    Wonderful place!

    We arrived at the Nest and were completely blown away. Our room had its own patio looking at the Drakensberg Mountains. Sliding glass doors gave us that view all day. The room was spacious and modern with 2 sinks and a soaking tub. We could have used some bath salts! Meals were included in the price of the room and were served in the elegant formal dining room. The food was delicious. We missed the Sunday roast at lunch but got some leftovers as appetizers that night. Lovely grounds, very kid friendly and in a beautiful area called the Champagne Valley. We were so happy we stayed an extra night.

    Weekend break

    The reception staff were accommodating in letting me change rooms to be closer to the lodge as I was travelling solo. This is an all inclusive resort (excl drinks) but note that if you arrive early (before 1pm) they invite you to have lunch while you wait. This is good if you haven't had any lunch yet but that also means that you won't be able to have lunch on your check out day. As my check out day was a Sunday I would have preferred to not have lunch on check in day and rather on the Sunday (a carvery). This was only communicated to me after I'd had lunch and checked in. The dining room staff were very attentive and accommodating. My waitron Gugu was great! My room (9) was well appointed and modern but no separate bathroom - all in the 1 space. The balcony had lovely views of the 'Berg. This hotel is central to all activities in the berg. I enjoyed my 1 night stay.

    Can do better...

    The room wasn’t checked before we got there. Fireplace was not working, one of the heated blankets were not working. The dstv remote was for another room, the aircon remote needed batteries. It took 4-5hrs before someone assisted to get everything working, so we had to sit in a cold room until they got there.

    Three nights in the Drakensbergs

    Our room was a good size and clean with a comfortable bed, however the style and decor was a bit dated, the outlook did not provide any view to speak off and WiFi was only available in the hotel lounge. The highlight of staying here was the meals which were very good and with excellent service and friendly staff. The location of the Nest is ideal for visiting the area and it's site.
