What a stunning location, we stayed in the honeymoon suite which had breathtaking views of the amphitheatre and horses and zebra that live on the property. We didn't feel the need to leave Little Switzerland to further explore the area as everything we needed was at our fingertips. The chef is really talented, everything from seafood to salads to steak to pasta & vegetables were deliciously cooked

Our chalet was neat and very clean. The cleaning lady was very efficient. The restaurant is above average, and the garden immaculate. All staff members that we encountered were friendly and helpful. In terms of fittings and furniture the chalets are somewhat inferior to those found at most other resorts in the area. The chalets need an interior revamp.

We had an awesome stay at Little Switzerland. The staff went out of their way at every turn to make sure everything operated smoothly. The chef should be commended as dinner and lunch was amazing. We did breakfast and one evening braai in our chalet and the kitchen was very well equipped. The unit was serviced efficiently and spotlessly cleaned. And lastly all the activities we booked for our children was presented perfectly and exactly on time. We will definitely be returning in future.

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.
