About Ondini Guest House & Cottage

Ondini is a privately owned 20-acre property in the Champagne Valley, located high in the foothills of Champagne Castle in the Central Drakensberg, 30km from Winterton and 45km from Estcourt. The house and cottage both have spectacular mountain and surrounding valley views.

Ondini comprises a double storey guest house which sleeps up to 10 people, and an adjacent open-plan cottage which sleeps 2-4 people. Ondini is generally rented out as a complete unit to a single large group (max 14). In addition, there is a mini conference centre on the property, which makes Ondini an ideal venue for a workshop or team-building weekend away.


Upstairs in the main guest house there is a large double / twin bedroom with optional extra single bed and en suite bathroom, two smaller double / twin bedrooms, another small single bedroom and a twin attic bedroom, with two more bathrooms with showers, and downstairs there is a separate dining room, fully-equipped modern kitchen and a comfortable lounge with fireplace, television (DSTV) and a sound system with a CD player.

Adjacent to the main guest house is "Ondini Cottage", which comprises an open plan double / twin bedroom, with optional extra single bed, a cosy lounge area, and a kitchen / dining area. The bathroom also has a separate shower.


Bedding and towels are provided and all rooms are fully serviced. There is a laundry service available on request, and extra mattresses can also be provided if needed.

The property has a ‘fun’ tennis court as well as braai facilities. There are many scenic walks accessible directly from the property which also boasts its own indigenous forest with laid out pathways. There is also ample safe parking on site.


Two large stables have been converted into a modern conference / training centre with 6 long desks and 12 chairs, and an adjoining dining area with a solid railway sleeper wooden dining-room table seating 14. Both rooms have French doors opening onto a large patio with panoramic mountain views.
