It was a lovely family getaway, not too far away from Pretoria but also far enough to have lovely scenery. The room we had was a family room, I felt could have been cleaner and the bedding could have been better too. During our stay the staff were very friendly and helpful. Food: the felt that the food was good... More

Went to a conference here. The surrounding area was beautiful, and the venue was also great. The Spa was first class, and the food was ok. They have a great pool and a lot of stuff for kids. I think it is a great place if you are doing something that involves families. The rooms are ok. If you are... More

We stayed at the hotel in a family suite with 3 kids. The bed was about 10 years (seriously) past its retirement date. It was the very worst bed I have ever slept in. To the manager's credit, when I complained they did change the mattress but this type of experience should never be allowed to occur if management were... More

We stayed four nights at Sparkling Waters. The grounds are well kept, the rooms a very nice size. The food service is the best of any of the room and board type hotels we have stayed in. The staff is efficient and well-mannered. Quiet surroundings and not far from necessary shopping.

This is my second visit to Sparkling Water, this time with an 6 year old and infant. The staff are great and really accommodating our special feeding needs for the baby. The entertainment for our 6 year old was wonderful, he didn't even want to take a day trip to Sun City he was so enjoying himself

Our choice this year for the company year end function was Sparkling Waters in Magaliesberg. Started off with brunch which was a 5* affair followed up with canopy tours. Excellent venue, excellent service and value for money.

The Executive rooms are very comfortable and spacious for a 3 star hotel with good attention to detail such a complimentary fruit bowl. The beds are large and very comfortable for a good night's sleep. Food for Breakfast and Dinner is buffet style but plentiful, well presented and varied. The staff are generally cheerful and helpful.

Thank you for your lovely Tripadvisor review. We provide buffet style service when the hotel is busy, along with TdH on quieter days. The menu is changed daily and we receive rave reviews of our food. The Bar ambiance and atmosphere is a subject of much discussion.

Rooms are a series of chalets within the hotel grounds, quite comfortable, cleaned daily with turn down service in the evenings. TV channels are a little limited but acceptable. Good showers.
