This venue was comfortable and affordable. Close enough to drive to the hotel in town for a good meal. But although I had arranged for a gluten free meal for my guest, this was overlooked; BUT the kitchen made a quick meal at breakfast.

Juanita and Schalk were the most accommodating and hospitable owners. The room in the main house was comfortable and private. The dinner was great and breakfast was first class. Thank you very much from Sharon and Brian,

Clean room, rich breakfast, good service! The Cottage is a good starting point to going by car to the Drakensberge. The small town Winterton has few restaurants, a big supermarket and ATMs. Gladly again!

Stayed here for three nights. Friendly atmosphere. Linda manages her team well and is a great host. Winterton Country Lodge is just 5 minutes out of town, yet quiet and totally secluded. Our room was spacious enough, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is freshly cooked to order. A minor inconvenience may be that WiFi is only available in the main building;... More
