Guest reviews

Blue Sky Mining Backpackers & Lodge

Enjoyed every day there. Romy and Barret and Kayden are very nice people.
We have already sent new people to them at the end of this month. I would really rate there accommodation.

Tracey Myburgh from South Africa, 12 Apr 2010

We really enjoy our stay.

It was an all new experience because we are used to holiday flats. We enjoyed the interaction between the guests and met interesting people. We surely will do it again.

Marieta Botha from South Africa, 29 Mar 2010

The place was clean, neat

First time staying at a backpackers, enjoyed it very much and will do it again as i am a single parent with an teenage child and it is more cost effective for me than to rent a chalet or flat. The place was clean, neat and well run and we got exactly what we expected and more. The photos on the internet was a true reflection.

Lynette de Wet from South Africa, 04 Jan 2010

The facilities were really lovely.

The owners friendly. The cleaning services fantastic.
A couple of things they might consider adding are mirrors to rooms/bathrooms, clothes horses for wet towels etc, and of course, the mattresses need changing. They are made of sponge and do not offer support at all. I had to sleep on the floor to enjoy a proper night's sleep.
For the rest, I enjoyed a wonderful stay and my children did not want to come back home.
Thank you for everything.

Linda Wolfaardt from South Africa, 12 Jan 2009
