The staff where great and supper friendly and the Main man Clement has an amazing sense off humour in Nelson Mandela's voice, a must see. The food in the Restaurant is great and both the food and wine is well priced. The bar and... More

A beautiful place to stay. We loved the special touches in the room like the decanter of port with crystal glasses, and the idiosyncratic garden with its fibreglass hippo and antelope. The lovely grounds came into their own at sunrise with the ranges turning pink, trees in their autumn foliage perfectly reflected in the still lake and mist rising from... More

Didn't realize it was the owner at the time, but he was very friendly and chatted to us and... More

We stopped by to have a nice warm breakfast. It was warm and light breakfast served in a lovely ambience. The view of Drakensburg mountains with a cup of coffee was perfect. We will recommend friends to stop by , and enjoy nature

Went for dinner and the selection was slightly limited. The food presentation was good and the meal tasted great. It has a boutique hotel feel which gives the place a sense of exclusivity. Venue is well decorated and has a warm touch.

This hotel was chosen at the last minute as our booked hotel was too far from the Sani Pass. We were not disappointed, it was great, everyone made us feel welcome. The food was great and the chef was interested to hear our feedback. Great views over the mountains.

A truly awesome experience. The restaurant staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are lovely with beautiful view. Menu prices slightly expensive for what you get but overall lovely place to visit. Thank you for the champagne and for making it a special time for us.
