I stayed at the facility for a 3 day conference. The facilities are good, well maintained and the staff are very helpful. The managment staff made a concerted effort to provide really good halal certified meals for myself and 3 colleagues. This was very much appreciated. The room I stayed in was in a cluster of 4. The rooms are...

Way back I have once visited Kievits Kroon for a convention and was really surprised to see how it has grown. The friendly help of all staff, having umbrellas ready on this rainy day(thoughtful gesture) and the lovely variety of food for breakfast and lunch really impressed me. The boardroom has everything we have asked for and it was comfortable...

Great 24hrs away--rather use pvt (pairing/a la carte) restaurants! We made use of the Spring spa sleep-over deal--Well received on arrival. Room was great and inviting. Very busy venue but still able to relax around the pool area. Staff very friendly-service at pool a bit slow. Spa treatment great (also busy-----package offering?) Buffet dinner very disappointing-we arrived after 8 and...

We booked at Kievits kroon as a party of 4 for a bridal shower, after considering many other places in the same price range (including the African Pride hotel in Melrose Arch, which I know from experience would have been 10 times better).

It nay not be this hotel's fault that we were sold it as a luxury stop over during our Rovos Rail trip through South Africa, but it was a serious disappointment.

Check in and check out were logistical nightmares because of a small inadequate reception desk and hopelessly...

Our stay here was for a weekend, for a romantic package that they offer each season. We were treated with warmness and attentiveness. Food was of great standard and the spa was absolutely divine. Being welcomed with a drink of your choice is just another touch that makes ne feel welcome.
