We stayed overnight, however it felt like an entire week. An absolutely beautiful venue, impeccable service! Truly one for your bucket list. Chef Chantel is truly a creative genius, a master chef in the true sense: an authentic, beautiful experience!! We will definitely return!! A PROUDLY SOUTH AFRICAN GEM..

From the moment we drove through the giant entrance doors, we were catapulted into the magical world of the Orient Hotel and a treasure trove of visual delights - rich fabrics, exquisitely carved furniture, the sumptuous comfort of our room; a superb architectural space housing an extensive art collection; lush gardens with birdsong, water features and secret places where one could sit and indulge in a mint tea.. The piece de resistance was dinner at the Mosaic - a gastronomic experience, each dish meticulously choreographed with remarkable detail to charm the eye and the palate, greatly enhanced by the expertise of the sommelier and superb service. The next day - an excellent breakfast - the humble egg, bacon, oats and scones were transformed into culinary masterpieces! Thank you to Mari, Melanie, Chantal and the wonderful staff for an unforgettable experience.

This place in one of a kind. The interior is amazing and to hear that everything was an original was extraordinary. Dinner at the Mosaic was beyond expectations. The staff were friendly and professional. Meeting Chantel was like meeting a celebrity 😀. Mari runs the hotel like a well oiled machine. Not having a reception desk was something to get used to but it was no problem at all as everything in the room was beyond perfect. Our highlight was Moses the Sommelier who made my husband feel like a child in a candy store with his excellent choice of wines. We had a truly memorable time.

The hotel is a short drive outside of Pretoria and the hotel itself boasts an art gallery, beautiful views and amazing food. The attention to detail is astounding and you would be remiss if you did not book dinner at restaurant Mosaic. Did I tell you that the food was amazing? This venue is delightful and perfect for recharging batteries and providing a retreat from the city life.
