Spent three nights at the hotel which was most enjoyable. Staff friendly, food good, view from rooms spectacular. Free guided walks are easy and regular. Swimming pools are fabulous, heated or regular.

we held a week long sales conference here and experienced brilliant service from the very friendly staff. All meals had a great choice for vegetarians as well For those with a sweet tooth. The rooms are spacious and clean and the entire resort was well taken care of.

Stayed here for a week on a walking holiday. The room was excellent, with a fantastic view of the mountains. The food, which was served buffet style at breakfast & dinner, was really good. There was lots of choice at both meals. My personal favourite has to be the trout with lemon butter. Cooked to perfection ! The only negative... More

We joined our friends from Scotland for three night at the Hotel. We were helped with our luggage and welcomed by the young lady at the front desk. Loved our room 221! Well appointed, quiet and peaceful enough for little buck to visit at our balcony. Stayed with us for a while. The mountains are just too splendid and ever... More

Our reception was rather bureaucratic, we were required to pay up front despite having paid a 50% deposit in advance. We were then taking to our rooms, which were a considerable distance from the main hotel facilities and then required to re-park our car even much further away. The rooms were good and comfortable, we had a lovely mountain view.... More

Let's start with the drive from Winterton. Spectacular Scenery! and that just continues and continues at the hotel. The views are breathtaking. We were warmly welcomed and quickly settled in a room with another stunning view. The entire hotel is set on the most beautiful grounds. The amenities are numerous and people told us they had been returning to this... More

Accommodation good, particularly the honeymoon / presidential suites. Breathtaking views and crisp mountain air. Buffet meals excellent with wide choice. The freshly grilled trout fillets, and stirfry excellent. A pity the Bain maries not always hot. cocktail bar and sports pub, children's facilities.

Wanted to look at the hotel because last stayed there ±15 years ago & there's a conference coming up that I might want to attend. After ± 35kms on a poor road - it's being resurfaced in parts - we arrived at the boom signalling the entrance to the Nature Reserve. The 'guard' in attendance wanted R35 per head as... More

6 star location, absolutely unbelievable. It is a real treat to be able to walk into the mountains from your room. Comfortable rooms, we had number 61 which was recently fitted out, it is clean and spacious. Lots of sports available including rock climbing and horse riding. Not good for very young children but we were 2 adults and a... More

Old fashioned hotel with plenty of character and lots going on. Excellent swimming pool and smaller heated pool. When we arrived a conference for over 200 people was being held there but they checked out the next morning and the next two days were relatively quiet. Walks straight from your room. Organised walks/horse riding/bird watching/quad biking arranged on a daily... More
