    Exceptional food, excellent service and unbeatable value. Safe property for young children. This is The Nest Hotel. Beautiful Views of central Drakensberg. We felt so at home we didn't want to leave and we can't wait to go back!

    Excellent nice getaway. Well worth visiting again, friendly staff and food was good value. The Executive suite was very nice. Peaceful and tranquil setting. As we were there for our anniversary, the extra small touches in the room made it even more special.

    They’re actually quite relaxed about the dress code. Long trousers for men, but I saw many wearing jeans.
