We very much enjoyed this special place which was beautifully furnished and appointed. Each suite of rooms was just as one would want it, if one could afford it, with all facilities provided to a tee. The communal areas were of the same calibre and the service and food was of a very high standard which both my wife and...

Could be a really nice hotel with a bit of an update. Great location for visiting both Kruger park and the panoramic route. Very friendly staff in a beautiful location. But everything felt a little dated and the lack of air conditioning in certain areas (in particular the dinning room) made some areas very uncomfortable to sit in. The rooms...

On our arrival to the guesthouse, we were very excited for the next install meant to our honeymoon! We had just come from a few days safari in Kruger national park. We were greeted promptly by a member of staff who didn't really seem to know how to check guests in, whilst talking us through the running of the hotel...

The only problem is the street which is a big problem in case it is raining! We got stuck and needed the help of a tractor to get out!! Overall we liked the place and...

We recently stayed for 3 nights at Haighgrove House and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The setting is very peaceful, the rooms were comfortable and the food was superb. The staff were friendly and non-intrusive. A wonderful interlude before going on to safari.

I can only speak as we experienced and I note that most people had an excellent experience, but we just felt it was not up to 5 star luxury. We came here after safari in Sabi Sands to relax and refresh. The hotel is tucked away in beautiful grounds and is a haven of peace and tranquility. We were in...

Hidden in a beautiful, hilly scenery of forests and agricultural land about 1 mile from the main road from Hazyview to White River, this classic, victorian stylish boutique hotel offers much more than a room to sleep.
