It wasn't a 1st time we stayed he. Always loved it, environment, hosting, food especially. Last time i was here about 3 or 4 years ago. I do understand that things are charged but should change for better and not for worse. Unpleasantly discovered that the owner was changed and so was the rest. Luckily the rooms and view stayed....

Sani Pass is a beautiful place. It is well worth a visit, and the winter time is right for hiking and running. We came fully prepared for this one based on the brochure we received. We packed for tennis, fishing, hiking, and lounging. The hotel itself is interesting; although, not spectacular. Rooms are spacious enough, with good views if you're... More

We had a lovely few days here in mid winter- snow on the Berg and sunshine all day. The hotel service is just great- all the staff were most attentive and helpful. We stayed here 25 years ago and it is still as enjoyable as ever. Breakfast is a great buffet selection and the dinner buffet is also great- you... More

The hotel building is a little dated, but certainly very nice with big windowed sitting areas with fireplaces for when it is cold and a very nice outside sitting area when it's warm. The restaurant is fine, the food isn't bad, and the waiters are fairly attentive. The rooms are nice and spacious with great views. All that sounds like... More

Room was spacious and recently upgraded, bed hard and uncomfortable. No safe for valubles, hairdryer didn't work. Room 19 on first upper level had nice view, but the noise from next door rooms was very noticable. Reception Staff friendly and helpful, 1 waiter on duty in the lounge on a Saturday afternoon, bar was closed for private function. Dinner was... More

The hotel is magnificent. It appears to have been recently refurbished. We stayed in a hotel room. The rooms are large, neat and comfortable. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The lounges are magnificent and we really enjoyed sitting by the fire place in the evening. Dinner and breakfast were excellent. Our children had a fabulous time. The children's... More

We often come to Sani just for the sheet tranquility of the venue. As you are almost guaranteed to have the dining room pretty much to yourself - it's easy to relax and wind down. The rooms are huge and have been upgraded very nicely. Some rooms have lovely views up to the Berg. The lounges, especially on a chilly... More

Room 7 where we stayed was spacious and had a comfortable double bed and en suite bathroom with shower and bath. Rooms are kept clean and neat. It is perfect for breaking away from daily hustle and bustle, very quiet at night. Wi-Fi is only available in the foyer but should not be a problem as this is an excellent... More

This hotel is staffed by friendly caring people. From the serving staff to management, friendly greetings and a real concern as to how we were enjoying our stay. Located at the foot of the majestic Sani Pass through the Drakensberg it is ideally located for the adventurous, also offering a full variety of facilities for the less active. The hotel... More

Garden cottage was all that was needed! The views were stunning and after a cold night and light rain we had a crystal clear view on the mountains. The trip down to the waterfall was also well worth the effort. Finally the Chef's efforts from the kitchen were superb.
