A pleasant stay

Posted 08-Dec-2013
Pros: Rural location near Cradle of Humankind, great friendly staff, Carnivore restaurant and the great breakfast buffet.
Location: See above
Lovely grounds though some maintenance projects were ongoing on some buildings. The staff were extremely helpful, particularly Nomsa and Christene, and a pleasure to deal with.

Pleasant hotel but cold in winter

Posted 13-Aug-2011
This was my first vist to Johannesburg and I statyed at this hotel basEd upon the reviews I read. On the whole it was a good experience and it is in lovely surroundings with African decor in the room. I went in winter and though they provide an eleectric heather I did not find it very effective and had to ask for more blankets - I had 5 on my bed! Breakfast is decent but it is the same food almost daily and a bit of variety would be nice. TV channels could do with som tuning and be more up to date though I was not there to watch TV. Carinovore reaturant is good for any meat lover - go there hungry! The hotel is a bit out of the way from central Jihanesesburg and though it is in a peacful location it is more expensive in terms of travelling to central Johanesesburg and the airpirt but I would stay at this hotel again.

Our Hotel of Choice near Johannesburg

Posted 16-Jan-2011 on Hotels.com
Basically this hotel is a mini-Paradise. The rooms, their surrounds, the swimming pool, the restaurant and bar services, the staff - all perfect. The Carnivore restaurant in the hotel grounds, is great fun and reasonably priced. We can't wait to go again.

GREAT VALUE FOR THE MONEY

Posted 15-Dec-2010
THIS LARGE HOTEL / MEETING FACILITY IS IN A PLEASANT TROPICAL SETTING. THE STAFF IS VERY NICE AND HELPFUL. IT CAN BE VERY EASY TO GET LOST AT THIS LOCATION. THE SPA ON THE PROPERTY SHOULD NOT BE MISSED (ENDULGE). BREAKFAST IS WONDERFUL. CARNIVORE RESTAURANT WAS TERRIBLE.

Misty Hills Hotel - a gem.

Posted 08-Dec-2010 on Hotels.com
The hotel is situated a long drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria but is worth the trouble. It is set in its own substantial grounds. The public areas are set in separate buildings in lush, beautifully-maintained vegetation - it feels more jungle than gardens. The room we had was a good size; its only problem was that it was quite dark because of the lush vegetation surrounding it. Most rooms looked much more light and open. The Carnivore restaurant on site is a must for dinner. Cooked meats on Masai swords are brought to the table and carved to order. The breakfast buffet is fresh and ample, with eggs cooked to order. We have used the restauant before, but not stayed in the hotel. We would say that it is great for a night or two to explore the local area, but not as a base for visiting Johannesburg or Pretoria. We will be staying again.
