This hotel has a truly beautiful setting, but none of this means a single thing when 1. the food service is appalling, and 2. the noise level of other guests are beyond description, and the hotel seems to have no measures in place to deal with the offending parties. Starting with my second point, I need to state that during... More

The hotel is well suited for a business traveller in this area offering the type of amnemnities one would expect. The hotel provides for more luxurious accommodation at The Village which is preferred. It is situated in a beautiful area and the ambience ensured a most enjoyable stay.

Once upon a time this must have been a beautiful well run hotel and worth the 5 star ratting. The property is run down , food is awful and rooms not clean. Whoever is running it does the bare minimum - shame cause the staff are nice

The check-in took place quickly and I was granted a 5* stay at The Village, from the lobby it takes long by walk and you must go by golf car....., when I... More

My husband and I attended a wedding held at the Fairview Hotel in March 2014. The venue for the venue was beautiful but what an awful experience with the accommodation! What a disappointing visit we had to Fairview in Tzaneen. The 4 star room we had in the Village section was dirty and run down and had an awful smell.... More

My wife and I have regularly dined here in the past and particularly enjoy the fact that Cedrick, the head chef and great host always personally greets the patrons and ensures their requested dishes live up to their expectations. Food portions are ample and they also have a great range of exciting and pertinent wines. As someone who tends to... More

The waiter was uninformed and useless. The wine list is poor. The food was awful. We waited for 20 minutes for coffee which never arrived. We had to beg for the bill! (which was wrong!) Altogether a miserable experience!
