People need to know what they are getting here... It's "ok" if you just want a bed and a pool and a park for kids. But it's SERIOUSLY nothing fancy AT ALL, and probably should have their 3 stars challenged. The decor is horribly outdated, right down to warn and threadbare "salt and pepper carpets", musty smelling rooms and archaic... More

This is our third December we have stayed at Sparkling Waters and we always leave completely satisfied. The accommodation is spacious, clean and comfortable. Rooms have comfortable beds, aircon, chairs indoors and outdoors. The rooms and hotel are set in the most beautiful gardens, so well landscaped and kept. After breakfast most guests seem to end up lounging about the... More

I had the privilege of staying at this hotel in October 2014. First of all i was not to impressed being 26 km away from Rustenburg, as I was working in Rustenburg that week.

Many thanks for your Tripadvisor review, and for your kind thoughts and comments about the hotel. As you say, we are 20 or so minutes drive from Rustenburg, and a world away, as we are ideally located in the clean air of the Magaliesberg Mountains. We are a business and conference venue as well as a family resort. Many of... More

I stayed in this hotel at the beginning of December for two nights. The food was terrible the service was the same and the accommodation appeared not to have changed from the 1970's. It would be fare to say I would not stay here again. Even in the bar the staff seemed to be more interested in serving the other... More

I have been visiting Sparkling Waters for the past 20 years. I have visited here with as many as five of my kids at once, and as a couple. The core of why I enjoy coming here has remained the same. There is plenty to keep kids busy as long as the weather is good. Adults can escape to the... More

Staying somewhere with two young children on your own quickly separates the good venues from the bad. Sparkling Waters puts even many pricier options to shame, with loads of space, great facilities, nice food and fantastic staff who went out of their way to help, even to the extent of following you at the buffet carrying plates so you can...
