“recent stay @ Champagne Sports Resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

My wife & I had my Brother in law out from Manchester UK recently 07 March 2014 & decided to take him on a short vacation to the Champagne Sports Resort in Winterton KwaZulu-Natal for the weekend. We arrived @ 20h30 on Friday 07 March 2014. The admin process bon arrival was pleasant & professional. Our chalet was clean & well presented. The rooms were clean with excellent views of the Cathkin peaks. The leisure areas were excellent, swimming pools; living areas; restaurant; coffee shop. We enjoyed the facilities & the walks in the resort. Parking facilities were safe & secure; area was lit up; gardens were well presented, good sighting of birds. In fact we saw a large owl & gazelle's in the resort.

Room Tip: chalets are v good, private & family friendly.

This is my third stay at this superb Drakensberg resort. The self catering apartments are spacious and views of the mountains are scenic and breathtaking? There is so much to do at the resort and the facilities nearby are great eg canopy tours about 15 minutes from the resort. The resort is slightly more than. 2 hours from Durban and will visit again and again.

I attended a business conference at this venue. I would highly recommend the venue which is exceptionally well-geared towards this. There are plenty of activities available - boules, quizzes, golf, spa, etc - for you to do in your own downtime and spend some quality bonding time with your colleagues. We saw an amazing thunderstorm come across the valley. Being vegetarian I was pleasantly surprised by the fresh salads and veggie dishes on offer, not forgetting the mouth-watering desserts! Friendly staff. My couple of complaints are: there were no toiletries in the rooms we had but housekeeping brought these later and the toilet facilities in the outdoor conference rooms need to be improved.

I was here for business. The place is absolutely fantastic. The environment is amazing. The room was really clean and I had appreciate the big shower. Food in general is very good, no complain.
The staff is really professional and faster.
Briefly, this place is strictly recommended.

We all enjoy returning to Champagne Sports. The food is excellent-especially the fresh fish, stir fries & pancakes. The children's entertainment and activities keep my ten year old busy and even my teen made some friends this time. There's a lovely golf course for dad and the friendly hands on approach by management makes it easy to focus on relaxing and read a book. The booking ladies who deal with our emails however are not as efficient, often taking time to respond and not always answering our questions. I was disappointed to learn from one of the managers that there was a December special I knew nothing about. We have been coming to Champagne Sports for 10 years and at nearly R4000/day for a family of 4, we should be on some kind of loyalty programme of mailing list to be advised of specials. I managed to get 1 night on the special. I would also have liked a room closer to the main building as requested in my booking email.

We went to stay at the hotel for a work year end function. The rooms were very comfortable and the beds and bedding of very high quality. The room had a balcony with a beautiful view. The bathroom was nice with double basins, bath and shower, although we could have done with extra hand towels as we were 2 women sharing.
The hotel is located well for enjoying activities nearby and it has nice swimming pool area. We had a buffet dinner which was varied and delicious and the buffet breakfast was equally outstanding.

Our first visit to this establishment using the self catering units and was so well worth it :)
Even though it rained most of the time we all had a super relaxing time. The unit was clean.....:))) and the staff we encountered were very pleasant. Would recommend it to everyone :)))
