Beautiful hotel,excellent service. Food was good but could be better, menu needs variety. Stunning scenery and location. We stayed at a mountain facing suite....the view was amazing, clean and comfortable. I would recommend this place for a great getaway ☺

We picked this hotel based on its location for a one-night stay while touring through KZN. It probably would have been more enjoyable for a longer stay. The hotel grounds provide lovely views of the Drakensberg and access to several nice hiking trails, so you can avail yourself of some nice walks while staying at a pretty comfortable place. I...

Peaceful and relaxed as always with splendid mountain views. Tea and scones were superb and served with a smile. Great service from the reception to the lounge. Ideal for relaxing walks in the morning or afternoon.

We relaxed at the hotel after a hike in the area and enjoyed friendly hospitality and pleasant staff. The ideal spot from which to start hiking in the area. Very informative regarding hiking. Lovely gardens amd abundant bird life. Nice place for visitors to relax.

I loved the feel of this hotel. Everything was so welcoming and warm. The rooms are not very modern but as modern as one can expect. By that i mean, this hotel is very "old school" in a good sense and so I am sure the decor is kept same for a reason. All meals included and all meals really... More

champagne castle was hands down the best hotel i have visited. The food was absolutely amazing and the service could not be better. Would just have liked to have a double bed instead of twin beds, but the rest of the resort made up for it.. Booking was swift and easy. Management was aways available and visible. Nice intimate setting.... More

Room, dining room, guest lounges and bar are superb. Key though was the attention to detail from senior management team, having requested a special lawn bowling event, for which they pulled out all stops. Thanks chaps! All staff very well trained and fabulous positive attitude. A real pleasure to have been a guest for three days, sad to depart and... More

Spent 4 nights at this great hotel. Amazing attentive and friendly service. We took advantage of the guided walks and horseback riding on premise. Also had massages at the spa. Extremely comfortable beds and great food. Really excellent hotel.

Wow. Such attention to detail. The food is superb. We have come back for the second time for lunch. Highly recommended. We have accommodation in a timeshare hotel but prefer to eat here . You just cannot compare ! It is best to book in advance as it seems others have the same bright idea.
