Very Good

Review by Ridw (Johannesburg)

An absolutely stunning location. My wife and I spent our one year anniversary in Suite 4 of El Sheddai and were both blown away. Not only did the room and view of the dam complement each other, but the service and hospitality of Susan and Peter was as warm as could be. Apart from one or two glitches with the breakfast and the Wi-Fi, we loved our stay and would recommend it without hesitation.

Review by Rashmika (Johannesburg)

My friend and I stayed at El Shadai from Friday until Sunday. We were celebrating his birthday (17th January). My expectations and standards are usually quite high but I can say with the utmost certainty that our weekend far exceeded my expectations. El Shadai is absolutely stunning. It's very clean and neat. The hosts Susan and Pieter and very hospitable and made our stay very comfortable. From the friendly dogs to the breakfast, everything simply added to the perfection! The pool and braai area overlooks the dam and it was just beautiful to spend our evenings there. Our room had a lovely private balcony that led to a spectacular view of the dam while we enjoyed sundowers in the afternoon. The place is also well situated and close to all the fun activities that Harties has to offer. I could not be happier with our time spent there. I will definitely visit again because it's sure worth that 5 star rating!

Review by Dimakatso Mogale (Vereeniging)

My husband and I celebrated our birthdays( 13 & 14 September) at El Shaddai. Its a very nice place for relaxing and spending quality time , right up the mountain with beautiful view of dam. When cruising by boat you can see the guest house up the mountain, it out-stands its self. The hospitality and food was amazing. we surely going back and definitely recommend to anyone .Thanks Susan & Pieter

Review by Linda (Moreletapark)

Absolutely stunning! We booked suite 4 and it was worth every cent and very good value for money. The room was immaculate and the view breath-taking! We lounged in the splash pool overlooking the dam - very relaxing.
The service was warm and friendly.

Review by Julius (Johannesburg)

Die geriewe is uit die boonste rakke, die uitsig is fantasties en die diens was baie goed en Susan en Pieter was uitstekende gashere. Ons sal beslis weer daar oorbly en kan El Shadai vir enigiemand aanbeveel. Baie dankie.

Review by Charmaine Brown (JHB)

Your place is stunning and views out of this world. We enjoyed the magnificent breakfast and lovely room.
The only thing I need to perhaps ask is that we would have loved to swim as this is what the web had indicated however the pool really was not up to scratch to do that.
The towels need replacing everyday and the first day although they were on the floor they were just put back onto the rack on both rooms. 2nd day they were replaced. other then that if these 2 things are done it is definately a Top class place to stay and value for money.
