After staying in the hotel for 2 years running, we decided to try the self catering. We loved it! If you don’t mind cooking for yourself, I can highly recommend it. The cottages are large and clean and it has everything you need. They overlook the most amazing view. We can’t wait to return! Special thanks to Khaya who took my daughter on a horse ride. He was very friendly and has an obvious passion for the animals. Well done!

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

Our self-catering Chalets are extremely popular, for all of the reasons you mention. I'm so glad you tried them out. They do have incredible views of the mountains, as you pointed out.

I have passed your feedback on to Khaya.

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

The most majestic setting in the mountains, we try and visit every year for the past 36 years.
If you are a hiker the walks are superb, if you want just to rest nothing is better than sitting by the pool/room/lounge/bar/veranda and looking at the beautiful view.
Rooms are spacious and comfortable.
The food is superb !!!

Room Tip: ask for a room with a mountain view preferably a front row

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.

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
