We booked at Drakensberg Sun Resort for our 10-Year Anniversary. From booking to check-out, it was a superb experience. The service, food and boy-oh-boy the view from the room (1st floor) was exquisite. We shall certainly re-visit. This is definitely one for your bucket list!

The hotel offers great view to Drakensberg. The hotel is in good condition, nice staff and good food. The pool area is nice and the heated pool is great to enjoy even in lower temperatures. The WiFi is excellent and free. I would fully recommend this place.
