We had 4 nights and I wish it had been longer. It's a long drive to get there from anywhere at the end of the road in the middle of the drakensberg mountains. The room was spacious with thatched roof and nice patio area with table and chairs. Room came with small safe, hairdryer,tv and refrigerator. Walls were a bit thin though - we knew when the room next door had the tv on. Plenty of food and choice good too. We walked on our own rather than the organized groups and in the main found the trails easy to find. The scenery is breathtaking. Staff were friendly but not very proactive. Communal areas were relaxed and comfortable with a good selection of books. Great place to relax
