We stayed here June 5,2015. Traveling with our 16 and 17 year old granddaughters. The rooms were spacious, dinner was terrific and the kitchen surprised our 17 year old with a special dessert. Entire staff was great. Would happily stay here again.

I had checked the menu available offered and was looking forward to the twice cooked pork belly as a starter and the quail as a main. However these two options were not available on the limited menu offerings.This was very disappointing as I feel if you advertise your menu then the options should be available.the dessert also did not have...

We celebrated a birthday at this hotel. Lunch was first class, good quality of food and wine. One can call this definite "fine dining". The staff was excellent, very attentive and polite. the only negative was that the diningroom at the back was a bit cramped. But other than that I can only recommend.

Ten Bompas is a boutique luxury hotel that rates against any I have stayed in. My wife and I loved our three days here. The rooms are excellently appointed, the service friendly, helpful and discreet, the restaurant excellent and the attention to detail superb.

We visited on a weekend the hotel was booked for a Saturday wedding, including dinner and reception. Despite the restaurant being booked, we were offered room service at no extra cost. We ended up returning late at night and even though the chef was about to get off work, he willingly stayed longer to cook us a lovely lamb dinner... More

I am a regular guest at Ten Bompas, and as a fussy frequent traveler this place never lets me down. The staff are friendly but not overwhelmingly so. The grounds are tranquil and well kept. The suites, each a different style, are large and full of fantastic touches. A wood burning fireplace - my favourite thing in Joburg wintertime, a... More

It is like a home from home. Peaceful, cozy and relaxing, I just wish it was in a city that I had to visit very frequently! The suite bedrooms are amazing, though mine - number 8 was rather too dark for my liking. Wide balcony surrounded by trees so very pleasant indeed. Lovely light bathroom with steam room in the...

I stayed in Ten Bompas quite a few years ago(the date on this review is the oldest I could select) but it was pre my review writing days. If it's anything like it was when we stayed there it's fabulous. Great rooms/suites with a minibar to die for! Really excellent food and great staff.
