I would appreciate if you could perhaps look into the cities latest maps, because on my way to there I kind of got lost and tried using the navigation systems and it couldn't find the place, so I ended up asking around. the navigation systems took me to the hotel just down the street to yours, the one at the...

Well worth the visit. The setting and ambience are such as to remove any mental disturbances you might have on arrival. I was unaware of the existence prior to my business visit and have the firm intent to re-visit with my family.

My husband and I visited the Village at Fairview Hotel for our anniversary. The hotel is situated in the beautiful town of Tzaneen on the banks of the Letaba river. We first had a couples massage at the Zen spa which was truly amazing. Thereafter we enjoyed the razul at the Spa which we can recommend strongly. My husband enjoyed... More

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
