The reception was pleasant as was the tour of the premises. Our room was very comfortable and in usual guest house fashion there was every imaginable nik nak... More

Very goof service. I would recommend it. I find the friendly nature of the staff here to be very welcoming. The quality of the rooms impressed me compared to the other places I've stayed in around the Witbank area. I will definitely be coming here again .

I've stayed there several times for work. The meals are excellent, the service is excellent, the owners are really friendly and have been doing it for years. the rooms are a little dated, but they are very clean and it's like staying at your funky grandmothers.
