Very relaxing and enjoyable stop with extremely friendly crew.
Great value in all aspects ..situation, atmosphere, the property design, the food quality and on top of everything, the quality of the hospitality driven by a so friendly team.

We were met by the friendly and helpful staff the moment we parked outside. We were made to feel at home and welcome right from the outset.
The room was luxurious and large with a welcoming sherry.
An outside shower added to the adventure.
We were accompanied to the dining room for dinner by a chaperone with a flashlight, as it was quite dark.
The dinner was tasty and far too much with Joann and Portia attending to our every need. The breakfast was also brilliant with homemade honey as another surprise.
You need a car to visit or enquire regarding their own tour services which extend to the Krugerpark and many other activities in the area.
A truly wonderful place to stay in the Lowveld.

We took guests for their wedding anniversary and stayed in the executive suites for three nights. The suites were good, to be fair, they are due a redecoration however, we enjoyed the space, sauna and pool, the bed was huge and comfortable. The food was plentiful and good, breakfast on the stoep lasted half the morning (our choice) and dinner was served at our timing and pace. Service was excellent, we stayed in the property for the whole time and enjoyed the walks. Next time we will try the Spa.

Room Tip: Any room, the executive suites are on each end of a small row - all are private.

Good day,
Thanks so much for taking the time to review Highgrove, your valued comments are certainly appreciated.
We do have antiques and Persians in the suites as we are essentially a Colonial Country Lodge and try and keep the decor according to this style. The private sauna and pool are definitely a highlight for guests!

Thank you for commenting on the meals and we have passed on your positive review with the Chefs who were delighted that you enjoyed their passion!

Really glad you enjoyed the walks, etc. and would certainly recommend a visit to our tranquil, well equipped, SPA when next you visit.

Look forward to hosting you in the near future.

Kind regards,
Kathy

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay at Highgrove House. Your positive comments with regard to The TEAM certainly motivates them.

I understand your comment about the view and know that the Macadamia trees have grown significally over the past years. We will try and open certain areas near the balcony of the suites which are affected.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Highgrove in the near future.

We very much enjoyed this special place which was beautifully furnished and appointed. Each suite of rooms was just as one would want it, if one could afford it, with all facilities provided to a tee. The communal areas were of the same calibre and the service and food was of a very high standard which both my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed. I doubt if you intend to go to this area that you could get anywhere better situated and of the standard we experienced. This was all complimented by very accommodating staff and management. If we were to go back we would not go anywhere else. An easy drive to all major tourist venues makes Highgrove House a must for tourists such as us. Bob Cooke Northern Ireland
