My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Dragons peak. We were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff members. The hiking trails were very enjoyable although a picnic spot would be very much appreciated. The accommodation was lovely and cute. When our bath leaked and we reported it we were immediately moved to other accommodation and the staff...

Good, clean, affordable and excellent location for activities in the Drakensberg. The staff was welcoming, the food good, particularly the generous portion of oxtail stew on Sunday evening!Although there was snow on the mountains the venues were warm and good heaters in the rooms.

Dragon Peaks is ideally situated close to many tourist attractions in the Drakens Berg. As an added bonus, it is next to the Drakensberg Boys' Choir's school. It is surrounded by some of the most beautiful mountains of the Drakensberg. The accomodation is good and clean and caters for a variety of prices. There is a lovely swimming pool, and...

The reunion went off well and we were treated with respect and dignity. I think all went off well and the food was very good. The restaurant staff treated us very well. The pub was lovely and warm and we could enjoy watching the rugby.

May is definitely the ideal time of the year, with the Autumn colors and blankets of leaves as a backdrop. This is the second time that our support group has come away together, and we love the idillac setting. There are so many activities for the whole family to enjoy, and the facility is always very clean. There was one...

There is just nothing quite like the Berg, and Dragon Peaks makes our stay there comfortable always. Don't worry about having left something behind, they have everything you might need. The best of the best is watching my own children explore safely as I did growing up at Dragon peaks. A very special, magical place!!!

We slept with our camper. The campsites were good and a lotions were also very good. Only thing I remember is, there was only one ablutions facility with hot water( cause of low season). The ablutions could do with some renovation work.

Dear thomasdJ488WV Thank you for your review. We do only offer one ablution facility in the low season. This is also to keep the cost down to you our valued guests and to keep our resort at the rates we do. Our campsites are currently closed and we are in the process of doing renovations in these ablutions. I trust...
