I visited the Drakensberg Mountain Retreat from Sunday 8th December until Thursday 12th December 2013. It is a magnificent property with stunning views all-round. The location is absolutely perfect as it in close proximity to many attractions and in easy reach of the Golden Gate National Park and Clarens. I would like to congratulate the General Manager - Sean Kruger on doing a sterling job for DMR, he is a great asset to this establishment. I found him to be extremely knowledgeable on the area and he was friendly and courteous at all times. The staff all respect him and think very highly of him. Sean ensured that we were comfortable and he made us feel so at home. I have stayed at many establishments world-wide and have never experienced such great hospitality and efficiency from the management. I will certainly be back! Thank you Sean and staff for making our stay so awesome.
