What our guests have to say about fairview

Exceptional hotel

Room excellent, food was the best we have had in South Africa. Some of the staff excellent at their job but were also very friendly and amusing I felt I was smiling all the time. Could not really find fault with this excellent hotel if you are going to South Africa definitely worth going to this area and staying at this hotel. We will definitely be going back

Excellence in service

Impressive atmosphere and surroundings with unspoiled beauty. It's home away from home and a number one destination in the Lowveld. The preservation of the environment makes this destination a sort after facility. The village gives you a wonderful and tranquil environment for resting.

Stunning Place to get away

This is a stunning way to get away from your busy schedule. The setting is beautiful, and you don't even realise that you are near a large city. It is peaceful and really relaxing. The chalets are really spacious and beautifully set out with self-catering facilities. This is really a must.

The forest in the small city

Excellent accommodation for a business function with a golf course and spa to boost. Pity we could not avail of all the facilities as our stay was too short. Real neat and tidy and I must make special mention of the fresh smell of the linen in the room, made me long for home!

Great Conference, Fantastic Venue

We recently held a 1-week event at the Fairview Hotel that had 83 participants representing 11 countries. We booked the entire hotel and had all meals catered by the hotel. The accommodations were spotless and in good order. The food was excellent and served in a timely manner. We had buffet service for the meals except for a plated meal on Thursday. All good. The chef accommodated several participants that had special dietary needs; no complaints! We also had a social on 3 of the afternoons to accompany a poster session. These were well staffed and provided good finger foods. The meeting room was comfortable with good acoustics and the sound system gave good coverage for the entire room. The Wi-Fi was good although spotty in some places on the premises. I have stayed at Fairview before and the hotel made a noticeable effort to beef up the coverage for this event. Finally, enough cannot be said about the staff at the venue. Everyone was friendly, courteous and went out of their way to accommodate special needs. Several participants had missing luggage and the hotel even provided t-shirts for them to use until their luggage appeared. Overall a great experience and as the meeting coordinator I did not receive a single negative comment from the participants.

The hotel well located

The hotel is well located, just off the main national road and therefore easily accessible. The landscaping is refreshing, complemented by a well-kept golf course. the Spa well placed and self-contained, conveniently away from the two main hotels. What an ideal place to chill in the bush yet in town. This will not be my last visit.

The View not the only Fair bit at Fairview.

From the moment I walked into the reception area I felt I had arrived somewhere where my presence as a guest mattered. I stayed in the beautifully appointed 5-star Village on the far side of the par 3 Fairview golf course. The tastefully decorated suite offers wonderful luxury extras like an espresso machine, electric blanket as well as a private balcony from where one hears the rush of the Great Letaba river down below. The double volume of the suite adds to the joy of staying in this sanctuary. The impeccable bathroom epitomises space and luxe with its jumbo shower, jet bath, heated towel rails and small persian rugs in lieu of normal bath mats. Fluffy gowns, slippers, fresh flowers and fruit and nightly turn-down service add the touch that makes a hotel guest feel like a family member. The Village butler, Kevin, made me feel ever so cared for, from offering to bring me a welcome drink to arranging to take me by golf cart to and from dinner at the cozy Le'Thaba restaurant at the hotel. The Zen Spa and Rasul is situated right next to the Village to tempt any sensible guest into succumbing to a treatment. Friendly, efficient staff service, stylish décor, lush Limpopo lowveld gardens and the happy honks of hippos cavorting in the river made for an experience that made it very hard for me to leave Fairview Hotel & Village a mere day later. I will most certainly be back if life allows for the privilege!

Room Tip: Room 10 in the Village invites the sound of the rushing river right into the room, which I loved.
