The room was very spacious and the beams gave the room character! Having an evening meal overlooking the watering as the sun is setting is a magical setting and staff are friendly and approachable. The safari was fantastic we had a morning drive and were lucky enough to see cheetah, lions, rhino, elephant, giraffe and a whole host of other... More

Probably one of the most business-cum-personal weekends I've ever experienced; in fact, I write this only midway through my stay. Staff are pleasant, food good, scenery magnificent and strangely quiet save for the wonderful afternoon birdsong I'm hearing as I type from room 113. The room is simple but elegant and lunch on the terrace was great; as I wolfed-down... More

There was a free shuttle from palace hotel to lodge and it was greate ! The mattress was very bad and I had a backache at the morning! The bath was good but not very clean . The dinner was perfect with too many delicious options. We had a complementary evening Safari but unfortunately we saw only one rhino from... More

An absolutely magical place to stay, rooms are roomy, well maintained & clean, all staff encountered were pleasant & friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Meals were well presented, plentiful & exceptionally tasty. Food & drinks were incredibly cheap. Amazing grounds with wild life of the Pilansburg National Park just over the back fence. Sit on the deck of the... More

Stayed here for 4 nights as part of a conference (and managed to blag a place for my wife). Really good place overall, the food was excellent, my wife tells me the spa was fantastic and the general ambience of the place was good. The staff were all courteous and friendly (if you smile at people they usually react positively).... More

Stayed here for four nights at the beginning of September for a business trip. The hotel is kept in excellent condition - very clean and best gardens. The restaurant and room staff were a little unfriendly at times but I think it was because they were mostly shy. The conference staff were quite the opposite, warm and friendly. We did... More

Loved every minute at this resort in the Pilanesberg National Park. Had a 3 bedroom-2 bath room with our own splash pool- great back patio overlooking the reserve. Access to park gate less than 5 minutes away. Staff friendly- grounds perfectly groomed. Watering hole camera brought all action to the TV in your room so you could go to watering... More

We were going to stay at a chalet in Manyane Resort in Pilanesberg, but due to a special rate, we chose to stay here for two nights as the pricing was the same. Breakfast and dinner was included in our rate, plus 1 daily game drive, which we didn't use as we self-drove. It's a quality lodge for what we... More

A lovely place to stay and the rooms were spacious and clean. we went on our first game drive and really enjoyed it. The resort is so big and they have a place dedicated for viewing the waterhole. Food was good and it was a good experience staying there.
