The Protea Hotel Ranch Resort is probably the biggest flaw I can find with this almost perfect slice of the sweet life. I arrived at dusk and was welcomed by a wild striped beast 20m from the gate. That to me is what a good resort offers; your experience must always start at the gate. I drove through the thicket... More

I was actualy going to complain about having to drive so far, but was very pleasantly surprised by the hotel. It was really amazing, the rooms were huge and very nice, more... More

The rooms are clean, comfortable, flat screen TV with clear reception, comfortable beds. The grounds boasts one of the best gardens and layouts I have seen at any hotel. The catering was... More

There are no words that can explain this place. There are words that can give you an idea of what the place looks and feels like but still those words do little justice to the actual look and feel of this hotel. I had a very pleasant and relaxing weekend ever. Everything at this hotel is so beautiful. The scenario,... More

Recently attended a wedding at The Ranch Hotel. Still one of the best wedding venues around, great setting, good food and fantastic service. The first course was informally served on the deck overlooking the lions who were also having lunch. Chef Daniel did the couple proud. A Scots piper piped in the guests and having the Cheetah bring in the... More

The Ranch is not actually in Polokwane it's 30 km out of town. On the bright side the resort has good facilities and lots of activities. The game drive is a must do for anyone visiting this hotel. It is worth much more than what you'll pay. The staff were mostly helpful and friendly.

Had a great night at the Ranch, great place to disconnect from the rest of the world. Two problems I had, I was on room 95 and there is no wifi signal there. I was really lost. Even my wifi modem would not work. The hotel needs to do something to extend the signal it's very disappointing not to be... More

The hotel is nice, big rooms with privacy. The room still had an old menu with old prices. I was only advised about the new prices in the morning when I was checking out and settling the bill. Breakfast was good
