Guest Comments

We enjoyed our stay at the beautiful venue. The bathrooms are a little bit dated, but what a perfect setting. The fishing was the best I have experienced for a long while. We will definitely be back.

What a wonderful stay.
Now that the rains have filled the dam it needs to be stocked to be able to enjoy the fishing experience.
The most spectacular views and will return !!!!!


Royal Coachman is the ideal destination for those seeking tranquility in a secluded environment, with all the necessary creature comforts. The facilities are generally of a very high standard and we were not disappointed. Underfloor heating, electric blankets and two fireplaces make this a perfect setting for a mid-winter getaway to the Eastern Free State; not to mention the carefully thought-out sunny position of the entire house. We definitely recommend this venue.
