Travellers' Choice
The Drakenberg Mountain Retreat is a stunning destination in the northern Drakensberg with breathtaking views. Accommodation at the Lodge is fully catered for breakfast and Dinner. Lunch can be ordered and can be enjoyed on the patio or a picnic basket for your walk in the mountains. The rooms range in quality and size so chat to the management if you want something specific. There are 2 luxurious rooms for romantic couples wanting a totally private retreat. Our pet friendly rooms have enclosed gardens and our large family rooms are wonderful for relaxing with the kids. There are no fixed entertainment activities for the kids. There are marked hiking trails for the fit and not so fit. Enjoy the streams, rivers and just be captured by the quiet of nature. Bring some board games for kids and some of their books from home. Useful on rainy days. The Lodge is set high on a ridge overlooking the northern Drakensberg, the Maluti mountains and most of the central Drakensberg. A wonderful base from which to experience what this part of the Drakensberg has in store for you. The BARNHOUSE is our Self Catering option on the same premises. It offers accommodation for groups and conferences. Enjoy the "homely" atmosphere and caring hosts.

we had a wonderful stay at the Drakensberg Mountain Retreat. The setting is perfect with wonderful views and great hiking in the area, although some of the paths need better signage and a bit of maintenance. The hotel itself is fantastic, full of character and very comfortable. The staff were so helpful and thoughtful. We highly recommend staying here and hope to come back soon.

We definitely got value for our money. the food was very delicious, staff were very professional and kind. The place had spectacular views of the Drakensburg mountains, the environment is serene and peaceful. I would however recommend that they install airconditioners as the rooms can get very hot.
