On check-in we were greeted with a welcome glass of sherry, so setting the tone for a great week. Ok so we went in winter but it was fabulous. Horse riding on site, wonderful local hikes including one at the nearby world heritage site, kayaking, walking in nearby streams - all in all a wonderful destination for old and young alike (our party ranged from 6 - 81) While we did not have fly fishing rods the setting for early morning anglers looked beautiful. Only disappointment was the price to do some laundry - way overpriced for a self catering resort. (although we did not get to use the restaurant - too many good local supplies of delicious food for self-catering, including good old Puckety's in Underberg- their trout offerings on the menu seemed reasonable).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

Spacious, thatched, architect-designed cottages, built of hand-hewn local stone, cluster around Lake Madingofani. Its shimmering surface reflects the rocky summits of the Garden Castle and is disturbed only by the breeze and the occasional trout jumping. The estate borders on a Natal Parks Board nature reserve, neighboring the uKhahlamba Drakensberg World Heritage Site proclaimed in year 2000 and the famous Giant's Cup hiking trail which passes through it. For chilly Berg evenings, the private, luxuriously furnished cottages have a stone fireplace; there is also an impressively equipped kitchen.
