This was our second time staying at Highgrove House and we loved it as much as the first time. We had the Executive Orchard Suite at the end of the houses. Lovely suite, bathroom and outlook. The food and service was outstanding. Adrian is terrific. Our day trip with Skalk (sp?) was enjoyable and informative and we enjoyed it immensely.... More

My first visit to this fantastic hotel was for a ten-night stay in 2004 when it became for me a benchmark in excellence for holiday accommodation in this price range - for wonderful carefully prepared and presented food, attentive service, South African ambience and top-notch comfort. Ten years later and it has improved in every department. ALL the staff really... More

From rustic accommodation in the Kruger we sank into the sheer luxury of this wonderful country hotel. Owner Kathy Russell and her excellent staff go all out to make sure your stay is perfect. Food, accomodation and spa treatments to die for. Can't wait to go back in summer...

Situated among the avocado and macadamia tree farm, this working farm is nestled away off the R40. A beautiful and tranquil setting with the driveway lined by beautiful naturally grown Jacaranda trees. We loved the beautiful setting, tranquil location and truly excellent spa services. One of our highlights for the weekend. Well worth it for a quiet getaway.

We had the most amazing few days at Highgrove House. The rooms were so 'homely" with everything you need right there! The food was amazing, so well presented too! Such friendly and helpful staff, well done to all of you! Our massages at the SPA rounded off an entirely magical weekend! We will be back very soon!
