Pleasant places offers peace and tranquillity in the most beautiful surroundings after a day of exploring the Drakensburg Mountains. The lodges are well furnished with the touches only very thoughtful hosts can anticipate. All the food is local, home cooked and delicious. We had breakfast in the large dining room overlooking the garden and valley belong. There was a very... More

Pleasant but definitely not 4 star or 9 rating. I had flea bites day after staying. Overall felt it was overpriced having just stayed at Golden Gate Hotel which was better value and had all the amenities.

After a long dirty road ride we ended up in a lovely garden room welcomed by Linda. The room was perfect after being warmed up, the dinner was really enjoyable, the help regarding our health problem was great so was the final farwell.

A beautiful setting in the country side with flowers everywhere. Like driving into an old English country manor in South Africa! The host and hostess were marvelous and definitely stay for Linda's cooking at night! Best meal of the trip in South Africa! Very central location for exploring the area.

Highly deserving of 4 stars, Linda and John ensure your stay is comfortable and extremely pleasant and nothing is too much trouble. The evening dinner was superb, a starter of excellent celery soup. Main course consisted of Fillet on a bed of cauliflower mash with a delicious mushroom gravy and fresh vegetables. I am not a pudding fan but the... More

What a find this was! Charming, comfortable, warm rooms and a fabulous home from home enjoying an incredible view; with our friendly and welcoming hosts John and Linda and their staff, our stay was memorable, even though the weather was not. Log fires and with the best breakfast we have experienced in KZN, this is a complete delight. Would highly... More
