This is a real gem of an hotel. Its location in the northern Drakensberg Mountains is to die for. You wake up and upon opening your curtains you have a full view of the magnificent Ampitheatre. Every one of the delightful cottages experiences this same fantastic vista.
The cottages themselves are luxurious with a patio, fireplace, sitting room, huge bathroom and small kitchen area complete with fridge, sink and kettle. The furnishings are all superbly kept and the cleanliness is exceptional.
The hotel is made up of the cottages, large public areas, swimming pool, bar and restaurant. The food was a set menu and the food was delicious. The staff impressed me with their enthusiasm and friendliness.
The pool was very cold owing to the altitude of the hotel but surrounded by sun loungers and just down the road was an activity centre offering horse-riding, quad bikes etc.
The activity we most enjoyed was walking. The paths are all well sign posted and the hotel offers maps indicating the level of difficultness. A guide is also on hand if you prefer.
You should not stay here if you want discos, shopping or entertainment. Instead Montusi offers peace, scenery, good food, friendly people and great walking.
One of the best places I have stayed at.
