This was our last stay before heading back to the US after a week of travelling around. Winterton Country Lodge was clean, comfortable and quiet! We were given a choice of rooms since it was slow and selected a room looking out on the Pecan Grove. We almost had an overnight guest in the resident cat, but she was too...

We were a family of six staying in three rooms and the location was perfect for us as a stopover on our road trip. We were very impressed with the decor and layout of the rooms and the service was excellent. But the big surprise was the superior quality of the dinner in the dining room. It was one of...

On arrival we were shown our rooms and advised where in the area to have dinner. We could not have any drinks at the bar area as everybody was at a wedding. The next morning I requested additional pillows as the existing two pillows per person was paper thin. We were again out for the entire day having late lunch...

On a scale from one to ten, we would give the chef in the kitchen the fulll score of 10. Great menu, great cooking. Property is nice, the service is good and is well positioned near Spioenkop reserve and Drakensbergen.

We only stayed for two nights on an out of season week-end.The room was excellent, clean, well furnished and serviced, even on Sunday. Staff were helpful with suggestions about attractions in the area. Our evening meal was delicious, 4 courses, but pricey at R250.00pp. The Lodge is about 2 kms from the small town of Winterton and is surrounded by...

Situated just outside Winterton - not many restaurants that stay open after 5 or 6 though! Warm welcome from staff, but we were not told about option of ordering evening meal, which would have been useful. Room was in a very shady corner which in the height of summer might be appreciate, but we thought it was a bit dark...

Evening meal which was advertised as being available on request was not provided. The option of eating out in Winterton or much further afield was very unattractive. No staff in evidence when we returned from our meal in Winterton, the place felt deserted and vulnerable.

This little gem is in the heart of Drakensberg and is incredibly cosy...lovely staff who really care about their guests...daily breakfast was amazing. Its close to all activities like hot air ballooning, zip lining and wine tasting. The only thing I had an issue with was the amount of bugs but one has to expect and accept these beautiful creatures...
