“Happiness”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2012

In general fancy hotels aren't my scene, and I understand all the negative comments written next to this box I'm filling in. This place tries to be fancy but doesn't quite get it right. You can pretend you're in the Cape, but you'll keep being reminded you're on a plot north of Pretoria.

But saying that, my wife was very happy with this as a anniversary thingy. They made her feel special and that's great. I don't care for buildings and food - I can get those at home. I care that you made an effort to make a girl happy.

Well done.

And I like plots. Even north of Pretoria.

Room Tip: If you're worried about the room, you're doing it wrong.

My daugther and I celebrated our birthdays with a lunch and Spa package! Service was friendly, professional and attentive. The food was amazing, with a great variety on the menu. I especially enjoyed the innitiative of a "glass of wine" assigned to every dish (should you wish to have it). The Spa was clean and tranquil, the treatments fantastic! Overall a great experience that was very good value for money!!

Travelling with a group of 135+ people is no mean fit, it's stuff nightmares are made of, but the team at this establishment really went out of their way to make the experience as smooth as possible.

It was a 3-day conference They managed our check in by bringing the "check-in desk" to us after our teambuilding, so there was no chaos of people crowding reception area. The rooms where clean, beds crisp and well airconditioned. Signage around the propert also up to date to make finding different rooms easy.

I particulary liked the use of the golf cart cause running around the property could get challenging. Every morning it made our day flow to have a briefing session and go through the events of the day with our conference host. So everyone is on the same page, the fact that the host was available on cellphone really helped to make it easy to get hold of them.

The food was delicious, courteous staff, lovely and well kept property.

We had a wonderful first impression of the hotel with the well kept grounds, friendly staff and comfortable rooms. Unfortunately we left feeling rather disappointed with the experience. We had a couples spa treatment where we received different treatments from those we had booked and during which my therapist started falling asleep. This unfortunately did not make me feel very relaxed. The staff were however very friendly and helpful. The buffet dinner was average, however the service with regards to drinks was very slow. We also got an unpleasant surprise when the drinks bill arrived as we had apparently ordered something not on their list (this is a very normal request at all other restaurants we have eaten at). The waitress did not inform us of this fact when we ordered. On getting back from the trip, I wrote an e-mail detailing my experience and to date have not received a response. This is perhaps the most diappointing experience from this very highly rated establishment.

Was a bit disappointed with the whole experience. Not enough staff to handle all the guests. My room was only ready for check-in more than an hour late (after 15:00). Check-out was also very unorganized. Has a very commercialized feel to it. Spa treatment and food was very average. The one good thing is that it is very beautiful and well kept.

Lovely hotel and complex. Cape Dutch style. Gorgeous quiet retreat with not an awful lot to do except fine dine, spa, swim and relax ! Superb place for a little quiet retreat not far from Johannesburg. nice dinner options and lovely patio to sit out on next to the "library". Lovely pool bar and the spa is outstanding ...... see it for yourself ! We stayed in the executive room which was really lovely :o) Fantastic venue for some "me" time !

My husband and I have been going to Kievits Kroon every year for our anniversary. The gourmet 5 course dinner is really excellent and the service is superb. The accommodation is also great and you really feel like you are away from the city. We are always made to feel special on our anniversary with a few special personal touches from the staff. We will definitely gkeep going back - I highly recommend the gourmet package at Kievits Kroon

Room Tip: The luxury rooms have a patio with chairs and a private view
