Beautiful hotel and a wonderful room with tons of space. Only problem was we were so busy with our tour that we didn't get enough down time to enjoy the hotel. Food was wonderful and staff couldn't have been nicer,

The facilities at the Fairlawns are great. What makes a true difference is the little touches that the staff bring to this venue. Continuously friendly and willing to help with all our requests . In particular the coffee latte is a winner and we enjoyed these frequently during our stay.

The property was excellent. The food at the restaurant (where we dined every evening al fresco and every morning for breakfast) not only was delicious, the price (American dollars vs. Rand) was surprisingly right. Excellent value for excellent food and location. My 10 year old daughter and I both had massages outside near the pool (but secluded) that were amazing....
