The service and quality of accommodation exceeded my expectations. I have always travelled and stayed at accommodation located in the cities. Was I impressed with the friendly and ever helpful service, politeness with nothing being too much. The cleanliness of the room and place was impeccable. The quality of towels and bedding was so great that it added to a... More

This hotel was a pleasant surprise and we really enjoyed the stay. The rooms are well equipped, clean and furnished accordingly.The gardens are well maintained with many big trees on the grounds so... More

It was perfect for my business trip, overall service and the restaurant experience great. I found that the bed was too short for me (albeit I'm over 6foot) & it was the budget room :) with beautiful gardens.

Nice country atmosphere, friendly staff, good facilities, good value for money. I normally stay here on a business trip. What I enjoy is that though there is a full restaurant there are also self catering facilities which makes it very convenient. Personnel very friendly and helpful. A Must overnight stop for travellers to Kruger and Low veld.

We travel to Tzaneen a lot. When our preferred accommodations were unavailable we made a booking at the Fairview Hotel, lured mostly by its purported "4 Star" rating. Well, I'm not sure which galaxy these stars came from, but suffice it to say this hotel has seen better days. For example, being as objective as I can be, our hovel... More

Workers are very slow in everything they do, The gate is always open, no security at gate, anyone can go in and out. No safety at all. Breakfast comes before cereals, its unbelievable. i love the hotel

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.
