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

We stayed here for 4 nights in early Feb. the Accommodation in good with all you need to relax and chill out. The pool and grounds are nice and with stunning views where ever you look. While we were there there was a group of noisy lady's singing and shouting in the early morning and late evening. A bit of... More

Tranquil, quiet, scenic Stayed over numerous times and enjoyed it every time. Staff super friendly, accommodation very comfortable, spacious with all you need. Kid friendly, with mini golf and other activities. Just check your SA cell signal, only Vodacom 3G and Cell C, no MTN signal.

Just to warn potential Guests. We have decided to spend a special evening, 14 of February, away from the very humid Durban and booked into the wonderful place at the Lake Naverone. After the arrival on 13 Feb we went to the Castleburn Restaurant, which was referred to us by the Lake Naverone management) where we have made a booking... More

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.
