We came here for our last breakfast in South Africa before returning to Scotland it was out of this world. thinking of getting married here in 2018. The views are amazing, love the little church and my son loved the play park and the animals roaming freely is definitely a plus

I attended a conference at thaba eco hotel this past weekend and it was a tranquil setting which fit the vibes of the conference. Check in was quick and efficient and golf carts to shuttle you to your room are provided. A late check out was requested with a surcharge of R1000. The room itself was too beautiful for words....

Perfect service, Professional Staff, Friendly actually extremely friendly staff. TIP: sort out the prawns. Thaba Staff go out of their way to ensure that clients have a perfect stay. Bookings are easy and done on the spot, I actually booked on the day of arrival and everything was on point regardless of the short notice

A very pleasant stay in very tranquil surroundings. The rooms are cavernous, nicely furnished and well equipped. The staff are friendly and helpful and the Spa treatments were good. The Restuarant however needed some help with their service, we waited ages for our food but then the food was really good when it eventually arrived. Highly recommended!

I had a great time at Thaba Eco Hotel. This is by far the most beautiful and tranquil Hotel I have had the pleasure of being a guest in. I look forward to going back again. The staff was very friendly, rooms were clean and well furnished. The complimentary bar fridge was very pleasant.

This was our first stop on a ten day trip to South Africa. We arranged to be picked up from the airport, which was fantastic, as I'm pretty sure I would not have adjusted well to driving through insane traffic after dark on the left-hand side of the road after a 16 hour non-stop flight. The grounds were spectacularly beautiful,... More

This was my first visit but it won't be the last. The setting was beautiful. Thaba sits atop a hill, surrounded by large trees that give one the impression of being far out of town. When in fact it is very close to the city. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and very well kept. We dined in the sunroom. There... More
