I stayed here for a conference. There was excellent service, a comfortable and clean room. The food was very good and always more than enough. The conference held more than 150 people, with many requiring lifts at different times to airports, without a hitch that I was aware off. Lovely views and very quiet. Ask for a room with a... More

We spent two days here. We were in one of the two thatched suites. It was quite stunning. Even though we did not self cater it was very well equipped even with a nespresso machine. The spaciousness wonderful, it has a large covered balcony overlooking the trout dam with stunning views of the mountain. Very private - away from the... More

My husband and I have just returned from a trip to South Africa. We started in Kruger and heading south to Cape Town. Having travelled this route before, I wanted him to experience not only the national parks but also the splendour of the mountains of South Africa. And what better mountains to experience than the Drakensberg. And if you... More

We went to Champagne Castle for 5 days and 4 nights at the end of June 2014. It was really good, the area breathtakingly beautiful, the hotel comfortable and the food excellent. There was, however, two things that put me off the hotel. The most important thing was the mess the hotel made of our booking. I asked the hotel... More

We have just returned from a short stay at Champagne Castle Hotel, which is situated in the central part of the Drakensberg mountain range. We try to visit this hotel every year in the winter months, when the crisp clear winter days sharpen the magnificent mountain scenery that sits right before you. The Champagne Castle Hotel has every comfort. Warm... More

We had a great time staying here. The location is perfect, especially for hiking. The hotel provided a list and description of hiking trails that were all accessible from the main hotel trail. We stayed in a suite, which was a nice size and recently updated. The food is awesome. We couldn't believe the quality and options at the buffet... More

After several stays in the Drakensbergen at different locations we decided to stay at the Champagne Castle hotel. We loved it from the very first moment. All personnel are highly skilled and they treat their guest in a very good way. The buffets are very tasty. The location of the rooms is superb with stunning views. A place to come... More

Stayed at the hotel in April for a 2 night stay with 2 other families. The location of this hotel is absolutely amazing. Right at the foothills with unparalleled view of the Drakensburg mountain range. Any closer and you will be on the hills. Rooms were very spacious. Styling was old period but comfortable. Biggest drawback though was the additional... More
