“Relaxing”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

My sister and I decided to get away and relax. The beauty about Kievits Kroon is that you do not have to drive far yet the moment you drive into the gates you feel as though you have escaped into another world of relaxation and tranquility. We were welcomed with a cocktail and very friendly staff. The Cape Dutch architecture and beautiful gardens add to the surroundings.

Stayed overnight here at a two day conference. The conferencing facilities were good, except for VERY bad WiFi, which I consider an essential for a good conferencing facility. Food and rooms were ok. The gardens and general surroundings were beautiful. The bar and terrace were really nice, as was the pool. Easy to access from Pretoria or Joburg.

Dear dianainspace

I'd like to apologise for the slow Wi-Fi connectivity which you experienced at your conference.

This is the feedback from our IT Manager Mpho Mufamadi:

"We have four 4Mbps ADSL lines, bonded by a Vox Datapro Fishbone router which makes it virtually a 16Mbps line. These lines are run from Telkom copper cables which are constantly being stolen. When this happens, as it did recently, we rely on our backup line, which is a 1Mbps fiber-optic line, and is not as fast as the 4 ADSL lines.

We are, however, working on a plan to move away from copper cables and add both a microwave and an upgraded fibre line. Both options will exceed the current ADSL speed, and give guests a much faster internet connectivity.

The fiber upgrade is underway and the microwave will be completed by end January 2013."

Kind regards

Very tranquil surroundings, nice atmosphere, and excellent dining. Complained about being given a room that was not cleaned or serviced yet (well after check-in time), and a very noisy service door which kept banging all night long disturbing our sleep, amongst a few other below-par experiences. We were asked to fill in lengthy questionaires, but nobody from management bothered to contact us or apologise for the problems. The Restaurant (where we had the 'Wine Pairing menu') is very sparsely decorated and lacks atmosphere, but the food more than made up for that. For the price, I expected a better room and management attitude for a 5* establishment, but I was very impressed with the dining.

Room Tip: Away from service doors!

We had booked the "Spring True Romance" package to celebrate our anniversary. On our arrival we could clearly see that the bar staff member could not handle all the guests' requests. He got irritated with us and our cocktails didn't seem to have any alcohol in (maybe because it was free?). The spa treatment was odd because we had specifically asked for attention to feet; both therapists barely even touched our feet and the therapist who treated my husband couldn't give him a firm enough massage. On the other hand I can just say that the spa is very well kept. The buffet dinner was just another buffet and very average. Besides this, the hotel and its grounds are very beautiful. I still don't understand why they asked us when making a reservation "what is the occassion?" because we didn't get anything special. The whole experience was actually very disappointing.

Spent the night at Kievits Kroon with my family. We booked the Gastronomy package which includes a 6-course meal and wine pairing. This is my 2nd stay. Could not fault anything. The meal experience was fantastic - way better than the buffet dinner we had previous stay. Highly recommend going for A-la-carte menu. Food was spectacular, staff super-efficient and all in in another wonderful relaxing stay.

My partner and I had the great pleasure of spending an evening and were absolutely spoilt. The room was immaculate and catered to all the needs that you may have, large shower, large bath, super comfortable bed and good channel selection on the TV, unlike many other hotels they provide free wifi. We partook in the food and wine pairing in the "Granita" restaurant and can absolutely recommend this to anyone. The food was excellently prepared and paired well with "healthy" servings of great wine. The service from all the staff at dinner was also extraordinary, our thanks to the Maitre'D and his team. Special mention needs to be made of the Rooms Division Manager, Nathi, his attention to any queries raised by myself or my partner was super. He dealt with these in an expedient and efficient manner, always being a perfect host; he is a true asset to this establishment. Thank you, Kievitskroon for an excellent stay.
