It was our first visit to mount sheba. Our first room had a lot of damp and after our first night we asked to be moved to another room which request was accommodated. Overall it was a pleasant stay. The servers however require a lot of training. The dining room was filled with smoke each night due to a faulty...

You might struggle to find friendlier staff! From the moment you walk in you feel welcome, all the staff are so accommodating, nothing is too much to ask. We had a small issue on the first morning and within minutes the general manager sorted us out. I would say this is not a child friendly place, this is more like...

We spent just two nights in cottage 1 at Mount Sheba. It was well decorated, plush and comfortable and the wonderful housekeeper was the same one we recognised from our stay 10 years ago! We had dinner in the hotel restaurant and it was excellent sitting by a roaring fire on a chilly night. Four courses were all excellent and...

My wife and I spent two very pleasant days in one of the chalets at this resort. Everything was perfect. Although it was a quiet weekend after the holidays with more staff than guests around, nothing was too much trouble for the staff The chalet was superbly furnished and very modern and had all the kitchen equipment one would need...

If you really want to get away from it all in safety, there is no better place than the exotic Mount Sheba with its excellent staff, manager and lay-out. There are about 10 walking-routes, (some quite taxing, be warned) while the dinner and breakfast add value for money. Each unit has a fire place, often two, as it gets rather...

The employees, from reception to the cleaners, are all exceptionally friendly and willing to assist. The dinners are exceptional being a 4-course with a selection in each of the courses. Cost of the dinners are included in the rate. Rooms are comfortable, clean but not exceptional. The fire place is terrific and makes for a lovely cosy stay. Road to...

Don't attempt the access road with a vehicle without high ground clearance after the rains (or perhaps at all). The dirt portion is not that long, probably 12-13 kms, but you do not want to use your sports car there. The chalet we stayed in for a long weekend stay was larger than the norm for this type of timeshare...

We were disappointed in the hotel accommodations. The chalets or cottages as they are called look lovely but the same cannot be said of the hotel which is unattractively painted to look like a cell block in a prison. A very gloomy setting. In the hotel room itself, the lighting is totally inadequate. I had to strain to find my...
