Spent the night at the hotel. We arrived early and the staff were very accommodating and stored our luggage for us, so that we could go and view Rustenburg. Arrived back at the hotel late, the staff were very friendly and even walked with us to our room to ensure we did not get lost. The complete complex was very clean, from the gardens, pool areas, car parks, to the rooms. I could not find any faults. We had breakfast the following morning, all I can say is WOW! If in Rustenburg and you need a place to stay, the Safari Lodge Hotel is a must.

Recently stayed at Safari Hotel and enjoyed the experience. The staff are exceptional, food top class and overall peaceful. I look forward to the refurbishments and rebuilds that are currently in progress.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms in the 300 or 200 block, they quiet and away from the main buildings, its peaceful

Our family has been visiting Safari Lodge now since 1995,it's our 20th year and must say that each visit gets better.
The service here is excellent. The entire management and team are friendly.
Right from check in, We were made to feel at home. This hotel is nicely located away from all the hustle and bustle of city life, tucked away in a beautiful surroundings of hills and mountains. A great getaway, nice and quiet with everything available at the same time. The service and security is excellent. We really enjoyed our visits so much. Looking forward to coming back again and again.

Thank you for making our stay so memorable.

Friendly check in and a free upgrade to a room was a great opener. The room was spacious and very comfortable. We had chosen to stay here as we needed a overnight stop with a restaurant. This is where things fell apart. The main restaurant is closed due to a fire and the one we were shown to had only us as diners. It became apparent that if you are not part of a conference you are just not catered for. A simple 5 item menu greeted us. No starter or desert options. A long wait for our food to arrive. The lamb chops were nicely cooked.
We then ordered coffee at the bar and gave up waiting for that after 20 minutes.

Dear Gerald

Thank you for your honest review following your time with us. We thank you for your patience during our current situation. Earlier this year the lodge suffered a massive fire. It has taken many long man hours to get the establishment to its current capability. We assure you that upon your next visit to Safari, more improvements will be made. We do hope that you will visit us again and we would like to apologise for any inconvenience you may have experienced.

Warm Regards
