Lovely accommodation. Big room with good facilities. This hotel 8s best suited to large groups. The Gin Bar is so far way from reception, and lacks atmosphere. The food, and service was good. It days a few days to find anywhere. On Sunday evening we were ushered to our rooms at 8.30pm as the electricity was to be turned off.

Worst expereicne from start to finish - would not recommend to anyone to stay here. We had no water and were told lie after lie about how it was a municple problem, only for our friends to check a few rooms down and have water, then suddenly the stories changed. We were not even given one bottle of water for the duration of our stay and staff did not seem at all concerned about us and made little to no effort to resolve the matter. On checking out we brought this to the managements attention and their words were "maybe we can invite you for another night to come and have a better stay, but no promises" - why even say something like this? We were then promised a refund and this just never happened and were told lie after lie of when we would receive it. After much threatening we eventially got our refund over a month later. We had to report the matter to Booking.com to even receive a response email from Misty Hills... While I understand issues do occur, the managements handling of this was diusgusting to say the least. the lies, broken promises and total lack of care is shocking. We got the feeling they hoped we would just loose interest in the complaint if they just ignored us and we would let it go... Further to this, the state of the room was very poor. a number of the lights did not work, the aircon works only as a fan (might need a service or re-gassed) and when ordering room service our dirty plates sat outside our room over night from the previous lunch, even though staff had visited our room. I have done alot of traveling and can honestly say, this whole experience has been the worst. The staff should really reconsider how they treat customers who have a bad experience, because lying to customers is not a good route and will not get you return customers.

Response from Recreation Africa, Marketing at Misty Hills Country Hotel
Responded 4 weeks ago
Dear Valued Guest We extend our sincerest apologies for the truly disappointing experience you had during your recent stay at Misty Hills on December 31st. The issues you encountered with the water supply and the room's facilities are deeply concerning, and we completely empathize with your frustration and disappointment. We are genuinely sorry for the miscommunication and the delay in addressing the water issue, causing you inconvenience and distress. Although our team have offered you an alternate room upon your initial report to ensure your comfort, it has not been done promptly, especially considering the wedding. The lack of proper communication and resolution is unacceptable, and we assure you that immediate steps are being taken to address these service deficiencies. We just want to confirm that indeed we had municipal water issues leading to water locks upon depletion of our property's reservoir, however, we do take responsibility for the unresolved lighting and air-conditioning concerns. We deeply regret any confusion caused by conflicting information about the water problem. Your experience does not align with the high standards we aim to uphold. Furthermore, the malfunctioning air conditioner and lights only added to your discomfort, and we sincerely apologize for these additional inconveniences. We completely understand your request for a full refund due to the distressing nature of your stay. We have escalated this matter to our senior management. We are committed to refunding your one night’s stay. Once again, we apologize for the unfortunate events that marred your stay.

Misty Hills Country Hotel is a wonderful place to stay. The thatched-roof bungalows are spacious with lovely interior décor and furniture, and are laid out along many winding brick paths in a lush tropical setting with flowers, shrubs, and trees, some with botanical labels on them. Along the paths are many splendid African art carvings, statues, small flowing brooks, ponds, and beautiful scenic views. The grounds have been meticulously planned and laid out, as have the rooms and buildings on the many acres in this resort. Each room, dining area, meeting room, and the reception area are adorned with African art—sculptures, paintings, and historic artefacts/memorabilia, with windows that look out in to the tropical gardens and trees. The service is first class. The accompanying huge breakfast buffet has dozens of choices of fresh fruit, warm and cold meats, special dishes, cheeses, cereals, and pastries, with several people ready to cook any personal preference you may have, as well as table service in the large dining hall with its African motif surrounding you. Of course, the world-renowned Carnivore restaurant is on the Misty Hills grounds and is a real treat for those who enjoy a meal of game in a festive setting with meat delivered to your table on large skewers. There is also a nice dining room with a good lunch and dinner menu adjacent to the reception area. In every way, this hotel is great and a wonderful experience; we’re from Canada and have returned every time we’re in the Johannesburg area.

I have been to the hotel before but never stayed over so was not sure what to expect. The staff were amazing, especially the front desk. I went on a winter break special and was upgraded for my birthday to an executive suit. Everything was made to feel like I was the only guest there as the staff were always helpful, cheerful. Food for breakfast and dinner which was included was buffet with an option of A La Carte. Breakfast buffet was huge and could set you up for the whole day. I spent my birthday night at the famous Carnivore Restaurant which has to be experienced once in your life or a hundred times. The Maitre D was excellent and asset to the restaurant, greeting me by name as I arrived and the service was again awesome. It is good to see they have kept maintaining the hotel mostly during the slow down of the last few years. I would definitely recommend visiting and staying as long as you can. There is so much to explore in the hotel grounds and surrounding areas. A Very Big Thank You to all the staff for the enjoyable stay from the guy driving the golf buggy, restaurants staff, front desk. See you next year

The hotel and facilities are of top quality unfortunately we as the group we did not enjoy the food at the restaurant next to the Bar. They seem to be not preparing fresh food and have limit choice not catering for those who eat either white meat or red meat at the time. Consider a buffet style of catering.

The worst expérience ever. The hôtel is looking very nice but.... We had a very bad experience. From the restaurant with the staff watching football game on tv and refusing to serve you food, to the room next to the generator with a terrible noise from 6am. The manager on duty being rude and finding excuses blaming our guide instead of trying to find solutions. Housekeeping opening the door at 6.45 to clean the room. I will not write more bécasse I want to enjoy my Last Day in South Africa. Regards OL

On behalf of the Management and everyone who works at Misty Hills Country Hotel, Conference Centre & Spa, we would like to apologize to you for the inconvenience that was caused to you during your stay at our hotel. We want to thank you for taking the time to bring to our attention your experience at our Connexions Restaurant. We have done our investigation and we have found that there was 3 guests watching a football game on the TV and not our staff members and we had 4 staff members running around trying to serve the Kenadora Group whose dinner was cancelled by Kenadora shortly before you arrived, as we were informed that your group were going to eat off site, we did not plan or prepare to have an additional group in for dinner. Therefore we served your group to the best of our ability with what we had on hand that was quick and easy to make. Regarding the Generator, the only thing we can do is to apologise for the noise. The Generator is there to ensure that our guests have a hot bath and coffee before they leave their rooms for breakfast. Please accept our apologies for the rude impression created by the manager on duty I would like to assure you that her first priority was to make sure that you and all other guests were assist in the quickest most professional manner. Our Housekeeper assured us that they did not send any staff member to go and clean your room, as our team only starts working at 7:30 am. We constantly ensuring that improvements are being made in the various departments and further development training is being done with our team. We appreciate your feedback and we definitely value your business and wish to retain you as a customer for years to come.

The room I was in was poorly. It was set up for people that are 6foot7 at least. Sitting in front of the mirror I could not see my face. The towel/clothes hook was way out of reach (and I am not that short). A list of available TV channels will be appreciated. The one highlight of this stay is the staff. Very friendly and extremely helpful. We'll done to all the staff.

My wife and I always look forward to our breaks at Misty Hills Country Hotel, Conference Centre & Spa. Let me start of by saying that the Carnivore Restaurant experience is second to none. Besides the variety of the exotic meats available, the service is exceptional. Welcome. Sylvester, Mr Dawa and Melody and Mandla (now promoted) always makes our experience full of memories and we will continue to visit for many years to come. This being our Wedding Anniversary weekend, it was made even more special by the Reception Staff who prepared our room so beautifully. I cannot however say the same for the Gin Box…. On Saturday afternoon (11TH March 2023), after a relaxing visit to the Spa for treatments, we decided that the Gin Box will be our haven where we could relax , have lunch and me being an avid football fan watch a game of English Football on the telly. Alas, how I was mistaken. I approached the Gin Box manager to change the channel on the telly to English Premier League (EPL) sand I was informed that they were instructed not to change the channels and only the GM could change. I asked if he could go and arrange. He duly made his way to Reception and after some time I queried his whereabouts, and he came through and advised that the GM could not be found. I then made my way to Reception and was met by the Duty Manager who after I vented my frustrated advised that this was not the case and that the channel could be changed. I made my way back to Gin Box and by then the match that I wanted to watch had already started. I asked for the Manager again and after some time I was met by someone who introduced himself as the most senior person on site, at the moment, the F&B Manager. He attitude and demeanour was quite condescending and he advised that there was nothing he could do as there was a hotel package installed and the channel could not be changed. I informed him that I had sat here, at the Gin Box, previously and watched EPL. He shrugged that comment off and was about to make his way, when I informed him that I was going to escalated to a higher authority. With a no care look on his face he advised that I could proceed and the impression that I got was that he didn’t care because he knew nothing will be done about my concerns. I calmed myself down (my wife did actually) and we had lunch and then made our way to the accommodation where I watch the remainder of the match on my phone. The staff at Gin Box and your F&B Manager need to take out a page from Carnivore’s current and ex staff on how customers need to be treated and taken care off even if issues are not resolved. Maybe some sort of training sessions so that the Carnivore guys attitudes and skills can rub off to the rest.

Thank you for taking the time to share you experience with us. Allow me to express my appreciation to you and Mrs Baliram for your continued support and patronage over many years. Of course Misty Hills would never have been what it is today without support from guests such as yourselves. It is true that you recall, in the past, that the manager at the Gin Box were able to change the channels on the television, unfortunately always to the detriment of all the other guests in the hotel, because by doing so, this action changes all the channels in every room. On a corporate DSTV package we are only allowed a set amount of channels, and if they were to be changed, one has to trade off one channel for another. Believe me that prohibiting my staff to change the channels causes far less problems and unhappy guests than allowing them to change it. It is only with the best intentions that we set policies at our hotel, and these policies are always to best accommodate our guests. We understand that happy guests, that enjoy their stay, will return and promote our business to others, and based on this principle we were able to keep our business open for 30 years. I believe firmly that its not what we do, but how we do it that create the magic and make our guest’s stay memorable. Please accept my apology for creating this negative impression with you during your last stay. I want to assure you that my team and I will remain committed to offering world class standards by staying “guest centered”. We aspire to keep improving and exceeding all guest expectations. It’s a simple task to impress one guest and meet their expectation, it takes a extraordinary team to meet the expectations of all its hotel guests. Hopefully in our quest for excellence we will find solutions to some of the challenges that we continue to face. I want to acknowledge your appreciation for the staff at Carnivore and Reception. It is always encouraging to the staff when they receive compliments such as yours, and I will ensure they receive tis feedback. Please let us know if there is anything else, no matter how small that we could improve to enhance your next stay with us. We look forward to hearing from you and to welcome you back home at your next special occasion.
