Hans Merensky is a great holtel, the accommodation is luxurious, and has individually decorated chalets along the golf course that overlook the 11th and 12th fairway. Stay at this Lodge was a unique African experience.

This privided my wife and I a oasis of leisure and elegance, The meals at Hans Merensky were great.


Very unsafe place to overnight. My cellular phone got stolen while we were sleeping in our room with the door locked!!!! Management is doing absolutely nothing about it, and only responded 10 days after the incident with apologies that this happened. Our towels that we got were badly stained, no coffe etc in our room, no extra blankets. Got overcharged on golf fees. All in all, very bad. I will never go there again!!!!!


Rerrible Service, From the food service to overall assistance from staff.

Waiting 5 days for an invoice that was meant to be handed to me at check out.
It is a pity that the stunning infrastructure is let down by poor Management and staff.

In regards to the star grading the plaque displayed is an outdated one I would have to question the rating.

Had a great time at Hans Merensky, Stunning Views over the golf course, every morning I was peacefully awoken to the sounds of birds and loved to watch as a herd of impala graze lazily at my doorstep.
