Great Breakfast, spectacular views and gorgeous rooms. 3 nights was not enough at this beautiful hotel - hope I get to go back at some point. The Spa was sensational as well with excellent staff. In room fireplace and underfloor heating for winter was the perfect touch.

Beautiful accommodation and surroundings. A must for all. You won't be disappointed. If you're a Gholfer this course will challenge you and the beauty of the surroundings even makes up for a bad round of gholf.

I am a traveling performer and had the privilege to stay at Simola Hotel for a birthday bash I performed at, the accommodation is amazing with a incredible view and the service is phenomenal. The Executive suite i had more then i could have expected with a luxurious bathroom, big open patio, modern finishes and offers free access to the pool, spa, gym and a complimentary breakfast. And the booking rates are well worth it for anyone who would like a weekend away!

First time visit to Simola Hotel. As "first impressions last", is the words widely used, I must say those words seem to hit the nail right on its head. Firstly, making my reservation with Tracey was a breeze, and done in a true courteous manner. Secondly, being there for the Simola Hillclimb event was to be exiting beyond believe. Unbelievable beauty, serenity, and a tranquil experience of note, with the first glance of a peace of heaven. Hospitality is of high standards,as expected, and friendliness is second to none. Service delivery is prompt, efficient, and dealt with professionalism of a high standard. Suites are very well equiped, and well maintained. Luxury accomodation would be the propper description, and sits well with the feeling when you first enter the property. Food and beverage is presented in a manner fit for a king, with a buffet breakfast seeking to entice a vegetarian, to a vegan, to a outragiously hungry gastronome. From all wildlife, natures beauty, the true feeling of relaxation, and the fulfillment of one's dreams and expectations, Simola Hotel is a must for lovers of pampering and pleasure to pure bliss! Greetings to all. Yours friendly. Werner O'Linsky

ALWAYS LOVE IT! Breakfast must improve and Restaurant must be holiday friendly. You can’t chase customers at 10H30am. I hope that experience never repeat again!!! I didn’t like seeing that the next day a white man came in just after 10H30am and suddenly the Restaurant doesn’t close at their 10H30am anymore🤷‍♂️

Response from Roxanne Marais, General Manager at Simola Hotel Country Club & Spa
Responded 07 May 2022
Dear glen200, Our warmest greetings from Simola Hotel, Country Club and Spa. It was really wonderful to welcome you back to Simola once again and is always our absolute pleasure having you as our guest. Thank you for taking the time to send us such your review of your time at Simola. Your feedback is important to us. As per my phone call discussion with you after breakfast, our guests experience is our no. 1 priority. Our Simola Buffet Breakfast has always been available from 7h30am to 10h30am. We open our second restaurant The Club House at 10h30am, and our Hotel check-out time is 11am. We advertise the breakfast times in all our email correspondence prior to your arrival, at the check-in desk, in the personalized welcome letter that you receive on arrival, as well as the in-room directory which is placed next to your phone in your Suite. I mentioned to you on the phone that we would gladly keep breakfast open a few minutes later the following day for you - which we did. I assure you we did not keep breakfast open later because of anyone else. Our Guests are very important to us. We kindly ask that you email or phone the Hotel directly so we may resolve your concerns offline, rather than on social media - which can have a devastating effect on a company that takes immense pride in our guests experience. On behalf of our Simola Family, we sincerely look forward to welcoming you Home to our Hotel again very soon. Kindest regards, Roxanne Marais

Super hotel, bar, restaurant and golf course. The views from the bar terrace are amazing at any time of day. The food was very good, be it breakfast or a bar meal later on. The unit I stayed in had a separate lounge and bedroom - great kitchen and dining experience (including a braii area)
