6 "girls" travelled from Zimbabwe for the Bon Jovi concert. We were very impressed with all aspects of Fabz Estate Hotel. The staff were friendly and made our stay so much more enjoyable. The breakfasts were absolutely fabulous! An all round thumbs up from the Zimbos.

The venue is amazing for a suburban/country venue. I believe it is good on the weekend however my family and I had a horrible experience. The food was average and I had to send my R149.00 fillet back because they cooked it well done and it was dry. I order med rare. By now we forgave this because of the setting which was ruined by the garden maintenance weed eating right next to our table! For half an hour. When we left the manager took our complaint but seemed to not care less, I think she was happy to get the weed eater back to work.

Dear Matt,

We are sincerely sorry to you and the other conference candidates who were with us through the construction of our new Conferencing venue. It was a very difficult time, as it always is during a refurbishment, we have received rave reviews on our newly completed venue. Again we are sorry that this did effect your event but look forward to seeing you at Fabz again.

Regards,

Dennis Jocks

I was shocked to see such bad comments on a place that I frequent and honestly believe is an undiscovered gem for young families. The only fault I can find with the place is in their marketing. Myself and my partner often go there for a long lunch by the duck pond or early dinner with friends, then even though the drive home to Morningside is not far, we stay the night with our 4 kids, who have then had an action-packed day of riding their bikes around the dam, feeding the ducks and playing on the jungle-gym. The kids have a ball and so do we and can't wait for our next stay!! Our accommodation is always comfortable and clean and the staff are always friendly and helpful.
