My ten year old son and I visited with friends over the Easter weekend. What a lovely, friendly, relaxing little owner run hotel. The owner went out of his way to give us a personalised tour of the nearby Cape parrot sanctuary, which was a wonderful experience. The bar was cosy and the children loved the pool table. We also...

On our arrival... More

At this stage I would say that the Mountain Park Hotel is work in progress. Paul and Alwyn only took over the hotel in July 2014 and they have plans, great plans to make this a lovely old fashioned family hotel once again. Their enthusiasm is catching and It rubs off on one. I Have no doubt that they will... More

Great stay at this ole hotel with friendly staff who go out of their way. Relaxed atmosphere welcomed away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Will be back if we travel to KZN again. Need to remember our passports next time to do the trip up the Sand Pass

If you are looking for an eccentric, slightly quirky old world experience then this hotel is a must on your list of holiday destinations. On the other hand, if you need slick, quick and impersonal, then stick to a Holiday Inn or City Lodge, you won’t be happy at the Mountain Park Hotel. Having waded through the plethora of negative...
