haze Lodge and it was probably enough. I booked online and the online site I used, didn't give you the option of selecting the rooms' proximity to each other. We travelled with Gran and the kids and selected two rooms. One room could sleep 4 and the other 2. The four sleeper has... More

Blue Haze was very nice, beautiful view over the dam and great garden. The bed was huge and comfortable. The breakfast though wasn't the best, I had a very greasy omelette. And the wifi was only free for the first 100 MB.

I could not get a response when I emailed to confirm the booking I had made on the internet. There was a very poor reception on arriving and our room was not safe at all. The top floor where our young children would sleep was only accessible via an extremely steep 'ladder'. There was no banister or railing preventing someone... More

I spent a few days here in December 2015 - traveled with family and friends. We had a great time - the views from the rooms and the poolside are amazing. The kids also had fun in the play area and with the horses. Dinner was yummy, and the manager was ever-present. The only reason I have rated it 4... More

What a find! A hidden gem with quick easy access from the N3 - only an hour and a half from Durban (if you stick to the speed limit!). The lodge has the MOST beautiful views over the dam, and my all time favourite part of our stay was sitting in the sunken spa bath in our room with a... More

Our business started up a new depot in Estcourt and I was booked in at Blue Haze. I was pleasantly surprised by how I enjoyed the stay.

I was here during a business trip and really have no complaints. Lovely accommodation, great food served at their restaurant, clean rooms and a lovely view. They have different specials each night from their menu, and separate bar area. Rooms are spacious, some overlooking the dam. Could get cold here at night. We experienced load shedding one evening, waited about... More
