Review by Susan (Johannesburg)

My daughter & I stayed for 4 nights and had a wonderful time. Beautiful surrounds and the accommodation was perfect, it had everything we needed. We really appreciated the comfortable beds with electric blankets at the end of a wonderful day of exploring & sightseeing. Thank you.

Review by Stan And Tilly Webster (South Africa)

If you want to get away from the madding crowd, Old Beacon Hill is the perfect place to be. The accommodation is spacious and clean and has everything that one needs. Old Beacon Hill is perfectly situated for quick access to the N3 and the R103 allowing you to explore both the "Battlefields" and the "Drakensberg Mountains." The hosts, Ed and Adele, know how to be available and yet not intrusive. We look forward to our next stay there.

Review by Christine Terblanche (SA)

Very impressed with the lovely self-catering log cabin we stayed in for one night over the weekend. Everything was supplied, even fresh milk in the fridge! Lovely linen and thick towels as well as plenty of hot water. Ed was welcoming and most hospitable.

Review by Gill Harrold (United Kingdom)

High quality accommodation with lovely furnishings. Very well situated for the Drakensberg National Parks. Only 15 minutes drive from nearest decent supermarket. Owners on site for help and information but privacy respected.

Review by Hendrik Oosthuizen (South Africa)

We arrived at Old Beacon Hill at around 10:40 pm and were greeted with a friendly smile despite the time. The cabin is stylishly furnished with soft bedding. Old Beacon Hill even provided tea, coffee and milk which was a welcome surprise after the long trip. I would recommend this establishment to all my friends and family. Well done!

Review by Andre Landman (Johannesberg)

We wanted idyllic, tranquil and peaceful - and that's just what we experienced at Old Beacon Hill. Accommodation lacked nothing and Ed and Adele were helpful and unobtrusive. Recommended to the weary seeking a bit of solace.
