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.

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
