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.

We enjoyed our stay as advised by the Drakesberg Boys Choir of the special for the weekend. It is also close to the school. A small suggestion to consider upgrading the Resort Hotel to be more modern. Small suggestion to have lights in the Gardens or at least light up the area when patrons visit or check in after 6...

the rooms are clean only problem was the out of reach Wi-Fi in the rooms as I was on Business trip it was going to be helpful for me to access my work emails. For people on pleasure this place is ideal for them and I think I will come back for private visit

We had a lovely time. The wonderful family atmosphere made it a very enjoyable time. The kids had so much fun at the river, on the bowling green and tennis courts. The bunnies and ponies were also great to watch. We will definitely return for our annual holiday at The Nest. Thank you.

Pleasant get away. Overall experience was good. Nice view from verandah. Accessible to a variety of entertainment including Birds of Prey, Valley Bakery, Drakensberg Boys Choir. No kiddies menu which I feel could be improvement.

Lovely resort, delicious food, kids had a blast. Very family feel to the hotel. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. It was a busy long weekend and everything ran smoothly. Plenty variety at dinner - we ate far too much! Kids had a great time on their bicycles exploring. We had a superior room with a lovely view....

A comfortable country hotel, quite a 'blast from the past'. You receive a warm welcome, good service, a tasty variety of food and friendly, helpful staff. Added to this, an excellent view of the Berg. A real value for money get away.
