I had been staying at Ardmore for the last 3 days. Very good food and service from all the staff. I will definitely come back. Had been here 3 months ago and there are big improvements in most departments. Keep it up guys!

These were nice cottages in close proximity of Drakensbergen (Giant's Castle Game Reserve). For non-hikers there were also several alternatives that the staff was more than happy to talk about. The food was okay but not great (for both breakfast and dinner). We were, however, always seated at a less atmospheric table in a place wehre everyone always needed to...

Hi There Thank you for your comments, we are constantly making improvements. We have just started a new chef and we are now getting great comments from our guest about our food, and we have sorted out our service too so that is also an improvement. The dinning room is marked for extensions in the next few month. Sorry about...

We had a one night stop over at Ardmore whilst travelling to the Southern Drakensberg. The accommodation was good with a farm-like feel to it. Ardmore is located close to many other attractions in the Central Drakensberg and a great location for a family holiday.

This is a lovely family run guest farm with wide open spaces and a relaxed feel! The rooms are comfy and had just been redone before our stay. There is an awesome sunken bath tub in the bathroom with jets that turn it into a jacuzzi! The food is hearty (just watch out for the aromat/msg) and there is a...

We stayed a couple of nights at the Ardmore guest farm and we had a great time. The beds are good, and you have your own fireplace in the cottage (which is definitely needed if the temperature drops at night!). Lovely friendly staff who are ready to help out with anything. Dinner was very nice, you have a 3 course...

Had a great stay in the Drakensberg at Ardmore! Very cosy, farm-like feel and the staff is incredibly friendly. Food was great as they served a three course every night. Amazing for a few nights stay because there is so much to do in the area!!!

My family and I spent two wonderful nights in the mountain facing chalets. I cannot begin to explain what a great time we had.

Hi Sandy Many thanks for the wonderful review!!

We spent two nights in this lovely location. We felt like we were in a house of our own as the two floor chalet we stayed in was huge with a lovely large soaker tub and outdoor decks on both floors. The chalets are a little on the old and dated side but so spacious and private. The grounds are...

Ardmore Guest Farm is situated in the heart of the scenic Champagne Valley in the central Drakensberg mountain range. Here you can enjoy stunning views of the three highest peaks in South Africa - Mafadi (highest peak at 3450m), Injisuti Dome (3410m) and the majestic Champagne Castle (3377m) which are all situated within the World Heritage site. We are surrounded by breathtaking views and fantastic opportunities for hiking and exploring the local area. We also have our won Ardmore Museum and art gallery, and the African Loom weaving centre for those who are interested in local crafts and artwork. We provide comfortable farm style accommodation, with dinner and breakfast included. We have a total of 18 units, situated either in a traditional thatch rondawel or in one of our beautiful mountain facing cottages or garden rooms. All rooms are en-suite with private fireplaces and free firewood. Wake up to a traditional farmhouse breakfast (full English) overlooking Ardmore's extensive gardens. Relax in our pub with a cold drink before joining us for a relaxed four course lantern lit dinner with complimentary wine served in our yellow wood dining room. ... more   less
