This hotel offers exceptional service and great luxury. I stayed a night in the hotel as a wedding guest. The reception staff are very friendly and very helpful and the ice cold waters available are always appreciated in the hot african sun. The property itself is perched on the top of the Klipriversberg nature reserve hills and the views are... More

I was disappointing with the Kraal Kombuis Restaurant, it lets the rest of the hotel down, it definitely not a four star restaurant. Paper napkins, Poor service from waiters, Plastic chairs, Excess chairs packed outside, no really theme to the interior, There is no atmosphere created, no one person who seemed like they were in charge, no connection with the...

Had a two day/night conference at the hotel. slight mix-up with the organisers, however, the hotel staff scurried to accommodate the shortfall. Rooms are big and comfortable and mine was well away from the restaurant and activity area to be well rested for the next day's conference session. Had an extensive buffet selection for all meals, with al le carte... More

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.
