So this is the Getaway Gateway or Getaway Polokwane. Very confusing name. I read a different name on the web as well.   On entering you're welcomed cordially. And with "Glory glory halleluya" played by someone on a recorder over the sound system. Repeat is on.   The room is quite average or a tad below. Once again not a nurturing... More

The location was very close to the CBD and close to the main shopping mall. The room was great, spacious, clean and cosy. another blanket could have been provided in the room but the under floor heating and aircon kept the room cosy.

Welcoming hosts who made us feel at home. Comfortable, spacious room with well appointed bathroom with underfloor heating that took the chill off the autumn evening. A good breakfast was also provided.

I review only venues. The venue was spacious and bright. Air conditioners were in good working condition. Staff was supportive and tea/coffee and lunch was good. I will make use of the facilities again in future.

I had the privilege to spent 11 nights as a guest of Polokwane Place. What a relaxing experience! The friendly staff created a home away from home. They provided me with an additional table to ease my studies and an extension cord for my laptop. Very kind gesture. The secure parking gave me ease of mind at night. Polokwane Place... More

All staff have a very friendly approach with all guests. Breakfast is served nicely like at a restaurant. Beautiful vegetation allover, it is like to be in a park, bird life is attracted by the natural environment. Nice tennis court available for all guests.
