We have been going to the Cavern for many years, and as usual, when we checked in to the hotel, we found only improvements. The security at the only access gate to the hotel was firm but friendly. If you are not checking into the hotel as a guest, then i don't think you'll get on to the grounds at all. Great for the guests' piece of mind. We had the most interesting weekend with the guides and experts on fauna and flora - Sally and David Johnson - every time we met with them there was just so much to learn!
As usual the room was wonderful, clean and everything in the room worked!! The meals are superb, and dining room staff quiet and friendly. The walks were just great. Even if the Drakensberg was dry and thirsty - there is a special beauty that can only been seen in the Berg.
We'll definitely be back !!!!
