About
Description
Champagne Castle Hotel is nestled below the second highest peak in South Africa, Champagne Castle (3377m), part of the main escarpment within the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg mountain range, the highest More mountain range in South Africa. Due to its diversity of plant, bird and insect life and the richest collection of San rock paintings in Africa, it has been declared a Mixed World Heritage Site. For visual impact, recreational variety and luxurious splendour, Champagne Castle Hotel is pretty close to being an ultimate experience. Your stay will be characterised by the proximity you gain to the most dramatic and immediate views of the Drakensberg Escarpment and the 'Barrier of Spears'. Whether you walk or hike, trout fish or horse ride, play golf or tennis, swim or bowl, everything here has been configured to embrace this unparalleled setting. Less

Hi Traveldeon We certainly are not satisfied with the smoke that has recently been experienced in the lounge. We are working to fix it urgently. Thank you for taking the time to ask this.

There is one block (a new one) that has inter-leading rooms. It's the 300's block if you ask while you're doing your reservation. My favourite rooms in the hotel
