    Don't hesitate to book

    Fantastic hotel, stunning scenery of the Drakensburg mountains, and many walks for all levels of walkers starting out straight from the hotel. The room rate also includes a buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner - as well as both morning tea and afternoon tea served on the terrace. There are a range of activities organised as part of your stay, including evening entertainment and guided walks. Highly recommended.

  • 6.0.Good

    Lovely location, great facilities for kids, but quite dated and needs to be spruced up a bit. Bedrooms are basic. Restaurant is ok, but a lot of the food is re-used the next day.

    Spectacular location, good food & service

    Great stay in a wonderful location. All inclusive resort (except for activities such as golf & quad bikes and drinks). Buffet meals, generally good quality and unlimited quantity + afternoon tea and cake. Chalet room very comfortable, HUGE bed, good shower - though I can't wait for someone to introduce thermostatic shower valves to South Africa. Great scenery and walking from the door. Good value for UK residents.

    Excellent location to explore the drakensburg mountains. The room was perfect, big and comfortable, and looking out over the mountains. There are two pools, one of which is heated which is great as it wasn’t all that warm when we visited. The mini golf was great fun. The food was buffet style, with a carvery area and noodle section.
