The couple who actually run Rose Cottage were on their honeymoon in Italy when we arrived for our one night stay. However Mum & Dad were very able substitutes. The reception was friendly in spite of the fact that we arrived very early. A hiccup about king size >>twin beds was speedily resolved and we were allowed to leave our... More

Excellent base to see and enjoy the central Drakensbergen. Good value for money, good food and friendly staff. The setting of the Lodge is very nice and quiet. Several nice outings possible in the area.

We stopped here on our way to Giants Castle. We booked the night of check in and owner was really helpful. We were a big group, and the owner really made our stay worth while. Comfy and cousy and perfect stop on route to the either the Southern or Central Berg.

Our third visit to Rose Cottage. Beautiful relaxing surroundings and friendly accommodating staff. Dogs and cats are quick to make themselves at home with guests. Some minor quirks with accommodation!

When we got up in the morning and pulled the curtains back there were Bontebok in the garden and we were told they were often there. Good... More

Being from Australia and driving up alone from Durban, I had many questions for the lodge's owners. Julita answered the emails promptly, was very informative and so friendly during my... More

Perfect stopover en route to / from Joburg / Durban. Peaceful friendly environment with interesting decor. Evening meal is perhaps a little expensive but perfectly prepared and convenient. Breakfast excellent.

The room was beautifully decorated. A home away from home. Excellent hospitality. Breakfast was divine. Served promptly and warm. Amazing location. Very near to restaurants and lots of activities in the area.
