"Enjoyed the stay. Accommodation was comfortable, clean and cosy. However, don't like the idea of paying for wood. Many other places in the berg provide wood without charge. Becomes restricting to enjoy the cosiness fully. Otherwise certainly would recommend to friends and family."

We enjoyed a very relaxing family get-away at Little Switzerland for a couple of days. Excellent service, clean and comfortable self-catering accommodation and amenities in and around the hotel are well maintained.
We were a little concerned about the health of the horses at the hotel - they seem to be malnourished (one in particular had protruding hipbones and clearly visible ribcage) and neglected. I do hope someone is concerning themselves with the welfare of these animals.
Apart from that, a wonderful stay. The restaurant serves excellent buffet meals, the kids are entertained all day long and the staff are friendly and accommodating all 'round.
We will surely be back.

"Little Switzerland is a beautifully situated resort with excellent facilities for all. Pony rides were a hit with the kids. Staff could be more friendly but I suppose such a large resort will inevitably be slightly impersonal."
"We were on holiday with the three of us and we were never there before, we liked the setting of the hotel, distances are always far in South Africa it was a long ride to other sightseeings in Drakensberg, like Giant Castle for example.
We have to compliment you with the wonderful food you wer..."
"The setting of our chalet was absolutely gorgeous, it felt as if we were alone in the mountains. The children enjoyed the pool, jungle gym and horses."
"We loved the views of the mountain. The chalet was however very standard and the 4-sleeper chalet we slept in was cramped (especially in the living area with the two pull-down beds).
The staff were very friendly and the restaurant food was very tasty with very good service.
"Ran the Mount aux Sources 50km challenge and unfortunately did not have time to explore the surroundings at the resort; maybe next time"
"We had a most enjoyable week here, the kids just had an absolute ball, relaxing for parents with very comfortable accomodation and good home cooked food."
"We were pleasantly surprised at the effort being put into making a stay at the Little Switzerland a family experience and the amount of effort that goes into entertainment for the little ones was greatly appreciated."
"The time we spend at Little Switzerland can best be described as restorative. The sheer magnificence of the mountains and the peace and quiet that surround the area force you to be still - to take time to glory in the wonders of nature and to surrender to a feeling of utter peace. Every aspect of ..."more
"We enjoyed the weekend very much. It was a pity we did not see any snow but maybe next time. The only negative comment that I can make is that the health centre prices is a bit high, what I could suggest is that in winter time maybe they can make the charges cheaper. Otherwise that place is awesome...."more

"I was very disappointed when I arrived at this resort. The pictures made it loo as if it was a 5 star, only to find out what an old styled type of accommodation it really was. Everything from bedding and towels to furniture and decor were completely old. Even the tv they had does not even exist in o..."more
"We stayed at Little Switzerland the past weekend. We felt so welcomed when we arrived. The staff is very friendly and professional. Loved the food and the service. Well done Little Switzerland. You made our stay a memorable one.
PS: I loved the Zebra:)"
"In our room, the bed was small, the TV ancient (which makes the nonsensical channel selection painful to watch) and the casual chairs nothing more than padded camp stools which give no back support. There is no ice in the bar fridge which means a trek to the main bar anyway and, in our room, the cur..."more

"I was not happy. The bedrooms was not up to standard, the furniture is out dated and need maintenance. The breakfast was delicious, but I feel that my stay was not a good value for money."
"Not only is the setting absolutely amazing, the staff go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable and memorable as possible. Our daughter fell ill on the weekend. When we went to the restaurant on the Saturday night, the staff prepared a special corner for her to lie down in. They brought h..."more
"I loved the atmosphere, the beautiful garden and the fact that it was child-friendly. The children enjoyed themselves and had a great time. We received good service from the staff and they were helpful. Our stay was fantastic."

"In general not a bad experience, a few small things that irked....
1. Some utensils (tin opener, braai thongs) in the unit really passed their 'use-by date'
2. Light in the top bedroom above the mirror not working
3. Cold tap in the shower had to be attended to by maintenance

Many lights in our chalet were not operational, sliding door difficult to open & under floor heating only worked in certain areas. Hous..."more

Thanks so much and we will be back!
"We were very glad to be back after 25 years. We had such a nice time."
"We loved the views from the chalets - but the layout of the chalet can be improved upon:
1. HUGE (very wide) 'king size' bed in upstairs bedroom - resulting in the fitted sheet not 'fitting' - also due to the width of the bed, the one side had to do without a bedside / reading lamp - two 3/..."
"We spent five wonderful days at Little Switzerland. The view from our room was spectacular. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the meals were absolutely amazing. We will definitely be back there for more of the same!

"Everything was excellent during my stay here. I also really enjoyed the surroundings."
"We did not received a good reception even though the stay was fine. There was such an issue with the booking made in this one's name then that one's name. The administration should be more orderly and they should have been prepared for our arrival.

"Over the weekend of 28 & 29 March we had a short weekend break-away to LS. The location of this resort is very convenient and the views are breath-taking. We felt that it was good value for money but that attention can be given to mattresses and in the quality of service in the restaurant.
"Very clean and neat. The food was from top class and all the staff were helpful and friendly.The strawberries and cream surprise on Valentines day was a surprise. Thank you. Next time I will stay longer."
"I had a good stay. They had good facilities. The rooms were clean and comfortable. I will recommend them to others. "

"Lovely establishment, facilities were good, staff very helpful and friendly.
Rooms need an up grade not very cosy and comfortable with regards to furniture beds and chairs. Such a pity about the roads really the biggest down fall of the holiday."

I clearly recall the weather as grey and cold, but the stay was warm and hospitable. Little Switzerland lived in our memories as a charming and dignified home from home. We remember the dining-hall with fine foods, warm fires ..."
"Chalets are comfortable but basic, and could do with a bit of an upgrade.
