It was a surprise weekend. It was out of this world. I will be back. Very romantic and lots to do. Horseriding, hiking, go carts, mountain biking, quad bikes, games room, bar, spa I enjoyed the horseriding. Stunning rooms with underfloor heating and electric blankets and spa bath. I will go back anytime.

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.

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.
