The semi detached chalet is well equipped and comfortable. The verandah looks out over the golf course and up to the berg and the rhino peak and overlooks the golf course. Eland roam freely on the golf course. The hiking in the berg is pleasantly strenuous and only the fittest should try the day climb up to the rhino horn,... More

The units are neat and equipped very well and have spectacular views of the mountain. The resort has a lot to offer in the way of entertainment and amenities. The same can unfortunately not be said about the food on offer at the hotel. Arriving late this afternoon, we opted to have dinner at the Drakensberg Garden Hotel. We were... More

We went away as a family and stayed at Fairways. Was so impressed with the facilities available, especially for children. It completely made our weekend.

A muddle up with our booking. We were told we had booked chalet 116 and when we arrived it was already occupied but the receptionist found us another chalet. 161 which was too far away for the wheel chair for my 90 year old mother. That was the whole purpose of our visit to give my Mum a treat. Luckily... More

Fairways may seem quite far from central South Africa, but it is a fabulous place to relax for a few days. It is close to the mountains and the golf course is interesting and quite tricky at parts. It also has trout fishing and is simply a very nice place to be at.

The units are clean and well maintained. Staff are friendly and efficient. There are plenty of activities on the property including a fairly daunting Zip Line. The MTB track is excellent. On site restaurants are good. There is a health spa but we did not use it
