We spent two nights here to explore the panoramic route. The hosts are wonderful; very nice and good tips for the area. The garden is beautiful. Their two dogs are very friendly. The only minus was the room. The room was ok, but it needed a good cleanup.

A tranquil ambiance plus warmhearted hospitality equals a wholly satisfying experience. The alluring grounds and gardens, creatively decorated interiors, welcoming service and an excellent breakfast fare lead me to highly recommend the Ambiance Inn. It is a refreshing place to stay after a drive in the Kruger National Park or a trip through the Mpumulanga Lowveld. The proprietors go out... More
