Not ultra-modern in any sense, this place has a feel like it could have been a high-end hotel in the 1960s. Rooms are spacious and well appointed, with beautiful views over the valley. Bed was comfortable and bathroom was clean and functional, if a little dated. Not uncommon in South Africa, room keys are old fashioned and don't inspire much... More

The rooms are beautiful and comfortable with the white linen and the extraordinary view of the valley are to die for. The staff are very friendly and assist wherever they can. However, I really think management need to attend to the living area. The furniture are outdated and that green carpet is so outdated! Modern furniture and a new carpet... More

When looking at the pics on the internet I expected a seedy sort of place. In fact I even took along my own bedding. Well what a lovely surprise. The room was very upmarket with every amenity needed . Much much nicer then the advertised pictures. The crisp white linen was an absolute pleasure. But the view !!!!!! the best... More

This hotel was as delightful as I expected it to be. It has a beautiful scenic mountain setting. The amenities include a nice pool, attractive gardens along the front, a good restaurant and bar/lounge. You can even arrange for a massage. The staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. The rooms and common areas are clean, comfortable and well-kept. Even though... More

An outstanding place to visit, both for a work stay or personal.I attend the hotel with a group of colluges on a road trip around NP region. It was fantastic to find a place that took your mind away from work and allowed us to destress and come up wit great ideas to go forward with.

We have been going to Magoebaskloof Hotel since 1964 but after part of the hotel was destroyed in a fire it has lost all its country charm, the additional rooms look like any cheap upstairs downstairs housing in any town.

An easy stop-over weekender, close to good fishing waters and not far from Johannesburg. The service from staff was prompt and always with a smile. The rooms were comfortable for a family. The food served was great and with variety.
