    Layout of hotel - well established indigenious gardens. Friendly staff. Good value

    Like a lot of hotels, check- in is far more friendly than check - out. Had to ask for a golf cart to carry lugguage on check - out (embarassing as you feel you might not be entitled to one). We were not offered a locker, towl and full use of the spar fascilities when we had a massage which I believe we are entitled to.

    The thing that stood out the most was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff from the receptionist to the lady that brought the room service. The barmen at the pool/games area and the porters were exceptional.

    Beautiful gardens, scenery!

    That we had to walk to our room 23:00 at night. Very very far away from our car.

    Misty Hills is quite unique in its layout and design. The reception staff were most especially professional,helpful and courteous. The only drawback, if I can call it that, was that the only alternative to Carnivore (which is a great experience if your in the mood for it) was a self service restaurant in the main hotel. It would have been nice to have a gourmet restaurant for a quiet family meal. Would certainly go back again.

    While it was particularly unusual to have bedrooms which were thatched, including internal thatch over the bathroom, the rooms can be quite dark. This also leads to some problems with houskeeping, as several cobwebs were spotted.

    I like the fact that every room is separate, i.e. has its own entrance, It makes you feel as if you are alone. I also liked the design, makes you feel like you are far away from Johannesburg.

    I thought that there too many sports channels on tv and not enough of everything else. I also did not enjoy the service at carnivore, we had to keep asking about the process as it was not explained to us when we got there and had to keep asking for service.

    Pathway to room at night do not have sufficient light. Rooms are very dark inside. Not sufficient light to read or put make-up on.

    The outside shower was a great suprise to the room. Breakfast was also a wonderful way to start the day.

    The directions to the reception and/or rooms are confusing. Additionally when the lady came to prepare my room for the evening she was short with me and when I requested her to come back in 30 minutes she said that she wouldn't be able to.

    Superb

    Functional but good value for money. The vegetation and the sculptures on the premises are fabulous.

    Showerheads and taps all seemed to be too small and weren't easy to use (without getting water all over the place).

    Fabulous

    The layout of the rooms, far apart

    Stayed in room 703. Shower leaked on to floor in room next door. Basin leaked at pipes, bath outlet was blocked. Had to call maintenance to unblock the outlet.

    Fabulous

    Staff were very friendly & helpful. A problem that we encountered was sorted out within 20 minutes. Our room was comfortable & we loved the gardens & water features. Would definately return again.

    Only the food, nothing else!

    The stay at Misty Hills was a mess from the start; it took us 45min to book in. When we went to the Spa, they did not have enough therapists so they could only fit us in on Sunday at 15h00 and checkout time is 11am. Then we went for supper, we ordered a bottle of Rosé that was on their menu, it took the waiter 25 min to let us know that they could not find the wine and asked us if we would like a bottle of white wine, so we changed our order to another Rosé and ordered other drinks with it. I ordered a single J&B with coke zero and Martin ordered a Savannah light with a glass of ice, thinking that this was an easy enough order and that they should get it right! The waiter brought me a single J&B and lemonade and a Savannah light with no ice. We sent the waiter back to get coke zero and a glass of ice; needless to say, we are still waiting for the ice and our bottle of Rosé. We went to the front desk and asked them to please order a bottle of wine for the next evening’s supper; they phoned up until 21:30pm to tell us that they can’t find the wine that we requested and that they could not send it to our room. The more we explained to them that we want it for supper and not for the room, the less we were understood. Then the next morning we left our room at 5:30am to go cycling and we put the sign up to please make the room, we arrived back at our room at 12:15pm to find that the room was not touched. Needless to say we checked out 15min later! I would not rate them 1 start, let alone 4 stars!

    Good

    Spa was tranquil, service at the poolside was poor, the bed linnen in our room was poor as the sheets did not fit the bed so had to sleep on what seemed to be a mattress cover because the sheets kept coming off. duvet short for the bed and pillows very worn.

    overall enjoyed the stay and i believe that once the building is finalized it will be very pleasant. the service in the Summerhouse retaurant was great the management was very helpful.
