As European and Australian flight leave in the evening, you would be tempted to stay for a relaxing day around the pool as the hotel is located in a lovely mountain landscape but kind of nowhere. Unfortunately, the swimming pool does not offer shower, toilet or restaurant facilities to have a last...

One of the best hotels in SA by far. Had a great time. All the staff were extremely professional and courteous as well as efficient. The rooms were private as well and had great views. The bar also has a large selections of liquers & wines.

My husband and I went on the morning game drive and share the breakfast picnic afterwards. Our guide, Andre, was very informative, answering ever questions each of us had.

beautiful scenery, a beautiful place overlooking the mountains and valleys of the south of Johannesburg, would ask the restaurant to up their game on breakfast cuisine as we were not totally satisfied with the food.

My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary with a one night stay at Thaba Eco. The only problem we had was that the aircon in the room did not work and we wasted 2 hours trying to resolve the problem. After numerous calls and promises from reception, we eventually had to walk to reception to request an alternative room....
