A great place to stay when visiting sani pass and drakensberg. The lodge is the place with cozy atmospehere, very attentative service and delicious food. I felt like at home. The owners are there and care a lot about the place. Rooms are fine with nice views and comfortable beds. However it is the lounge/restaurant that makes the place special.

A really special place that was a privilege to stay at. Very comfortable rooms, quite location yet close to Underberg town to access all the attractions. Brent and Trudie are the consummate hosts and if you think you know what outstanding food tastes like then you are mistaken. Three truly wonderful dinners capped by the best oxtail I have every...

The place is awesome as are the owners and the staff. Very hospitable and friendly. Food was incredible although we didn't have the suppers we felt they were out of our money bracket. A few downsides; Only one pre-selected tv channel was given. Couldn't use the spa bath because of water restrictions however the lodge is on a borehole system?...

Very hospitable and comfortable, with excellent food and very good selection of wine. I was amazed that Trudie, who cooks the food, is vegetarian, as she prepared meat so well. The evening meals were excellent.

Let's start with the good points: If you are in the right room (we were in 6) you have an amazing view. Food is okay (not exceptionally) and the owner are friendly and helpful. BUT, ad other reviewers already mentioned it's very odd that you have to pay for stay the minute you arrive even if you did pay half...

We were at Amazian Mountain River Lodge for two nights. It's a great place to stay when you want to travel the Sani Pass and visit Lesotho. The little chalets were wonderful, spacious, well equipped and very clean. There's a great view covering both mountain and river. Both breakfast and dinner were very great, among the best we had in...

Brent and Trudie create a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, even though the place is quite fancy. It's actually a good place to stay, but the prices are quite high for South Africa: we stayed at Hartford House and Tenahad before and after, for less that The Amazian (including food). Our impression was that they cater more for overseas guests.

We went to Amazian for the first part of our honeymoon. The aim was to just relax in the mountains and we truly did. The highlight definitely was the food with the best part of our day being dinner time where Amazian really shines.

Beautiful building in a good setting, the hosts were attentive but... bedrooms were so overstuffed with furniture that it was hard to move in them. The bathroom is narrow, cramped with strange varnished stone edging. Worst feature was the 'prison camp' like time table for meals. Dinner at 7pm, breakfast at 8.30... the dining room door was locked until than!!...
