I have just returned from a weekender to this wonderful place. My family and I were immediately greeted with warm smiles and the staff geniunely seemed happy to have us there. The staff as well as the rooms exceeded my expectations. The room was spacious enoguth for 2 adults and 2 small kids, decor was not overly done or tacky.... More

Amakoekoe is located close to The Dome and is in the opposite direction of the major traffic going to and from the events venue. The reception is open 24/7 which is great if you need to check in late or need some assistance from the staff. The guest house itself is rather average. It has all the conveniences one would...

We have stayed twice now at Amakoekoe and each time it has been really great. This year we stayed with 3 family members who thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We are looking at booking again for next year as it is very convenient to all surrounding areas. The staff are so helpful and very pleasant nothing is too much trouble. Once... More

A home-like setting well tucked away off a busy motorway, complete with two cute looking dogs. Warm, friendly and ever helpful staff. My three nights stay in this comfortable facility was very refreshing. Whilst free internet access is limited to 100mb per day, the same access alternatively cost $7 - a bit on the high side I guess. Almost forgot,... More

Whats happening with Amakoekoe? The only good aspect about it, and what keeps me going back to them - is the excellent staff. The owners need to look at improving lumpy bed and smelly rooms. The telephone was not working due to lightning strikes, the water features were full of smelly, stagnant water. This place needs an upgrade so the... More
