A friend and I travelling from Australia have stayed at Sandford on three separate occasions. Whilst we mostly have gone there as a stop off point from or to Joburg airport, we have always enjoyed our short stays at Sandford. The rooms are comfortable and the dining area is old school charming. A cosy bar with weird and wonderful paraphernalia... More

Wow, what a lovely stay. Brad and his Staff are just awesum. The place was so cosy and warm. Our bedrooms were spotless and overlooked the valley - just breathtaking. We all loved every moment from the cosy beds to the gorgeous meals. Thank you all so much. We will be back . Charlyn and Ron Smart

On 30 - 31 August 2014 30 mothers of children with autism descended on Sandford Country Hotel for a getaway treat. The staff and management of the hotel were extremely obliging and accommodating of our needs. We were pampered and the food was homely and delicious. I highly recommend this wonderful getaway for all those wanting a quiet retreat away... More

If you want to hike in the Drakensberge you have to stay in the region. The Sandford Park is nice place to stay. The Cottage like structure is really nice. Some renovation would be nice in the rooms, bathrooms are 70s style. It should be lower priced in this respect. The buffet in the night as well as the breakfast... More

You do get what you pay for but this hotel does have everything you need, to a standard that is more than adequate for the overnight visitor. The rooms we stayed in on the top level are fairly new but do signs of frequent usage. Everything is still clean and we were comfortable and relaxed in the room. Although basic... More

Sandford Park Management staff were able to negotiate an excellent plan to fit my budget. This was very helpful. We had initially drawn up a conference brief detailing our conference requirements.

Before we talk about the accommodation, let's start with the dinner! The quality of the food and the cooking is really outstanding. No need to even bother looking for restaurants, especially for dinner! The accommodation is exceptionally well maintained and exceptionally clean. It is located in a slightly isolated position that offers lovely views of the horizon. Just one day... More
