Vaughn and Chantal could not have done more to look after us. We stayed at Phezulu for 4 nights last month. We were delayed at JHB Airport and they were unperturbed by our late arrival. Over the next few days they helped us with internet access, recommendations for walks and more. The cottage was charming. Boutique rustic with beautiful found... More

I wanted to take my parents visiting from Canada to Drakensburg for a long weekend. After quite a bit of research, I decided to book a cottage at Berghouse & Cottages.

We stayed for just two nights, before moving to Thendele. It was the perfect place to start our South African holiday - just a quiet set of cottages on a big property with fabulous views of the Amphitheatre (when the cloud lifted) and lots of spring flowers all around. We'd had no chance to shop so took up the offer... More

We did a night stop in the Berg en route to Durban and decided to stay at the Berghouse & Cottages. Apparently the shorter route from the N2 to the berg is not in a very good condition and we were advised to take the longer route via the R616. The drive is a bit longer, but it is well... More

Visited Berghouse and Cottages for Old years eve and spent a few days there. Even though it rained quite a bit, the atmosphere was awesome! The mini Stonehenge offers an awesome place to chill with a beer, or wine, or any beverage really and just be transported into another world with the impressive views of the Amphitheatre mountains.

Great view and excellent starting point to explore the Berg. Kitchen with all equipement, good bathroom, great bed. Stayed in winter and we really enjoyed the wood stove. Owners gave excellent advice on the possible hiking trails. In the morning, a superb breakfast is deliverd. At night you Cook your own, groceries possible in nearby (+-30min) city.

We stayed two nights at the Berghouse Cottages and can only warmly recommend this place. The Location is simply stunning with nice views on the Drakensberg mountains and nice walking and hiking trails around the cottages. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and the cottages beautifully decorated. Clean and individual interiors make this place surely a must-stop.

Great place to spend a weekend in the Drakensberg. Vaughn and Chantal run a very good setup. They are so friendly and approachable and their own appreciation of the area is infectious. Their good nature is also reflected in their happy staff members. The chalet was perfectly set-up and had everything we needed. Its aptly decorated and very clean. We... More
