Clean rooms, lovely clubhouse, warm staff and the owners are easy going. I fell in love with Lea and Ben, their two dogs who followed us around the golf course and jumped on the golf cart with us. They were such a delight! Room One, not the most ideal room if you are light sensitive as there is a security light that shines directly into the room. It would be nice if the beds were bigger ie. Queen size. Otherwise, it was a lovely stay and we will definitely be back with more golfing friends in tow....

What a surprise to find a the only Mountain Links Golf Course in the WORLD tucked away high on the top of a mountain in Schoemanskloof.... a stunning venue with the building built from surrounding rock with views one could only dream about.  The rooms are beautiful, comfortable and with all the amenities one could wish to have to make one's stay memorable.  The owners of this glorious place are very hospitable and gave us personalised attention.  A definite return to this jewel in the mountains! Tranquil, quiet, relaxing!

It was a lovely 4 days at Drakenzicht. Our hosts were most gracious and our children enjoyed playing with their boys. Cycling is probably not for the novice as the terrain is hilly and rocky. The golf course is a challenge. Take lots of balls. Accomodation was clean and adequate. We spent little time indoors but do take something to read as there are lots of "downtime."
