A pleasant and adequate guest house. Over rated and over priced at 4 star. No toiletries in the shower, just a piece of soap. The shower rose was hanging by a thread and not adjustable. Not good. Breakfast adequate.

Our room was adequate, not luxurious. Breakfast was sufficient and the staff friendly. We ate dinner in the town. There is no bar but a fridge containing a few beers to be paid for by an honour system; it seems not to be re-stocked on a daily basis. This is a comfortable place to stop-over in Springbok.

Immaculately clean and quiet in a garden setting, overlooking Springbok and the surrounding mountains. Comfortable, air conditioned rooms with old world furniture that is comfortable, useful and in perfect condition instead of the flash and useless facilities in so many "designer" rooms that are fast becoming the norm. Great breakfast at individual tables served by attentive and friendly staff. An... More

We have been coming to this guesthouse since 2002 and this was our 4th stay. This place is very nice with very clean and nicely appointed rooms. Each room has its own parking spot. Good internet. Great service and a great breakfast as always. This is one of my favourite guesthouses in South Africa and we have been to quite... More

We felt like VIP's staying at Maggie's beautiful house in town. The staff are very friendly and efficient. The breakfast was delicious and served in beautiful sunny breakfast rooms at the guesthouse. Maggie's eye for detail and quality places her guesthouse in a different league setting the bar very high!

The views are rather nice and the host , Maggie is very helpful. For restaurant reservations she wasn't very informative but we ended up the Tauren Steak Ranch which is acceptable. Rooms are spacious and clean , equipped with a flatscreen TV and a wifi router. Breakfast was a bit basic, some meat and cheese would have suited me more... More

After a long drive from Cape Town, we were pleased to reach Springbok. The Mountain View is aptly named and our room was clean, comfortable, with internet connectivity. Our arrival was managed in a friendly manner and the breakfast that we had was ample for the next stage of our drive into Namibia. The guest house does not provide dinner... More

We stopped for one night on our way to Namibia and were delighted to have a comfortable room and exceptionally friendly service. Even though the room was not as beautiful as others during our trip, it was comfortable and efficient. The staff was very friendly and helpful and recommended a great restaurant for dinner. Breakfast was great!

This was a stop-over for us on our way back to Cape Town. Rooms were well appointed, but the staff were a bit ellusive and untrained. Suggestions for dinner were very vague, and no suggestions were found in the room. We ended up having dinner in Tauren Steakhouse, and that was very good. Breakfast was great, and very tasty. Beds...
