“Perfect getaway!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

We were a group of friends staying at the Resort for a week. It was perfect. The service was beyond excellent. The rooms are very spacious, clean and lovely! I would recommend this Resort to each and everyone! The food is excellent and delicious.

Stayed here for a 3 nights whilst attending a conference. The facilities, rooms, food and all logistics are fantastically organised by the hotel. It would have been great if the family had been here too.

My family of two children my wife and I took up a very good offer to stay in this hotel over the heritage September weekend and thougougly enjoyed it. We arrived early and the weather was a little cold and rainy . An early check in was not possible but we were ushered through to a fire place and given a tray of tea and biscuits to make up feel at home. This set the scene for a weekend in which we were oiled by the staff and welcomed by the management .

The are lots of activities for the kiddies and great hiking opportunities. The rooms are very clean and more than adequate with very comfortable beds . The 18 hole golf course is a first class resort style course that is beautiful and varied.

This is not a five star facility and I do not think it tries to be. It is a great country getaway especially for families. There are time share facilities and self catered lodges if prefers this . The view from the hotel is outstanding.

Food is buffet style with enough choice to keep you interested and withnthe addition of fresh fish every day that is grilled on request .

There a many activities ex the hotel such as the game reserves and the zip lines through the natural forest if you bead to get out ...

The hotel itself needs some maintenance but only in certain limited areas

Thanks we will be back!

Room Tip: Ask for a berg view room away from the hotel

Lovely rooms with magnificent views of the Drakensberg & very professional accommodating staff, especially for a rural area. Lovely roaring fireplaces with a quaint country feel. The buffet had fresh fish, which was a treat, but could have had more fresh fruit at breakfast. Great golf course with killer views. Lovely gentle walks on site & strenuous walks nearby. Zip line experience above the tree canopy, 10 minutes drive away.

This is lovely resort and all the staff we had dealings with where great. Lovely peaceful setting and lovely to sit around the main pool area having a sundowner. We had an 8 sleeper unit and what was great was that each of the bedrooms had there own bathroom. Only problem is that only 6 people have bedrooms the other 2 use sleeper couches.
Units do need a little "sprucing up" which we did notice in the reception area that a plan to do this is underway.

We stayed in Timeshare and did not eat at any of the restaurants.

Just spend a week at Champagne Sports by doing a space bank. Excellent resort. Evening Buffet very good. There are lots of places to visit close by which include Falcon Ridge Bird of Prey Centre, hear the Drakensberg boys Choir sing, have a great breakfast or lunch at Valley Bakery.Great view of the Drakensberg mountains from our chalet.

Large resort situated on and around a beautiful golf course in one of the best inland settings you are likely to find. The magnificent Drakensberg needs little introduction and the views from the large chalets and hotel rooms is very special.

This resort really does just about have it all and caters for most tastes. Stayed in a 2 bedroomed chalet which was spacious and maintained in decent condition. Units are serviced daily and have everything one needs to cater for yourself. The nearby shop stocks everything one needs.
We also dined in the restaurants and enjoyed the treats at the coffee shop. Families enjoyed the many daily activities laid on by the resort who provide an extensive programme of events. Very nice pool area with 2 large pools are well served by attentive bar waiters - excellent cocktails. Do as much or as little as you like.

The local area offers a large variety of things to do and places to visit & see from hot air ballooning to craft centres and many more. Our visit to listen to the Drakensberg Boys Choir perform their first concert of the year was very special and well worth it.

A short trip away is the lovely Champagne Castle Hotel where we indulged in an excellent afternoon tea. The dining looks good too.

Champagne Sports Resort - fantastic holiday destination - highly recommended
