“functional and decent value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

the hotel is located on the main road that bisects hazyview. So it lacks the country lodge atmosphere that many hazyview hotels can boast. However there are nice lush gardens around the hotel so this helps hide the big road. Conveniently, theres a full service tourist booking office on site, so if your trip to kruger is a short one, you can do all your park and other bookings there and save time. The room was spacious and comfortable. But the tv channels are limited to only a few local ones, no intl news or programmes. The hotel restaurant serves only a set menu that differs nightly, and there are seafood and butchery restaurants in the attached complex. The hotel was functional and convenient which was ok for a short two night stay. If i were in the area longer though, id prefer one of the secluded lodge and spa properties that are all located a bit further afield from the main hazyview town.

Room Tip: Try a room not facing road side

This grand old but beuatifully restored hotel provides all the comfort and needs for a perfect stay close to the Kruger National Park and Panoramic Route. The service is great, the food of high standard and the rooms lovely (espesially the end ones for families). The garden suites are more private with enough space to be comfortable.

Room Tip: Garden suites is lovely and the family rooms at the end of the passage very comfortable.

We travelled from Australia and stayed for 5 days in this wonderful hotel, so beautifully laid out with huge beautiful bedroom and wonderfully comfortable bed. It was so close and convenient to all the places we wanted to visit including Kruger National Park and the staff were so friendly and co-operative in making us feel AT HOME and advising us where to go and how to get, which was one of our worries having heard a few bad stories about travelling in Africa, but which couldn't be more from the truth, as we had a very relaxing time doing it. The food was magnificent especially in their Steak restaurant just away from the main hotel to help us enjoy the most wonderful place we've ever stayed in!!

We used the camping ground as our base for the lowveld. The campsite is great, with grass and enough trees. the newly renovated ablutions were great, in some aspects better than some of the hotels that I have stayed in.
The property is ideally situated to town, Kruger Park and the Panoramic Route.

Apart from some fool pitching his tent on our doorstep, we thoroughly enjoyed our time here and will definitely return.

Thank you for taking the time to review our Caravan Park at Hotel Numbi & Garden Suites. We recently upgraded both the ladies and the gents ablution facilities and are very happy that you found them to your liking.

We are sorry that another camper was inconsiderate and pitched their tent on your doorstep – we are in the process of demarcating and in the future allocating stands to avoid this happening again.

We are looking forward to welcoming you back again in the very near future.

At a glance hotel has very good impression due to its beautiful garden, parking place and entrance. However I encountered few issues during my stay. When I had read the negative reviews in Tripadvisor, I did not want to consider but I faced with some of them.

When we first entered the room, there was a distinct smell which irritates you little bit at the beginning. In the room there are no fridge and safe which I find as an issue. When I took shower, unfortunately hot water was not consistent. I had to take shower in warm water. During our sleep, there was a noise coming from the wall next to me and I hardly fell asleep. I didn't inform anyone about these issues. Maybe they could have solved them, I don't know.

Lastly, breakfast was good enough and enjoyed it. Internet is for free and coverage exist in the lobby only. Most probably I look for other options, if I stay in Hazyview again.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and for the compliments on our beautiful gardens, we will pass on your compliments to our Gardening and Maintenance Team.

What a terrible pity that you didn’t bring any of your issues to the attention to either the reception or any member of the management team during your stay with us.

Had we been notified of any issues that you may have had with the accommodation, we would have done our very best to accommodate you in a different room type at no extra cost to you. We are very sorry to hear about the hot water situation and apologise for any inconvenience caused in this regard.

Regarding our WIFI – there is ‘paid WIFI’ available in all of the hotel rooms, our complimentary WIFI extends to the business area of the hotel only. We find that most guests are very happy with not having to pay for WIFI and honestly this has never been an issue in the past, but is something that we will consider in the future.

We trust that you enjoyed the rest of your time in the Lowveld and we hope to welcome you to Hotel Numbi in the very near future.

Kind Regards,

Stayed for a seminar. Rooms OK, service great, food - outstanding - don't miss! Staff and management - extremely friendly, open and helpful. Thank you guys very much. Located walking distance from a shopping mall, but all is quiet and secure. Booked at the front-desk an overnight safari trip to the Kruger. Amazing!!!! Got absolutely the BEST ranger as guide!!!! If you are considering a visit to the Park - do it through Numbi!!!

Dear Sasha,

Thank you for taking the time to review Hotel Numbi & Garden Suites. It was a pleasure hosting yourself and the Professor as part of the Russian Delegation for the BRICS Inaugural Seminar. We were happy to assist with the booking of your overnight Safari into the Kruger National Park, we know that it was a very exciting trip. As discussed with Michelle, we are looking forward to hosting yourself and your family in the very near future. It will be our pleasure to once again assist you with your bookings into the Kruger National Park.
