Positive Reviews

A truly glorious setting

Virtually everyone who writes a review of this hotel gushes about its attractive country setting. The lush, green, and expertly tended gardens are, guests note, absolutely beautiful, while the large outdoor pool is as inviting as can be. However, it is the surrounding nature reserve, backed by the majestic Magaliesburg mountains and home to (almost tame) free roaming zebra and monkeys, which steals travellers' hearts the most. Reviewers say exploring the trails that criss-cross this scenic area is a truly memorable experience.

Spa is just heavenly

Visitors rave about the hotel's award-winning spa & hydrotherapy centre. With a heated mineral pool, hot tub, steam rooms, saunas, and nail care facility, not to mention the whole swathe of treatments/massages on hand; it's easy to see why so many reviewers rate it so highly.

Negative Reviews

Bathrooms need upgrading

While the guest rooms at this hotel receive generally positive feedback in reviews, it's often noted that the bathrooms within the accommodations are somewhat sub-par. Blocked shower drains, loose fixtures/fittings, and persistent hot water issues are some of the most commonly reported issues.

Expensive food

Although guests do, on the whole, leave pretty favourable comments about the cuisines offered here, many guests take issue with the overall pricing. Evidently, the meals — particularly those in the main restaurant — are very dear indeed.
