We overnighted here in April 2014 on our way to Zimbabwe. This was the perfect stop for what we needed which was a nothing fancy, comfortable, safe bed for the night that was not excessively priced. We arrived fairly late and after the sun had gone down. We were taken to our rooms which although possibly not to my decor... More

We stayed overnight in this establishment and booked only an hour before arrival having been delayed at Beit Bridge . The manageress was friendly and accommodating and offered us the last room available at a very reasonable rate, however she did not mention that breakfast would be an extra charge . The decor is very tired and dated but the... More

Other than a beautiful mountain view the room was appalling and the bathroom even worse. Leaking toilet, shower not working, barely any hot water & really tatty finishing s. The establishment is in dire need of restoration & maintenance. What made the experience even worse was when giving the manager some constructive criticism when checking out he became all defensive... More

The Guest house is situated in the mountains and has a great view. The Self Catering accommodation is well equipped and you can request a braai to be brought down. I would suggest maybe offering full DSTV as it was raining when we were there and we didn't have much to do... We did not make use of the restaurant... More

On our recent trip through South Africa we stayed at Ultimate Guest House in Louis Trichardt. On our arrival we met with the owner's dog, a Siberian Husky and was as friendly as the staff and Owner (Mona) during our stay. The room we stayed in was well prepared prior to our arrival with everything we might have needed. The... More

We stayed in this accommodation overnight on our way back from Zimbabwe to Durban, S.A. It is a little off the main road, but we were very happy to spend some time in these lovely surroundings. The cottage was comfortable and the restaurant was lovely (food a little pricey)

The view from the deck is beautiful and the waitresses very attentive and friendly. Room was nice but the food disappointingly average. The morning on which I had to check out I found a hair pubic stuck halfway down the inside of my mug. Any good experience I may have had during my short stay there was instantly wiped from... More

We car camped here to break up the drive to Mapungubwe. The location is wonderful - overlooked by mountains. We had our pick of 4 sites right next to the guesthouse and overlooking the clean pool. Everything was beautifully landscaped and had a welcoming feel. There was a light, power point and braai at each site. The showers and toilets... More

We came to this guesthouse to have lunch away from the town (Louis Trichardt) and for the kids to have a swim. We had a very simple lunch of salads and toasted sandwiches, sitting on the terrace surrounded by the mountains. It was a lovely oasis of calm. The swimming pool was large and clean and the kids had a... More

My wife and I spent two glorious days in the Soutpansberg near Louis Trichardt. We took up accomodation at The Ultimate Guest House on the top of the mountain, this is an establishment that I would recommend to any traveller in that area wishing to stay overnight or for a few days. The decor caters for a range of needs,... More
