Went to have a drink at the bar, which with due credit is lovely. Came back to the room and hour later, still having cleaning ladies in the room. They apologised and all...

We stayed for two nights and found the staff friendly, the resort was nice and we used the pool which was quiet and pleasant. Unfortunately the accommodation was spoiled with a horrible out of date nasty looking bathroom that was seriously in need of refurbishment. We were in 104. Other than that the room was adequate and the linen clean...

We spent two nights at this hotel and the beautifully location made for a much needed relaxing experience out of the city (Jo'burg). We received great service from the ever helpful staff at every turn. The only down sides of our stay was the overpriced food (R 75 for a sandwich?! No. I don't think so) and what we thought...

Initially we booked only one night (at a really good discounted price), and ended up booking an additional night (and got it at the same good price) while we were checking in. The kids facilities were good, and the child minder had arranged little activities, which was especially helpful during the rainy weather. We only spent one day at the...

Thank you! Like every other lunch buffet, the food was superb. No long ques, dishes were available all the time. Serving staff and waiters were professional and delivered excellent service. I do hope hotel management remunerate them accordingly, they add to the excellence of your establishment. The only challenge was the booking, literate staff should be dealing with bookings, emails...

I visited Hunter's Rest on my own in December, the hotel is so beautiful, with very quiet and tranquil surroundings. I love the fact that it doesn't really feel like a hotel but more like a lodge with your own private terrace for each room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed relaxing by the pool which is...

This hotel has so much potential but is so badly looked after that I'm surprised it's a Protea Hotel! The gardens are in desperate need of some TLC (just mowing the lawn would be good).
