We stayed for 4 nights. The rooms were a bit tired and dark compared to other hotels in the area. We had maintenance guys working on out water heater for 2 days and although they were friendly and apologetic the hotel should have moved us to another room. Our jacuzzi didn't work either which was disappointing.
The common areas need an upgrade too-there is no comfortable lounge to relax in on days your dont want to be outside.
Staff however were super friendly and Castleburn has some of the best views in the burg. Surrounded by water there are some great spots to relax and take in the fresh air.

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.
