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.

Disappointed with their attitude toward us. It is over priced and not very obliging. Rooms are modern, clean and well equipped. Situated in a beautiful spot of the Central Drakensberg with lovely easy walks
