I stayed at Big 5 on business trips twice during 2014. Firstly, I must say that Sandy is a fantastic host who really goes out of her way to look after her guests. I have nothing but praise for her as far as her guest interaction goes, we got along super well and I'm very fond of her. Other reviews... More

We had an overall great stay, with a very hospitable host. Whilst breakfast portions are not too big, it was tasty and well presented. Rooms and beds are very comfy! The kids also had a great time with the resident pets.

Thank you Amereetha, It was a lovely weekend and we enjoyed accommodating your beautiful family. Breakfast portions are very challenging when guests do not eat pork (bacon) & Bangers. We did especially purchase chicken sausages and beans for your family's special needs and made extra pancakes on the last day for the kids. If you have any more suggestions we... More

We stayed here after more than three weeks on a self-drive safari. We selected it because of its proximity to the O.R. Tambo Airport - about 15 minutes by car - and TripAdvisor reviews. It was a wonderful way to end our stay in southern Africa. It had a warm and friendly atmosphere. Everyone was welcoming and helpful in crafting... More

This is a well kept guest house with an enthusiastic and friendly owner. Rooms are large, some with both shower and full-size bath. Breakfasts are freshly cooked by the owner and can be seriously substantial. There is secure off-road parking and free wireless internet that works properly. Strongly recommended.

sandy, the owner of big 5 Accommodation, went out of her way to ensure our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. Sandy made us feel at home at all times and ensured that we never wanted for anything. Big 5's food was delicious and well presented and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Thank you Sandy. We will definitely be returning!!

During my 2 week stay here, Sandy and her fantastic daughters have made my young daughter and I feel part of the family. The rooms are incredibly clean ( not bad from an ocd clean freak like myself!) her maids are so friendly and polite they can not do enough to help. The big 5 has really made my visit... More
