Great Outing...... With a top of the range service and property. The staff were professional and very helpful. We really enjoyed our rest. I will definitely be returning with my family, as there was lots to do with my kids. I have also recommended the hotel to my family and friends.

I have stayed here a few times and it has never disappointed me. Right on the river;s edge, safe, clean and in town. Parking is adequate and the area is quiet. Water is a problem though as they supply you with a small amount of drinking water. Water from the tap cannot be trusted. Municipality is not providing the best... More

The Haylards Hotel is in a wonderful location, I love the bar and pool area! Well, the room was not great, but the view was nice. The food was nice and the service was good. The hotel grounds where great and the best part is that you right on the canal. After all, the Halyards Hotel is a average hotel!

Booked on line and paid for the stay and then had to pay again when I checked out. Otherwise this is a good hotel to stay at. I'm sure this was an over site on the receptions part. The rooms could do with an upgrade.

The Halyards Hotel is a very good value for money establishment. It has a stunning location on the Kowie River with each ground floor having excess to the lovely gardens on the river bank. The rooms are large and comfortable. Meals are excellent with a delicious seafood buffet on Saturday evenings. Our group f retired educators thoroughly enjoyed our stay.... More

First impression-staff were not neatly dressed. Rooms were not ready even though we were given the key. The lighting in the room was rather dull. On Sunday morning at breakfast was the worst: breakfast was late and the lady on duty behind the serving counter reeked of body odour.

Arrived late, after 8pm on a cold Sunday evening. The staff was ver welcoming and friendly. Enjoyed the bar even being on my own. Read news paper and chatted with friendly bar lady. The room I stayed was below average, being a traveller that travel often. The price is good plus the location. All in all, it depends what you... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Halyards. staff were attentive and friendly. Food was excellent. view is lovely from the rooms and dining area. a bit of tlc on the buildings would go a long way for first impressions.
