After we got married at Montusi, we came back for our 2 year anniversary. The accommodation was lovely as always and we received many special touches to make our stay even more special. The staff are always friendly and very accommodating, meals are delicious and the view of the Amphitheater is unrivaled. For a quiet Berg getaway, this is the... More

The accomodation was really well, actually not too many comments. Just did not get the WOW-effect. The little houses are comfortable and very clean. Nice hikes from the lodge as well as horseriding. The other activity options like mountainbike, quad ride etc were very close at 4 km. Great lodge for people fan of hiking every day or like the... More

Staff are efficient and friendly. Stayed in a garden suite... couldn't have asked for better accommodation... spacious and comfortable with stunning views. Had breakfast and dinner at the restaurant. .. Every meal was delicious! Hiking, fishing and horse riding on the premises, other activities a short drive away. Looking forward to visiting montusi again.

We stayed in one of the new mountain suites, it was modern and well equipped. (Loved the gas fireplace and the underfloor heating.) Clearly marked hiking trails in beautiful scenery. Good food, friendly service, and the drinks are very reasonable priced. I would have liked more privacy at our cottage, the view asks for open curtains and coffee on the... More

We ended up only getting to stay here one night on our way from East London to Pretoria en route to Kruger NP. About 30 minutes after we checked in, we were trying to rework our schedule to see if we could skip Pretoria and stay here an extra night! It is hard to do this place justice with a... More

We spent 3 days in one of the stunning self catering cottages at the resort. The staff here are exceptionally friendly and helpful. The cottage was spacious and felt nice and private. The views are breathtaking. We enjoyed some fantastic hikes and activities in the area. I will definitely go back!

We stayed here in June 2015 and the place is absolutely amazing with stunning views of the drakenberg and the amphitheatre. The rooms are modern with a gas fireplace which comes in very handy in the evening. The room was equiped with a king size bed and an ensuite with a shower and a bath. The view from the room... More

Absolutely stunning mountain views. Beautiful setting . Comfortable and modern bedrooms, with lounge and fireplace ( for those cosy winter days ) . Bonus includes a bar fridge and the rooms are all separate from one another, so you basically have your own private little cottage with a patio . The meals were well presented and everyones needs were catered... More
