They call themselves the “winelands” of Gauteng and that’s quite fitting. As you drive in the view is breathtaking…
I’ve often paid alot to stay at a certain place, and have been disappointed that a 5 star establishment doesn’t live up to expectations. Kievits Kroon is not rated, but the service and experience both exceed that of many 5 star places I’ve stayed at.
As soon as you arrive and park your car, there is someone outside reception to welcome you. Checking in was such a pleasure. Instead of queueing at reception, we were invited to sit down and enjoy a complimentary drink. A staff member sat down next to us and explained meal times and facilities to us. We were completely relaxed before even getting to our rooms!

Obviously, with it being Winter we couldn’t swim in the outdoor pool- but just looking at it is spectacular. I can’t wait to return in Summer and take full advantage of the outdoor facilities.

We slept in on Sunday and headed to breakfast just before it ended at 10am. The staff were still busy whipping up omelettes, poached eggs and waffles 🙂
