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.

We stayed for 2 nights in the Thunzi cottage at the Berghouse B&B near Drakensbergen. Friendly welcome at a fantastic place. One of the most fantastic view and environment. And each morning you receive a huge (and tasteful) breakfast in your cottage. Perfectly located to organize some walking in the Royal National Park. Certainly a must if you like to... More

I stayed in the newest cottage (phezu I think) and it was absolutely idilic. Probably more meant for a couple but It was pure luxury on my own. Lovely and warm even when it was cold out and I had everything I could possibly need. Spent the afternoon/eve sitting out on the stoep watching the light change over the drakensberg.... More

We spent 3 nights at the Berghouse and Cottages. Wish it had been longer. We stayed at the Thokomala Cottage (12 sleeper). Spectacular views overlooking the mountains, a private lapa area right next to the house where we enjoyed a braai one night and a potjie the next. On the other side of the house we could pat the ponies,... More
