Visited the hotel for a wedding, where everything was spectacular. Most of all the service from the staff was excellent and I had never seen it before at any other hotel. Everyone is helpful and friendly. The buffet breakfast with a wide range of english breakfast and continental treats is a must. Thank you for a unforgettable stay!

Best day of my life! A hotel that will go the extra mile... BREATHTAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL!!! We used three of Shhangri-La's venues, the Jacaranda lane where our ceremony took place. The white garden for drinks and snacks after and the spectacular amphitheater for the reception - it was a fairytale wedding. 100m of curtain fairy lights covering the entire amphi. Absolutely...

We recently escaped to Shangri-La Country Hotel for Valentines Day and were not disappointed. Beautiful surroundings tucked away from the hustle and bustle of life we were greeted by a lush welcome with a sumptuous lunch at the Hotel's Bellows Restaurant. We were treated to a 4-hour couples retreat. Therapists were professional. They are a small spa so be sure...

Yes the gravel road to get to the entrance of the property maybe leave you wanting new shocks but I got to tell you that walking into your room that has the perfect Jacuzzi in your courtyard with clean fresh bush air leaves you wanting to never return to the city. They have the best burgers we ever had, the...

Every once in a blue moon one comes across really good service. That is nothing exceptional.

After having stayed in a number of establishments in South Africa over the last couple of months, it was such a lovely pleasure to come across a hotel that surpassed every expectation that we had. Our stay was a one-night stop over en route to a game reserve in the Vaal Water area. A quick Internet search popped up the...

The only reason why I have rated them an average is for the mere fact that they do not specify on their website that they have two huge dogs on the premises. For people that don't like dogs,scared of dogs or have a phobia for dogs there is no consideration taken into account. Although the dogs are not harmful I...
