“beautiful hotel just next to Royal Natal Park”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

We had a lovely stay at the hotel. It is especially nice if you had a long walk in the Royal Natal Park to get back to such a welcoming place just around the corner of the park (so no long drives involved). Loved the views, the spacious and nicely furbished rooms and the friendly staff. The food was very good.
The hotel could go the extra mile by being a bit more generous towards its guests; e.g. there was no water provided in the rooms and the drinks at dinner had to be paid extra. It might not look like a big deal but the sum of these little details make the difference in hospitality. For the rates you pay, I think those things could be expected. But overall, we enjoyed the stay very much!

The weekend between 02 - 04 November 2012, my family and I visisted Orion Mont-Aux-Sources Hotel. We were welcomed with friendly security and staff.

We stayed at Chalet 1, and it's beautiful inside and out. Inside it was clean, they even put an extra bed in the chalet for my daughter. The housekeeping staff brought us clean dry towels the following day without us even asking for it. The rest of the staff including management We had an amazing time with beautiful sunrises and sunsets, peace and quiet just to unwind and relax.

I will definately recommend Orion-Mont-Aux-Sources Hotel to my friends and we will go and visit again. Thanks to all the friendly staff and management for a wonderful weekend.

Room Tip: For families, the chalets are a good choice. There is tennis, basketball, volleyball, chess and a ju...

The accomodation is amazing, it's minimalist and modern and clean. The exterior is deceiving and doesn't at all give you the idea of what's inside. The staff are really friendly and helpful, and very efficient. The food is probably amongst the best that I've ever had and caters for everyone's taste. I really really love this place, and can't wait to go back.

I spent a two night weekend at Mont Aux Source. A lot of effort has gone into refurbishing this hotel with bold modern furniture and colours. The hotel room was spacious, huge screen TV, nice beds and furniture, modern couches, big bathroom with large shower and lots of cupboard space. This place has potential, but is let down by the staff, from the slow check in, moving rooms 3 times (from a smelly smoking room, to find one with twin beds), to the staff mowing the grass right outside our room at 8:30 on sunday morning! So much for a relaxing weekend! The biggest letdown is the cleaning crew, who superficially clean (a dead spider remained in my bathroom for 2 days). The location is nice, but with not a lot to do nearby unless you are into action sports. Try get a room with a balcony downstairs, the opens into the gardens. The food was fine (we were on a full board package).

My husband and I spent one night at the Orion Mont-Aux-Sources Hotel on our way to Johannesburg from St. Lucia. After a 10 hour drive, we stopped at the Cavern Hotel for the night and were told we could have a room that was under construction. The room was dark and old with scaffolding on the balcony. I was shocked they would even offer it to paying customers. We left and went to the Orion where we greeted by a very friendly reception and shown a BEAUTIFUL room and bath. After our long drive, we were thrilled to be able to stay in a comfortable, clean room and have a most wonderful meal. We felt really pampered! I highly recommend these accommodations, they have a wonderful view of the Drakensberg Mountains and are closer to the park for hiking.

This lovely hotel with very friendly staff is located on the doorstep of the Royal Natal National Park which is a world heritage site of amazing natural beauty. There are many hikes which one can do in the area, from the gentle meandering walks to the much more difficult and demanding climbs. There is something to suit everyone. The hotel has a full range of activities such as tennis, bowling green, volleyball, swimming and much more. Dinner and breakfasts consist of a buffet with a large selection to choose from. I would definitely recommend the Mont Aux Sources and I will certainly be returning.

Room Tip: Ask for a room closer to the reception area. The views are better.

My family and I spent a wonderful weekend at Orion Mont-Aux-Sources! Friendly staff, beautiful surroundings, good food. Not that far to travel. Caters for families and think their conference facilities will also be good. Our room was recently renovated, modern and stunning!
