When booking in the Drakensberg we always book at Seaforth, but 2 years ago, we went when they were new owners, and must admit the Lodge experience was horrific. We decided to try it again as the rates are extremely great. We has such an amazing time, we were able to take our furry family with us, and we went as a group of friends and family traveling from Durban and Joburg and booked the whole lodge out. We had such a great experience, so relaxing, away from city life…. There is nothing better than opening your door in the morning and only seeing mountain. The kids loved it because they brought their balls and bikes and enjoyed the open fields. We are so happy the old owners are back because the rooms are in great condition again…. The food is up to great standard (compliments of Victoria). We told the owners and staff that we would be back every year as we use to... To unwind and get away from the hussel and bussel.

This was out second visit to Seaforth and I must say that it will likely be our last. We had high expectations since our previous stay was so enjoyable. On our first stay we were greeted as soon as we arrived by the manager, a very friendly and knowledgeable girl (Charley, I think her name was) and one of the staff helped to carry all our bags to our room - which was absolutely lovely with stunning views over the dam and up to the mountains. The room and lodge were immaculate and the attention to detail was exceptional. In the evenings, while we were having dinner, the staff would go and light the fireplace in our bedroom so it was warm and cozy when we turned in for the night. Dinner was amazing and the portions were fit for a king. After dinner, we sat around the bonfire outside and chatted with the manager and some of the staff members.... Everyone was so welcoming and friendly. We had forgotten to stop and buy snacks and drinks on our way through, but the manager volunteered to go for us so we could relax. Everything was perfect and this lodge had such a "magical" feel about it! We were so impressed by the everything that we decided to book there again on our next visit to the Drakensberg. Our second visit, however, was nothing like the first. When we arrived, there was no-one in sight. We looked around but couldn't find anyone so we waited awkwardly until eventually one of the staff happened to walk past and see us. There was no manager on site and the staff checked us into our room. The standard of cleanliness and hospitality that we had come to expect from our previous visit, was not upheld. The room and lodge was clean enough, but just not to the same degree. We caught a glimpse of a guy who we think might have been the owner or manager, but we never met him. The staff were very friendly and tried their best, but are not very fluent in English. Dinner was still lovely, but not as much as our first stay and the portions were not near as generous. Seaforth has unfortunately lost its charm. All in all, we left very disappointed. Bring back the old standards, Seaforth, and we will surely be back!
