We (two couples travelling together) were impressed with The Homestead. We booked it because it was the only one available for the May day long-week end in the area (as we left the booking to the last minute). However, we were pleasantly surprised. The breakfast and dinner served was delicious, which we will remember for a long time. The buffets...

The Homestead in Geluksburg is kilometres away from anywhere, but seriously worth the trip. We stayed for 3 days over New Year's and although nobody had ever heard of Geluksburg before, we were so glad we found it. We were searching for a place half ways between Johannesburg, where brother-in-law lives, and Durban, where we live so we could spend...

An outstanding venue if you are looking for a non-commercial country retreat. Excellent clean accomodation with amazing homey meals. Friendly warm hospitable owners and staff.Taking a step back in time with fascinating history of the white tribe in the nearby lost valley and exciting alternative route up the scenic Middledale pass to Harrismith. Probably the best value for money get...

Lovely relaxing place. Dinner and breakfast included which was just as well as the nearest town is 20km+ away on a gravel road. Food was generous and varied. They went out of their way to accommodate my vegetarian husband. Cell phone signal is intermittent which probably explains why it's so peaceful. Lovely spot to explore northern Drakensburg. Not fancy but...

On a trip doing research I stayed over at The Homestead for 2 nights. Penny and her mom gave me invaluable information on the region and what there is to see and experience. The accommodation itself is clean and although nothing extravagant, it has all you need for a comfortable stay. A lovely place in a quiet area - just...

Found a good deal on Groupon whilst holidaying in Durban. Booked and emailed Pennie re one of the party being a vegetarian. Made very welcome on arrival, taken to our rooms which were basic, but clean, well furnished and just what we required as a base. Meals were home made and plentiful in a buffet style help yourself. Staff were...
