We arrived early and did the paper work and decide to wait until 14h00 when we should have had entrance to our unit. After asking quite a few times when our unit would be available we were only allowed in 45 min later. While we waited we told the staff that they could at least have offered us coffee. This was also promised but we later just stood up and went to our unit. The unit was beautiful and views magnificent. Beds and bedding very good. Unit well equipped. We went on the lake boat cruise. They have horse riding guided walks table tennis and a good games room. Very sorry there is not a putt putt course. Also a beautiful heated swimming pool. We enjoyed our stay and would like to go back again and also to do a bit of birding. We also had a breakfast one morning which was super. Richard who is in charge here runs a tight ship everything works 100%.

Stayed: November 2017

Room Tip: ground floor gives you access directly to the garden.

This beautiful hotel is a real gem. Tucked at the foot of a mountain with beautiful views all round and lots of fun activities for the whole family. Food was okay but the restaurant staff needed a bit of a shove every now and then

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay - our room was an ‘executive premium’ on the ground floor - it was spacious and comfortable. It was kept meticulously clean - although the corridor was slightly ‘musty’ and littered with room service trays which should have been cleared more promptly. However - the Resort staff more than made up for this minor shortcoming - in particular the very cheerful bell-hops manoeuvring the suitcase trolley up/down multiple flights of stairs (no lifts here).

The stand-out for us was the buffet (which we are generally not keen) but in the Drakensberg Sun the buffet was well managed and had sufficient chef-stations for prompt service of freshly cooked food - in particular for the evening dinner buffet was a’la carte standard. At our last breakfast the restaurant was fairly ‘jammed’ with conference attedees but the service and food was still excellent.

The grounds were extensive and well kept - except the pool area was a little ‘tired’. Overall a good base for a few days in The Drakensberg.

Room Tip: Ground floor opens directly to patio and grounds

Awesome grounds & facilities, lovely activities - we would love to have stayed longer but it was jam packed full of fun. The pool was lovely - Mandla was our poolside waiter - he was excellent and Robert Pringle the resort Front Office Manager is someone whois most helpful, hands on and an excellent representative of your resort!
