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.

The reviews of this hotel range from excellent to terrible but I told myself own experience counts and I was not disappointed. The 4* rooms are sufficiently spacious, the walk-in shower is great, the rooms are equipped with big TV screen and ceiling fan, for cold nights there is an open fireplace in the anteroom. Trees and bushes are everywhere,... More

This was not a great stay - cold shower as the geyser tripped and I saw at least 3 cockroaches in what was suppose to be 5 star accommodation.

Marinda T, Public Relations Manager at Fairview Hotel & Village, responded to this review

Sir We apologise for the inconvenience from the geyser that tripped, we could always arranged for you to be moved to another unit. Did you report the problem when you realise the water was cold ? and the cockroaches - we have a serious pest control plan in place, but unfortunately these guys always have a way to outsmart us.
