We took our 3 young grandchildren on a holiday in Karoo, and this was one of the places we stayed at for the day. We stayed in the wooden Cabins, and they are perfect for a rustic holiday, equipped for self catering. They offer these amazing hot water pools that truly are the best, no matter what the weather is...

The Warmwaterberg Spa is part camp-site, part accommodation. We stayed in 4 of the wooden cabins for a night as part of the road trip. Check-in was quick and efficient - we then drove around to our cabins, where you can directly park any vehicles you have. Accommodation was as clean as one can expect from a wooden cabin. I...

The entire experience was really terrible, no value for money what so ever. The impression once there was to try and milk the consumer for all they are worth. You pay all immediately on arrival. They even charged for a single allergy tablet. It was just horrendous. The food mediocre at best and the warm pools? I wouldn't be able...

We had one night in our newly restored unit at the baths and found it most relaxing. Reception was easy and relaxed. If you need hot water and nature to restore your soul, this place will be it! OUR UNIT was lovely and most comfortable, just loved the indoor huge mineral bath tub -giant size. A touch of 'plaas' for...

This historical spa is the perfect retreat to wind down and take in the fresh air of the Klein Karoo! We especially love the trail over the hill, covered with geological and volcanic treasures followed by the healing waters!

Had an amazing time. Although basic, all facilities are adequate and kept clean at all times. Spent a lazy afternoon in the hot water pool while the air temperature bairly reached 10 degrees. Was a fantastic contrast in temperatures. Restaurant is definitely good value for money, and the meal provided was a good hearty traditional Karoo meal. Loved every moment...

It looks shambles. Staff is friendly ..pool is OK but the campsite looks bad. Sites are long and narrow..so one ends up close to Ines neighbour. The ablution block is really below standards...no privacy ..one has to step out of the shower in view of the others...only one tap...no temperature control....and we had no warm water...

We camped one night with a group of 10 people. We had a large grass area to ourselves. The other camp sites seems a bit small and squashed in. The place made me a bit sad, a bit "run-down". We had an ok meal at the restaurant, after waiting a very long time, but they did not charge us corkage....

Shocking accommodation - nr 7 wooden chalet!!! Paid R1050 per night. Stove hadn't been cleaned. The inside of the bottle they used to put dishwashing liquid was not appealing at all. Didn't bother wiping shelf on mirror where toothpaste was on. Dishes were not clean. A place can be old, but it must definitely be clean. Such an amazing venue...

The kiosk is stocked with basic provisions and the bottle store stocks local wines. The Lapa has a restaurant offering country fare and a bar. There are three outdoor pools, two hot and one cold. The temperature in the pools varies from 25 to 42 degrees C.

“Bath houses if you can afford are best. Bathhouse 1 and 2 accommodate 4 in a very old quirky building.”
