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.

The hotel/resort is in an ultimate location! Just a hop and skip to the sani pass, the setting is almost to good to be true. With the imminent upgrades being planned, which the resort is in desperate need of, this will swing the resort into the correct bracket of experience to attempt to match it's location.

Fantastic experience, great service, food and setting. Watching the sunset over the Drakensberg and then moving inside to sit around a beautiful log fire. The food was great and the service was friendly. Sani pass is a beautiful drive up to the snow capped mountains.

The hotel has the feel of a family-run hotel. Traveled with young children. The rooms have been redone and are comfortable. The lounge with huge fireplace is great in winter and the food is good. The highlight was the friendly staff who made an extra effort, especially with our special requirements for the kids. Was good value for money, enjoyed... More
