We were so pleased to stay in such a well maintained and tranquil establishment. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable with a wonderful breakfast to start our day. I will definitely recommend staying at Quarry Lake with its great service and convenient location but quiet and tucked away from city noise. very enjoyable.

A modern and spacious hotel with well-appointed rooms, but unusually for South Africa, when we arrived for a one-night stay there were no staff available to take our luggage to our first-floor room. Having said that, the hotel was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was well-cooked and could be eaten on a terrace overlooking the lake. Helpful and friendly staff.

Dear Guest Thankyou for your review. Our new showers are in the modern open plan design, almost like a "wet room". They are quite functional but take a little getting used to, and do elicit some good comment too. We appreciate your comments however and will look into the functionality. So glad you enjoyed your stay and our staff will... More

Was a limited, but very pleasant, stay. Location was perfect, service was great and premises are very comfortable. Rooms are, however, looking a little tired (Carpets and bathroom particularly). Looking forward to next stay

A good place to stay, with a very spacious and quiet room. The room I had wasn't especially characterful, but it was clean and had everything I needed. Breakfast was excellent. Ask about the new steak and burger place a few minutes drive away - they do some amazing burgers!
