    Oh! The view from our unit. Spectacular with lighting on the rock during the night. Fully equipped Kitchen with Braai facilities. Clean and neat. We loved the stay and the horses came to visit. Just keep a lookout for the Baboons.

    this is one for the bucket list. The hotel is situated right across part of the Drakensberg range. The self catering was really good and very comfortable. Service was very good; Very safe and well situated to go on hike without having to drive
