We went as a group with BMW motorad, motorbike club for the annual Christmas weekend getaway. The Hotel was extremely accommodating. An area was designated in the undercover parking for the motorbikes. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Nothing was to much trouble. The food was outstanding - compliments to the chefs! The rooms had a wonderful view - just ensure you ask for a view as some rooms are set back, view still there but better to get "front row" rooms. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Plenty of activities at the Hotel. Clarens is about an hour away, so lovely for a lunch and drive through Golden Gate. Highly recommend Little Switzerland!!

A lovely resort in the 'berg with well appointed self catering chalets, a lovely restaurant, beautiful walks from easy to difficult levels. There is something for almost everybody including a kids climbing wall and play area, a driving range for golf enthusiasts, lawn bowls, mini golf etc. Depending on the weather, the walks are lovely and varied. Be sure to pack good walking shoes/boots. The chalets and grounds are beautifully maintained and very clean. The staff were all extremely pleasant and it appears well trained too. We were greeted by Nonto, an extremely, a friendly lady on front desk who has a wonderful sense of humour and terrific personality. Later we met Zamo when booking walks and obtaining keys to the bird hide. During our 2 days and 3 night stay, they couldn't do enough to be of assistance. We sincerely hope that management realise what great assets they have in these 2 members of staff. The chalets are well appointed, very clean and spacious. views from the verandas are lovely, looking over the berg and down the valley. Bird life is plentiful. Even with all the things to do, this is a very relaxing resort. The quietness from being away from town and main road makes this venue very relaxing indeed and I highly recommend a visit.

This resort is very well managed even though they are in the process of revamping. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The resort has amazing views of the Drakensberg Mountains. The staff are all very friendly, but especially the reception staff. Management (Gerhard and Marina) are hands on and make sure that every guest feels special. Our dietary needs were well taken care of. We don't eat Beef or Pork and every Dinner had a Chicken and Lamb option with plenty more options. We specifically requested Lamb on at least one of the Dinners and to our delight, we had a Lamb option for all the 3 Dinners during our stay. We stayed during the Heritage Day Long Weekend and even though the resort was booked to capacity, we did not have to queue for food or wait very long for anything. Management are on duty all the time and they get involved with assisting the staff immediately if they notice that staff are a bit busy, like clearing tables themselves and even making toast. Gerhard and him team have a real passion for hospitality and this will go a long way to their success.

We stayed in a self catering chalet. The view from the living room and the main bedroom was breathtaking. There are various hikes and walking trails starting from the resort. They vary from 20min to 5 hours. The Royal Natal National Park is about 30 min drive from the resort. We did an amazing day hike there. This was our second visit at Little Switzerland and definitely not the last one.
