Stayed in their chalets from 26 Dec to 1 Jan. They are really retro but the view spectacular. The housekeeping could do some more vacuuming as it was a bit dusty. Otherwise the hikes were great even if the map to get there was a little unclear.

Having for years rushed around shopping for everything required for Christmas dinner and then spending a large amount of time stuffing and cooking a turkey, gammon, trifle, and all the trimmings we decided that we would spoil ourselves and spend Christmas 2014 at a hotel. I did quite a bit of research to find somewhere that I as well as... More

We stayed over for four nights in the self catering chalets. Overseeing the majestic mountains with absolute serenity. These gentle giants in the early morning mist make you appreciate the greatness of GOD. The views were breath taking and in the early mornings we used to see the horses grazing outside the chalets. The place well kept and staff friendly.... More

Spent our honeymoon here in 2010. There was no honeymoon rooms available but the staff made it as special as it could be with champagne on arrival and rose petals scattered all over the room. The service was awesome and the views breath taking with peace and quite away from the city hussle. the food was delicious and well prepared... More

We had a quick 2 night break at Little Switzerland and weren't disappointed. Although the roads are not great to get there (especially the Sterkfonteon Dam route which is mainly gravel and pot holed for about half an hour drive)- but the route is so scenic it's really worth it. We had an amazing lunch and service on the hotel... More

The hotel was beyond amazing. We didn't need to go far for anything. Food was also great and the activities original. Only issue was our room had a huge crack which needed to be fixed. The staff were very helpful and helped us plan our activities for the time we stayed

We spent 3 wonderful days at Little Switzerland Resort with stunning views of the Berg, some bird watching, horse riding, fantastic food and so much more. We had the most amazing meals at both the hotel restaurant and at Cayote Café. (PS. The chocolate brownies at the hotel are to die for!!). Thank you for the most relaxing time we’ve... More

We stayed in the self-accommodating units a little further from the hotel itself. The view was spectacular, and being away from the hotel itself was, personally, quite refreshing as we felt like we had the place to ourselves. The hiking trails were awesome. We missed out on seeing the Bearded Vultures but will definitely try when we visit Little Switzerland... More

Little Switzerland offers either a hotel or self catering accommodation. We opted for self catering as this suits the children and us better. The self catering unit is clean and well maintained. Fireplace in the lounge with a shed stocked with wood and kindling. Underfloor heating and beds with electric blankets help keep the cold at bay. The views are... More

I was traveling with my family , 2 kids under 10, to Alpine Heath, and had an unfortunate incident of a double puncture. This took place about 23km away from the resort. We called Alpine Heath only to be told, they could not assist. We managed to get as far as a garage outside little Switzerland, from the security at... More
