We spent only one night there while driving the Garden Route, but could have stayed much longer. Spent a couple of hours in the spa relaxing after the drive, then had a delicious meal - felt like we were welcomed home by family. Diesel the "jungle cat" curled up with us and slept all night on our bed! Loved it!!!

We had a stunning time at Trogon House. Loved the special location. The staff was very helpful and made you feel at home (Lize-Mari in particular) We booked a master-suite (room 1) which was very pretty. However, located in the main 'house' which caused some noise in the (early) morning when staff assembled and started to prepare breakfast. That however...

* The B&B is situated in the middle of the forest with excellent views into the trees. * The SPA is wonderful * The rooms itself are well equiped (even if I wouldn't need a tv in such a location) but we had some problems with the infrastructure. Coming back from dinner the electricity in our room didn't work and...

Trogon House is tucked away in the forest down a lumpy bumpy "road" giving it a sense of perfect isolation. The initial impact is completely unique almost magical, a beautiful glass and wooden building hidden away in the trees accessed by winding boardwalks. On arrival we were shown around and made to feel very welcome. Our room was large and...

Spend a magical couple of nights here in July. Words cannot describe the location. Truly unique an magical in the forest. We stayed in a forest suite and felt cut off from the rest of the world. Perfect place for a romantic getaway. Some small problems have to be mentioned. The road leading to the property is horrible at best...

We were celebrated our honeymoon and enjoyed our stay! The place is very special and beutiful, just inside a forest! The atmosphere was very private and calm, and the pools in the day and the fireplace at the might were great. We recieved the only room without big windows to the forest and really got disappointed, try to ask a...

We really liked the setting and location of the house which gave us a very peaceful feeling staying at Trogon. However, we are not satisfied with the management during our stay since they never asked us how our stay were or didn't seem to care much about us as guests, also we are not cat-people and Trogon's house cat Diesel...

Top staff, heavenly spaces, delicious meals ... We found a forest for a moment but the memory will stay with us forever ... Everyone has special times in their lives but this is one that will stay with us forever ... We stayed an extra night because we simply just didn't want to leave ...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Trogon House & Forest Spa offers exquisite luxury, suspended in the tree tops of a forest reserve that stretches untamed along the Tsitsikamma mountains and beyond. Elevated into the tree tops, the lodges embrace the forest with see-through glass walls and sky-lit roofs, creating a true "nature forest" experience. What really sets Trogon House apart, is the absolute privacy and exclusivity in the midst of nature's pristine beauty. ... more   less
