I have just upgraded my original booking of a CH2S to a Honeymoon cottage with the call centre. I was wondering if anyone knows whether the cottages have outdoor braai facilities - it doesn't say on the website, only mentions a kitchen. Also, the online availability seems to indicate there are now 4 cottages, whereas before the renovations there were 3 - is this correct?

Also, the call centre applied the conservation fee against the increased charge for the cottage, meaning there is a balance of R18 for accommodation plus the conservation fee to pay on arrival. The confirmation letter says "Provisional Reservation" at the top, but I was assured I could pay the balance on arrival. Should I be concerned? I would hate to lose the booking for R18.

Howzit TAL & welcome to the forum.

The reservation should be ok. What does it say about paying the balance.

BTW, I would have thought that the conservation fee is payable on ENTRY, as it is a daily charge.

Have you considered getting a Wild Card?

Howzit!
I decided to be pro-active and see if the reservation had updated on the online reservations system. It did after about 3 hours, so I paid the balance online and now have a proper confirmation letter - phew.
I did look into the Wildcard, but since we are not resident in South Africa it was really expensive, much more than 2 days fee for Tsitsikamma.
Any thoughts on the braai?

Hi Tal

Yes they do have an outdoor braai. It is behind the enclosure (for the wind and privacy) in the foreground of the photo.

Enjoy your stay.
