The entrance is earth road, quite dusty, and the room was quite old, the shower area was too slippery, my son fell once. I think they must put some mat there for the safety of guests. Everything in the room was like more than 20 years, and even the toilet paper was of bad quality. The gold course itself is... More

We stayed at Hans Merensky's for 3½ days from 7. to 11. March in roms 238 and 240 (later 243). I split my review into 3; Hotel incl. surroundings, staff's service skills and golf course. Hotel: We arrived Monday afternoon to stained towels, seamingly after chlorine has been tried to bleach bloodstains. Tuesday gave us no new towels, because we... More

This place is in a shocking state, the golf course look just terrible the hotel is out dated, over priced and use to be a stunning place. Half built projects around the estate. The golf course are expensive and in the worst condition I have ever seen. Such a pity have great potential.

We had two rooms. Both smelled of a spray used for some type of environmental control. I could hardly breathe. The place is huge (think Las Vegas) and was empty. There are lovely hotels in the town nearby. Please stay in one of those.

Great size room, clean comfortable and huge bathroom with bath and powerful shower. Very accommodating group of management and staff who are reinvigorating it back to where it belongs. A comfortable hotel with good facilities and a golf course that has a myriad of wildlife to spice up your game

I am very disappointed in this "establishment" after seeing their website and comparing the experience I had there. The air conditioner did not work in the room and the temperature was 42 degrees. I wanted to go and swim in the pool and the water was green. I walked to the spa and the pool there was empty. I decided... More

Impressive structure even a little over the top! High ceilings and structures are great but you do still have to clean them.... Found the place to be very friendly and breakfast was fine. Rooms were good although a little dated. But high thatch ceilings need cleaning. Don't like bat poop and cockroaches in my room! Wifi was non existent and... More

This place has the remnants of "a once was luxurious hotel" for the lack of a better word. It is run down and looks like it's not managed at all. The manager is extremely rude, the food is horrible, the service horrible. We had to leave without taking a shower because there was no water and we were only informed... More

This impressive looking hotel has clearly been a top hotel in the past. Unfortunately, one you get passed the entrance, things start to show problems. Room preparation was poor (no soap, shampoo, milk, missing towels etc.). Room door was not lockable. TV was old CRT type (I can't remember staying in a hotel that did not have a flat screen)....

Has the remnants of once being a world class facility but has been neglected by current management. This must rank as one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed at. The hotel grading is a joke to say the least! The service is poor, staff morale is clearly low. The rooms are dirty and dusty, sheets not clean. There... More
