Lovely peaceful setting; old colonial style farmhouse with lounge / library / cellar. 5 course dinner excellent as was the breakfast. The only regret is that we had booked for one night only - this place deserves 2 nights.

We spent a Saturday night here last October. We were met in the car park and shown to our fantastic room. The dinner "ritual" was explained and we then went for afternoon tea. The dinner was excellent, I loved the fact that our meal was served at our pace. The next morning we went for a walk on the property,...

This was chosen to celebrate 50th birthdays of four girlfriends! We had a fantastic stay. The accommodation and setting is just beautiful. We enjoyed champagne on the dam with the Kamberg mountain in the background. After visiting the wine cellar to chose our wine we were given the explanation of why he menu. The meal was wonderful. Great walks. Highly...

Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse is simply outstanding. A few examples to back up that statement. From the moment we arrived to the minute we left the service was impeccable. Without exception the staff are friendly without being over familiar, attentive without being smothering, chatty at appropriate times but not intrusive. Absolutely first class. My husband reported that the sommelier invited him...

This is our third visit to the stunning restaurant tugged away in the Kamberg. The drive there alone is worth it with the natural beauty. The service is fantastic and every one is so full of passion for what they do and want to offer you. Now the food is on a different level. No where in France in the...

This hotel is very good managed, the rooms are nice and spacious, Richard the owner/cook is very good, the meals are rich but very tasteful and surprising. The combinations are surprising and very good. They have even a book what you can buy, with a lot of the recipes.

My wife and I spent a fantastic weekend at Cleopatras. The food and service was outstanding. Nothing was too much effort for the staff. Located at the end of the Kamberg Valley on the road to Highmore there are many excellent walks nearby which are not overly strenuous for those looking for a relaxing weekend. We will definitely be back.

Perfect place for romantic or small group celebration Location is superb; 6500ft up in the Drakensberg. Lots of wonderful hikes including nearby Highmoor. The food is overwhelmingly good, hard going for a calorie counter like me but worth the splurge. And you can walk it off. The staff are perfect. Attentive yet discreet

Cleopatras again delivered for us. The food was wonderful and the staff amazing. This time we hiked Hymore Nature Reserve for the day after our huge breakfast. This rather than heading for the Midlands Meander experience. A great alternative and much more exercise orientated day after all the extraordinary food. Can't wait to return.
