Genuine African experience,
It is a genuine African experience - management is very good. Staff excellent, central & close to hot baths. Security at hotel very good - safe parking.
Joyce, za2 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
The staff at Elephant springs are absolutely awesome! So friendly and helpful. The renovated rooms are very nice,the old rooms are not worth the money at all. But the staff did not hesitate to put us in a better room when we were not happy with the first two rooms. The hotel rooms could also do with mini bar fridges.

Fair 4.0
the staff were very friendly and helpful. the room that booked the two mattress that were combined were not comfortable at all. when I arrive there's was no water and load shading of which I understand unforeseen circumstances. there were huge cockroaches in my room.
Hetty, za2 night romance trip
Good 6.0
We booked simply because we wanted to take the kids to warmbaths for the weekend and this was the closest. The other guests were loud at night the noise was unbearable even after calling reception to control the noise. This place is suitable for the younger generation who just want to have a rowdy group weekend away.

Poor 2.0
I am disgusted to the core, was chased out before departure date, jailed and harassed because I stood my ground. My Take on it, RACIST and run down. The guest house down the road is a trillion times better...NEVER AND NEVER again....

Exceptional 10.0
Lovely Get-away
Lovely Weekend get-away spot with family, and the went the extra mile of giving extra beds at no additional cost. A big Thank you from the family and I.
Kusa, za1 night family trip
Poor 2.0
Hotel not up to standard.
This was a complete rip off for the price we paid. SO many things didn't work, it was very noisy and dirty. If the town was not full over the holiday weekend, I would have left and stayed somewhere else. Photographs are very misleading.
