Well appointed and equipped hotel. Comfortable room and bed. Excellent breakfast. Friendly staff. The hotel is set in a bird sanctuary and the birds and lake give the feeling of being truly in the country.

When you order oats for room service breakfast, and you receive tomato sauce, mustard and mayonnaise instead of honey with it, all you can say is "what a waste of my money"!. The air conditioner did not work in the bedroom of the suite. After numerous calls to ask for someone to fix it, no one came to fix it....

This hotel has all the makings of a first class venue, particularly if you are going to the cricket at Centurion, which is 10 mins away, if that. The location is idyllic and the rooms are spacious - just need to provide a more consistent level of service in the internal bar and when ordering food, which can be chaotic...

What an amazing experience having a meeting at Irene Country Lodge. From the minute I arrived at the gate I was made to feel like royalty. Cecilia and Maureen were incredible to say the least. Gives one faith in services standards so often lacking.

Excellent hotel with some of the best Staff interaction experienced. Bountiful breakfast choice and room size to name but a few of the benefits of this resort. Wonderful grounds to walk around with nice views at sunrise and sunset. Will definitely return soon.

Love this venue. Had our bi-yearly conference here. Sleep is good and the restaurant is great. Nice and tranquil in the middle of Gauteng. Please take note that with Cornwall Hill College close by, the traffic in Nelmapius gets backed up badly. Add extra 15 min if you travel to airport from here. Staff is also very helpdull

Really shocking service, seems to be a complete disconnect between management and staff, issue being bad management. Rooms are nice and the venue could be 5* but they're let down by attitude issues. Needless to say, won't return. Not even worth addressing with hotel operators, doubtful they'd care.
