Arrived on friday night and we were placed in units called viewpoint which were totally unacceptable, old and door didnt seal properly. No heaters, had to call reception to request and the ones they did bring didnt work. Hot water didnt work. Peeling paint in the restaurant and dirty floors. Complained the next day and we moved to 'cypress' units which were 10 times better with aircon/ heated rooms. Would go again based on setting however they need to get their act together as the pictures on the site versus reality do differ.

I had a wonderful experience in the natural environment of the "Mountain Haven", with a number of holiday activities that I like (tennis, golf, horse rides, etc). My stay was cut short though, due to an emergency that I had to rush to, so I look forward to my next visit with high anticipation.

We had the best time at the Drakensberg Gardens resort. Was so nice to have a little veranda from our room, a private outdoor space to ourselves to read and enjoy the mountain views. The buffet meals were great and the staff throughout the resort were exceptional.

My Wife and I had a wonderful time at Fairways and I would recommend that anyone spend as much time there as you can afford. Take golf clubs, hiking boots, books and even at a push and only if you have to, the kids.
