We planned to stay for 2 nights but left after the first night as the place disappointing on every level - shocking food, boiled eggs, frozen fish cakes and cold and very questionable sausages are posed as " picnic" brunch - they book you without confirming at their "goblins cove" restaurant which is severely overpriced and of significantly poor quality....

Thee bath had rust stains and the walls weee covered in the creepiest deco. The were dolls heads in photo frames all over the show. I strongly recommend choosing somewhere else to go as... More

I read a few of the unfavorable reviews but decided to give this place a chance irrespective and was horribly disappointed. The overall look of the place was fine but the service experienced was painfully slow. The package include a dinner basket on the first night. It took us nearly an hour to receive of dinner basket and after my... More

We decided to go away last minute on a friday afternoon just for one night. The concept of teh place as well as pictures are beautiful. Perhaps we got a little unlucky with our room since it was so last minute. We got the only available room La Oliver The room was really dark and had a sort of depressing... More

I fell inlove with this place. I needed time out from the johannesburg madness and found this gem last minute. I was treated so well, the staff were fantastic. I was nervous to go away on my own but it was well worth it, i was made to feel very safe and the 2 beautiful dogs slept outside my cottage... More

Wanted to try this establishment for some time. Was not disappointed at all! The highlight was most definitely the picnic spots down by the river. On new years eve we had a bottle of ice cold champagne with our picnic basket! We had beautiful weather and could make full use of the tranqiulity besides the river. We stayed in one... More

Beautiful venue and Spa. However this was ruined by the night of little sleep due to the noise from the road. The ear plugs on the bed side table should have been a warning. For a day visit to the spa and cocktails next to the river well worth it.

Recently we travelled to Pilanesberg and searched for an interesting place to stay over. We were fortunate to get a reservation at La Provence D'Afrique in Magaliesberg and arrived there late on a fairly cold Friday evening. Jeremiah welcomed us and took us to our room (the honeymoon suite as a surprise!) where a lovely fire awaited us. Then we... More
