We had a ball at Oaklands. Simon the host was a absolute hoot. Lots of laughs,beautiful rooms with fireplaces and newly renovated bathrooms and a lovely view. Great small deli with immune boosters made on the farm- apparently highly in demand at Wellness Warehouse and Jacksons Food market. The spelling mistake "dicked" chicken on the chalkboard menu instead of "pickled"...

After reading all the great reviews we were really curious about this country reatreat. We weren't disappointed. The Tully family is running the show smoothly. The views are out of this world and we enjoyed hiking in the area (with the 4 dogs accompanying us). Clarens wasn't too far away and the drive through 'Golden Gate' was memorable. Breakfast was...

I had the priviledge of spending a blissful week at Oaklands while attending a training programme. The rooms are lovely, the food was heaven and the hosts have just the right mix of respect for privacy and customer attention. I will be back for a Family vacation!

Delightful stay My only complaint was that I had to leave! We spent a evening at Oaklands on our way to the Drakensberg. The rooms were large and full of luxury with the most amazing views over the polo fields so check which rooms you are booking. A lovely place to relax. The food was great, healthy and fresh! You...

This was a really wonderful discovery. The hosts make you feel like family from day 1. We spent 4 nights there with 3 young children. The food is out of this world and the tranquillity of the scenery is outstanding. The thing that makes this place a winner in my mind is the hosts and how they make each every...

We booked in here on the recommendation of a friend who stays in the area and were very happy on all points. A 7km drive on a good dirt road takes you into the Drakensberg foothills. There are quite a few accommodation options - we stayed in the suites, which each had their own little garden. The bedroom was large...

We stopped here for a quick lunch today on our way back to Johannesburg from Nottingham road.... what a treat. It's a bit of a drive of the main road on good dirt but so so worth it. We had burgers, Beef Pie and a chicken salad. All 3 dishes were excellent, Tasty and great value. All food is sourced...

We stayed here for 2 nights the past weekend (March 2017). We had a small basic room which was very comfortable and always kept clean. There was a fan in the room and a fire place for winter if you want to use it. We had nothing but smiles, greetings and excellent service. The owners are like family after the...
