“CAPE WINELANDS SPA EXPERIENCE IN TSWANE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

We had a relaxing overnight breakaway experience that left us with a pampered feeling of contentment.
The staff was extraordinarely interested in how we experience the service offering. (right through from reception, to the bar, restuarant and spa)
The food was fantastic, the grounds were exceptional, the accomodation luxurious and the spa peaceful and relaxing.
We received a hearty welcome, adequate attention and left feeling like long time friends.
All the worth while to visit and enjoy !

Room Tip: The luxurious suites are suitably located to provide privacy and peace (if you like to take a stroll...

Celebrating our recent anniversary on the 16 th and 17th of December at Kievits Kroon my spouse and I were really impressed by the all round EXCELLENT SERVICE from ALL STAFF.

It really was a WOW!! experience in that from check in, to the Spa, to the Dining Room, to Breakfast we had amazing service from every staff member. In fact, this made me turn through the bedroom brochure and we were not surprised to find that the leader of the Organisation personally puts emphasis on treating his staff as the important key to Customer Excellence. Mr O' Leary, our compliments as Dr John C Maxwell puts it so succinctly: 'Everything rises and falls on Leadership', so well done!

We loved the beautiful setting and will certainly return.

Room Tip: Make sure you request the rooms with the larger shower, even if you have to pay slightly more

Thanks for the great review! Kievits Kroon certainly is a beautiful estate and our team of gardeners works hard to maintain the lawns and flower beds. We are known as the Winelands in Gauteng because of the Cape Dutch-style architecture, and the estate is indeed a great venue for a peaceful, romantic getaway. We hope to see you again soon!

Stayed in KK for 4 days as part of an international conference held in the hotel. Overall satisfying experience, as the hotel is magnificient, with manicured lawns, white colonial buildings. On the pros side, the excellent restaurant, lounge, and perfect conference services. On the cons side, very slow service at the restaurant located near the lobby, differences in standard between the villa and the executive wing, and the hotel is very far from any attraction, so you need to ensure that your driver knows how to go and come back there.

Room Tip: Get a room in the executive wing if you are on a business trip.

We stayed here for 1 night to celebrate our 8th wedding aniversary. The service is great. From check-in to departure. Beautifull setting and great food. The Spa is very average if I compare to others I have been to in Gauteng, but we still enjoyed it. The buildings crying for a bit of paint outside?

A great deal of our focus at Kievits Kroon is focussed on offering the best possible service to our guests, and your positive feedback is appreciated. You will be pleased to hear that the hotel received a new coat of paint in December! We have a rigorous maintenance programme, but being on a gravel road, the buildings do tend to collect dust.

The ambience is great with the Cape Dutch architecture. The hotel is well maintained and has a moderate 5* look and feel about it.

The spa is superb and one of the best around - it's full service from the treatment rooms, chill room, jacuzzis, steam rooms, snacks and lounge area, indoor pool - no gym though. I believe they are seeing to this in 2013 though.

The main dining room is cosy and we had a privat wine and food pairing in the wine cellar room - food was good and presentation very nice. Waiters and staff in general were so friendly and helpful.

There is a variety of accommodation to choose from - we were in Superior rooms and they are more than comfortable with all amenities you would want. Free wi-fi through out too which is great.

The pool area has recently been done and it is fabulous for aprivate function or for hanging out on a lounger or on sunbeds IN the jacuzzi pool with a cocktail in hand!

The breakfast buffet is extensive and of good quality as is the lunch buffet.

Conference wise there are more than 20 conference and function rooms to choose from so you can't go wrong.

Price wise this hotel is well priced and slightly more reasonable than competitive products which I think gives it an edge.

Definitely worth going to for a special night way from town that's in accessible proximity to Jhb or Pretoria or for a small or big company event.

Room Tip: For private stays - stay in a superior room. For business/conference stays - stay in a more corpor...

We were looking for a short drive get away from Johannesburg as we did not want to be to far from the city - we stumbled across the ultimate jewel of a Hotel - Kievits Kroon - only 45 minutes drive from Sandton.

From arrival to departure the staff were excellent and friendly and the quality of the stay was excellent.

I highly recommend Kievits Kroon - try eat in both the Fine Dining Granita as well as the buffet in Kingsleys.

The spa is out of the world and very affordable too.
