My wife and I spent the weekend at the Hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary. What a magical experience. From arrival and the warm welcome by co-owner, Mari to the marvelous service by the dedicated staff for whom any request was delivered promptly and with a smile. Our suite was spectacular and luxurious. The whole ambiance amazing. To find a... More

Arriving here is like visiting an old friend that will bend over backwards to meet your every need. Surrounded by wild life the magnificent estate and buildings are exquisite . The Marrakech remains my favourite suite with a bathroom to die for! Service is superb and nothing is too much to ask for. Mari is an excellent hostess and all... More

Chantel and her team continue to creat the best fine dinning and wine pairing in Gauteng. The choice of 3 set menu options ( each with there own special track ) is unique and sets the tone for attention to detail and quality. The table of 6 were treated to creative and complex meals that were match with a unique... More

Fantastic. From the time you arrive until you leave you're taken care of in the most unobtrusive way yet feel utterly spoilt. Dinner at Mosiac is however the highlight. Flavours, aromas and sensations all top drawer. How they arent on the cover of every foodie magazine is inexplicable. Do not miss an opportunity to go.

I was invited to a Woman's Day lunch and the venue was The Orient. WOW, what a complete surprise. The décor and the rooms are spectacular and the service was excellent. Marie and her staff made us feel so welcome and special! The highlight of the day for me was the fine dining at the Mosaic restaurant. The food was... More

This hotel was absolutely beautiful, with absolute attention to detail in terms of the rooms and surroundings. I felt like I had been transported to some North African paradise, with rooms such as 'Nineveh' evoking times gone by. The rooms were fantastic, with a feeling of opulence. The 'Mosaic' restaurant had the most mouth-watering 7 course tasting menu with matched... More

What a marvellous experience! Everyone should spoil themselves to the luxury that is to be had at The Orient at least once in their lives. From the warm welcome by the staff to the sheer decadence of dinner... An outstanding trip to another world. The on site museum and cinema are a little bonus tucked into the joy, along with... More

We slept over at the Orient last week after enjoying a heavenly dinner in the Mosaic. It is a most impressive venue situated in a tranquil conservancy 30 minutes out of the hustle and bustle of Pretoria and not much further out of Sandton. The architecture, furnishings and appointment as well as the lavish display of art rank among the... More

Fantastic moorish themed boutique hotel just outside Pretoria. 9 beautiful suites all individually decorated and really plush. Great location in the Francolin conservancy and of course home of the best restaurant in the country along with the most extensive wine list. The Orient is not only a hotel, but is rather a culinary destination to be savored.

The Orient is a small boutique hotel. It is unbelievably luxurious, with amazing decor and attention to detail. My husband and stayed for one night. We loved our stay, and the highlight was the degustation menu at the acclaimed restaurant, Mosaic. This is an experience, not just a meal. The courses were beautifully presented, very innovative, and absolutely delicious. We... More
