My wife and I stayed here for a weekend and we both loved the setting. It is centrally located in probably the busiest part of the Drakensberg, within short driving distance from all the area's main attractions. For meals, we opted to eat at one of the nearby resorts, although the guest farm also offer a reasonably priced menu in...

Julianna was very accommodating. Was given the double storey unit with amazing views. We were fortunate to see snow on the mountains. What a view. All staff are very pleasant. Hats off to Richard, for efficient and quick service. It's a must to have good company as you do not have a TV to watch in your unit. My only...

The lodge is set in a stunning location. The accommodation was clean but a little worn and dated. Unfortunately the food was very poor on the one night we ate there and the breakfasts were of the same poor quality.

Upon arrival we were informed our unit was given out and another was allocated to us but with stairs. Explained to "Pam" that our boys are 3 and 8 years and stairs are risky as they...

Value for money for a stay in serine surroundings, situated in a area central to the many activities available in the area. Rooms are modern, and are serviced every day, staff are friendly, the resident Chef did not disappoint with his excellent meals, breakfasts were superb. Overall a great stay, thank you Admore, we will be back.

We felt misled by the online discription of the place the pictures used and the reality on the ground. Glasses at the bar was dirty and drinks were limited. We could not order a toasted sandwich or anything else on arrival at 4pm as the kitchen was preparing for dinner.

We stayed for 3 nights. You awake to horses grazing by your chalet and goats, sheep in the paddock in front of you. Lovely views to the Drakensberg. Nice grounds in front of the reception building with a children's play area and views to the mountains. The chalets are spacious and clean. We had 2 bedrooms upstairs one downstairs and...

We had a wonderful stay at the beautiful Ardmore Guest Farm and I can definatly recommend it. THe rooms are fantastic and big, the surrounding area is lovely a´nd it is recommended to take the evening mails at the Guset Farm as the food is good and resonably priced. All in all an brilliant relaxing time.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ardmore Guest Farm is situated in the heart of the scenic Champagne Valley in the central Drakensberg mountain range. Here you can enjoy stunning views of the three highest peaks in South Africa - Mafadi (highest peak at 3450m), Injisuti Dome (3410m) and the majestic Champagne Castle (3377m) which are all situated within the World Heritage site. We are surrounded by breathtaking views and fantastic opportunities for hiking and exploring the local area. We also have our won Ardmore Museum and art gallery, and the African Loom weaving centre for those who are interested in local crafts and artwork. We provide comfortable farm style accommodation, with dinner and breakfast included. We have a total of 18 units, situated either in a traditional thatch rondawel or in one of our beautiful mountain facing cottages or garden rooms. All rooms are en-suite with private fireplaces and free firewood. Wake up to a traditional farmhouse breakfast (full English) overlooking Ardmore's extensive gardens. Relax in our pub with a cold drink before joining us for a relaxed four course lantern lit dinner with complimentary wine served in our yellow wood dining room. ... more   less
