We spent one long weekend in this lovely resort in the beautiful central Drakensberg. The place was easy to find. It was about a four-hour drive from Johannesburg. Being surrounded by mountains, the scenery was great. We enjoyed the easy hike down the trails right from the hotel. The room was very comfortable and clean even though it's a bit... More

We went to this hotel for our honeymoon in 1992, at that time we found the hotel wonderful. It looked precisely like the photo's and we loved the atmosphere and quiet. The food was absolutely to die for. We enjoyed lovely hikes and horseback riding. There are lovely chalets and rooms, all nestled in the breathtaking Drakensberg Mountains. There was... More

We hiked the mountains with one of their very knowledgeable guides and so friendly:) We saw the Drakensberg Boys Choir which is such a wonderful treat for anyone who... More

As we drove up the road surrounded by the stunning panorama of the Drakensberg Mountains, I just knew this was going to be an amazing experience! The hotel itself did not disappoint. We were warmly welcomed at reception and guided to our fabulous suite where a gorgeous bowl of fruit and complimentary sherry awaited us. The facilities were fabulous, the... More

My husband and I stayed at Champagne Castle for our 5th wedding anniversary and loved every second of our stay. The food was fantastic - there was a buffet at breakfast, lunch and supper, but the buffet had loads of options and was different each day. On top of that, there is morning and afternoon tea and sweet treats available... More

My husband and I spent 4 night at Champagne Castle in May. Wow! We had the cheapest of the rooms and we could not figure out what an upgrade would have got us as we were really impressed! We had a wonderful mountain view. We had been concerned as we read a lot of negative reviews of the food before... More

Fantastic rooms with stunning views, quiet and very comfortable bed! Very friendly and helpful staff! Perfect setting! The food is just fabulous. I will definitely go back. Good value for money if taking account that 3 meals per day are included.
