I have stayed in this hotel regularly. I have always been spoilt with a Lux room. On this trip I stayed in a Standard room and whilst comfortable and most, if not all my needs met, there were some differences. The toilet leaked, 3 of the 5 hangars were broken, for three nights I had to ask for additional towels...

The rooms in The Village are absolutely amazing. They are large and clean and the bathrooms are amazing. The staff are friendly and the whole facility is top notch. A must is to take a walk down to the river boma and take in the fabulous scenery and tranquillity.

Have stayed there many times before. Whilst some rooms are dated, this room was perfect! It has all he amenities and is very clean and tidy. It is next to a main road so may be noisy if you want to sleep.\ The staff are exceptionally friendly - all of them. Really a pleasure staying here

The rooms were dusty and the carpets were filthy, full of dust etc. The shower door was stained which made me think it had not been washed for weeks. There were bird dropping on the pillows. The cutlery was not clean and were short....

This is my fifth time with you. I now see there's no milk for coffee. Cockroaches also in the room. The rates are also much higher while the service levels dropped. The grounds are still in good shape and restaurant had good breakfast.

Situated on the banks of the Letaba River in tropical Tzaneen, the Fairview Collection combines first class facilities with warm country hospitality. The moment you enter the tranquil estate, with 18 holes par-3 golf course surrounded by mystical mature gardens, you can exhale and relax. The Fairview Hotel offers elegant 4* thatched rooms decorated in Afro-Colonial style, in a garden setting boasting an amazing variety of indigenous trees and colourful birdlife. The Village at Fairview is a luxury 5* hideaway with only ten spacious and stylish suites looking out over the lush gardens and the scenic golf course. Indulge in the warm luxury of your suite fitted with a Nespresso coffee machine, private balcony and beautiful bathroom with jumbo shower, heated towel rails, underfloor heating and jacuzzi baths to make your stay memorable. Dine in the spacious thatched Le’Thaba Restaurant offering wonderful cuisine accompanied by an excellent selection of wines. Private functions can be held at the Baobab Room and small to large conferences in a selection of well-appointed meeting rooms. Fairview offers the perfect setting for a romantic wedding with its chapel, extensive lawns and intimate feel. Enjoy pampering treatments at the Zen Spa & Rasul, play golf, try your hand at fly-fishing, walk the trails, or relax at the private swimming pool area. Golfing guests have access to a golf cart. Fairview is just 5 minutes from the heart of Tzaneen and an hour from the world renowned Kruger National Park. The lush and tropical area of Tzaneen serves as a perfect base to explore the Wolkberg Mountains, Magoebaskloof, quaint Haenertsberg, Modjadji Cycad Forest and the biggest baobab tree at Sunland.
