Superior rooms are spacious and well equipped (no telephone to call reception though). Bathroom really excellent. Perks (coffee, biscuits, water, fruits) well above average. Use of golf carts to move around can be fun but not always easy to manage. Breakfast is abundant.

Two years ago I arrived late evening in Tzaneen not having booked a hotel and came across, purely by road signage, the Fairview I have been visiting it three to four times a year ever since, on my business travels The chalets and surrounding gardens are unbelievable And value for money it would be hard to beat

Spent a couple of nights at the Fairview Hotel and is very pleased. Nice self-catering room and a fully equipped kitchen. Beautiful garden surroundings and even a small golf course on the premises. Friendly staff and good service. The dining area and the bar is beautiful but I'm not impressed by the food. I ordered kingklip but there was no... More

This hotel always offers the best of Tzaneen for me. The Village is always at its best and very executive. The staff are always welcoming and thanks to the gentleman welcoming guests at The Village, he really knows how to make a guest feels very important.

On Monday I went to Tzaneen and I got to spend a night at Fairview hotel. I love this hotel's dining area; it's got a grand piano and unique furniture pieces. Outside this hotel there is a veranda or a ‘stoep’ as we call it in South Africa that has some chairs for one to sit and chill and it... More

I liked the double bedrooms more as they are modern and stylist however the quality of the family rooms did not meet my expectations. The bathrooms of the family units should be revamped and modernized.

This hotel could be fantastic if they paid attention to the small things. The aircon was noisy, the TV didn't work properly - you could only get 2 clear watchable channels and the person on duty could not fix it and did not offer an alternative and the WiFi which I specifically requested did not work. The breakfast was also... More

I stayed there for 5 days and it was a very comfortable and pleasant stay. The room was clean and fresh, the meals were really good and the deck area and bar were very nice to sit and relax in after a hard days work The staff were all very accommodating. The gardens were lovely and some great views.
