Satisfied beyond imagination. The whole Montusi team works very hard to meet the expectations of the guest. I would recommend this place to anyone without even thinking twice about it. Had a great experience

A long overdue return to the Drakensberg was made all the better by a holiday at Montusi that exceeded all our expectations. Great food, friendly service, scenic MTB and hiking routes around the hotel (especially Montusi Gorge) and lazing at the pool or relaxing fly fishing. We look forward to our next visit for more of the same plus the other hiking routes and maybe a horse ride.

Dear Chris, What a pleasure to reintroduce you to the Berg! One bright side to the pandemic is that our countryfolk have been adventuring within South Africa and what a treat it has been to show everyone these mountains:) Thank you for loving your time with us. Our horses and hiking trails eagerly await your return! Have a great week, Lindsay

Beautiful place with fantastic view on the amphitheater. Well trained and pleasant staff. Very good accommodation in private and quiet area. Excellent food and choice of drinks, wine etc. Nice walks in the area from a couple of km. to a full day's trail. For the 4x4 people there is a track around the area which is easy and another one that takes you eventually to LittleSwitserland and Oliviershoek Pass.

We had an amazing time at your lodge. We had very little to no complaints, the only thing that you could improve on is more kiddie friends food, such as crumbed chicken, fish or pastas. The MTB trails were incredible and your stuff were very friendly and accommodating.

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
