We were spending the night in Rustenburg and required last-minute accommodation. We drove up, walked up to the reception desk and asked for the most basic room since we only needed it for the night. Every part of the experience was pleasant; from the security guards at the entrance to the staff at the desk. The room was lovely, spacious and comfortable, and certainly exceeded what would have been expected from a standard room. Initially, we had indicated that we would not need breakfast, but our plans changed in the morning, so we had a chance to try out their selection, which was standard, but certainly more pleasant than some other places. The location is lovely and the hotel is nestled in a beautiful valley, which provides lovely views while you're in the restaurant, or when you're out on the deck having a drink. On our way out we noticed that they also had a little putt-putt course, which would no doubt prove entertaining to many guests. I'd certainly return to the hotel when next I find myself spending the night in Rustenburg.

A beautifully located, garden hotel, with associated golf course and pool. All was fine, but, for this time of the year, just too cold.

The room did not warm up properly, and it was not even the peak of the cold season.

We had made a telephonic reservation which was not registered at the hotel, but there were enough rooms, so not a problem.

I assume during warmer periods of the year, an exellent place to stay.

Amazing places and environment. Quite refreshing I must say. Clean and spacious.
Was there for a wedding and it was well planned from the staff of Protea and was very much impressed by a gentleman named Themba. Excellent guy. Organised and knows how to communicate with people of all ages. Level-headed at all times even to chaotic elderly people. Keep up the great ob you are doing. You are destined to go far in this industry.

After having booked at a guesthouse in the area to support our daughters netball tournament, we found ourselves desperately looking for alternative, cleaner, more decent accommodation.
We arrive at Hunters Rest to be greeted by friendly and efficient reception staff. Even though there didn’t appear to be a room available for the full duration of our stay, we were told that they would make a plan. And they certainly did.
We were accommodated in a spotlessly clean and very comfortable room.
Whilst this older room could do with a bit of a revamp, especially in the bathroom it’s really fine and not really lacking in much.
The only thing I can fault is that there are none of the small extra amenities like tissues and face cloths in the room.
The breakfasts are adequate, with a reasonable selection. Food from the room service menu was surprisingly pleasant.
The spa, is magnificently decorated. The therapists friendly and efficient. The treatment rooms are beautiful. The massage was one of the best we’ve had.
I would definitely recommend this resort when traveling in the area.

At just over an hour outside of Johannesburg, this remains the ideal destination for a "city escape" and a recharge of the batteries. Whilst the hotel has lost it's independent owner run feel and now wears the corporate clothing of yet another chain, the staff and management do their best to make your stay as individual and tailored as possible. A mention here to the Petra, the GM, who's door is always open and who makes herself available to address any concerns that are beyond the scope of her team
Service and hospitality are excellent and the rooms deliver on comfort and cleanliness.
Food and Meals are good, although the evening buffet remains a little pricy for what's on offer. None the less, you won't go to bed hungry.
The pool and gardens are immaculate and the 9 hole golf course is perfect for tuning your short game and putting.
A great weekend and a thumbs up to everyone at Hunters Rest

Room Tip: There isn't really a bad room
