Stayed over at Oaklands Counrty manor on the way back to Durban. This venue boasts of home style hospitality and charm, We met with two of the four siblings that own and manage the place. They make one very welcome and comfortable. Since the hotel was partially occupied Simone gave us a beautiful newer room overlooking the polo fields ,... More

Stopped off on the way from Durban to Johannesburg. This delightful manor hotel is exactly half way, but beware of the 7km dirt track that leads you off the N3; drive at 30kms as people have shredded tyres there! But this place is much more than a stop off and if you are into country pursuits such as walking in... More

We visited Oaklands country manor because it is not too far from us for a weekend getaway and because we read so much about the food in local magazines. The food definitely did not disappoint!! Breakfast (included in the room price) is a lavish affair with a pork roast available at the buffet that is a must try. We never... More

This is a beautiful place to stay for a peaceful break. The rooms are really comfortable, stylish and welcoming. Waking in the morning and looking out over the valley at the horses being moved across the paddocks was wonderful. We did not ride on this occasion but if we returned we would like to. The staff and owners were very... More

Decided to leave the city for a bit and with the short 3 hour drive from both JHB and DBN its the best place to escape to. Excellent food just makes this whole experience worth the while, Cathy is ridiculously talented and you can expect to get what you pay for. This family run business works like a well oiled... More

We booked this place as soft landing before going hiking in the drakensberg (and then on into Durbs), intending it as a place to get our bearings and orientate ourselves. Little did we suspect that it would become one of the major highlights of our 2 week tour of kzn. Things that surprised us and even surpassed the forthcoming delights... More

I was travelling home from Joburg and decided that I needed a break from my journey and from the responsibilities of my lovely, but demanding farm that awaited my return. A quick phone call resulted in an overnight stop at Oaklands, where I was plied with wonderful food, superb hospitality and a spacious comfortable suite to rest. When you live... More

We have visited Oaklands Country Manor a few times over the years and all we can say is it gets better and better. Ideal stop over between Jo'burg and Durban in a beautiful tranquil setting amongst the mountains. The food is especially good from big breakfasts to gourmet dinners. Nice walks, horse riding all available. The rooms have been refurbished... More
