This hotel's team has a charm that brings us back time and time again with hospitality that is second to none and food that is consistently spectacular. Whether it's a quiet getaway that you're after or a chance to enjoy the company of the hotel's owners and... 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

A fabulous base from which to explore these stunning mountains. Really warm welcome and some of the best food we have ever tasted in South Africa. A pretty special wine list too and very comfy rooms. Great 1st night stop if you fly into Jo'burg and are exploring the Eastern Cape ...

This was our first time to KZN and we had the good fortune to stay at the Oaklands. What a lovely place. The staff was very welcoming, the rooms were comfortable and spacious. We had our meals there every evening and each one was delicious and home-made. A good choice of wines were avaliable. We were given the option of... More

We arrived on Friday afternoon at the country manor to the sound of a beeping indicator that I just had a flat tyre, this was followed by the warm welcome from simon and Annie. After checking in and being shown around the the manor, we were shown to our wonderfully appointed renovated room number 7. Our wheel was changed by... More

We booked here to break along car trip and regretted not staying for more than a night. Oaklands is run by four siblings who all seem to get along incredibly well. Simon was at the desk when we arrived and made us feel very welcome, personally showing us to our room which was cosy, comfortable and with great views. During... More
