2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

the rooms were clean and was happy about them but the food and service was poor, the waiters took too long to bring our food or if they bring it on time it will be a wrong order and it also took them more than 20 minutes to bring drinks that you ordered

Our trip was to attend a wedding at the venue, and we found the Thaba Eco Hotel an excellent venue to spend time with family. The food and hospitality was amazing. I would definitely go again with my family, this time on holiday.

Thaba Eco Hotel is excellent. Great value, excellent service, wonderful food and a large, attractive suite. The bed was comfortable with fine linens. We strolled around the nicely landscaped grounds and the hotel provide transportation to the nearby Klipriviersberg Nature Preserve where we hiked.

I lost my jacket in my hotel room and called 1-2 days after returning to Australia but they said room service didn't find it. I guess house keeping took my jacket. I did offer to pay for postage for it to be returned to me. Also we didn't manage to get spa treatments booked (only had space for 1 of... More

Great room, great restaurant, great spa. We did the romance package. They did more than we would have expected. The 'room' is a sweet suite that is extraordinary! The view is amazing!

Our hen party stay over at Thaba Ya Batswana was a delight. From the champagne and tapas on Saturday afternoon to the spa treatments and high tea at The Olive Room on Sunday, we couldn't have chosen a lovelier, friendlier environment in which to treat our friend before her big day.

What a wonderful three day conference we had at Thaba Eco Hotel. The venue was quiet, yet close to Johannesburg.
