The setting is beautiful. Large trees and beautiful lawns and gardens. As a result there is an abundance of local birds. The breakfast menu is an extensive buffet with a combination of typical breakfast dishes and local favourites including savoury mince, a variety of local sausages and other mouth watering options For lunch and dinner the Boma is an option...

I complained on the first night and they told that they will look at switching it off. nothing happened. I complained much later on the second night and was told, that had I complained earlier I would have been...

Our company used this hotel for their board meeting and AGM. This is an old established venue that has the feeling of being in the country while being on the fringes of the city. Whilst it is a hotel the conference facilities are, I think the main attraction. Several eating venues, The Chief's Boma, Epsom Terrace cater for multiple tastes....

Had a terrible experience at the Spa. Would not recommend Mowana Spa to my worst enemy. Staff are rude and arrogant. I guess you only get treated with respect if you are there with a big corporate company and not as an individual. From the moment I booked my treatment with Mowana it was a terrible experience. So much so...

If the general expectations of level of service for a four star hotel is considered the stay at the Indaba Hotel Fourways does not at all live up to that. After flight delays and problematic arrival, I checked in. The staff at reception, despite my request did not show me to my room. The walkways, without proper signage or lighting...

I stayed 3 days for business in may. Indaba is a huge hotel with bungalows and huts. The territory gives me room to walk in the park. The location was safe and food was ok. I would come back next time.

A lovely hotel just outside the busy areas of Sandton and Fourways. The grounds are fantastic and a number of exotic birds can be found in the place. The staff of this hotel were incredibly friendly.

Booked a spa and stay package. It was my partners birthday. I asked for rose petals and champagne to be in the room on arrival. Both were there as well as a personal letter from the Manager wishing her a Happy Birthday!!!! A lovely touch. The room was comfortable. The Boma restaurant needs an upgrade, revamp and deep clean.

Spa treatment at Mowana Spa was excellent! Good value for money! Hotel room was acceptable - a bit dated - needs upgrade! Some of the areas behind chairs were a bit dusty! Buffet breakfast was very good!
