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

I was very surprised at how well kept the hotel was, beautiful, clean and so warm and cosy. Absolutely loved our stay so much to do and the short walk to the waterfall is a must, Food was divine but just need a bigger menu for dinner. All the staff and managers very hands on and friendly, Only downside was... More

We visited Sani Pass hotel recently for my mothers's 80th birthday who had expressed a desire to go up to the top of Sani Pass. To do so we booked into the hotel for a week end recently. From our arrival to departure, the staff were most courteous, helpful and efficient. Food was very good and the rooms were above... More

The Premier Hotel Group has acquired this property, and I went to have a look, before they do further renovations. My expectation was that it would be a run down old 3 star resort, poorly managed and needing a huge makeover! But I was pleasantly surprised by the 3 star charm of the property, and it is really well run!... More

Recently, my daughter and I went on an excursion and spontaneously ended up at Sani Pass Hotel for coffee. Due to the friendliness of their staff we decided to have the "hot breakfast". It was outstanding! We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful spread of the buffet, which was beyond our expectation and very reasonably priced! What a brilliant selection of food.... More

Nothing compares with the views from the Sani Pass Hotel. Either from the hotel rooms or the Terrace or Sun Lounge. The fresh air and relaxing atmosphere is the best. The Staff are also super friendly and helpful and its the best place for a relaxing getaway. The hotel also constantly changes and upgrades and every time I visit something... More

We, four bikers, chose to stay here to do the Sani Pass because of the hotel's proximity to the pass and what a good choice it was. For me it truly felt I had taken a welcome step back to gentler, unrushed times - no glitz, no glam just tranquility in a beautifully natural mountain setting. Huge log fires, comforting... More

We had a lovely trip to the Sani Pass hotel at beginning of April 2015, just before Easter. Family of four with two boys - 8 and 5. We changed chalets from a 3 bed to a refurbished 2 bed after 1 night. Given the option, I would definitely do that again. The refurbished chalet was much better. We stayed... More

Context: We are 8 "Silver surfers" who wanted to go over the Sani Pass into Lesotho I was astounded at the friendliness and efficiency of the Staff. The rooms are huge with breath-taking views. They were immaculately clean and well appointed The food was good and as someone who is a Coeliac (allergic to Gluten) I was amazed the chef... More

I spent a wonderful 3 night mid-week stay while the hotel was undergoing refurbishment. The staff went out of their way to accommodate me in the garden cottage I had requested when I booked although this section was not yet open. The DBB rate, even with single surcharge was very reasonable compared to other hotels in the berg. My newly... More
