Exceptionally friendly staff made this breakaway a pleasure from the moment I made the first booking call until the last moment when we left. The Drakensberg surroundings are arguably one of the most picturesque settings anyone could ask for and this hotel does the surroundings justice. Well maintained gardens, clean crisp bedrooms etc. makes me want to come back as... More

We are regular visitors here. This time we got a nice refurbished room. Reception, lobby, restaurant and bar is typically 70-ies architecture and design. Either you like it or you do not. Hotel is beautifully located. A place for escapists - a place to relax or to use a starting point for healthy hiring trips. Friendly staff and god service.... More

We spent 3 nights at the Drakensberg Sun Resort and had great time. My partners and I never been before to that part of South Africa and we were enchanted by those valleys. It was a bit complicate to find the place due to lack of signage and direction, but when we finally got there we were taken away by... More

After numerous visits to the Drakensberg Sun (since 2005) my husband and I became proud timeshare owners a few years ago. The Drakensburg Sun is one of our favorite destinations in South Africa. On each and every visit to the resort we observed continuous improvements to the grounds and hotel. The recent refurbishments in and around the hotel and chalets... More

We stayed at the timeshare chalets where we had a lovely view over the valley and the lake. The chalets are comfortable and well equipped for a laid back holiday and facilities for preparing food for the family. The grounds are well maintained wooded with lovely gardens and lots of pathways for taking long or short walks. The resort is... More

very good service, the room was very spacious and clean. The location might be a bit of a challenge to those without own transport. I liked sheep meat well cooked. The only blemish is there is no information on how one can reach this area from different towns in South Africa

We have stayed at most of the hotels in the Central Drakensberg over the last 12 years and the Drakensberg Sun scores average in relation. The rooms are very nice with all the amenities expected. It was clean and the linen was fresh and comfortable. The only negative might be the shower pressure but with the drive to use less... More

What an amazing hotel. Nestled in the Drakensberg mountain about 5 hours from Johannesburg and around 3 hours from Durban. The rooms are big with 2 queen-size beds, decent toilet/ bath/shower room, very clean and a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids aged 11 and 8) could easily share one room. Dinner and breakfast are served in the restaurant... More
