What a beautiful location with such friendly service. I only wish I could have stayed longer. This was the perfect place to stay after some tough hikes in the area. The food was delicious and the rooms very comfortable and clean.

Thank you so much for your review. It was an absolute joy to have you with us, even though it was so short. I'm so glad you had a great stop-over and I trust the rest of your hiking adventures were awesome. We hope to see you again one day. Kind regards, Lindsay

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.
