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

We came here with our toe young kids and had a fun trip. There is plenty to do activities-wise, from walks to put put (the course is very run down though), bowls, fishing, tennis and trampolining. The chalets are well kitted out in the kitchens, and the bedrooms warm with electric blankets and under-floor heating. The service was mixed -... More

Have you ever experienced that feeling that you’ve just arrived in a little space of heaven after having driven the road from hell? Well then Welcome to the Little Switzerland Resort in the Drakensberg. If you’re looking for artificial comfort and opulence, then rather support the Hilton family trust or any other chain enterprise for that matter. The nature of... More

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

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.
