Conveniently situated to Underberg, we experienced this as a well run resort, with friendly staff, and well appointed accommodation. Quiet and relaxing yet enough to keep you busy, should you wish. Beautiful views of the Drakensberg Mountains. This is certainly one of the better time share resorts in SA - as a matter of fact would put this amongst the... More

We arrived at Castleburn on Saturday afternoon, note to travellers coming from the Gauteng region plan your trip as this is a very long drive, and upon arrival the receptionist checked us in and there is a mandatory R55 levy that must be paid. Booked into chalet 55 and the view was breath taking. Words cannot explain the views and... More

Good standard of accommodation, spacious rooms and entertainment area. Plenty of activities for all ages. A day trip up the mountain to Lesotho is a great outing, just remember you need your passports. We took lovely walks in the area, the birding was exceptional. Otters in the dam in front of the chalet were a great attraction but I dont... More

A lovely resort, so tranquil and beautiful, the unit allocated to us was good, it is such a pity that there are no heaters other than a fire place in the lounge. It is a costly exercise to keep the fire burning through the coldest part of the afternoon and night. Will gladly go back in summer it will be... More

We were welcomed on arrival with a glass of Old Brown Sherry and a reception full of bubbly staff ready to please and entertain their new guests for the weekend. Our chalet was very comfortable and had everything we needed including a complimentary bag of wood which came in very handy. The entertainment was great and we even tried our... More

We have developed a habit of having one meal at the Castleburn restaurant when staying at Lake Naverone and have never been disappointed. The food is delicious and hot. The staff are always welcoming and attentive. The downside from our recent visit is the speed of the delivery of the courses. We were not given adequate time to digest one... More

we had an excellent time and tried to do as much as possible in and around the area. The meals were very good value and we enjoyed all the events that we went to. The manager was fantastic in organising a car which was far superior to the one that we got from Durban which was not really equivalent to... More

We stayed here for the weekend at one of their chalets, in the glen. It was beautiful, well maintained and had everything you needed. With the storm we experience on one of the evenings, we received a call from reception checking if we are ok and if we were enjoying our stay. I have been here now for the second... More

We spent a weekend here Feb 2015 and a few days in Jan 2014. This is a gorgeous resort with some nice hiking trails to suit everyone. The accommodation was excellent with very good resort facilities including canoeing, swimming pool and horse riding. I cannot comment on the restaurant as we prepared our own meals. The staff was very helpful,... More
