We stayed in a different hotel, but went to Glenshiel for dinner on a Saturday night. The place was absolutely deserted, which should have been a sign of things to come. The venue is definitely in need of an upgrade. My main gripe was with the food and service though. Service was at best unsure. We ordered a bottle of...

Recently stayed at the hotel on a business trip. The hotel is set alongside a protected indigenous forest with splendid views of the mountainous landscape. The hotel is a historical landmark and is well known amongst travelers through the generations. The rooms were spacious and the gardens were well maintained. The property is due for an upgrade, however the staff...

Situated in a gorgeous location (just outside Haenerstburg) and boasts with well-maintained gardens. Rooms are comfortable and the Hotel is decorated tastefully throughout. Great for birdwatching. The staff is very professional, friendly and helpful.

Very pretty location . Rooms are large and comfortable . Staff very friendly and helpful. This hotel will be revamped in the new year and extra rooms added. Will definitely be a must stay after the revamp.

We were fortunate enough to be the only people in the Hotel when we stayed there, so got to enjoy it in complete privacy. The gardens around the lodge are very pleasant to walk through and great for some local bird watching after a long flight and drive. Food was average, but the customer service was good. Overall, would recommend...

We have been staying at Glenshiel for almost every year for the past 19 years to attend the annual Spring Festival. We have three kids of which the youngest is seventeen months. We arrived at the hotel after 20:00 on Friday night. Upon arrival we were told that there will be a Jazz Festival on Saturday night - despite the...

We had a pre-booked (and pre-paid) room which we left immediately and stayed (at additional costs) at a different place! The entire hotel appears decrepit but the room they offered us was absolutely terrible! Very dark, everything appears shabby and outworn - and freezing cold - they don't have a heating in the room, just a fire place (which is...

We are quite regular customers. When we arrived we had to wait 1,5 hours before we could get into our room, because they were busy installing TV's in the rooms. We booked a specific room two weeks in advance (the one we always stay in) but when we got there it was not ready. The kettle was not working and...

Nearly 2months ago now, we decided on the spur of the moment to visit Magoebaskloof and Tzaneen. The staff was very accommodating with our last minute booking. It was nightfall when we got there and the first thing they did was to light a fire for us. Hearty soup was waiting for dinner while some of the staff entertained my...
