We visited the hotel, specifically as a base for a trip up and down the pass. While it is evident that there is a renovation programme underway, the hotel rooms we stayed in was nicely updated, the hotel remains one of those old midland / berg facilities.... The dining was of a high standard, although I felt a bit pricey,... More

Spent one night only after the Sani Pass experience. Our room was spacious, the bathroom renovated and all one would need, but by no means luxury. Friendly staff added to a pleasant stay, but best was the location and the views of the mountain.

After a trip up the pass we stopped off for what we hoped would be a nice Sunday lunch. Keeping it simple we ordered a Rib-eye and some type of lamb wrap. Unfortunately no carvery offering. The waitress was very nice, well spoken and welcoming, however the food took exactly an hour from order to arrive and the ribeye was... More

We stayed at Sani Pass for 3 nights in October as we always wanted to see and experience the Natal Midlands. The hotel itself is quite old with lots of old world charm and being newly renovated gives a bit of a more modern feel once you set foot inside. The rooms are very comfortable - lovely and spacious, beautiful... More

This is one of the few remaining true family resorts in the Berg. It is old but the refurbished bathrooms and very spacious bedrooms in the hotel are lovely with beautiful views. We were there for a weekend with my niece and her husband and two small children and we all enjoyed the stay. Lovely grounds, great playground, very good... More

Stayed over for a long weekend, booked in the cottages. Old hotel with a great room revamp. Bathrooms look good. After a delicious 3 course meal got back to our room and had no hot water. BEFORE we could complain, we were asked my management to move into a room in the main hotel building. Thank you! Cozy log fire... More

We stayed at the Sani Pass Hotel as a family from 12 to 13 April 2014. During that time members of my family rode horses and quadbikes. The horses were too thin and needed proper professional care. The quadbikes have never been serviced and were constantly breaking down. The bike I rode could not even get up the hills without... More

Our stay was so relaxing and a wonderful experience for the kids in our group (a special thanks to Happy who entertained them)... The bungalows were slightly dated but very clean and comfortable. Splendid view and overally a very relaxing stay.
