Everything was OK except electricity that was swithiching on and off. The quality of the bed was good, the sheets were clean. There were some workers replacing sheets with clean ones daily and also cleaning the room.

Travel for business, one night stay.
I stayed in the executive suite which was nicely decorated and fulfilled all my requirements.
There was free wi-fi but I kept on having to reconnect with the password.
We had a lunch at the restaurant which was very overpriced for what we received and they got order wrong on a toasted sandwich which was very disappointing.
Facilities were well cared for and worth of the 4 star rating.
The breakfast was very good with a wide array of tasty cold and hot dishes available.
All in all a pleasant experience and I would recommend the Tzaneen Country Lodge

I was upgraded to a room with outside shower and jacuzzi (which I didn't have time to use ☺) on check in because the room that was initially allocated was somehow still occupied. The place three swimming pools and that came in handy because the day I stayed there it was too hot and there were more guests, so I could find my way to a less populated pool. The scenery is great, I took an early mining walk in the dedicated hiking trails although the paths are not clearly marked, I ended up walking almost all of them. The food was okay. Measures put in place to combat covid-19 during bearkfast are great. I enjoyed sitting by the pool for supper at night.
That kitchen staff we re vere friendly. And big ups to the reception staff for their effort to get my the best room.

Overall, I loved my stay

The hotel has no customer service at all. Staff can let you sit at the restaurant without any sense of urgency to attend to you. Restaurant food is horrible and cold as if they are using left over food from the previous day. If you need value for money consider other hotels within the area and not Country lodge

On my last day the 22 October 2021, I wanted to leave early at 06:00 and have a take away for the road back to Jhb. I went to the restaurant to request a take way and I was told I was suppose to make arrangements a day before, fair and understandable. I was told by the restaurant there is nothing they can do for me in that regard. I was very disappointed because the lady was already annoyed with me. I travel a lot with my work and this was the first time receiving this treatment, I have stayed in places that were more fancy than TCL, and they will make a plan for us the following morning when we ask for breakfast early. Anyway I left Tzaneen with an empty stomach, I have already informed my office never to use TCL for bookings. Thank you

My sincere apologies for the lack of service you received with regards to the offering of a breakfast pack. I can assure you that this is not standard practice at the Hotel. I do hope that we will have the opportunity to make up for this on your next trip to Tzaneen. Kind regards, Sandra Opperman

Arrived for breakfast around 09H15 on the 25th December only to be told that breakfast ended at 9am. When we asked why at 9 instead of 10 as usual, we were told that because it was the 25th. No one had told us of these changes. We were then promised lunch pack which did not happen.
On 26th we called the restaurant to order room service. Menus never arrived and no one came.
After cleaning our room on the 26th, towels were never replaced. We were left with 1 bath towel. We again called reception to ask for more towels. They never arrived.
Restaurant staff very incompetent. Restaurant was busy during breakfast and they took forever to replenish the food.
Golden is very rude and unprofessional. I witnessed him shouting at a lady trying to serve herself during breakfast. I also had my fair share of his appalling behavior when i asked for an omelette and he dismissively told me to sit down because it was busy and that he will bring it to my table. He never brought it. When I went back he decided that he would put whatever fillings were there without asking me.
Verandas were never cleaned for 3 days. They were extremely dirty. Linen was clean but floors were ashen and sandy.

I live in the Tzaneen area, but I have stayed at the Tzaneen Country Lodge many times, for both leisure and business - it is my go to Hotel in the area for both of these tasks.

TCL has the best buffet breakfast in the area, amazing staff, beautiful (luxury) rooms and amazing surroundings which include a self guided walking safari.

I have taken large groups of people (20+) to the Lodge for both Meals and Accomodation, and I will continue to do so in the future as this place has great hospitality and amenities.

Thanks again for the amazing stay, can't wait to see you guys again!

A group of 8 of us on a motorcycle road trip of the Limpopo Province stayed over for a night in September 2021.

There are various room types available - we had double rooms, triple rooms and a suite. All were very spacious, clean and comfortable, through not really modern.

There is a nice bar and a large restaurant. The food was good but the restaurant service could have been better.

The Reception staff were very helpful and attentive.

Prices were reasonable and the location is great, being outside Tzaneen.

Once again i have enjoyed my stay at TCL. Friendly and efficient staff. Very good food. Clean room. I strongly recommend this as one of the best places to stay when visiting Limpopo Province. Not my first time and Godwillingly not the last.

Good morning Tzaneen Airport is situated 2 kilometers from Tzaneen Country Lodge. Flights are available from Wonderboom Airport in Pretoria and Grand Central Airport in Johannesburg to Tzaneen Airport. I suggest that you contact the Lodge directly for more detailed information. Hope this helps!
