Little Switzerland Hotel
Ranked #3 of 14 Bergville B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 7, 2010

We stayed in the time-share apartments. First the location and views are truly spectacular - breakfast sat outside taking in the view of the Drakensburg was a real treat. The chalet was well equipped and clean but the decor needed an upgrade - very 1980s. We ate at the hotel which was OK and generally the service was friendly and good but nothing special. Little things were annoying; the water in the pool in the health and fitness centre needed to be swept for instance, the one bar in the evening had two TVs with sports channels blaring and they weren't switched down or off even when we put the jukebox on - and we were the only people in the bar except the barman.
Nothing was bad and we enjoyed ourselves but I am sure there are better out there.

We arrived here late in the evening after we encountered a bug problem in Orion. (see my review).
Rooms looked lovely, newly refurbished –even the carpet smelled new or freshly cleaned- bright white linen and cheerful orange cushions. There is a little patio in front of the room. There is wireless internet (hotspot 50 zar for 12 hrs, once you have started, time keeps running)
And all that for only 450 or 499 single rate including breakfast (low season I believe).
Personnel were very friendly from the security guard to the people at reception and on the phone and restaurant staff.
In the morning we saw that the view was even more spectacular than at Orion. Although we did not have unobstructed views from our rooms 50 and 52, there are rooms on the property that have, so you can ask for those. They probably are more expensive though! Another bonus: besides an outdoor pool they have an indoor heated lap pool in the health centre (4 lanes, length approx 20 m I think, use of pool, Jacuzzi etc 20 zar for the day).
We liked it so much we stayed another day (could not stay longer, had to fly home), and had a great lunch at Coyote Café, next to Little Switzerland, where we encountered the most cheerful waitress of South Africa.
Dinner was in the restaurant at Little Switzerland: an excellent buffet, good quality and plenty of choice (and we are usually no fans of buffets).
In short, go here, it is a very pleasant and comfortable place, and excellent value for money!
Location: good for discovering the northern part of the Drakensberg. And there are several hikes/walks starting from LS.

Room Tip: Executive номер посимпатичней, чем Standard, а цена совсем чуть-чуть отличается.
