Rose Cottage was a great B&B - the room was clean and spacious. The host Brian was incredible. The breakfast was great and the honesty bar was a very nice touch. We had supper there on the Saturday night which was great. Would highly recommend Rose Cottage!

Excellent hospitality, being welcomed as we arrived. The room was so comfortable and incredibly clean. The welcoming carafe of sherry was such a nice idea and so good. The bedding and towels were clean and comfortable too. Highly recommendable.

The service from booking to departing was excellent. The rooms are comfortable and the beds and bedding lovely. To further improve there could be bottled water in die fridge. Breakfast was lovely but if on business it being the only meal until the evening, it would be nice if the warm part was also self help, as an extra slice... More

Fanatastic Service, friendly staff, good location and excellent value for money and great breakfast in the morning. I will stay there again and possibly take my kids back with me for a weekend away sometime.

Wonderful reception, we've been treated with even the smallest of wishes we expressed, nothing was a problem. Lovely setting with beautiful trees, special experience driving in with magical fall colour. Blesbok chasing dogs is hilarious.

My husband and I stayed here between backpacking trips. I cannot recommend Winterton Country Lodge highly enough. Amazing and affordable food, comfortable and spacious cottage, attentive and informative host, beautiful grounds. And friendly house cats and beagles to make the stay feel a little bit more like home. A great find!

This is a great guesthouse to stay at, within an hour's drive of many hiking routes. My room was clean and well appointed, and also spacious. The breakfast was excellent and you will generally be very well looked after here.

We stayed over for two nights. Great decision. The location gave us the freedom to explore the Central Drakensberg and provided us with a great retreat at the end of each day. We had one of the King rooms near the park with the Buck. Just a heads up here ..... one of the resident dogs tends to chase the... More

My husband and I only stayed for a night on our way back to Johannesburg from the Southern Drakensbergs, but it was a very pleasant stay. the main building and the common grounds in the property are truly beautiful - they really make you feel relaxed. We stayed in the round room, which had a rustic charm feel to it... More
