I have stayed at this hotel three times now - mostly because of the conference facilities. The conference facilities are excellent and very professionally managed, but it stops there. I really cannot say that this place left a good impression on me. Whilst the view and decor are beautiful, the place lacks warmth and attention to detail. The staff just don't seem to be happy and cheerful and don't really serve their guests graciously. They are also really inflexible and keep referring to 'the rules' of the hotel. I have stayed in three different rooms and there were ants in all of them and in the one room, they were all over the bed! However, my main disappointment has got to be the food. The food is incredibly bland and unsatisfying. Although there are many options, it is just not prepared well at all. We just find ourselves not looking forward to the meals because it always disappoints. It's baffling that a place that is so popular could have such a low standard when it comes to the food. We still have 5 more conferences that we had planned to host at this venue, but are reconsidering because we cannot face eating there again....
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In the heart of the adventure capital of the Mpumalanga Lowveld, a mere 15 minute drive from the Kruger National Park, Protea Hotel Hazyview is nestled on a hill overlooking the beautiful Sand River Valley. The rooms are alluring and spacious offering all the conveniences that one expects to make this a home away from home. All our rooms overlook lush gardens that have an abundance of birdlife, adding to the feeling of being away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Not to mention several spacious family rooms that provide a comfortable area for the family to relax and unwind. Lying by the pool with a sundowner, whilst admiring the stunning views of the valley and watching the kids play on the nearby trampoline and jungle gym is perfection at its best. The chefs have prepared a wide variety of dining options to ensure that we cater optimally to healthy appetites and provide special meals for our young visitors. Additional facilities include conference venues, GUEST internet, Boma and a children's play park - so bring you game. Nearby attractions include the Blyde River Canyon, God's Window and Pilgrims Rest to name a few. For the adrenalin seekers, exciting adventures such as hot air balloon rides, river rafting, quad biking and many more can be arranged. GUESTs may also experience open vehicle day and night safaris in search of Africa's "Big Five" and lesser known "Little Five". ... more less
