We were a party of four adults who shared a two bedroomed, two bathroomed chalet overlooking both the lake and the mountains. What makes this resort different is that it is small and the chalets are well-spaced apart from each other. The chalets are adequately equipped, very clean, and affordable. We are already planning to go back. The location of... More

We stayed in a 2-bedroom villa (no. 10) at Wits End which was at the back of the resort, furthest from the main road. This was perfect, as we had full views of the berg and it was very peaceful. There was not much traffic during our stay but some noise can be heard from the areas closer to the... More

We have spent 2 very brief stays at WitsEnd ( one night each visit). We have found it very peaceful, and in a beautiful setting. The units are basic but adequate and clean. The bedding could do with being replaced, but it is adequate. There is a beautiful rockpool to swim in, with a nice braai area. Would love the... More

My wife and I had a most enjoyable lunch, Bev had chicken and mushroom quiche and I had caesar chicken salad, both most tasty. Reasonably priced and service was good.Worth another visit.Cappuccino was also good.

If you plan to visit the Drakensberg Mountains, this should be your accommodation. We were there for 5 days in total with a group of 27 people. The location is spectacular and the accommodation is great. Lots of great facilities like the lapa, the pool, the lake, the braai areas, simple outstanding!

It's a newly opened restaurant / coffee shop so they're still finding their feet with furnishings a bit sparse and decor needing sprucing up, both of which the owner assured us will happen over time. The meals we have seen and tried after several visits are great value. The owner really puts in effort to please people. An example was... More

We stayed over at Wits End for 4 days in the week of new year 2013. We had the 6 sleeper chalet with single bathroom. The accomodation is a solid 3 star. All requirements for a pleasent stay are catered for. Even borrowed a potjie pot from the owner for preparation of an evening supper. It is really a pleasent... More

We have just got back from Wits end - during a heat wave the ventilation and fans are totally inadequate, but I think we were just unlucky. Also in a six sleeper it is really frustrating to have exactly six of everything - take paper plates and plastic cups for drinks and eats during the day. The place is very... More

We celebrated my Mother in law's 85th birthday by meeting at Wits End and stayed in Chalet No 8 which sleeps 8 peoples. Very peaceful,very affordable and wheelchair friendly and despite the miserable weather, we had a wonderful time. The chalets are well spaced giving privacy especially good for us since we had a 2year old and 10 week old... More
