Lovely resort with lots to do in and around the area. Food was great, comfortable beds and soft, crisp duvets were a treat. Fiendly and helpful staff who made us feel welcome throughout our short stay.

We are staying here for the second time and we love the place. We love it because of its tranquility, the views and the hiking trails. I think every room here has a view of the beautiful Drakensburg mountains. What we love the most are the hiking trails - the best! This time they have also made an effort to make them safer and more manageable for the elderly. We loved them even before then. We went on a hiking trail everyday of our stay here and we stayed for a week. The hotel itself is well kept, cozy and very welcoming. I love the fire places especially at this time of the year when it is a bit nippy. The rooms are big and very comfortable. In general this resort is a reliable place to book into because one will not be disappointed. The only thing I would improve is the cooking/food - it becomes a little boring after three days and since there is no other restaurant one has to keep going back to the same. I love the Friday buffet the most because sushi was included.

We were on our honeymoon and the resort was surely the best decision we made.
The location is perfect, it is not too far away from other points of intrests. The view we had of our surroundings was breathtaking...
The atmosphere of the resort was welcoming, warm and cozy.
The rooms are spacious and well kept with a very fresh, clean and classic style to it. - We loved our room...
The sevice we recieved was wonderful - everyone was friendly, caring and helpful. Our requests were handled quickly and effectivly.
The different activities in and arround the resort makes it exciting and special. Gives us a reason to return, because you can't do everything on one holiday.

We had an amazing few days and we enjoyed every moment of it.

This hotel is a great and reliable place that makes for a perfect family outing. A good variety of food is available at the buffet breakfast and dinner, but lunch menu and options around the pool and on the hotel verandah are limited and rather average. Several hiking trials cater for the entire family and different levels of fitness. Unfortunately we waited long for check-in after the published check-in time. Overall a good outing with consistent service.

Room Tip: Don't opt for the renting of rods for fly fishing on the lake - no luck whatsoever :) Clos...

Views fantastic from the dining area. Room comfortable and clean. Beds are fantastic. Love the 15 minute massages offered at the pool! Well worth the effort. Dinner was a buffet....go for the lamb curry....the wine list needs some attention but adequate. Missed out on the boat cruise as it was over subscribed (should therefore be good). Love the fire place. Check in was an absolute breeze due to Simphiwe Mze

Room Tip: Rooms 100 on ground level....but then a flight of stairs to deal with. Will go for anything from roo...
