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

I spent a night in this beautiful place surrounded by a 9 holes golf course, I was on business visit alone with a couple of my southafrican clients. 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!

Do not allow negative comments to put you off. The chalets are great, the staff friendly and helpfull, the food at the restaurant excellent food. Prices are reasonable, and the golf course is challenging, but great fun. We will definitely return.

Recently found this gem of a spot on the outskirts of Tzaneen clsoe to Magoeboeskloof as our stop-over for a bike rally for the Harley Chapter recently opened in Nelspruit. Lovely rooms, brilliant service from the staff, lots of large shady trees and fantastic lapa on the river below the lodge for a magic dinner experience. Well done to the... More
