The quietness and natural splendour of the area is awesome. The accomodation was clean and comfortable with everything you need for self catering. The resort has ample play place for kids and adults alike! We enjoyed our stay.

Absolutely LOVED your venue. It had the most amazing view of the Drakensberg, the rock pool was refreshing. Would suggest retiring the pony since she seems quite old, more bike size options (for smaller kids) and perhaps more items for sale at the canteen (ie milk). But other than that, we had an absolute amazing time!

We loved the location of Mountain Splendor, with its magnificent views of the Berg. The kids thought it was fantastic & rose around on their bikes all day. I think their could be more signs to advertize your location from the main road along with all the others. We will be back for Easter holidays. Thank you. David. Laurelle, Sam & Judah xxxx
