We stopped in Misty Mountain on the way to Krüger Park and really liked this place. We booked one of their family cottages which is a beautiful two storey stone cottage with breath-taking views! It inlcudes two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen and a nice sitting area with fire place. There is a very nice main building with a bar, sitting area and a very good restaurant.
The prices are B&B, and the breakfast buffet was the best we had on our entire trip. It even included some fresh croissants, which made my som happy!
Having stayed in some rather average places in this part of the country I can say that this place is very good value for money. Unfortunately, we didnt have time to explore the surroundings. There´s also a pool. We have to come back next time!

Not having been to the Sabie area for quite some time I was at a bit of a loss as to where to book my 8 guests and myself into when I was planning their tour to best take advantage of the spectacular Panorama route.

After searching around I selected the Misty Mountain Lodge as our first night out of Johannesburg a good distance to get away from the hustle of the city and to poise ones self to launch into the great outdoors of the Long Tom pass and other exquisite views and scenery in this area.

I could not have wished for a better destination.

We arrived late, after dark, having pre-ordered our meals by telephone en route with a really helpful reception desk, we checked in and immediately made our way to the dinning room at a pre-set table and the happy, smiling and helpful staff waiting to serve us the evening meal and a great meal it was too. Fresh and well prepared. There was a big Birthday party on the go in the restaurant with a lot of toasting and singing going on adding to the festive atmosphere.

Early to bed, early to rise and what a lovely surprise. Surrounded by beautiful gardens and huge, expansive mountain views on the edge of the escarpment above the Sabie river valley.

Breakfast was served on the sunlit verandah next to the free flow pool with superb views over valleys, never ending forests in the distant haze of the morning sun. Beautiful.

Misty Mountain has that charm, that hospitality, the sense of lightness and ease of making you the guest feel at ease. I will be returning time and time again. The real spirit of hospitality.....

Well done Misty Mountain and your staff.

A 5 star destination!!

Room Tip: Stgay a minimum of two nights it's worth it

We stayed for a night en route from the North of the Kruger to the Drakensberg. Well located on our route with a beautiful position high in the pass. The accommodation was clean and comfortable, though the odd door handle or towel rail needed the attention of a screwdriver. The restaurant was very good and we had a lovely evening meal. The outdoor eating area where we breakfasted was superb. We read reports about the road being close and noisy. Our experience was that traffic was very light between about 23.00 and 06.00 didn't disturb our light sleeper in the family any more than usual.

It was lovely and very peaceful. The food was good and the service excellent.
We will visit again and advise our friends to visit also. Maybe you can consider to change the single beds in the main bedrooms to normal double beds. The beddings needs an upgrade. Thank you.

Thanks for your comments and feedback– quite co-incidental! We have just placed our new linen order and all linen will be upgraded within the next 4 weeks. When visiting us again, please request a double bed so we will know to place you in a room with a double bed as opposed to twin beds.

We stayed in the family unit overlooking the fantastic view of the forest. The staff and owners were ridiculously friendly! The fires kept blazing, the view was wonderful, the bar well stocked and the food great! Just a short trip to sabie and surrounds! One of my favourite areas in SA! We had a wonderful time!
