When going on a complementary ponyride our daughter cut an artery in her foot. The grooms didn't even notice it and went on like nothing happened. Luckily there was another mom that was a nurse, she was able to stop the bleeding. We rushed to the nearest private hospital that was 1 hour and 15 minutes drive away. Our daughter... More

Although precautions are taken on all of our activities unfortunately accidents do happen.

This is a very nice destination in the Drakensburg. Features alot of facilities on site and excellent views. Reasons for not however rating it higher is that the in room amenties and decor is a bit on the dated side. Nothing wrong with them, but just not what you would rate as 5 star.

We booked at this hotel at the last minute after driving through the Midlands Meander and realizing we needed an extra day. Very pleasant staff and beautiful scenery. Was a bit disappointed at how outdated the decor was and would have preferred at least more modern bathroom facilities. Poor roads in the area unfortunately contribute to the lack of upgrades...

During December 2013 I stayed at the Little Switzerland Hotel and Chalets in the Drakensberg mountains. It is about a 3 hour drive from Durban and the roads are in good condition with the exception of the last 10 kilometers before the resort where the road surface is damaged and has not been maintained in a long time so cautious...

We stayed at this hotel ten years ago and was remembered as a pristine hotel. On our arrival we were shocked at the condition of the hotel, the grounds, the facilities and the units. The entire property is run down and general maintenance is lacking. This hotel is situated in such a prime position and the views are unbelievable we... More

We rented a 6 sleeper, self-catering chalet overlooking the amphitheatre in the Northern Drakensberg. The chalet was well fitted out, especially for the colder weather, very clean and, a bonus for self-catering units, it was serviced daily at no additional cost. The views from the chalet are spectacular. The hotel grounds are extensive and there are many walks and other... More

Booked a time share unit. Staff was friendly but that's about all. The units were poorly maintained and furniture is extremely out dated! One of the bathroom's basins was cracked. Main bedrooms' duvet cover was stained. Seating in the lounge was extremely uncomfortable! Unit also smelled of stale tobacco smoke. These units are in a desperate need of an upgrade.... More

Stunning view of the Drakensberg mountains, at very silent location. During the night you only hear the animals around your lodge (Not sure if its the same in high season) Bit old fashioned furniture, but no complaints at this price. Never had such a big and comfortable bed, minimum 2.40 by 2.20m, almost could not find back my wife in... More

"Old man's beard" or tree moss only grows in unpolluted air and it's presence serves as a litmus test for purity. Whilst time may have taken its toll on this ageing estate - the abundance of tree moss speaks to other qualities. Perched high above the world famous Drakensberg Amphitheater - its truly a place of splendor. The incredible views,... More
