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

The staff was unfriendly upon my arrival on Sunday night. I had to ask several times about the hotel as the staff was not forthcoming with information as like where breakfast is serviced, what times breakfast and dinner is served as well as where the swimming pools and other amenities can be found. The room was very luxurious and spacious.... More

We stayed at this hotel for just 2 nights to do several activities the hotel has to offer. The staff were really nice, the room was excellent (I disagree with many reviews that say the rooms were dated), and the food was great. We booked breakfast with the hotel room. Unlike most properties we stayed at on our vacation, the... More

The Ranch Resort is part of the Protea group of Hotels. It is conveniently located close to the N1 highway, but away from the hustle and bustle of Polokwane City. Rooms are well appointed, clean and spacious with two double beds in each room. The staff members were friendly and responsive to requests. The hotel is situated on a small... More

I was at the resort for the whole of last week, was attending a national conference hosted at the venue. The food was great, and staff were having bright and welcoming smiles at all times. Mollen and the whole crew made my stay very pleasant. I identified a few shortcommings, which were addressed and sorted when I notified the management.... More

Rooms were ok and staff good. beautiful layout however I doubt if this is a 4 star hotel. the spa prices are overpriced esp as the spa is in a empty unit - 4 massage beds in one room, no gowns and frankly not what i would expect. what happens when...

Spent a few days at the Ranch and had a great time! Rooms clean and spacious, food was tasty and the staff were friendly. Great pub just off main reception with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Will definitely stay there again if the opportunity arises. Outside heated pool was a winner!

I love their sunday lunch and the atmosphere. Their ox tail and grilled meat.....yummy. The service is good. Hanging out with friends and enjoying desserts is the best feeling ever. I love were the Ranch is situated, out of city centre. If you need some peace and quiet and enjoy good food, thats the place to be.

Good Hotel, what put me off was smoking in the bar, and no facility for non smoker, I did raise this with management. Buffet Breakfast was great. The hotel has a beautiful garden and is situated in quiet secluded area.
