Protea Hotel by Marriott Zebula Lodge
Excellent hotel with extremely friendly staff. It is primarily a golf estate so if you are not there for the golf there is not a lot to do except relax.Nearby game lodges do not allow access to people not booked in or no day visitors allowed .

A lovely long weekend away
We had a great long weekend at Zebula. The location is great - just a 2 hour drive from Joburg, but it feels like the middle of nowhere because it's so peaceful. The room was huge and the bed was comfortable. The staff were great too. There was no wifi or cellphone reception in the rooms. It's a good thing if you want to disconnect from your usual routine.

Dropped in for a night and it was great
Staff were very friendly and make us feel very welcome. Room was clean and comfortable with in-room fireplace and indoor/outdoor shower a very nice touch. Dinner was adequate. We did not stay for breakfast but the buffet looked quite extensive.

From the time we are arrived we were treated wonderfully. Check in was quick a d efficient and everything listed on the site was available in the room. It was quiet as we arrived on a Wednesday and I expected service to lack a bit but it didn't at all. Highly recommended the pork belly at the restaurant for dinner. Thank you for the excellent service. We would like to return so.
