Everything was perfect !!


Oct, 08, 2016

Not only an overnight stop, but a place to rest and enjoy.

Very friendly staff, feeling of belonging. Also that some of them worked there for many years.
The unmannered guests, I assume they were government officials,sweeping cuttlery etc from the tables etc. But yoy cannot really do something about it. Wifi useless

A Step back in time......

The olden day feel of the venue, makes you feel like you have stepped back in time. The staff are friendly and helpful. We had a lovely evening from watching the rugby in the bar through to supper in the dining room. Best chips, crispy on the outside and soft fluffy on the inside, arrived hot hot. The steak was as ordered and tasty. The pork chop was all meat served with a mash and gravy. Yummy
A few touch ups here and there which are being done.

Magnificently refreshing

the scenery is superb
lack of food variety


Oct, 03, 2016

Stunning views, romantic setting, comfortable and spacious rooms.

The location is just too perfect. The rooms are spacious and bedding smells fresh and clean. Sitting on the bed with views like they have there was just too perfect for words. Staff is very friendly and welcoming.
The bathrooms are very old, the lights in there make some sort of static noise and shower heads needs changing. The monkeys were walking on the electricity fence which proves that its never on. There were cats which I wasn't aware will be there, wouldn't have booked it if I knew about the cats. Breakfast is ridiculously overpriced.

Excellent value for money.

Limited menu


Oct, 02, 2016

Classical Oldie that needs some TLC

Spacious, with the Lounge area
The Bathroom/Shower Cubicle needs some serious attention - Upgrade


Sep, 28, 2016

Colonial atmosphere very relaxing.

Location and views from the terrace were outstanding, although a little isolated. Rooms very comfortable and some very nice touches made our stay enjoyable. Staff in general very helpful.
The dinner menu was very limited with no option but to drive 20km into Tzaneen for an alternative. A lick of paint would not go amiss.

Excellent service

The hotel gives a sense of serenity on top of a mountain with beautiful view.
The garden needs tending.


Sep, 25, 2016

Relaxing, Euphoric

The restaurant, food and staff were excellent


Sep, 20, 2016

wonderful stay

food is excellent the beds are clean and comfy the service is very good
the air con was not working the main door is cracked the place needs maintenance


Sep, 15, 2016

Generally down on previous visits, expensive for what you get

location and view, staff friendly
Bed too soft and bouncy, old, maintenance poor, painting needs redone, gutters in shatters, general upkeep down on previous visits (more than 30years ago first time). Generally expensive for what you get


Sep, 05, 2016

Beautiful setting, friendly staff - needs maintenance though.

The location is beautiful and the staff are lovely.
Although the rooms were comfortable and the antique furniture beautiful, the entire hotel is in need of a lot of maintenance and upkeep. It did feel a little neglected.


Sep, 04, 2016

Beautiful location, pity about the food.

Location beautiful. Rooms very spacious and nicely decorated.
Main downfall of this hotel is the restaurant. The food was very average, not at all in-keeping with the standard of the rest of the hotel. It was also seriously overpriced for what you got.


Sep, 02, 2016

Excellent, excellent place to unwind.

The location. Service from personel . Spa
There was instances were the facilities were not clean - like the bathroom toilets in the room and at the spa.

Very poor

Absolutely appalling! Checked in a few weeks ago at The Coach House. On a few people's recommendation for a birthday weekend break, my younger brother and his partner was joining us the following day. On arrival the receptionist was actually sleeping on the job. The lights of the doorway and path to our door isn't working. The bedding is stained in our Double Deluxe room. There is only 1 hand towel and 1 bath towel in the bathroom and the reservation was made for 2 guests. On arrival at the restaurant the waiter first got our drink order wrong. On request of the wine list to view their beverage selection the waiter then proceeded to plonk 5/6 different bottles of white & rose wines on our table of which he didn't even know the prices. On enquiring about their red wine he only offered 1 wine bottle. I enquired about the food options and was told the only option available was a buffet. On closer inspection of the buffet of almost R200 per person there was only scraps left on the chaving dishes. On enquiring if they are going to replenish the dishes we were told to dish up from what is left. I then proceeded to the reception to find out if we could possibly try ordering from their room service menu - which we found limited to mostly salads and burger type meals. This was at 8 in the evening a whole hour before the kitchen was said to close. A manager approached us and asked if He could arrange a proper meal be sent to our room. We took him up on his offer and placed our food and beverage order with him and then went back to our room. When we arrived at the room we realised the following: There is only a tiny bit of toilet paper on the roll and no replacement.There is no milk at the tea/coffee station in the room. No television remote. The phone is not connected to the reception and other departments as indicated on the handset so I had to phone the hotel from my cell to report these matters.

The infrastructure has deteriorated since our last visit 9 years ago. The indoor pool was not heated.


Aug, 31, 2016

Je voelt je hier als een vorst behandeld op een fantastische locatie.

Het personeel, de persoonlijke aandacht en de service with a smile.


Aug, 21, 2016

Staff was friendly and helpful.

Needs to be painted and updated, gardens needs to be manicured or simply weeded.


Aug, 19, 2016

A piece of old fashioned style in a restful setting

The staff were very attentive and friendly. It started in the car park when we arrived and continued throughout the stay. Food was good and mainly value for money. Had an abundance of wood for the log fire - we so enjoyed that.
Nothing comes to mind.

The Coach House Hotel & Spa is no longer the venue of excellence on which it's reputation was built

The surrounding scenery and views from the hotel are extremely beautiful. Sadly the hotel infrastructure and gardens are suffering neglect and detract from the surrounding beauty.
Sadly the Coach House has lost it's personal touch - the service levels have dropped - thread bare towels with holes, no complimentary toiletries in the rooms. Dining that is spoilt by mediocrity in both service and cuisine. Orion - Please don't destroy one of the "gems" of the hospitality industry

Enjoyable weekend stay

The very friendly staff / manager. The view of the Drakensberg is breathtaking.
The wine and food could do with a broader selection.


Aug, 15, 2016

We only had one night but would loved to stay n.. Beautiful setting, every comfort and no glitz!

Misssed the garden that was there many years ago when we stayed there.


Aug, 14, 2016

High hopes only to leave disappointed.

Room not ready on arrival. No minibar as advertised on their website - this was important as I had to keep medicine cold. Toilet made a noise for 10 minutes after flushing. Not enough towels put in room. Rooms and bathrooms in much need of a facelift. Poor wine selection. Salad didn't come with everything as stated in the menu - we were not informed that the hotel was out of stock of these items when ordering. Served raw chicken.
