Having been turned off by the lunch buffet just by the sheer looks of it, we turned to la carte, hoping to get better food. But everything we got seemed to have been frozen before and arrived rather wobbly and lukewarm. So, see that you eat lunch somewhere else and then enjoy the scenery. BTW, we had to pay 50...

Perhaps it was unfortunate that we travelled here on the Sunday of a four day public holiday, on the way in, drunks and other urinating well wishers contrasted with the ladies in their pristine Sunday best. We'd done innumerable miles on dirt as well as single track roads but this trip had a niggle of insecurity. The scenery surrounding this...

Stayed here for 2 nights in room 201 - a superior room - from 23 March 2017 The drive to the hotel is nothing short of spectacular – rural houses of all constructions dotted throughout the landscape – switch back tarred roads – with the views of the Drakensburg mountains unfolding – we approach the hotel on a day of...

There is no doubt that the location and surrounding scenery of this place is absolutely stunning and there is definitely plenty to do, but unfortunately some of the staff we met, let it down on a grand scale. The reception staff were disinterested and not very helpful. We were made to feel like an inconvenience when asking for information about...

We close this hotel complex for our last 3 days in SA, before leaving through J'Burg.We are very glad we did. I cannot say it was easy to find as the address was Winterton which in fact is around 40Km away. So after a long drive from St Lucia on the KZN coast we were very happy to arrive at...

Our room was large and comfortable and indeed the location is spectacular. I loved the swimming pool and I enjoyed the horse riding and the mini golf. The dinner buffet is extensive and generous and our waitress was helpful. All in all a great place to stay. The hotel just lacked a certain something that makes it truly excellent. But...

Nice hotel with great mountain views. The rooms are large with separate bath and shower, however, the bed was firm. Excellent food was served both for a buffet dinner and breakfast. The staff were helpful and the hotel offers a wide range of activities.

This was the only large resort hotel we stayed in during our trip and overall we very much enjoyed our stay. We especially loved our 'honeymoon' executive suite which was a luxurious villa at the edge of the site with just stunning views of the mountains. It had spacious sitting and dressing areas, a large terrace and garden area with...

Our bedrooms were the superior ones facing the mountains and excellent. Comfortable beds and sitting area were in front of huge floor to ceiling windows with the most breath taking views of the rugged mountains. The bathroom was large and well appointed spotlessly clean but the shower has no door and water sprays over the floor no matter how hard...
