“The Food is Good”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

We have been the Avoca Vale for breakfast and supper. So far, every experience was superb with good service and great food. Staff is friendly and the gardens/swimming pool was always used to relax for a few minutes at the end of the meal.

We found this hotel while traveling to northern parts of the Kruger. Arriving late into town, we amended our travel plans last minute, so as to not continue travelling into the dark.

We therefore were only looking for a sleepover spot, checked in late and departed early morning, and as such did not have the breakfast offered.

The establishment is quite dated, clean and acceptable, but do not expect more. We opted for the luxury room, which had the basic hotel layout, with bathroom and TV on the wall......

Making the reservation proved problematic due to unreliability of the cell phone network. I did not get a reply on the hotel number, but finally reached the alternative.

Reception was adequate and efficient.

Note that the hotel is on the main road, so expect some noise of the trucks passing in the night.

I took a group of 30 people to Avoca for an overnight stop. I have previously stayed there and know that the facility is small. However it is big on service and the small compliment of staff handled the check in, the pub, the dinner and breakfast and the check out beautifully. The rooms were up to standard and I had no complaints from our group.Well done and we will be back

Room Tip: Any will do

We spent one night in this hotel on our way back from Zimbabwe. We booked a luxury room, which was very nice and food was good (apart from my husband's "minestrone" soup which could have been eaten with a fork). Staff were friendly and helpful. A lovely setting and nice gardens.

The Avocavale was truly a rare and delightful experience! First of all the warm welcome by management and staff ensured we felt like part of this "hotel family"! Booked for a month's stay, our room was snug, comfortable and well serviced and lazing around the sparkling pool, we enjoyed superb lunches under the shady trees, attended by Rae & her wonderfully caring staff. The mountain air and exquisite scenery enhanced by the song of many bushveldt birds, sort of drenches into the bones, relaxing and invigorating both mind and spirit. We often walked through the virgin bush to the ridge above the hotel and enjoyed the beauty of the panorama below, enjoying tea and Rae's delectable teatime treats.
The setting of this hotel personifies the inexplicable atmosphere of the African bush and for those who simply wish to relax and rejuvenate the soul, pampered by professionals, we highly recommend an extended stay. We have already booked our next one!

Food is of very high quality. Staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms neat and tidy although a bit out dated. Beautiful setting between the Soutpansberg. Very nice wedding venue. Enjoyed a weekend stay with family and friends.

Our first overnight stop on a trip up Zimbabwe over December. The reception, the food,the room were all more than acceptable for a short overnight stop. Once we had worked out how the aircon worked all was well and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. A clean, comfortable, and freindly overnight stop.
We will stop again.

Room Tip: All much of a muchness
