10/10 Exceptional

The property is fantastic. It is a classic vintage hotel property that reminds you of a another era but is maintained in 5 star condition. Highly recommend. The staff and dining were excellent. The only slight negative is the approach road is unpaved and a bit rough but not so bad as to deter one from staying here and enjoying an exceptional experience.

8/10 Very good

Must admit that we had expected more. Although service was very good. Room was spacious with very comfortable bed. But overal it was somewhat outdated and it didn’t feel like we were in SA but more at a traditional country house in England. Also we didn’t have a private plunge pool as said on the booking. Because there where only a view guests, we sometimes felt a bit uncomfortable.

Outstanding Hidden Getaway
An astonishing gem hidden away. Completely private, outstanding service and standards. Private lodes set in beautiful grounds, absolutely fantastic 2 day stay of outstanding luxury and peacefulness after a two week bush safari.

Great Luxury - Affordable Prices
This was a wonderful stay. Location was relatively close to Kruger Park and Sabi Sands where we ended up going to after here. Close to Hoedspruit for ballooning and Blyde Canyon sights and waterfalls. Very close to Elephant Whispers. Should have own or arranged transportation to fully take care of the location. Would most definitely stay here again if in the area. Pros: Beautiful rooms done in a more classical style Very friendly staff Our package included both breakfast and dinners. Food very well done. Selections are cooked to order from menu. Dinner was a five-course meal. Very beautiful grounds. Cons: It is about 8 miles from Hazy view but is on Google Maps so we had no problems getting there. You must travel half a mile? On a well maintained dirt road which most cars should be able to handle.

6/10 Good

5* boutique hotel with 1*manager
A major concern - the attitude and skillset of the manager. We have traveled across 5 continents, usually staying at 4* or 5* facilities in recent decades. . Full review is on tripadviser. There are positives and more details 1. Hotel driver showed up 40 minutes late. 2.No welcome drink was offered as specified in the reservation 3. Were given a garden room, NOT the orchard room we had reserved. 4. At dinner, the manager told us it would be better for us to leave at 9 am. Then she said we would have to pay an extra R574 for the 11am departure, DOUBLE the rate quoted.

Perfect weekend away
Everything about our stay was perfect. Fantastic service and great food combined with a superbly comfortable and well appointed suite. The location of Highgrove just accentuates the Hotel's splendour. Highly recommended for a romantic r&r getaway.
