From our first contact with Bydand we had excellent service. The accommodation is close to to addo as well as many other activity sites in the area. The rooms were comfortable, impeccably clean, neat and of excellent quality with regards to space and the south african feel. Our host, Margaret made us feel so welcome with no request being too...

We spent a night at Byband and it was a thoroughly enjoyable time. We were a family of 5 and Margaret arranged the appropriate room for us. The room was excellent - beautiful wood floors, large open space and a full french door overlooking the orange orchards. The property itself is so beautiful and relaxing - next to a small... More

We chose Bydand B&B, a working citrus farm, as it was close to Addo. Our room was clean and spacious. We all slept like logs as it was soooooo quiet! Breakfast was very nice and I particularly enjoyed the fresh orange juice made with the farm's oranges. The wi-fi was fast. All in all we had a very pleasant stay... More

As return visitors to Bydand, we were even more pleased to stay there a second time and have plans to return again with future guests. We have been fortunate to be able to choose our room on arrival, the rooms are all spacious and airy, a/c, and very clean. Breakfast is excellent, best fruit salad I've had away from home,... More

Margaret is a perfect hostess with the perfect house. Nothing is too much for her. The house is spotless clean, comfortable and welcoming. A perfect place for trips to Addo Elephant Park. We will be back, for sure!

After a very long & hot day in the Addo Elephant Park we received a very warm welcome from Margaret and her husband. The location of Bydand's is well and truly situated amongst the the citrus groves. We were grateful that there was a swimming pool to cool off after a very hot day. The accomodation there was first class.... More

My family stayed for three nights just before Christmas 2012. Everything was comfortable and homely. We were made to feel very welcome and were offered good advice about what to do and where to eat during our stay. Very handy for Addo Elephant Park. Good recommendation to visit Schotia Safaris, Lenmore Restaurant and the Daniel Cheetah Project - all within... More

Stayed here for two nights in October 2012 and loved it. The room was large and airy, and the bathrooms bright and clean. No TV, if that's your thing but we found the wildlife a few miles away to be far more entertaining. Margaret is a wonderful host and takes exceptionally good care of her guests (she even stays up...
