Old and tired

2.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 26 Sept 2016
Badly in need of some TLC. It looks as old as it is and the neglect of the past shows. I'm sure it has potential but right now it's just not there. Food was below average and service in the bar was poor, they even ran out of decent beer.

Absolutely terrible.
The pantry is empty, and they simply cannot offer anything on the menu, after arrangements were made in advance.
This is not what was arranged with management.
Stay away, this is not worth the money.

Booked online two weeks in advance and no confirmation received. I managed to their direct email and asked to book a room for two. On the day I arrived, nobody knew about my booking. But they were very flexible and managed to get rooms for us. Great rooms and very good sleeping quality, secure parking and a large pool.Other good thing, the staff speakes Portuguese and south african languages. It's embeded on the nature, the be thing for me. As I stayed only one nigth cannot tell much more. It seems that they need to improve the booking system and communication among them.

I booked on Booking.com and called an hour prior to arriving and nobody knew about my booking, and ppppromised to call me back after a few minutes, after 10 minutes i called again and still they did not know. i then called booking.com and after a very ong wait and panic i was tld al was ok.

Breakfast was a total disaster. I am vegetarian and was with a muslim guy who stressed he did not eat bacon, yet they made him a bacon omelette and i found a piece of ham on my toast!

Service was very poor, the cost of R100 for breakfast for a vegetarian was not justified, i left hungry as there was just no service!

Rooms were great ! Hotel is great!

Room tip: choose the honeymoon rooms!

Reviewed 7 July 2015

We booked at the Wineglass Hotel & Spa a month in advance as we wanted to spent the weekend in Nelspruit for the Innibos Festival. On the Friday morning we phoned to confirm our reservation of two rooms for two couples. The lady at reception confirmed our bookings. On our arrival there were no arrangements made for us at security. After waiting a long time, security managed to get hold of someone on the premises. We were informed that the Wineglass Hotel & Spa is fully booked, that they have no rooms available, that reception was already closed and that he cannot assist us. We showed the man our confirmation of booking and he still refused to help us. He could not give us a number for the manager. After standing in the cold for more than an hour and a half and a lot of complaining and drama we were allocated two rooms. Suddenly they had rooms available and they had keys for reception. We had no water pressure and the bathroom had a terrible drain smell. I must say the gardens are very well kept and with better management it could be a great place to stay. But before that happens this is a no go!
