Although we stay quite close by (within 10km's), the hotel feels like it's in the middle of the bush and far from urban living. We celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary... accommodation was excellent, the couple's body massage was thoroughly enjoyed at the Sizanani spa on-site and breakfast had a lot of variety. The trip ended with the Eco Drive which... More

I recommended the venue to our management when I saw that it was Tripadvisor's 18th best hotel in South Africa. After experiencing it for myself I cannot understand why it... More

Staying at Thaba is always a wonderful experience. We stop in for a few tranquil days every year when we visit South Africa. Its close to the airport and several places of interest, but most of all its peaceful. Its a great location to start any visit to South Africa and recover from jet lag before continuing on your journey.

The overall experience was great. Check-in was quick and easy. When we got to our room there was a bottle of champagne waiting for us (we received a total of 4 bottles, all being delivered while we were not in the room, in fact, we didn't have any disturbances from the cleaning/ room staff at all). The view from the... More

Went here for a company team building in February. What a delight. Had our conference, food for lunch was of good quality, it could be improved upon, maybe by adding more of a variety? However, dinner was more of my style with lots to choose the from and a great vibe all round. The spa is a must, got an... More
