We have stayed here several times on visits to South Africa. This time we stayed in one of the timeshare chalets around the hotel. They are self catering, but we still ate in the hotel. The chalets are a little tired, and could use a facelift, but they are comfortable, spacious and you can use the hotel facilities. Convenient to...

This hotel is very close to the beautiful Drakensberg mountains. The terrace is wounderful to have your lunch with the amazing view of the Drakensber mountains. The room was nice but the towels and bed sheets had a slight brownish color. Don't know if it is due to the water. The breakfast and dinner was nice and tasty. The personal...

The resort is surrounded by the Drakensberg mountains. The exterior is well maintained. Fortunately we had a refurbished chalet. Interior was not very clean. Towels had holes and stains on them. Bed sheets seemed to be quite old with many stains that can not be removed. Lacking paying attention to detail.
