It was once again a fantastic opportunity to stay at Rose Cottage. It is the ideal place to stay over when travelling between Pretoria and the Central and southern parts of the Drakensberg. My wife, Erika, and I have once again enjoyed the stay in our "Hut" and had a very good night's rest. The breakfast was very nice too.... More

Totally recommend this place if you would like to stay near Winterton! Julita and Schalk are great hosts, they will assist you in any way they can to make your stay pleasant. The house and cottage are set in a beautiful garden/park. Breakfast is nice and the rooms are clean and comfortable.

We stayed one night at Winterton. It is a beautiful and large place. We stayed in a small 1 bedroom kitchenette. The only downside was the mattress. Had a backache for 2 days after I slept there. It seems as though the mattresses have not be replaced in a long time... Otherwise would still recommend the place.

Found by chance and stayed 3 nights. Good location for visiting the Drakensbergs. Stayed in the rondavel in the grounds, a new experience for us! Friendly, helpful people and superb food, especially the optional evening meals. Lots of good advice regarding local sights, especially helpful regarding returning the rental car to Jo'berg airport.

Once again we were delighted to be staying in Rose Cottage where we enjoyed a beautiful evening meal on arrival. The owners were very pleasant and the staff were very efficient. As regular visitors to South Africa we would certainly return and would also recommend to other travellers.

Superb accomodation in superb peaceful surroundings. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The food excellent and the hospitality second to none. We only stayed for 2 nights, wish it could have been longer. Thankyou for a wonderful stay.

Brian was an exceptional host, and the rooms where very comfortable. The entire experience was so great that I have convinced my golf society that our next tour will be in the area so we can stay at the lodge.
