Staff were most friendly and helpful. I remember our turn downs...even baby got a chocolate placed on her pillow. The food was delicious and we were spoilt for choice. The staff are so passionate about what they do...all our requests were met timeously.

The view of the mountain was breath taking...my husband enjoyed hike.

I have no hesitation in recommending Champagne Castle for rest and rejuvenation...will feed your mind, body and soul.

Room Tip: Mountain view suites are incredible.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review, Thashe

It sounds like you had a wonderful stay with us. It's exactly what we want for each of our guests.

We are fortunate to be located in this World Heritage Site. Being this close to the mountains does give us the breath taking views you mention. I'm glad your husband was able to get onto the mountains. I'm certain he discovered that the views became increasingly beautiful the further he walked.

Thank you for staying with us, and we look forward to your next visit

We stayed here in March for a night and loved it. The views from our room over the mountains were great. Check in was quick and documents were all ready and waiting for us on arrival. The rooms are large and extremely comfortable. Lovely pillows! The dinner which was a buffet was lovely with a great choice of foods and the service by the waiters was great. Breakfast was also very good. There are numerous walks from the hotel. It was an extremely peaceful and relaxing stay and we were so sorry we only had one night there. Would definitely recommend staying here. By the way the idea of the sherry in the room was a lovely touch!

March is an incredible month in the Drakensberg. The greens of summer are all on display and the temperature isn't too warm.

I'm glad you had a fabulous stay with us, and we're also sorry you only had a one night stay.

Thank you for staying at Champagne Castle Hotel. We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit to the Drakensberg

This is theeee best spot ever!! if you want to relax, take a break or go hiking or do anything else in between really! It was my second time there, and I must say, this place is one of the best hotels I've stayed in. From the location, to the staff, to the food to the rooms! I can't even explain it! We will definitely be going back soon.

It sounds like you had a fantastic stay at Champagne Castle Hotel. We are fortunate to be located in this World Heritage Site, tucked up against some of the Drakensberg's most beautiful mountains. We're proud to be able to offer our guests access to the mountain directly from our property.

Thank you for staying with us. We look forward to your next visit to this part of the Drakensberg

I stayed for two days at the Champagner Castle and there is nothing to complain. Except the Hadedas which are quite noisy. But that's of course no complaint for the hotel. Food is plenty and quality is very good. Surrounding as expected and lots of activities to choose. I´ll be back...

Room Tip: Mountain view rooms are well worth it.

Being located in a World Heritage Site does mean we have a wide variety of wild animals and birds. Of course, as you discovered, some of them are noisier than others.

I'm glad you had a great stay with us, and we look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit to this part of the Drakensberg
