I can only reiterate the other reviews of this resort. A beautiful setting, with the mountains surrounding the resort and the water in the centre. We didn't manage to book a chalet but the two bedroomed fishing lodge apartment was comfortable and well-equipped. All the staff were very friendly, including the security guard at the main gate, and the unit... More

Castleburn is the most perfectly serene and peaceful place I have ever stayed at. We have been there a couple of times already and have never been disappointed. I recommend this place for anyone who would want to get away from the pressures of everyday. Well done to the team that keep that huge wheel well oiled and working so... More

Stayed in a jacuzzi unit, 2 bedrooms downstairs and loft room upstairs. Even though the unit is old, housekeeping is doing a sterling job of keeping the unit spotlessly clean. There is no grime anywhere to be seen, not even in the shower area. The unit was in front of the pond which has an abundance of birds and ducks.... More

Surrounded by absolute beauty! Awesome fishing in the main dam, just to be out on the water early in the morning or at sun set is such a treat with the view of the surrounding Drakensberg mountain range, rolling green hills and the crispness of ultra clean air. Always a treat visiting this magic place nestled away in this picturesque... More

We had a double birthday celebration a 40 and a 60 and chose to swop time and too chalets 73 and 78. We were a little early and passed through the boom gate with a security guard who is a major asset to management. He performed his tasks with a smile and a welcome. Reception was equally welcoming with a... More

My first visit to the Berg and we were lucky enough to choose Castleburn. What a friendly and welcoming bunch of people we met on arrival. Pleasant accommodation, fabulous surroundings, great amenities. Would I return, for sure.

We spent the past weekend at this resort. Beautifully positioned around various trout dams with the splendid Drakensberg as a magnificent backdrop. The chalets were beautifully clean and in good condition. There is an air of tranquillity.....so much to do: fly fishing, kayaking, bird watching, putt putt, mini golf, walks, horse riding. Plenty for children to do too. We did... More

We have just returned from a week in Castleburn and what a fantastic experience. We arrived late the Friday night due to the fog and was greeted by very friendly staff and handed a complimentary sherry to drive out the stress and cold of the long trip. We immediately sat down for dinner in front of a marvellous fire place... More

Castleburn is a tastefully designed resort within viewing distance of the Drakensberg mountains. It's not right on the cliff-face, but the views are still fantastic. The key to this resort is the beautiful lake that does everything: create the scenery, attract the birdlife, provide fishing and give all the kayaking and boating opportunities for the whole family.

We really enjoyed our midweek break to Castleburn and would certainly recommend the resort to anyone looking for a relaxed Berg experience. The trout fishing is excellent, there's lots to do in the area and the resort is very well maintained and run.
