My husband and I had the absolute pleasure to celebrate his birthday on Sunday, 21 May 2017 at Little Switzerland (lunch). The roaring fireplace at reception added to the warm welcome we received. I arranged telephonically beforehand with the friendly D-nika to have a table set up (which was beautifully done inside the restaurant) but on our arrival we decided...

Friendly efficient service from the friendly security at the entrance to front desk, house keeping, waiters etc. Fabulous self-catering accommodation with outstanding views and quietness at night. Fall out of bed and step into nature. Walking, horseback, quads, kids entertainment - something for everyone. Compliments to the chef for outstanding meals. Loved the simplicity with which Little Switzerland provides a...

The buffet at the hotel was good however the staff was not cooperative or friendly. We couldnt wait to leave. Some staff members were arrogant to say the least! In the hospitality industry, one must be friendly and cooperative to people of all walks of life.

Great views, clean, spacious hotel rooms. Great food and super friendly staff. Lots of activities for old and young and a lot of points of interest in the vicinity. Just think that they are overpriced, placing it or if reach for the average salary earner. Self - catering chalets probably a cheaper option

I spent the weekend in the Drakensberg with my folks, and Little Switzerland has all the charm, scenery and adventure it promises. The atmosphere is incredibly peaceful, with many activities available for those who stay within the resort during the day. I especially enjoyed the trails and loved seeing the dog Charlie walking about. Would definitely come back to stay...

We had a great weekend away at Little Switzerland. We had booked alternate accommodation and was not happy. We called Little Switzerland they gave us a great rate and were extremely helpful given that we would arrive within the next 30 mins. The chalet was in pristine condition and the cot we had requested had already been placed in the...
