I recently spent 2 nights here as part of a business trip and the venue was selected as being convenient to businesses in the south of Johannesburg - road links are great and this proved to be a good location close to major freeways. The hotel is on top of a hill surrounded by indigenous bush and is lovely and... More

We booked to stay here as a romantic treat for my husbands birthday. The reservation staff went out of their way to cater for my every wish. Our room was a luxury upstairs unit.

My sister and I booked a spa experience for the day and it was really a very average experience comparing to other experiences I had before. There is not really a reception area and we had our treatments in a wooden cottage outside. The garden around these cottages are very unimpressive and dry... The treatments I had were nice but...

Outstanding services, the staff is friendly and welcoming. The porters are pro-active and patient. We were welcome by a nice friendly receptionist. I enjoyed the performances at the Kraal but Im not sure if it was a private party because the singer only interacted with a certain group only, but overall it was a very beautiful experience.

One of my favourite places in Joburg. Lovely. Place is well taken care of, rooms are exquisite and the staff is amazing. The game drive was also lovely, we thoroughly enjoyed it and Malcom was an excellent guide.

We stayed two nights in an upstairs unit after a long flight from Australia. It was the perfect location to decompress and get acquainted with South Africa. The room was large and comfortable, located a short walk from the restaurant Kraal. Our breakfasts were delicious and the severs attentive.

Thaba Eco Hotel has recently been voted as the BEST 4 Star hotel in Gauteng at the Lilizela Tourism Awards, and is now also a registered FAIR TRADE tourism certified business.
