We chose Ardmore Guest Farm as we wanted peace and tranquility and that is certainly what we got together with the most wonderful views. We also required pet friendly accommodation and Ardmore provided that as well. The staff were more than helpful and went out of their way to make our stay pleasant, nothing was too much trouble for them....

The trip was mainly to get away from Durban and all the traffic and fireworks. We found peace, tranquility, great accommodation, good food and my dogs loved the place. It is a working farm with nearby forests and dams which write great to walk our dogs. The staff are very helpful and friendly.

Ardmore has everything that you can expect from a B&B with the additional of exceptional service for staff members. It is central to all activities in the central Drakensberg area and hence is very convenient. We would very much recommend this as a place of stay if you are looking for a low hassle holiday.

We stayed here for one night, and it was very enjoyable. We had a garden-facing cottage, which was beautiful and clean. The location itself is amazing, and has a lot of surrounding activities. We took a walk around the premises, and it was great to see the animals and the farm in general. The staff were very polite and friendly....

Enjoyed our stay at the farm lodge. Only 25 minute drive to the mounrains for walking...beautiful. Very attentive service, maybe too attentive at mealtimes. Lovely to chat to other guests from around the world.
