Great scenic view to sleep overnight. Close to Hazyview CBD but still feeling of being in the bush. Rooms are acceptable. Room look and feel old but clean neat and tidy. I would sleep here again. The wifi is easy to connect with which is always good.

The room was clean, but food very poor quality, the staff does not know anything, they suggest a safari and it was not really safari it was just a guy driving around Kruger park, the staff needs training, and thye need to improve the presentation of food, is too expensive for what they offer.

Large, clean room and lovely grounds both during the day and at night. Breakfast packs were more than adequate. We had a la carte dinner the first night then buffet the other two nights, plenty of choices. Offered elephant visit and ride, we don't ride elephants (ethically) and this wasn't pushed on us.

This hotel was nice and clean and close to our safari park. There was a problem with no hot water but the hotel staff sorted that out pretty soon. They had a nice selection of food with great friendly staff. We even saw a hippo pass by while we were at dinner. Not much else to do here apart from... More

Hippo Hollow is a large operation with a hotel and cabins in the grounds. In caters for coach trips and organised tours. The staff manage it all wonderfully. Things run smoothly and it didn't ever feel too busy. The absolute best thing is that hippos were happily grazing on the lawn as we ate our meal one night. Just awesome!
