Even though they are upgrading the rooms our stay there was lovely. The staff and service in general is great. Food was excellent. If going over the pontoon be aware of the lift if a tractor is on the pontoon already. Weather was not to great so we were not able to explore to much.

We arrived at the hotel after crossing the river by pont in the early morning. Everywhere was shrouded in mist which added to the unique experience. We enjoyed a hearty breakfast. Excellent value for money. Efficient friendly service. Only suggestion is that a table cloth would have been nice rather than mats. Loved the sign which greeted us - No... More

Well, the setting is beautiful but the dream cruiser 1 was more like Hell cruiser 1. Whatever you do please do not be taken in by the pictures on the website as what you get is not what they promise you. Besides the very small space advertised as a 5 sleeper (better suited to 2 people) the hygiene on the... More

It is very unfortunate that this weekend's experience left you so unhappy. We send information to our guest before they book the boats to explain exactly how everything works on the boat, even the size of the boat is on there. As per the photos on our website you can see the size of the cabins, including the small porta... More

In general I have found B&B's better value for money here in SA, however in Malgas there aren't a lot of one night stay options. I stayed at the hotel for one night in room 18 which was newly refurbished, it was a nice size room with a double and single bed, a desk, big flat screen TV, fridge, coffee... More

We visited Malagas Hotel on a sunny Winter's day so it was quiet. We crossed the river on the pont which was an interesting experience. The Pont is pulled by two very strong men. Worth a visit.There was just one other family having lunch at the hotel. We didn't sleep over, just had lunch. It was a bad choice of... More

Thank you for your feedback which has allowed us to rectify matters with staff concerned. Correctly speaking our hamburgers are not home-made on the premises but are purchased from a butchery allowing them to be far tastier than shop bought ones. We agree that the snack baskets (meat and seafood) are popular as a pub lunch meal and as we... More

Staff friendly on arrival. Rooms quite basic. Set menu which was terrible. Food overcooked and tasteless. When we went to bed I discovered that my bottom sheet had dried blood on it and clearly had not been changed. Fortunately there was still a member of staff in the bar who phoned the housekeeper who arrived and put us in the... More

A complaint regarding a soiled bottom sheet was lodged with the on duty barman, who immediately contacted the house keeping supervisor, who in turn addressed the matter with the guests concerned. On inspecting the linen a fresh spot of blood was apparant and the guests were given the option of fresh linen or to be moved to the room next... More

We have just spent 2 nights on a houseboat (rented out by the Malagas Hotel) and then 1 night at the Malagas Hotel. I will start with a few positive remarks: the location is amazing; the dinner was nice and the staff are friendly (except one receptionist) and the beds in the hotel are very comfortable (we were in room...

We stayed 4 nights in one of the small twin rooms on the 1st floor. Basic, rustic, but neat & comfortable accommodation under the roof offering good value for just spending the night, while travelling the many Nature reserves in the neighborhood by day. Shower with plenty hot water, but only curtain. Beautiful garden and plenty of birds. Fishing the... More
