Scenery is nice, clean backpackers with good communal area's. Unfortunately Staff, especially two women who seemingly run the place are EXTREMELY rude and unprofessional. Always yelling. The rest of the staff don't really seem to care about service/their jobs and are pretty useless. Mouldy toast 2 days running and expensive dinners. Completely ruins the atmosphere of what could be a cool place!
(The bald guy is great, if you need anything, ask him!!)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The venue is really amazing. The lodge is found on a stunning 300 hectares of land near the foot of the Amphitheatre (Royal Natal National Park) and Cathedral Peak. The Mpande River weaves through the lands. There are buck, small mammals and a fantastic array of wild birds near the 2 dams and a picture postcard view from the lawn, a 360 degree panorama that takes in the entire Northern range from the Amphitheatre all the way to Cathkin Peak. The lodge is a base from which you can explore different sections and all the highlights of the Drakensberg Park each day. Built from stone, thatch and wood, the place is like an artist's sculpture with stained glass, metal and wooden carvings, mosaics and beautiful indigenous rockeries. ... more less
