What a fabulous hotel next to Kruger National Park.
Warm welcome , staff are super efficient, motivated and offer service with a smile . The tea and coffee lounge is a great touch next to reception.
Rooms are large with views over bush or swimming pool.
Breakfast included in room rate was one of the best and served to the table fresh . Local fruit platter with yoghurt and muesli then order and cooked fresh off menus .
Staff did not stop smiling and are clearly well trained

Bushveld terrace offers fine accommodation in Phalaborwa very close to the Kruger Gate. As a family travelling with a toddler we found the family room offering great amount of space and convenience.
We had a great dinner at the restaurant and the chef went out of his way to make us a Lamb curry Potjie. Since we travel often to Kruger my only request would be to put the Lamb curry Potjie on the menu.
Overall we had a great relaxing stay and will definitely be returning when we are around

My overall stay was very pleasant - the rooms are a little noisy and you can hear your neighbours, the the location and service is excellent. I had a little hiccup with the booking of the room, but nothing serious, as long as you use the online platforms to book your room. The hotel restaurant is excellent.

The service all-round was excellent, but especially in the restaurant. We felt that your room prices were somewhat high given the average standard of your rooms and other facilities. However, given your excellent location, it may be worthwhile to examine a more flexible rates package. However, you may feel that this is not necessary if you are experiencing high occupancy rates.

We booked Bushveld as it was recommended. We arrived to a warm welcome. The room was large and inviting, well equipped. The staff were a total delight. Kitchen was amazing, sending out room service as we were tired after a long journey.
We had truly amazing meals. The young chef Adrian, was seen daily, interacting with guests, suggesting wine pairings and taking feedback. After noting our preferences, he made a very special meal for my husband and me, with wonderful wines to go with each course. JP, front of house, took great care of us. Our trip to Kruger was very successful, largely due to the help and advice we received on where best to stock up for groceries and meat. Adrian kindly ordered some meat and fish for us, which made our braais in KNP a breeze! We went on a morning drive, arranged by Bushveld (Nandzana Safaris) and had a large breakfast and snack pack packed for us at 5 am! What more could you ask for? We cannot wait to return! Oh, and did I say they are located two minutes from Phalaborwa gate?

Esther (hotel receptionist) is a very helpful sweetheart❤️
Food is well presented and amazing.
Restaurat waiters/waitresses need to get trained on working well under pressure quickly and safely.
Head chef needs to be coached on excellent personal hygiene.

Bushveld Terrace is well positioned to cover much of Northern Kruger should you not want to stay in the Park. In our four night trip, we ventured up beyond Mopani, toward Shingwedzi, did a round robin from Orpen, Satara, Olifants and still managed to exit Phalaborwa Gate in time. Back at the hotel, staff are pleasant and friendly; dinners around the boma were refreshing, with an odd misstep in service which was well compensated for by a complimentary offering from the manager. The rooms are clean & spacious, but I do caution the flooring is a polished screed with one or two grass mats sparsely laid out. It does make for poor sound proofing & if you in a room on the bottom floor with noisy guests above, you in for a disruptive night's sleep. This was the only downside to an overall delightful stay.

Bushveld Terrace - Hotel on Kruger I found to be a welcoming hotel strategically situated very close to the gate of the Kruger National Park. I shall visit again wherever and whenever possible with friends and family to stay at Bushveld Terrace and thus be able to visit the Kruger National Park.

However you can improve by supplying in the rooms writing pads and pens with the hotel name on those so that guests can be able to work in the rooms. Such items can also serve to advertise the hotel. In my opinion, being so close to the Kruger National Park gives that hotel a tremendous advantage. When I was there though, I did not get the impression that such an advantage is fully realized. For example guests at the hotel getting favorable rates at the park etc. I believe that visible close cooperation between the hotel and the park can greatly benefit both parties.
