The place itself is beautiful, the log cabin was very comfortable and clean, and the staff are super friendly. The main issue for me is the gravel road leading up to the hotel which is really long and not pleasant to drive on but the view is gorgeous and worth it

Set at the base of the mountain a beautiful scenic view. I booked a studio self catering room, it was short of nothing. From pots to pans, cutlery and even an espresso machine and hairdryer- very comfortable and cozy. A fireplace in the room and a braai station outside . Housekeeping kept the room tidy. The only thing was I felt the blanket a bit dusty but housekeeping immediately cleaned that up. The downside, it loadshed every day but there was back up generator except for the one night it stayed off and I couldn't even see my own fingers. The restaurant meal was tasty, really enjoyed it. There's is a game room and outside activities for kids. A rock heated pool and going in the dead of winter and with loadshedding guests didn't swim. The spa was an added advantage with guest vouchers. It will make a lovely holiday for kids. Horse riding is 5minutes away with an hours trail to the border post and waterfall. Great place for a picnic. Paintball is also at the same venue. Besides hiking ,horse riding and taking in the mountain views it's a nice place to relax. The staff are very friendly and they keep you updated on events or even remind you to order your meals. Interaction is great even with other guests. I had a splendid break.

We had a lovely time at Bushmans Nek, so much to do and so many attractions nearby like Pig and Pony and the lovely waterfall at Bushmans Nek World Heritage site. The rooms were lovely and comfortable but unfortunately, the heating wasn't up to mark in our room, would have been nicer and cozier with a fireplace. The meals were of great value and tasted nice. On the last day of our stay, we did see some light snow on part of the mountains a drive. All in all, a beautiful place to spend a holiday.

My wife treated me to a wonderful weekend away at Bushman's Neck Hotel for my 65th birthday. The views of the Drakensberg from the hotel are amazing. Our room had everything we needed and was cleaned on a daily basis. We did most of our own catering but made use of the Restaurant on the Saturday evening and the meal was top class, especially the oxtail. There are many things to do at Bushman's Neck but the best are the walks and just lazing next to the pool with a gin and tonic. It was our second visit and on the first visit we struggled with the roads but these are now much improved. One of our favourite places to visit!

We stayed in the honeymoon suite this past weekend and our stay was nothing less than amazing and unforgettable. It was quite chilly in the evening so we got quite attached to a fluffy blanket provided by the hotel, however one evening as we were preparing for bed, we couldn't find the fluffy blanket, high and low we searched but defeated we gave up on the case of the missing fluffy blanket, we then made our way to bed, peeled the duvet back only to find that housekeeping had incorporated the fluffy blanket while making the bed, this shows that they care about their guests so much that they went above and beyond to make us as comfortable as possible. That level of attention to detail shows how the staff take their jobs seriously, I really would like to visit again. I miss the tranquility and calm atmosphere. The couples massage was a wonderful treat, the horse ride was a fun way to experience the beautiful scenery. We had dinner there on our first night, I had the trout which was cooked to perfection, the chef captured not only the dish's natural beauty but flavours and fragrances that made my mouth water with delight. Definitely do yourselves a favour and go visit the Bushmans nek hotel, it's a heavenly oasis that will have you coming back again.

We booked a 3 bed unit in the resort. The location is remote and the roads getting there are not for the feint hearted. If you hire a car, make sure you have wheel and windscreen add-ons. The roads are all badly pot holed and require you to pay attention at all times. 4x4 are a must. we arrived at the hotel to friendly staff and were given our 3 bed 6 sleeper timeously. The room was tidy but carpets burnt, shabby and dirty. The fireplace obviously spilt hot coals in the past. The lounge area has a mismatch of furniture in various states of disrepair. The kitchen area was tidy but in need of a refurb as was the outside barbeque area. The bathrooms are likewise in need of a revamp and leaked everywhere.. very little value for money The facilities and restaurant are good and the scenery spectacular. Will not return until the place is fixed up

Hi Dave. You will be pleased to hear that the roads have been graded this week after the extreme rains we have experienced since December. Carpets are being replaced throughout the resort within the next month and bathroom refurb started last year and should be completed by the end of May. Hope to see you then to show you our upgrades. Kind regards, Leon, General Manager.

What a gem! This is our absolute favourite place to stay! We stayed in the hotel part of the resort. The room is lovely, cozy and clean. They've also recently beautifully renovated the bathrooms. The service at Bushmen's Nek is excellent, everyone is so welcoming and accommodating. The food at the restaurant is delicious and reasonably priced 😊 the facilities are great with lots of activities - definitely something for everyone. Our favourite was lounging by the infinity pool taking in the beautiful berg mountains😊 We're so grateful to the Bushmen's Nek team for making our stay so special every time. P.s we go twice a year and will definitely be back😅 thank you Bushmen's Nek team😊

We (15 of us) absolutely LOVED staying at this resort very recently. It exceeded our expectations in terms of everything. The location of this resort is nothing less but spectacular and its pristine amenities is what you would expect from a 5 star hotel. The chalets are spacious and very comfortable. Food and drink at he restaurant is good and very reasonably priced. The overall service at this resort was attentive and excellent. We will definitely return.

I would like to inform you of our complete disappointment with the level of service and communication offered at bushmansnek. We were four adults and one small child who stayed as guests for three nights. Upon arrival there was no water, we reported this several times and maintenance only tried to fix this the first evening. We had no water for three days. What is worse is that no one communicated with us, returned calls, or made alternate provisions for water supply. It is totally unacceptable. The service at the bar and restaurant was terribly slow and menu very limited. The rooms were freezing cold with no working heaters. The tv wall unit dismantled and almost fell The tv in main room was not working Tea, coffee, towels and soaps were not replenished daily.

Hi SweetPiment0. Thank you for your patience over the weekend while my team and I were frantically trying to restore the water problems you experienced during your stay with us. It is understandable that the lack of water/hot water would have negatively affected your experience of Bushmans Nek and for this inconvenience, we would like to apologise. Thank for your comments, they have been used to make Bushmans Nek a better property, ready for your next visit. Kind regards, Leon Rennison, General Manager.
