We stayed at St Ives between 18-19 March 2017 and our visit started off with Lunch at the Boma, a hearty and tasty burger and an Ice Cold Beer as we sat on the side of the lake listening to live music and watching the antelope playing in the distance. Check-In was painless and the staff were friendly and we...

Such a beautiful and perfectly located estate. Our room had a gorgeous view of the wildebeest, zebra and various buck which wander past grazing on the green valley grass. This is a very peaceful and well kept place to stay. The buffet breakfast was a little limited, and there were a few basic maintenance issues like broken blinds and a...

This is a fantastic place to stay in the midlands. Great value for money and very comfortable. Best selling point is the extremely friendly and helpful staff, best service iv had in ages. All in all I will be back to stay again undoubtably. Keep up the great service.

We spent the night here before going to Gowrie and were blown away with the staff first and foremost. Candy at the reception was super friendly and efficient. The staff at the Boma were equally so as well as the breakfast ladies the next morning. Comfy accommodation too!

The bathroom needs upgrading as well as the paved areas leading up to the rooms, broken and chipped tiles. Curtains needs to be rehung, missing curtain hooks. The coffee provided in the sachets was old and hard.

We stayed in a suite which overlooked the back of the luxury units. Which means our view was one of a building that is poorly maintained on the outside. This is very far removed from the pictures on your website. Our room was one unit removed from the supply/lunch room used by the cleaning staff. The staff was very noisy...

Our family , including daughters and grandchildren , enjoyed our Midlands Meander trip in January, based at St Ives. We could meander from there to a wide range of interesting farms, shops and eateries...and found many memorable artycrafty souvenirs, to take home to Cape Town. The animals and greenery in the expansive St Ives Lodge grounds were fun; and the...

Great location good food and service from staff. Excellent breakfast. The lake creates a great ambiance. The food and accommodation is good value. The new Boma pizza is a nice upgrade. The animals in the nature reserve are nice.
