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

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
