aha-Kopanong Hotel and Conference Centre
Ranked #1 of 5 Hotels in Benoni
Reviewed 2 July 2013

Hotel is in very pleasant surroundings and the staff are very friendly and helpful. If accommodation is required in the Benoni area this is the place to stay. The bar has great ambiance and one cannot but go for a couple of drinks after the days activities

I have had the pleasure of staying at the Kopanong several times. The site has small lodges, similar to cabana huts with all modern facilities. There is a Birds of Prey Rescue and Rehabilitation Center on site. For a small fee the staff will let you "put on the Gloves"and help with the daily flight exercises. They also have a resident Cheetah, abandoned at birth and raised by the owner. He will allow photographs with the large cat sitting on your lap or beside you. This is truly a great experience. The food is better than average for a hotel. The accommodations are very nice. Each cabana is Air Conditioned. This hotel is very affordable.

Room Tip: This is a very secure site for safety and security for an automobile. It is tranquil and the staff...

First thing they need to put up a visible signage, the road is easy to find but difficult to notice the hotel. the other thing that got me frustrated was that they do not give irons and ironing boards when you request it instead they do the ironing at an exorbitant fee.

The challets are very good and neat. The chalets are also so spacious with a parking for your car. Staying here is like one is at home. I was also taken away by the cheetah that I saw there.

Coming to the food, it's too basic I think they should add sum more dishes. this thing of placing drink vouchers on the tables, I think they must change this system because other people get tempted and steal for those who are not on their tables at that time.

Room Tip: Chalets that are double storey are very good and spacious compared to the ones with ground floor onl...

The chalet settings are really good, you have your own lounge downstairs and a bedroom upstairs, with a kitchen, very well designed, I liked this and for us smokers, they have a smoking section. Okay, let me quality, you may have a long distance to walk to your room if you dont have a car on site, which is fine because the ducks are hanging around, they may give you a nod or so, the little ponds are everywhere, its a really good hotel. This is a very deceptive conference venue, and it works! The lunch and breakfast have been surprising, because with these kinds of venues you always worry but the chefs are on the menu, so enjoy! They have salmon for breakfast, need I say more!

When my wife and I went to the Kopanaong hotel to attend an international conference, we expected comfortable accomodation, good food, and efficient service (the hotel by far exceded our expectations in these and other respects.) What we did NOT expect was to find on the premises a couple dozens birds of prey and even a cheetah. This is not a menagerie kept for the amusement of the hotel guests, but a real and serious wildlife conservation centre, staffed by highly professional and knowledgeable people who are very welcoming and willing to share their extensive knowledge. So if you are interested in wildlife and/or its preservation, here is another good reason to go to the Kopanong hotel.

A friend knowing of our quest to find a place not far away and were we can feel “far away”, recommended Kopanong, as he attended an event and thought it could be in line with our requirements.
At first I was not sure of a conference venue, but after looking at their site and seeing the work they do with the rehabilitation centre for birds of prey and Cheetahs, the decision was fast and we made the booking for the weekend via e-mail.
In short I would like to express our satisfaction, as we came back home feeling relaxed, with a great lot of new knowledge, new friends made, and every cent worth of its value.
As a hotel facility including people, service, the facilities, food, etc, nothing could be faulted especially if one is looking for peace, privacy, respect and enough things to do, particularly in relation to nature and environment.
The contribution that this Venue does to the sustainability of the rehabilitation centre is highly commendable and deserves further support from all of us that are interested in creating environmental awareness to our youth.
Can only say congratulations and we will be back to source relaxation and support your initiatives.

Room Tip: all rooms are in "villa" format and I could not see any difference except if related to th...
