My wife & I enjoyed this second visit as much as our first & we now will visit here every time we holiday in SA.To see dawn over the mountains from our bed is something we shall never forget. The birds & their colours are a bonus. The thatched cottages are charming & well spaced.The food always with a good choice is first class, wines well priced & a good selection. The pool area just what is required to wash away memories of a British Winter & there is a daily opportunity to have some sightseeing exercise.

This is an excellent place! Fantastic location, with lots of things to do from the doorstep, including some varied and interesting walks. Amazing views, excellent food and wine (including a daily changing vegetarian menu-wow!), and very comfortable and well appointed rooms and facilities. The whole place has a serene and very relaxing feel to it. The owners and staff were all very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. If you're thinking of a top notch place , then think no further!

We choose Montusi as we were looking for a nice hideaway to relax and distress, and \montusi is the perfect place, even the weather did not dampen our visit. The welcome and service from all the staff made the visit even better and we were very sad to depart at the end of our week, but very relaxed. Will be back for sure. Will definitely recommend to anyone, including families seeking a nice and friendly enviroment, with plenty to do.

We arrived at Montusi for a Valentines Lunch and was treated to not only excellent fare but a view to die for from our garden table. All the activities that we took part in were as read, no disappointment's at all. Accommodation was excellent, every cottage has a really good outlook, as has the Dining room and Bar. We prebooked a concert with the Drakensberg Boys Choir which is a must if you can make the third Wednesday of the month, 40 minute drive through nice scenery. We will be back to experience the other season where everything is dry and golden but cooler.

We stayed here 3 nights and enjoyed every sec of it. Great and beautifull spacious private lodges, with a nice mainbuilding overlooking the swimming pool. In it a pleasant bar, nice shop and well kept restaurant with a cook who was pro-active in approaching me enquiring after my dieet-requests which I had mailed earlier and she prepare great meals served out by charming waitresses. The area and scenery if fantastic, we had great walks nearby and 2nd day went to Natal National Park for a long but not difficult walk to the Amphitheater ....great>greater>greatest. In short : a beautifull palce to be.
