My fiancé and I spent a lovely evening at Maropeng last weekend – the view from the bedroom really is fantastic! The setting and style of the hotel are superb – modern but still with an African flavour. The staff were super friendly and attentive, and helped us set up the Wi-Fi in our room (which is free).
We only have two points of concern:
1. There really aren’t any ‘pop in’ restaurants in the area, or even shops for that matter, so dining has to be done in the hotel restaurant. The food is good but not fantastic and you have to order the set menu that is a full 3 courses. We really would have liked an option to just order one light meal.
2. All the rooms are built on the edge of a hill for the view, but there is an unofficial pedestrian path that passes right in front of the rooms. We would suggest closing it off to maintain the privacy of the suites.
We had done the evolution tour at the Visitor Center before and really enjoyed it (but wouldn’t necessarily do it twice).
The fact that the hotel is less than an hour from Johannesburg and part of the Magalies Meander makes it the perfect weekend getaway.More
