Drakensberg is a beautful Environment for Young and old. Mountains and Hills, so you can expect that hotels are Not luxurous. Like Sandford country Hotel! Parkingplace is free, then you See the Main Cottage, with a Reception on the Left Side. Receptionist was ok, but seemed to have other Things to do then checking in New visitors. All had to do that we could Not decide quickly enough if we would eat there or somewhere Else. Prices of Food and Drinks are okay in this cottage and serveStaff is Nice. We decided to eat the first Night out. Second Night ate here: Nice! Breakfast is also Nice. Birds sometimes come Inside the House, but Did Not matter. There are facilities such As a pooltable or games, for which you have to Pay. In the condition it was i wondered Why? Pool outside was cold and Not clean.
Tv, w-LAN not in our Room. Therefor we had a spare room where Kids could Sleep. Bathroom ok. But Soap and Shampoo Bad. And i don't like to have a warm and Cold crane in the sink. I would suggest this hotel to 50plus People, because it's Not noisy and i guess in Summer they have Nice braai-evenings, because the Garden has the facilities. If Not i would suggest so.
For People under 50: there are nicer places in this Area, where the facilities are more Updated.
