Really friendly staff all round. Privacy is impacted in the chalets due to the fact that they are wooden and you have shared neighbours. The amenities, however, were fantastic. The legendary rock pool is stunning and it has the best adventure golf course (putt-putt) of any resort we have ever visited. The food at the hotel restaurant was absolutely fantastic...

We stayed only one night as our intention was to check out the Southern Drakensberg. The area is simply stunning and we will be back. Bushmans Nek is a resort style hotel geared mostly to families, so not really our cup of tea, but our room was generously sized, clean and comfortable and the staff were great. Ticked all the...

The view is amazing, the walks and rivers are lovely, hotel amenities are good. We booked with timeshare and so had a log cabin. The log cabins are small, very tired and run down - holes in the carpet, old furnishings. Would be nice to have a fan in the cabin as it got quite warm in the afternoon. Fortunately...

Bushmans Nek is in the most breathtaking location we have ever seen. It is only reached by a horrifically rutted dirt road in desperate need of repair, and the resort would be kind to mention the need of a 4X4 to get there. Once there, the view makes it worth it. However, the staff seem only vaguely interested in serving,...

Dear Mr Lewis Thank you for your valued input when reviewing our beautiful resort. Management and staff would like to apologise for your disappointing experience.

We stayed at Bushmans Nek with two kids (4, 6) and we all had great fun. The pool area is spectacular, Entertainment, Food, Walks, Horse Riding (at Stud Farm nearby) - all was a great fun for all of us. Rooms are spacious, not the latest in interiours, but all clean and nice.

Everything was excellent: the hotel, the meals the leisure activities. We had a great ride in the Drakensberg mountains with horses from the farm next door, arranged by the Hotel, also enjoyed the rock pool and were pampered at the Spa - I can only recommend it.

Recently stayed at Bushman's Neck in the Southern Berg for 5 days after not having been there for some 25 years. On our first visit we stayed in one of the timber chalets and I remember them as grubby and creaky and never had a great desire to return. This was different.
