a lovely setting, friendly staff and wonderful accommodation and food. lots to do at the hotel and the surrounds. This is a wonderful get away for nature lovers, families, a romantic get away or friends. So wonderful to go for a few days or longer.

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!

Honestly fell inlove with this place, the scenery is beautiful and the grounds well kept. The hiking routes were wonderfully marked which made our day out very pleasant.

The bed is honestly the most comfortable I've ever slept in and the unit was well equipped with all the essentials. I was also happy to see that the hotel is committed to a responsible water usage program ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

My only real complaint would be the television in the living room that was a little fuzzy. Other than that, AMAZING place!
