1. When we arrived the lady was killing cockroaches by hand as she showed us the kitchen cupboards. These were crawling around the cupboards & tops throughout our stay. 2. I had no water in the shower, wash basin & bath for 3 days. This was both during loadshedding & when electricity was available. I could not even get water to brush my teeth or wash my face. After sending complaint to reception on the 2nd day. No one even bothered to reply or even give a courtesy call. On the 3rd night we had water after the loadshedding after 9pm. 3. The baths are a joke. The bottom of the bath is approx. 30cm x 95cm. You have to be a midget or bath with your butt or feet in the air. 4. The roads were disastrous. You need a 4 wheel drive vehicle the holes were do deep you can fit the entire car in them. You risk your car driving on this road. The very least they could gave done was warn us about the state of the road. 5. You have to drive though hop high grass to get the vehicle through a gate to be by the cottage. We left as soon as we could early and would never recommend this place.

Our stay at Thaba Manzi Ranch was absolutely perfect. We got a warm welcome from Esther who showed us to our room and took care of us throughout our stay. The room was spacious and clean and our stay was perfectly relaxing. We'll definitely be back.

Very relaxing and quiet. The rooms and swimming pool are very clean. Memory was friendly and helpful. The garden needs a little TLC and a fly trap might help with these little pests. We enjoyed our stay on the farm.

The accommodation was comfortable and clean. It was great being able to take my dogs with and they loved the long walks and seeing all the farm animals.

My husband and I spent the Christmas weekend at Thaba Manzi. We really enjoyed our stay there and the place is absolutely peaceful....its a perfect place for a weekend getaway. Ester is most helpful and we would definitely go back there again.

We had a tranquil and restful weekend with the sound of farm animals and nature singing in our ears. Good service and a unit that are kept in immaculate condition. We will most definitely be back.
