Overall we had a great stay.

We stayed in unit 22

2 thing that could be improved

1) There is a very bright outside light right next to the door that does not have a switch as it goes on automatically when it becomes dark outside. The door has frosted glass, and there was no door between the living room and the bed room. So the bedroom was not completely dark at night. It was a bit bothersome as I am sensitive to light, so I had to throw a blanker over the door to be able to sleep .

2) The french press is very small if you want to make coffee for 2 people

Those were really the only 2 drawbacks. Apart from this, our stay was splendid!

Thanks so much for your review! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your time with us. We will look at fixing the lighting situation in the Mountain Suites. We are phasing out the small coffee plungers and are replacing them with larger ones:) We hope to welcome you back again to see the improvements for your anniversary! All the best, Lindsay

All round excellence. The accommodation was really good and very comfortable with fabulous views of the mountains. The room was well appointed and clean. The meals were superb and my wife's request for gluten free meals was dealt with amazingly, the chef is an absolute gem.

We enjoyed 3 nights at Montusi.
The chalets are well furnished, provide all home comforts and have a stunning view of the famous amphitheatre mountain range.
The lodge is family run and the service and attention to detail was excellent.
We enjoyed a couple of strenuous hikes whilst there . The Tiger falls route in the national park, where we were lucky enough to see the falls in full flow due to the torrential downpour that had occurred overnight and the hike up Montusi mountain behind the lodge which afforded a magnificent 360 degree panorama after an energetic climb!
The menu for dinner each evening was small with just a choice of main and desert but the food was delicious, locally sourced and well presented.
Staff are local , very friendly and wanting to make your stay enjoyable.
If you are looking to spend time in the Drakkensburg mountains we would recommend a stay at Montusi.

We spent 3 nights at Montusi - we had one of the garden suites with the most stunning views of the amphitheatre. The food and service were outstanding and the hosts were very knowledgeable in helping us plan hikes both locally and to the top of tugela falls. Would highly recommend Montusi to people looking to explore the drakensburg but also for relaxing in fabulous surroundings. And for stargazing on a clear night!

Thanks very much for enjoying your time with us! It is the best for us when people adventure into the mountains and love the magic Montusi offers - well done of getting to the top of the Tugela Falls! Our clear skies (day and night) and the peaceful atmosphere are 2 of the things we find it difficult to explain to people before they get here, even though these two things are among the most the striking. We hope to welcom eyou back again one day. In the meantime, we will do our best to keep Montusi and our mountains fabulous. Kind regards, Lindsay
