The room given to me was simply fantastic, with a decoration from the old days and big enough to held a party. Edmund makes your stay at Belvedere an unforgettable experience, being so friendly and helpful just to make sure that nothing is left unattended. The breakfast is very good and definitely this is probably the best value for money... More

Our spacious room (9), was more to the back of the guesthouse. Although we did not like the steep sort of hidden away staircase it however still offered a view over the river. In the recent heat the two aircons really worked their magic to ensure a pleasant night’s sleep. The stoep overlooking the river is a bonus and a... More

The whole of Malelane was to be knocked out of power and we were helped to find a different location -=in fact almost next door that did... More

We stayed for 2 days and the location is excellent across from the Crocodile River and Kruger National park. Edmund was very friendly and helpful in recommending restaurants in the are and things to do. Sitting outside and watching the animals is the best thing to do. Not rush to go and do anything else. The breakfast was very good.

On arrival at the guesthouse we were met by a guy in shorts and slippers and were immediately asked to fill in a paper with our breakfast preferences. We just had driven 700 km and did not feel that this was so urgent. It felt quite unprofessional. When unpacking our stuf, the " receptionist" didn't even bother to ask or... More

We arrived late afternoon after an half day free tour at Kruger. upon arrival, we are notified that from 7 to 9 PM electrical power will be cut off. Time for a shower and then out for dinner, looking for a place with a power generator available. The day after we booked an early morning guided tour, so no time... More

We had a single night stay at Belvedere, before the Kruger Park guided tour. Nice room, great sightseeing on the river, perfect service. We left at 6.00 AM for the tour, too early to have breakfast at the guest house. So we received a bag to take away with sandwiches fruits and drinks. Important notice: In this period electrical power... More

Fantastic guest house boarding the Crocodile river. We had an executive room, beds, linen, and towels very nice. Breakfast was very good, on a beautiful patio overlooking the river. All rooms seem to have a river view. Honesty bar in the guest house and nothing too much trouble for the owner. 10 km from the Kruger Park gate, but late... More

A big thank you to Edmund for the kind and warm hospitality. A number of hotels in South Africa could use your willing approach to service. His general inclination to do more than the expected was a daily occurrence. A wonderful setting makes for a fantastic breakfast spot too. Thanks again to Edmund and team.

Had the most beautiful rooms and view of the river and Kruger National park. Elephants playing in the river less than 20 meters from the pool. The view is to die for. On the river bank there was Hihenas. Antilopes constantly grazing. Hippos basking in the african sun! Just an awesome experience! Friendly and great service and staff with one... More
