It was fine.

It is on a farm with a lot of animals.

Wonderfully friendly people, in a real farm setting.

We enjoyed our stay. It was a real farmhouse experience with breakfast and dinner included in our package. We enjoyed walking around the farm in the early evening and seeing the miniature horses and the goats and the pig. The unit we stayed in was rustic but just what we expected on a farm. That evening we sat on the lawn and enjoyed a sundowner. It would have been nice to have seen the mountains but there was a row of trees that were inconveniently in the way (on a neighbouring farm) but apparently, a little walk would have taken us to a viewing spot. The best thing was that everyone was so welcoming and warm. We enjoyed our meal that night (the soup was delicious!).

Dit was heerlik rustig.

Dit was lekker om net aan te sit vir etes wat heerlik voorberei is.

This is a family friendly establishment, best with small children.

The room was generously spacious and well appointed with good quality linen and furniture. The farming countryside was pretty and the farm animals would be inviting to families with small children.

Vir dit wat ons betaal het was dit ondergemiddeld.

Ardmore sal vir seker meer aandag aan instandhouding en huishouding moet gee! Genoemde regverdig nie die prys as ons dit vergelyk met ander plekke waar ons hier in die Drakensberge tuisgaan nie. Hul gasvryheid en kos kan ons egter nie oor kla nie. Ons sal vir seker nie familie of vriende na hul toe verwys nie.

For what we paid it was below average.

Ardmore will definitely need to pay more attention to maintenance and housekeeping! The aforementioned does not justify the price when we compare it to other places where we stay here in the Drakensberg. However, we cannot complain about their hospitality and food. We will certainly not refer family or friends to them.

Dit voel of jy vir vriende gaan kuier.

Dit is 'n lekker sentrale plekkie om te bly, naby aan alles wat interessant is. Die personeel is baie vriendelik, en ek wil veral vir Neil en die twee mense by ontvangs baie dankie se hulle was vreeslik vriendelik en baie behulpsaam. Ek sal julle plekkie beslis aanbeveel vir vriende. Volgende keer gaan ons langer bly.

It feels like you are visiting friends.

It's a nice central place to stay, close to everything interesting. The staff are very friendly, and I especially want to say a big thank you to Neil and the two people at reception, they were extremely friendly and very helpful. I will definitely recommend your place to friends. Next time we will stay longer.

Perfectly positioned to enjoy the best of the Drakensberg.

The chalets are spacious, warm and perfectly comfortable. The food was homely, not inspired, but satisfactory.

Baie lekker.

Ongelukkig het die droogte sy tol geëis wat die natuurskoon aanbetref. Verblyf was baie rustig en fasiliteite uitstekend.

Baie goed vir 'n wegbreek!

Ek het 'n plek gesoek om op 'n persoonlike wegbreek te gaan en ek het dit by Ardmore gevind. Ek stel net voor dat die rondawels so bietjie opgeknap word - veral die badkamer, maar ek is mal oor die plek en sy mense. Ek sal beslis weer teruggaan en ander vertel om soontoe te gaan. Lynette en haar man is puik, warm en gee werklik om ... so ook die res van die personeel, hulle het my soos een van hul eie behandel!

Very good for a getaway!

I was looking for a place to go on a personal getaway and I found it at Ardmore. I just suggest that the rondavels be renovated a bit - especially the bathroom, but I love the place and its people. I will definitely go back again and tell others to go there. Lynette and her husband are great, warm and genuinely care...as are the rest of the staff, they treated me like one of their own!

Nice place, tranquil and scenic. Good food. Convenient access to attractions.

Tranquil and scenic setting, relatively conveniently to activities/facilities, though access road a bit rough for family car - so drive very slowly. Accommodation quite comfortable, but "Doom" or insect repellant would have been useful. Meals were simple, but very nice (homely). On the whole, we had an enjoyable stay and would be happy to return if circumstances permitted - surprised that we got a 2-storey cottage instead of a bungalow-styled one.
