The hotel itself is built in a modern architecture, sober but stylishly, with a nice design in al the details. It uses the slopes of the hill on which it is situated and the view is...

We enjoyed our stay. The Hotel rooms were clean and comfortable. The view from the back door was amazing. The staff were friendly and ready to help. The caves were informative. The hotel should have a halaal menu or a bigger variety for vegetarians. I would highly recommend it.

The hotel is less than an hour outside of Jhb, the drive is scenic and peaceful. The hotel is quiet and boasts...

Thank you to the team hard at work over the festive season. We booked in on Christmas Day. Overcast, cool and rainy weather. However it was still quite relaxing. There is a small lounge area...

My husband and I along with our 9 month old daughter stayed for a night at the Maropeng Boutique Hotel. It is a lovely small hotel with beautiful views from all the rooms. We stayed in room 9 but if you would like a quieter room the rooms right at the far end are best 20 onwards. The bed although...

This hotel was perfect after a long day at the Cradle of a Humankind. It is on the same grounds. The room was very comfortable, the food breakfast and dinner included was good. This was a very nice one night stay. Staff was great.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
'Maropeng', is a Setswana word meaning 'returning to the place of origin' and this was kept in mind when the interiors of the hotel were designed.The four elemental forces of nature, earth, fire, water and ice that kick-started our planet some 3-billion years ago feature prominently in the overall look. The 24-bed boutique hotel is a five minute walk from South Africa's premier tourist attraction and 10 km (6 mi)from the Sterkfontein Caves. ... more   less
