A very easy drive from Durban gets you to this hotel in the Berg in a really beautiful location with amazing mountain views. We were upgraded to a 6 sleeper chalet (number 120) This self catering chalet was spotlessly clean and nicely furnished with the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on! The hotel reception, lounge, dining and conference... More

We spent 3 nights at Little Switzerland, and relished every minute. The room was lovely, the scenery stunning, facilities are very good, staff were wonderful, and food is delicious with a really good variety on offer. I would definitely recommend a visit, and we will most definitely return.

We (My husband, 23 year old son and his friend) spent 4 nights over the Easter weekend at Little Switzerland and once again had a wonderful time. I have found on previous occasions, and at different hotels, that when you return to a previously good place you can be a bit disappointed but not this time. We stayed here over... More

Spent 3 days at this stunning location in the self- catering chalets. The chalets were pleasantly decorated, very well equipped and had a calm and relaxing atmosphere with the most stunning views of the Amphitheatre. The gardens are well kept with an inviting pool and great play facilities for little ones. Each chalet has a fireplace which gives you a... More

Spent 3 nights here...Most awesome views of the mountains around. The Chalets are a little old now and do need a revamp especially the bathrooms. The service at reception is excellent and the facilities are tops. Glen will make your booking process an absolute dream.

This review is rather long so let me start by summarizing that my stay at Little Switzerland was just beautiful. The chalets are comfortable, well maintained-and-stocked and spacious. And for R450 per person per night; the hotel offers great value. The majority of the rooms face the Bergs so relaxing with a cup of coffee in the morning or a... More
