Beautiful surroundings, wonderful hosts. The cottages have all the amenities one would need in the berg i.e. aircon, heater blankets...i was so happy that there was even a plunger... Julita and Quinton were wonderful hosts, thank you

Enjoyed the setting. Lovely location. Pleasant staff. Found accommodation itself to be rather over priced - value definitely not there. WiFi set up rather limited. Not really set up for business purposes.

Very tranquil, lovely setting, beautiful accommodation. This is a great location for the tourist attractions. Three lovely dogs, which is great if you like dogs, which we do. Set in a pecan orchard. ⭐

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.
