“"The most romantic place" by Tebogo Mabokela”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

My fiance and I went to Kievitskroon on the weekend of valentine and as usual Kievitskroon team went an extra mile for me to totally surprise my fiancé. Only on my way to Kievitsroon i arranged with the team to make our evening romantic.On check in everything was "normal", normal being high class service that is always rendered by Kievitskroon, from the team-rooms-spa and its facilities to their restaurants. Kievitskroon team is at all times professional, friendly and always ready to help. After dinner the room had a chilled champagne and rosé petals everywhere including the bath tub. My fiancé and i were blown away. I always recommend Kievitskroon to people and they all come back with positive feedback! You can go for a spa treatment and while you at it have a scrumptious lunch or take your friends with for spa treatments. Warning: once you go to Kievitskroon you will never want to go anywhere else. Thank you Kievitskroon for making our stay pleasant AGAIN and AGAIN and......... :)

Thank you for spending your Valentine's weekend with us, and for the wonderful review of your stay. We like to think that Kievits Kroon is ideal for a couple's retreat with lots of privacy, spacious rooms, pampering in the spa and gourmet dining. We hope to see you back soon!

Kievietskroon Spa Resort offer great spa facilities with a fantastic range of massage and body detox, wrap programmes which conspire to rid the body of built up toxins and bring on great relaxation.

The resort also sports standalone bungalows which are well appointed with very comfortable beds and good bathrooms. The restaurant's food is very good, not outstanding but very good.

Their regular weekend packages are good value for money and a welcome break from the busyness of city life and stresses of work.

Recommended.

Room Tip: Almost any bungalow would be great. The resort now also has a double storey complex of rooms which s...

My husband and I try to visit Kievitskroon at least once or twice a year, most especially on our anniversary. This lovely estate is so close to home that it makes for the perfect weekend venue, and yet once on the estate you feel like you are miles away. I go for the Spa and the tranquil surroundings, my husband goes for the food! The service is top notch and any complaints or concerns are dealt with promptly.

We spent a wonderful evening at Kievits Kroon. The layout of the estate and the facilities are remarkable. The atmosphere is relaxed and you are well cared for by the staff. The selection of food and beverage is great and well priced; service can at times be a bit slow. Both the breakfast buffet and dinner in Granita is fabulous, quality on both accounts is great. We recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to escape from the city. Oh, just a word of caution, no kids under 14 allowed, great for some hindrance for others.

Your review is greatly appreciated and it's rewarding to see that you recognise Kievits Kroon for all the things we want it to be - relaxed attitude, caring staff and fabulous food. I have noted your point about slightly slow service. We are constantly working to improve this. Our child policy is in place because we want couples to be able to get away from all chilcren, not just their own!

I enjoyed one night and a day in the spa- what great facilities, relaxing atmosphere and very helpful staff. The buffet dinner and breakfast was an eat your heart out affair with pretty much anything you can think of on the menu. I would definately go back.

Our company had a year end function at Kievits Kroon and all 50 guests stayed over night.Very nice setting, with upgraded security since the honeymoon suite shooting incident of 2007.The rooms were up to standard.However few mood spoilers really left a bitter taste. The food was mediocre with very small portions and most of the guests were still hungry after dinner. During the function our company's camera went missing from one of the tables.Furthermore, the Barmen were on the take. Not ringing up all transactions and offering drinks after the till was closed for a cash reward.In the morning of check out we found that some of our equipment got stollen from the venue. All lost/stolen items were reported in the morning post our event to the staff on duty. Two months post the event we have received a very short and careless response from one of the managers to say that they have not retrieved any of the missing goods.
