“Great Escape For Couples”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

We spent a wonderful evening at Kievits Kroon. The layout of the estate and the facilities are remarkable. The atmosphere is relaxed and you are well cared for by the staff. The selection of food and beverage is great and well priced; service can at times be a bit slow. Both the breakfast buffet and dinner in Granita is fabulous, quality on both accounts is great. We recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to escape from the city. Oh, just a word of caution, no kids under 14 allowed, great for some hindrance for others.

Your review is greatly appreciated and it's rewarding to see that you recognise Kievits Kroon for all the things we want it to be - relaxed attitude, caring staff and fabulous food. I have noted your point about slightly slow service. We are constantly working to improve this. Our child policy is in place because we want couples to be able to get away from all chilcren, not just their own!

I enjoyed one night and a day in the spa- what great facilities, relaxing atmosphere and very helpful staff. The buffet dinner and breakfast was an eat your heart out affair with pretty much anything you can think of on the menu. I would definately go back.

I had a wonderful weekend out with my husband. The service was consistent and the staff were gracious at all times. we booked a spa package with a gourmet lunch - it was devine. I was impressed by both the menu and presentation of the menu. Will definitely return.

Our company had a year end function at Kievits Kroon and all 50 guests stayed over night.Very nice setting, with upgraded security since the honeymoon suite shooting incident of 2007.The rooms were up to standard.However few mood spoilers really left a bitter taste. The food was mediocre with very small portions and most of the guests were still hungry after dinner. During the function our company's camera went missing from one of the tables.Furthermore, the Barmen were on the take. Not ringing up all transactions and offering drinks after the till was closed for a cash reward.In the morning of check out we found that some of our equipment got stollen from the venue. All lost/stolen items were reported in the morning post our event to the staff on duty. Two months post the event we have received a very short and careless response from one of the managers to say that they have not retrieved any of the missing goods.

My husband and I stayed here for the weekend for our anniversary with the true romance package. We had an amazing time!! Kievits Kroon is an amazing place to stay. The spa is beautiful and all the treatments were all great. We had delicious food the entire weekend (had a gourmet picnic, buffet dinner at Kingsley's, buffet breakfast at Kingsley's and lunch at Granita).

The staff are all friendly and helpful and nothing is too much to ask.

We will definitely be back again!

Following a previous visit which was below par, I was very pleased that management took note of the issues that I had raised, and that they addressed them. We had a return visit in Sept. 2012 and we experienced Kievitskroon as it should be. Everything was just perfect - the food was again "absolutely superb", the room was quiet and tastefully furnished, and very private down in the bottom corner of the estate. The staff were friendly and attentive throughout. The gardens were magnificent. Kievitskroon is certainly a 'spoil destination' that we will re-visit .. only next time it will be for a minimum of a 2 night stay so that there is enough time to enjoy the spa, pool and gardens. In my opinion, based on the last visit, Kievitskroon is the top destination for a relaxing indulgent week-end in the Pretoria area. Well done to Mr Schutte and staff!

Room Tip: We enjoyed having a room down in the bottom corner of the estate - it's very private and peacef...

Kievitskroon is a secluded oasis of calm, luxury and enjoyment. Although I was here for only 2 nights on a business trip, my stay was extremely pleasant. The conference facilities are top-class, the food is delicious & the service is excellent.
I stayed in a lovely room, with an extremely comfortable double bed, en-suite with modern fittings (bath & shower) & also DSTV included. There were some problems with the wi-fi, as the room was a bit far away from the hotspot. Therefore, I'd recommend that people choose a room closer to reception or the main area/restaurant if Internet is required. As it is also a spa, guests are allowed to use the spa facilities at certain times - which makes the stay even more enjoyable.
I would definitely recommend the continental room service breakfast - it is absolutely top-class & the staff really go out of their way to please.
Overall, a definite must for business events & luxurious escapes.

Room Tip: Choose rooms closer to reception/main area for better wi-fi connection.

I’m delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us so much. Thank you for taking the time to share your good experience on TripAdvisor. With regards to the Wi-Fi, since your stay in May, we have implemented a programme to install newer access points in all the rooms. This will be complete by the end of the month. I think that you will find the connection much improved when you visit us again.
