Stayed at the main hotel with game machines in January 2014 with family on my visit to South Africa to visit family. Family booked this as a surprise. Was a pleasant surprise as the hotel is lovely. Plenty of game machines for the gamblers which I did enjoy. Plenty of restaurants to choose from different hotels located in sun city... More

2 hours out of Johannesburg. Secret oasis resort in the Pilanesberg National Park. I've been here a few times and can see that certain elements are in need of a facelift- the entertainment centre, restaurants and entertainment in respect of shows all need to raise their game. For a first time visitor there are great attractions, Safari, elephant park, crocodile... More

I'll start with Ying Tao. This was definitely the worst service we have EVER received in South Africa! We waited an hour-and-a-half for mains. To add insult to injury, the manager still came to the table to ask what the missing dish was! Let me add that this was a special occasion, namely my wife's birthday., and it was her... More

We only had the pleasure of staying a night here because my company had one of the gala dinner during our South Africa trip. The hotel is a little bit old but still bearable. However, the Internet is very slow. You also have to pay for it. The rooms are quite clean, nice and spacious. The buffet breakfast are fairly... More

We spent a couple of week days in one of the spacious and well appointed chalets near the 3rd green of the golf course. Very clean rooms with comfortable beds. Lovely patio and decor in chalet. Unfortunately we had to leave early due to personal problem. The reception staff were excellent and friendly. Goodwill was particularly helpful! A couple of... More

We stayed here in April 2015, and we left feeling extremely disappointed. The cost of this hotel is astronomical for what you are getting, and I cannot believe that they charge that much for such a run down hotel, and I have no idea how this hotel can be categorized as a 4 star. We recently returned from Italy, and... More

Attended a company conference there. Facilities generally average compared to other conferencing venues in the area. Food served during conference could be at best described as adequate. Staff may be described as professional. Overall, left with the sense that this had just been another business conference that had been processed by the facility.
