Reviewed 10 July 2014

The service from booking to departing was excellent. The rooms are comfortable and the beds and bedding lovely. To further improve there could be bottled water in die fridge. Breakfast was lovely but if on business it being the only meal until the evening, it would be nice if the warm part was also self help, as an extra slice of bacon or sausage would be nice. Cheese as part of the breakfast with the toast and marmelade will also be nice. I would most certainly recommend, and also stay there again.

What a lovely stay at Rose Cottage, The owners are so welcoming and helpful, the cottage was very well appointed with all amenities and comfort touches. The lovely cosy fire on the coldest night i can recall, was a sheer pleasure. Delicious breakfast, served with great care and attention to detail.We really enjoyed the hospitality we received.. Our only draw back was that it was a bit far from our business appointment. But it did give us the opportunity of exploring new areas that we would have missed had we stayed anywhere else. A real win!

Fanatastic Service, friendly staff, good location and excellent value for money and great breakfast in the morning. I will stay there again and possibly take my kids back with me for a weekend away sometime.

Wonderful reception, we've been treated with even the smallest of wishes we expressed, nothing was a problem. Lovely setting with beautiful trees, special experience driving in with magical fall colour. Blesbok chasing dogs is hilarious.

My husband and I stayed here between backpacking trips. I cannot recommend Winterton Country Lodge highly enough. Amazing and affordable food, comfortable and spacious cottage, attentive and informative host, beautiful grounds. And friendly house cats and beagles to make the stay feel a little bit more like home. A great find!

This is a great guesthouse to stay at, within an hour's drive of many hiking routes. My room was clean and well appointed, and also spacious. The breakfast was excellent and you will generally be very well looked after here.

We stayed over for two nights. Great decision. The location gave us the freedom to explore the Central Drakensberg and provided us with a great retreat at the end of each day. We had one of the King rooms near the park with the Buck. Just a heads up here ..... one of the resident dogs tends to chase the buck, barking incessantly, so scrap any idea of an afternoon nap!!!

We stayed in for Dinner on day 1 .... excellent 3 course meal and good value for money. The honesty bar is reasonably priced and the hosts are very helpful with enquiries. I'd go back .... pretty easily actually.

Room Tip: No. 14 "Joy".
