My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of an overnight stay at Ermelo Inn on Thursday, 11 February and Sunday 21 February 2016. An interesting fact on the hotel is that it was built as the first hotel of the chain hotel group Holiday Inn in South Africa. Mark, the General Manager have a keen interest and true passion...

You have to remember that this hotel is in south Africa and comparing it to others I have stayed in, in the area I would say it was excellent if comparing. The rooms were clean and comfy and more than adequate. I stayed here 7 weeks in total and yes experienced power cuts however the hotel did have a back... More

Ermelo Inn were extremely accommodating with my last minute booking, and upon my arrival they had already learnt my name. The room was clean, spacious and despite the building being old - the furnishing and finishing touches are new and modern. The rooms have aircon and flat screen tv's - a must for me. I do however feel that the... More

I had heard some pretty negative reviews from colleagues who stayed at the Ermelo Inn a few months ago for a training workshop so was apprehensive about staying there. I had heard complaints that the food was not good and that the variety of meats served was very limited. Imagine my surprise when I booked in for a workshop that... More

Of all the places that I've stayed in, this must be the worst of them all. Although the hotel had just been newly refurbished the bad service didn't do it any justice. On arrival we waited for about an hour with inexperienced staff who couldn't find our bookings. We were eventually told that their system was down and that we... More

Not value for money . One or more, sometimes a significant number of guests staying at the property, are a nuisance because of their behavior, Some of these behaviors can include racuousness in common areas, playing loud music or TV, public drunkenness, and prostitution, all while management is apathetic to this activity.
