Our first hotel on our tour of South Africa and a great start. Lovely grounds and the great room ( honeymoon suite) made us fall in love with South Africa on our first day. Location was good and it was quiet which was good for sleeping after a long flight. Ate at the outside bar which was a decent quality....

From the amazing rooms, to the African a la carte restaurant, and spa. It's a hotel which has character and presence through its long existence. Very much recommended. Don't forget that they have an hourly shuttle to monte casino :-)

I only stayed at the Indaba for one night so I really can't speak to all of the amenities, but I left my very expensive camera and sunglasses in the safe. They really went out of their way to get my belongs back to me. I am very appreciative.

Stayed over for a night after a year-end function, and one word comes to mind - tired. Everything just seems tired. Nothing really bad, our bedroom was ok, breakfast was great, and we were on our way. I often attend technical conferences there, and I then get that very same feeling.

Stayed at this hotel on the first night of a tour of S Africa. The hotel is tired and needs a facelift. The staff are friendly and helpful. The food in the Chefs Boma is no more than average.

Stayed here overnight as we had a conference happening at the hotel.
