The view was the best I chose the junior suite with mountain view . Actual place matched the pictures , House keeping was exceptional the ladies are super friendly and welcoming, reception service was also top Golf cart service top notch too there could be a little improvement in picking up the phones though when requesting a service. We tried the E bar service was amazing. The pool has extremely cold water and it was a bit chilling yesterday it could be better it they have heated pool. Kraal restaurant service overall 8/10 Oscar and Sicelo 10/10 . I feel like buffet pricing is just too much though. Otherwise meal portions at the restaurant are great . Mosdef will come back for the Asian braised beef ribs and your spicy chai latte . Package included mini bar weeeee I did not expect so many wines daily 🤗🤗🤗 will mosdef go back the pricing is worth every cent

The carpets in the room were horribly dirty and old. We had mould growing all over our shower. The aircon hardly worked. The hotel also did not inform us about 2-hours of extremely loud sound testing that they conducted on a Saturday afternoon/evening ahead of an event. Overall it was not possible to have a restful stay at Thaba Eco Hotel. The caliber of other guests coming to the hotel is also deteriorating (especially with non-guests joining for breakfast or dinner). The restaurant did not enforce the smart casual dress code policy to any extent. At least sitting by the pool was nice.

My partner and I booked for my birthday weekend and it was fantastic. We received a warm welcome at the reception. The place is nice and quite. The ebar and the Kraal restaurant gave us the best service. The staff especially at reception and the cart drivers went the extra mile for anything we needed. I will certainly return again for a peaceful relaxed weekend.

I was pleasantly surprised by the friendliness and efficiency of the staff. They were absolutely awesome and friendly, well-spoken and courteous. They would go out of their way to assist their guests, and all the staff that I encountered in their various roles were amazing. I take my hat off to the staff and the owners, the Louw Family, for instilling this great customer ethos into their staff, because this behaviour towards customers filters down from the top. It is difficult to find great customer service today, so thank you for the great experience. It was the staff that made my stay memorable. Keep up the good work guys. Great customer service puts you in the top 1%, and I would gladly return and speak to family and friends about my experience with you.
