Pezula Castle Reviews
“I really enjoyed my stay it was pleasant and out of this world. The staff are friendly and the service is of high quality 5 star indeed. I would definitely highly recommend anyone to stay at this hotel one of thee best.”- Zekhethelo M
“We stayed at Pezula for 4 days as a family of 4 (2 adults + 2 children) and had inter-leading rooms overlooking the 10th hole – apartment 79 & 80. From the moment we arrived we were given the VIP treatment. The staff are super friendly and are always willing to help. The accommodation is outstanding with massive rooms that are fitted out with all the furnishings (including a fireplace).”- mbreyten
“We stayed at Pezula last week and wished we could have stayed longer. We had a superior junior suite right on the 10th Tee (#80). It was fun watching people tee off from our balcony. The room was huge, with a working fireplace. The king bed was two singles pushed together, with two separate sheets and comforters. Which was a little strange, but solved the usual fight for the covers. The service was tremendous, the staff seemed very happy to see us and made sure everything was perfect. “- Horseshoelake
