The building that houses the reception area, lounges and dining room used to be a farmhouse that dates back to the late 1930’s. While a few of the rondavels remain, ten modern rooms have been added to create a bouquet of six luxury suites overlooking the garden and pool, four hotel suites, seven family suites and three rondavels. All the rooms, including the original rondavels of the guest farm, have been refurbished. Comfortable accommodation is the cornerstone of the Hotel, beautiful rooms provide intimate privacy for guests, a completely relaxing experience in absolutely awesome surroundings. The Hotel has an old fashioned charm and provides the service of a bygone era. The Hotel overlooks a large garden with colourful roses, lilies, clivias and has a serene pool. The Hotel is named after the Vale of Avoca, an idyllic spot in Ireland. The Vale of Avoca is situated in beautiful County Wicklow and inspired Thomas Moore’s poem “The Meeting of the Waters”.
The original Magoebaskloof Hotel was built in 1937, located on Magoebaskloof Road, between Polokwane and Tzaneen in the Haenertsburg region. An unspoilt setting was chosen for the hotel’s location with glorious views extending to Duivelskloof, Modjadji and beyond. The hotel was built among indigenous bush and trees. The Magoebaskloof was built by Archie and Eileen Rankin. In the late “thirties” this area was unestablished and somewhat unknown. Haenertsburg attracted the attention of the general public for its historical significance. On completion of the building, Magoebaskloof Hotel became one of the few country hotels in the Limpopo area. In 2004 the hotel was destroyed by a fire that started in the kitchen and spread to the adjacent lounge, bar, foyer and bedrooms. From the existing building, the Red Post Box Pub, the Dickie Dagge conference room and the accommodation wing of 30 bedrooms remained intact. With the assistance of management, waiters and other hotel staff the hotel was rebuilt and restored to its former glory.
