A warm welcome awaited us at Winterton, amongst the lush green wooded area. We stayed in a Krall in the grounds, a round hut, which is now thankfully equipped with modern day facilities. Staff did everything they could to ensure our stay was a success and the food was great. Wifi was a problem but what can you expect in... More

We enjoyed staying here and had a wonderful, special Valentine's dinner outside under the lights and stars. The full kitchen was helpful because we were able to eat dinner and breakfast on our own. Also, the location was perfect to access several hikes in the Drakensberg Mountains.

Made very welcome and had a very enjoyable stay Tried to buy the carving of the big five in the reception area but not willing to sell, I am not surprised one of the best I have seen. would most certainly stay if in the area again. The quality of the cooking and food provided was great

We used Winterton Country Lodge as a stop over between Dundee and Durban. We were so pleased that we stayed two nights. The lodge is a short drive out of Winterton and accessed through security gates. The grounds and public areas are beautifully kept. There is a small pool and four sun loungers with shade. The dining area is stunning... More

Nice restful setting on the edge of town. Dining room bar and lounge are set in warm cottage design the high thatch roof adds to pleasing atmosphere. Great service, rooms very spacious and lack nothing. Staff and owners provide excellent service great food. Only extra I would suggest is some fresh milk in the room fridge for tea.

We had SUCH a fantastic stay and would go back tomorrow! Julita and Schulk were incredibly accomodating. Everything was clean and Rose Cottage was like home away from home. Brian and Rozanne were lovely too but we only met them on our last day. Our laundry was done for us! New Year's eve was great! Sally's food is simply AMAZING... More

Winterton Country Lodge is the perfect base to visit the central ánd northern Drakensbergen! Once you have entered this hidden gem (just outside of Winterton), the friendly owners Rozanne and Brian do everything in their power to make you feel at home. The rooms are spacious, the swimming pool very refreshing and Brian (a former ranger in Kruger) can tell... More

We enjoyed our stay a lot. The room we had, was very spacious, the garden and surroundings so beautiful and peaceful. An extraordinary extra is the dinner you can get every evening. We found it very convenient and the meals superb. Also the owners are very helpful and friendly!
