Hebron HavenHebron Haven Hotel, South Africa
The Hotel developed around the concept of providing accommodation to travelling people and this lead to rooms being built as demand increased. Later with the development of Michaelhouse and Hilton there was great demand for accommodation during their sporting events and on weekends when parents came to visit the boys. Earlier years saw Hebron as a working farm and the home of the Lions River Polo Club. Guest farms as getaway destinations were also at a time very popular.
As business improved so more rooms were needed. Old storerooms and outbuildings were converted into rooms as these amenities were moved further from the public view. This has given rise to the “Old English” feel of Hebron Haven. Every room has its own character. Unfortunately this is a bit of a builder’s nightmare with no uniformity in design, shape or structure. Doors and windows were fitted, as they were available, with very little matching the next building. However this gives Hebron it’s own charm and uniqueness. Rooms may be double, twin or family size, sleeping from two to five in a room
There is a continuous programme of refurbishment in the rooms as well as on the property. The rooms are tastefully decorated with soft furnishings that further enhance the “Old English” atmosphere and provide a comfortable night sleeps. Reservations are made up to a year in advance to secure accommodation.
The Main building has a very comfortable lounge to relax in, read a book, chat with friends or just enjoy the ambiance of the country in front of the fireplace. The pub, “The King and Riddle” is a firm favourite with the locals. There is an almost tangible atmosphere in the pub perhaps remnant of the elation of previous wins by the Natal Sharks. Sporting events, locals’ night on Thursdays and Sunday lunches fill the pub to capacity, adding to the spirit of the “King and Riddle”. Hebron Haven is child friendly and family orientated.
The hotel has 33 Bedrooms, all en-suite and can accommodate up to 96 guests. Rooms (some double) vary in size from Single to Double, twin as well as Family

Hebron Haven has a fully equipped, air-conditioned conference centre situated some distance from the main building. This offers companies a professional, quiet and comfortable venue in which to conduct their courses. There is an obstacle course offering team-building facilities with trained staff on hand to assist where necessary. Conferences and group meetings are accommodated in the “Gallery” or the “Blue Room” when the attendance does not require a large venue.
Conferences form a major portion of income for the Hotel, with return business and referrals indicative of the satisfaction created by the hospitality of Hebron Haven and the care and professionalism provided by the staff as well as exceptional value for money. Owner & Chef Patron Rudolf Pollabauer has imparted his vast knowledge and experience in this field, from his expertise in dealing with projects such as the inauguration of President Mandela, International conferences visiting South Africa and the Sub-continent, to being an integral part of some of the largest Conference venue organizations in the Corporate and Hospitality Industry of South Africa.
