New owners Peter and Shelley Vergottini and Hennie and Cathy van Heerden welcome guests to experience a truly relaxing getaway in the newly renovated hotel. The hotel is built near the site of the Battle of Willow Grange (1899) and is the furthest point east on the Battlefield Route. There are game and nature reserves in the area, and the Central Drakensberg, with the imposing Giant’s Castle, is close by.
