We spent our honeymoon there as we both love the tranquillity of the berg and the many hikes it offers. Ardmore for us is the best place for that. Well connected, really great food, very friendly staff. Mariska and joe are so helpful and knowledgeable. We will definitely definitely return...

Friendly staff. Lot of space. Kids enjoyed swimming pool. Close to the hiking tracks. Lot of domestic animals around - horses, sheeps, goats, friendly dogs.. :) Kids loved it. Whirlpool in the bathroom as bonus.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ardmore Guest Farm is situated in the heart of the scenic Champagne Valley in the central Drakensberg mountain range. Here you can enjoy stunning views of the three highest peaks in South Africa; Mafadi (highest peak at 3450m), Injisuti Dome (3410m) and the majestic Champagne Castle (3377m) which are all situated within the World Heritage site. We are surrounded by breathtaking views and fantastic opportunities for hiking and exploring the local area. We also have our won Ardmore Museum and art gallery, and the African Loom weaving centre for those who are interested in local crafts and artwork. We provide comfortable farm style accommodation, with dinner and breakfast included. We have a total of 18 units, situated either in a traditional thatch rondawel or in one of our beautiful mountain facing cottages or garden rooms. All rooms are en-suite with private fireplaces and free firewood. Wake up to a traditional farmhouse breakfast (full english) overlooking Ardmore's extensive gardens. Relax in our pub with a cold drink before joining us for a relaxed four course lantern lit dinner with complimentary wine served in our yellow wood dining room. ... more   less
