Our son suggested we stay here on our way to Kruger and we stayed again on the way out. It is in a convenient position between Johannesburg and Kruger. Sue & Chris went out of their way to make our stays comfortable. Chris does a marvellous "English" breakfast as you might expect. We had 2 different rooms and both were... More

Breakfast to order - what a pleasure! Also ordered an evening meal and had the best lamb shank ever!!! Hospitality bar shows the faith Chris & Sue have in... More

We had a very quick overnight stay, and enjoyed the welcome. Found it very good value at R620 for a twin room. Driving directions were well explained by phone, and the house is in hilltop in a very nice neighbourhood. It is very tastefully furnished, there's a well stocked bar in the living area. The room was fine, with a... More

We stayed in a unit with 2 adjoining bedrooms with a family of 4, which suited us fine. The beds were good, the rooms were perfectly adequate. The bathrooms were... More

we had a lovely single night stay here. Driving up late from Pretoria we needed a place to crash. This was ideal. Secure parking, large room with bath and shower, tv and an excellent stocked honesty bar in the lounge. Plenty to read also if this takes your fancy. Good breakfast - cooked to order and huge pool if the... More

We only required one nights accommodation on our way to Kruger Park but wish we could have stayed longer at this guesthouse. The garden setting is absolutely gorgeous, the hosts were wonderful and the rooms were excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and definitely recommend to everyone.
