Elliot is a town in Chris Hani District Municipality in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa, and lies 80 km south-west of Maclear and 65 km south-east of Barkly East.

Originally the village was established in 1885 and known as Slang River, and in April 1894 was renamed Elliot, becoming a municipality in 1911. Named after Sir Henry George Elliot (1826-1912), Chief Magistrate of the Transkeian territories from 1891 to 1902.

Key features

Introduction

In the Drakensberg range, each season has its own beauty and sandstone formations form part of the environment.  The hotel is at the top of the Barkly Pass with a height of 1990 metres above sea level. 

Be amazed by the creation of God’s hand and move freely where time and space have no limits and gaze at millions of stars, seemingly so close that you can touch them by hand.

Our hotel is the perfect halfway house between Natal and Eastern/Western Cape.  This country hotel is ideally situated between the Inland of SA and the South Coast / Wild Coast.

About Us

Our hotel is situated amongst the picturesque mountains of the Southern Drakensberg Mountains, in the heart of the Eastern Cape. In the Drakensberg range, each season has its own beauty and sandstone formations form part of the environment.  The hotel is at the top of the Barkly Pass with a height of 1990 metres above sea level. It is on the scenic R58 Route between Barkly-East (42 km) and Elliot (22 km) - where the R393 route from Rhodes (70 km) joins the R58 route.

The main building consists of a convivial lounge with a big screen TV, dining room and bar. Three fireplaces burning on cold summers' days as well as through the winter. 

Accommodation & Conferences

There are 20 sleeping units each consisting of 2 or 3 bedrooms with own bathroom. Each unit has a TV, heater, kettle and cups. Cozy linen and electric blankets are provided for each bed.

We also have conference facilities and an enclosed lapa.  The Hotel provides an ideal venue for training groups, motivational conferences and company getaways. The facilities are realistically priced to meet market needs. Break-away facilities are available.

Food and beverages

The capable kitchen staff provides:

  • English breakfasts (optional).
  • A la carte lunches.
  • 5-course buffet dinners.
  • Food parcels for traveling guests (by request).
  • Refreshments during conferences (by request).

Activities

  • Three different one-day walking trails.
  • Bastervoetpad Pass - can be reached by high clearance 4 x 4 vehicles only.
  • Biker friendly routes for quad and mountain bikes.
  •  A 4 x 4 circle route via Rhodes, Naude's Nek Pass, Maclear, Ugie and Elliot.
  •  A visit to Lundean’s Nek where sandstone buildings form part of the natural scenery.
  • Visits to rural areas of the Transkei - Mtatha and others.
  • Amateur skiing can be enjoyed in winter on the snowclad mountainsides.  Professional skiing can be done at the Tiffendal Ski Resort in season.
  • In this area of the Eastern Cape you will find many rock art sites. These Bushman paintings or rock art were painted by the San thousands of years ago and are just a short drive from mentioned towns and can be viewed in a day.  Guided tours can be done when guides are available.
  • Fly-fishing opportunities in the Southern Drakensberg continue to increase rapidly as is happening elsewhere in South Africa. The many crystal clear rivers and dams in the higher reaches are regular favourites with the serious and skilled fly-fishermen. Brown and rainbow trout occur throughout the region.. 
  • The area offers the opportunity to sight birds that are not commonly seen in other areas, because they only occur above a certain sea level. Species more commonly sighted on the Naude's Nek Pass are the Ground Woodpecker, Orange-breasted Rockjumper and Drakensberg Siskin. The hotel is the ideal base to view birds on the Bottelnek and Bastervoetpad trails. There are altogether more than a 120 bird species in this area of the Eastern Cape which includes rare species. These rare species - to mention only a few - are the Black Stork, Bearded Vulture (Lammergeier), Black Harrier, Black Eagle, Cape vulture, Grass Bird and the Cape Rock Thrush.  This area of the Eastern Cape is well known for its diverse Flora and some of the most beautiful plants are found here.
