We planned an anniversary weekend away to the coachouse. We hadn't been there in many years, so it was to be a trip down memory lane. When we arrived, at reception,it was cold and no fire blazing. I required WiFi, they had advertised it was available, and that Was one reason I chose the coach-house. I was told, it wasn't... More

Coach House hosted our annual Christmas in July motorcycle rally. The staff were incredibly accommodating and special mention must be made of the Food and Beverage Manager, Sam - who went out of his way to make sure that the bar was stocked to our liking, that we had assistance with hanging banners and flags and that whenever a potential...

We had our quarterly cycle meeting at Coach House with 30 people attending. What a great experience. I can recommend it as a conference venue. The rooms are beautiful and large, the staff is friendly and went out of their way to accommodate us. The food was great.

I used to spend Christmas and New Year regularly at this hotel in the early 1990s, when it was one of the best hotels in the Northern Transvaal and its restaurant unrivalled in the area. I returned this month after an absence of more than ten years and was amazed to find so many of the same staff, who have... More

We recently stayed over at this lovely old hotel two week ends ago as part of a week end motorcycle tour. As I have had the pleasure of staying here in earlier years, it was a trip down memory lane.

This was obviously once a majestic and magnificent hotel. The rooms are large and comfortable but unfortunately this hotel it has been allowed to go to seed. There is an air of neglect about it. There are very obvious maintenance problems everywhere. The gardens have been totally neglected and it is not cheap. Some of the staff are very friendly... More

Nostalgia took us back despite the appalling reviews. Boy were we sorry not to have listened to fellow travellers. Grotesquely over-priced. Excrementally bad food - cold, grey, piped mashed potato, string beans (5 of), quarter can of tinned tuna and some olives represented the sum total of their 'tuna salad' - a brief apology was offered that no lettuce or...

I decided to risk staying at the Hotel as it was hosting the Tzaneen Marathon that I was coming through for and logistically it just made sense, but having read some of the reviews here I was a little concerned at what I was in for. However, I can say on review that I was pleasantly surprised, and that it... More

What a shock it was to see this once beautiful old hotel having been neglected so badly and in such a rundown state. Very sad to see the rotting walls , broken roofs and totally overgrown and untidy gardens.
