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...

- fantastic hosts - real home from home hospitality/ spotless comfortable room. The property is magnificent - a real garden of Eden. Great attention to detail. The dogs are part of the experience. I wished we could have stayed longer.

Stayed for one night on the way to the coast from Joburg. The room was well designed, modern, clean and reasonably priced. A full cooked breakfast was also provided in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Really can't ask for more and would highly recommend.

the staff treated clients in a bad manner. also they tried to overcharge us, i.e. a baby at the age of 2 years they asked to charge half of the adults although we booked a family room, and the baby was sleeping with mum.

Establishment has everything traveler would like to have access to whilst staying over for few days. The hosts, especially Linda made it priority to ensure breakfasts were exactly way you like it. Also being very close to the tourist attractions, close to majestic Drakensberg helps a lot.

I tried calling, emailing and texting for 3 days prior to my arrival before the call was finally answered. The reason for the absence was, 'We are hectic.' No apology. On arrival we waited at the gate for 15 minutes, calling the land line and cell number, and hooting before we were let in. I pre-arranged a 1-course meal, received...

We had a pleasant stay in 'Hope' cottage. The cottage was well equipped, comfortable and very clean. We preferred to use the fan which was very effective rather than the air-conditioner. As we left early the following morning, we did not stay for breakfast. This establishment is ideal for a stop-over as it is conveniently situated just off the R74....
