Reviewed 22 March 2017

I previously spent one night here with friends en-route from Lesotho in Jul 2010; now I came back in March 2017 with my family, primarily to treat our 3 year old Rapunzel-fan and it was absolutely worthwhile. Happy to say the castle and the dinner and breakfast remains as good as I remember, and still at a very reasonable price.
Situated between Clarens and Golden Gate, this is an ideal romantic sleep-over or base for a night or two to explore this area. A definite must for all families with little girls!

A second life, a second love, a second chance at happiness! What a lovely place to spend our first anniversary! At 50+ it's about time to rekinder forgotten fairytales! We loved every moment. The castle is a special place, planned and built by special people. Thank YOU for giving us the opportunity to enjoy YOUR version of the fairytale!!! It was stunning!!!

What a beautiful place to stay in we loved it. Every room is unique and beautiful and we would definately stay there again when we get the chance! The only thing we would change is on arrival - it was very dark and my wife was a bit scared - it wouldve been nicer to be booked in by the owners first.

My wife and I had a great getaway for her birthday. The Castle is a good place for couples or friends wanting to escape the city. The only downside to our stay was the quality of the beds which was not great. Would also recommend using a SUV or vehicle with good ground clearance as the road to the Castle will require a very slow drive in a car.

A wonderful experience, the beds are just terrible, but we will go again, same beds or not :-)
The setting is amazing, the views breath-taking. No small sticks to get the fire going, will cost a lot of firelighters every time. Nobody would use charcoal to braai, briquettes are the thing to provide, or tell the people to bring, but better not to give charcoal.
