"Loved the location. Everything well thought out. Thoughtful touches like warming our room before arrival and milk in the fridge showed extra care. Candles in the on the jacuzzi and solar light jars added that extra bit of magic.Charming and winsome place. Will certainly make it a regular stopover."

"Otters Den cottages all have a beautiful view of the lions river with an amazing jacuzzi-bath. As we went in the middle of winter the only things we really missed, and that we feel would have made our stay perfect were a fireplace and satelite TV. It obviously depends on what your looking for. We've been to the midlands a few times and we've done all the touristy things, so we were looking for a cozy comfy relaxed two days of lying around reading and drinking hot chocolate all day. Otherwise the cottage was neat and clean and had all the basics to prepare a simple meal."
