It was the perfect weekend retreat - away from the city, tranquil and relaxing by the riverside. Service was amazing and the food was great. The team really strives to cater to every need. We will definitely return!

The most beautiful setting for a romantic retreat! The staff were friendly, our room was magnificent, with our own private pool and decorated with rose petals, canapes and a bottle of wine. The food and picnic baskets were delicious. The location is fantastic. A 40 minute drive but you feel hundreds of kilometres away. We would have liked a bit more communication from the staff on opening and closing times for service but it was the smallest glitch on what was a stunning weekend away. We'll definitely be back!

Absolutely Magnificent Stay

If I could rate Lethabo Estate I 100% would. The staff were polite and extremely helpful. Lize was absolutely amazing and went completely out of her way to make sure our wedding and stay was 5*. The venue and setting just speaks for itself. I would recommend Lethabo for years to come. We will most definitely be back
