Are you looking for an idyllic country hotel in the heart of the magnificent Mpumalanga Lowveld? A haven from the hustle and bustle of city life where holiday makers can base themselves as they enjoy the scenic wonders this area has to offer and experience the abundant wildlife in the Kruger National Park? A venue where business people can escape to the solitude of a conference in the country, away from the constant interruptions of the office, but with numerous leisure activities on their doorstep? Then look no further than the Buffalo Hotel, situated in the small town of Hectorspruit, on the southern border of The Kruger National Park in South Africa. Our hotel, established in 1923, is a true landmark of the Lowveld. We are obsessed with guest relations and customer service, while offering the unique experience of staying in a relatively small, family owned and run hotel. We pride ourselves in knowing our guests by name and providing an unsurpassed level of personal service. We have the ability to comfortably sleep 50 guests in our well-appointed, air-conditioned rooms, each with complimentary Wi-Fi access. We are ideally situated between the two southern gates of the Kruger National Park (Crocodile Bridge and Malelane Gate) and we have Mozambique and Swaziland on our doorstep, offering you the ability to explore the surrounding areas with ease from your comfortable country base, without having to travel excessive distances. On this note, our Travel Desk offers a variety of different in-house experiences including, but not limited to, full day Kruger National Park safaris, cultural and historical day tours to Swaziland and Mozambique, scenic day tours to the Blyde River Canyon as well as a variety of transfer services to and from the various airports in the region. Whether you are away from the Hotel on an excursion or spending a relaxing day in-house, we have a variety of facilities available, ranging from our heated swimming pool to our on-site gym and complimentary Wi-Fi access in all public areas of the Hotel. There is fun for the whole family with our new Putt-Putt course and we have a jumping castle and splash pools to entertain the kids. We also have a fully licensed bar and an open air restaurant on our premises with an exciting and varied menu. We offer a full inclusive events service and can arrange any type of function from conferences to corporate functions, weddings and year end functions with a choice of indoor and outdoor venues. Whether you wish to unwind for a few days or run a business conference at a unique venue, we always strive to exceed your expectations.

The very BEST service from staff, especially Christine. I recommend it for anyone requiring me and chill out time with family and friends. Their amenities, facilities and rooms are something you can write home about

We will defiantly not recommend. Service was non existent, had to phone to try find a receptionist on arrival! Room was defiantly not to standard, room door did not lock properly. Bathroom was atrocious. Gate to the parking did not work. Noisy neighbors at all hours. and no one around to address issues. Staff more interested in assisting locals! Will defiantly not be back, or recommend.

We had a bad experience in the Buffalo hotel. What we saw when we arrived was not the same as what appears in the website. We cut our stay short and requested a refund. By 08 January, we are still waiting for refund. The rooms were dirty, furniture dusty I had to clean on first night before we settle in. Outside is not well kept.

We had a great time in Buffalo Hotel, the hospitality was excellent... The rooms were extremely clean and they made sure that they are putting clean towels... Hygiene is their key. I already recommended that hotel to my friends. Thank you

It was good. My only issue was with the quality of the toilet paper and there was no hand sanitizer in the bathroom. With this pandemic that was the first thing I would have expected to see. Hand saniters just reflect food hygiene. There was no air freshener also in the bathroom, shower gels or bathing soap too.
