We recently stayed for 3 nights at Haighgrove House and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The setting is very peaceful, the rooms were comfortable and the food was superb. The staff were friendly and non-intrusive. A wonderful interlude before going on to safari.

I can only speak as we experienced and I note that most people had an excellent experience, but we just felt it was not up to 5 star luxury. We came here after safari in Sabi Sands to relax and refresh. The hotel is tucked away in beautiful grounds and is a haven of peace and tranquility. We were in... More

Hidden in a beautiful, hilly scenery of forests and agricultural land about 1 mile from the main road from Hazyview to White River, this classic, victorian stylish boutique hotel offers much more than a room to sleep.

This was a wonderful stay. Location was relatively close to Krugar 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.

We stopped in for just one night en route to Timbavati game reserve and were bowled over by the characterful charm of this sympathetically refurbed old farm house. The setting is exquisite and our family suite massive with a separate lounge, balcony (veranda), huge en-suite with an outdoor shower. Food was outstanding. I have no hesitation giving a 5* rating...
