      Magnificent scenery”
      This was my first visit since the 1980s and it is still a pleasure to be at the Drakensberg Gardens. The facilities are fine and the dining areas vary according to your style and mood as well as a good choice of inexpensive bars. There is plenty to do during the evening. Daytime invites walking amongst the magnificent scenery with easy, or more challenging walks, and of course golf and all the other activities offered.

      A small paradise on wonderful surroundings”
      A breathtaking oasis of comfort in a breathtaking scenery. Nice, clean, comfortable and well equipped rooms. I appreciated · the warm duvet and · the heater provided, · electricity sockets for European, British and South African plugs, · friendly and helpful staff, · the excellent (Bergview) restaurant (delicious food, altough a bit on the pricey side and the helpings on the smallish side) I would have been happier · if the shower was separate from the bath tub · if the small shampoo bottle provided was not half empty. · if the fish cakes at the breakfast buffet would be firmer and taste a bit like fish Nevertheless I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. I will definitely recommend the hotel to others. I would love to stay there again one day.

      very disappointed ”
      breakfast. security guard.
      I would like to bring to your attention that I was highly disappointed with my stay.    To start of the receptionist has a bad attitude and was extremely rude to two youngsters when they inquired about one of the activities.  Altho they children they aught to be treated with respect as they are guests.  I did an online booking the day before and yet they were unaware of my arrival.    I proceeded to order a pizza for takeaway at 16.30 from the Bistro requesting it to be ready for pick up at 17.30. I must note that when I entered the Bistro there were no one in FOH to assist. I called down the little passage next to the kitchen for someone.  As I arrived at 17.30 for pick up they haven't even started the pizza. I sat down patiently waiting. I was disgusted with the condition and cleanliness of the Bistro. The chairs upholstery is filthy and one hardly wants to sit down on it. They staff were in the front this time and it sounded like a carnaval with the noise they were making. There is no background music to even musk the Chitter chatter. Needles to say that when I received my pizza it was the worst I have ever had. When I ordered I specifically asked the waiter if they have fresh avo. He replied, avocado? Yes. ...sadly this was an avo pulp on the pizza squared in 4 random piles the size of a teaspoon.    I really think attention should be given to the food and customer service.  At least the room was neat and clean.    Very dissatisfied guest

      The staff were friendly and professional. On the website it stated that wifi was free, at the hotel this was declared false info and was asked to pay R20 per hour! When i paid online, the booking fee incl hotel taxes and service charge but at upon checkout at the hotel was told its excluded. I refused to pay!

      breakfast, location
      Two adults, we needed 2 keys. We got the second key only after lengthy (and painful) discussions. The staff did not seem to understand that two adults need to keys. The cleaning lady then did not come to our room and did not clean the room. There was no hot water on day 1. There is no wifi, except at one spot. Wifi is not free: need to queue at the reception and buy a voucher. Clearly not at the level of European standards. Avoid avoid avoid! The only good thing is the location.

      Lots for the kids to do on their own, family mountain bike rides, beautiful scenic surroundings
      Our stay was very relaxing. Kids had a wonderful time riding bikes, playing with rabbits and swimming in the pools. There is so much to do at this resort from hiking, mountain bike riding, swimming and there is no need to get into your car until you leave. Excellent family holiday which was great value for money

      Run-down hotel...”
      the location
      The Hotel is run down and dirty. The pools looked like they haven't been maintained forever. The water was dirty and not inviting at all. The rooms were smelly and need to be renovated. The food in the bistro was not very good. Dinner and breakfast were OK and the chefs were really friendly. This hotel is far away from being a spa or golf hotel...the location is nice though.
