    Hunters Rest hotel, in its picturesque sub-tropical setting in the Magalies Mountains has been home to generations of holidaying families and has now joined the Protea Hotels portfolio of hotels.This Rustenburg hotel has prided itself on the kind of service that establishes relationships with guests. The hotel is family focussed in terms of the service delivery and facilities on offer.

    “Hunters Rest encapsulates all the best of genuine warm hospitality in that GUESTS and STAFF get to know one another over the years. That sort of service –where relationships are built – is not as common as it once was, and Protea Hotels are delighted to welcome Hunters Rest into its service family,” said Mark Satterfield, Marriott International Business Leader in South Africa.

    The hotel has undergone a refurbishment to the tune of R15 million to all the public areas and the owners have a lot more planned for the property’s refurbishment. Already, a chapel and an open-air boma give the ambience of the hotel an added dimension for people wanting to host weddings and big functions.

    The hotel, which is only an hour‘s drive from Pretoria and an hour and a half’s drive from Johannesburg, has a strong focus on the outdoors, with its large swimming pool, nine-hole, 18-tee golf course and a nature reserve with a viewing deck. For the adventurous there is mountain biking and hiking, and there’s a newly renovated spa on site for those who want some pampering during their downtime.

    At the same time, Protea Hotel Hunters Rest is perfectly geared for countryside conferencing, where corporates can bring their delegates from the cities to really break away and focus on their strategic or motivational sales conferences. It’s the perfect place also for special corporate and private events set in beautiful surroundings.

    Protea Hotel Hunters Rest general manager Monique Kiefer, herself an outdoor enthusiast, said, “GUESTS generally want to experience something special and create their own memories. The STAFF at Hunters Rest are here to facilitate that special experience and they love what they do.”

    With its strong focus on family, the hotel treats children as special GUESTS. There is a farmyard, horse riding, putt-putt and a heated pool.

    Child minders and baby sitters are available on request for parents who wish to enjoy the fresh produce from surrounding farms at dinner in the contemporary George Wellington restaurant.

    From Protea Hotel Hunters Rest it’s a short drive to Sun City and Hartebeespoort Dam.
