Do not book here. We were notified in April that our summer 2010 booking was canceled under the pretense that due to high crime the hotel was closing, and our deposit would be refunded in 2 weeks . It has now been 6 weeks and we have not received our money nor are our emails being answered. Chris and Pamela... More

No evening meal available without pre booking and we did not know this.A taxi ride into town is not really what we needed after a long day traveling. Breakfast was not great either. The milk was off and the service very slow (even by South African standards). The rooms were great and well equipped and the beds very comfortable. It's... More

Our room (Moroccan) was large, clean, comfortable and had a huge bath with large (hot) shower. Grounds are beautiful. If you... More

If you like to have a Lowveld experience, Hazeview is the place to go. You will find everything within a 40km radius. Staying over @ Chilli Pepper Lodge added to the experience. Chris, Pamela & their kids, Danielle and Charne welcomed us with hospitality known to few. The Garden room we occupied was very spacious with all the luxuries you... More

The rooms and bathrooms as well as the pool are filthy. The place reeeks of mildew. If they gutted the place it could be nice again. It is a faded lady. Stay elsewhere.... More
