Restaurant and maintenance staff friendly and the facilities was really good. I was a guest at the hotel. It was the first time at a hotel I was asked to pay an additional R200.00 to make use of the Sauna and Jacuzzi for 1 hour. The hotel was not fully booked and was refused to check out an hour later...

The hotel has the best views. Unfortunately the restaurant servicing Ala Carte Meals are not a bonus and limits the enjoyment of having dinner It closes at nine and the food is average. Perhaps a full board, option with a nice buffet can be considered

Excellent facilities and setting/ very helpful staff members/ magnificent location in the Drakensbergs, with plenty of hikes close by. There is a beautiful waterfall at the border with Lesotho entrance, if you do not have time for longer hikes. Just dreaming on a bench by the poolside and watching horses and mountain peaks can be equally soul healing...For the less... More

The view from the hotel's restaurant left me awe-struck. The staff is friendly and helpful. That's just about it. I expected more for R952/person/night. The glass door of my room (37) locked properly - but did not close properly - a huge gap which will let in freezing air in winter. A broad grey banner ran across my tv screen... More

I visited with my husband and child in January and was really impressed with the friendliness of the staff. The rooms were clean and decent, house keeping was good. My only issue was with the flies in the dining area. Probably due to the farm nearby.

Bushman's Nek resort is a beautiful, tranquil resort. Many amenities on site, which include rock pools, hot and cold water, bowls, tennis courts, SPA and off site horse riding, paintballing and fishing are available. The view from our log cabin was stunning. The staff is friendly, helpful and very accommodating, especially the gentleman whose name is Wonder - he was... More

Went for the day. Was really beautiful and nicely laid out. I got the R90 calamari basket and got so little food it could fit in the palm of my hand. 8 rings to be exact. Highly over-priced!!!! Played some put put but the pool got really busy so didnt swim.

Did not stay at the hotel, but had dinner with three friends on Wednesday January 13. Three of the guests ordered the lamb curry. Turned out to be beef but no fuss was made since we had guests with us. My wife's 'lamb' curry consisted of some rice, gravy, four small potatoes and not a single piece of meat. Rather... More

The resort is in a great location even tough there is about 30 kilometres of dirt road to get to it. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the management was great. The rock pool at the... More

Beautiful resort. Clean and top notch facilities. Lots to do such as horse riding, walking, hiking, mountain biking, beautiful rock pool and for the not so adventurous, just resting in the beautiful Drakensburg Mountains. Views spectacular. Road to get to resort is hellish though. 37km on dirt road, which puts a bit of a damper on the trip. Definitely need... More
