We went to Tzaneen without a booking. We visited 8 hotels/guest houses before we found La Baruné. What a relief! Yvonne was very helpfull and gave us a fantastic welcome. It was a sunday so many places were closed. She arranged pizza's and a bottle of wine. The breakfast in the garden was perfect. We really recommend this place!

A group of us stayed here while our boys were on a cricket tour:the accommodation was extremely comfortable, the breakfasts were delicious, but most importantly, it was gracious. Although it is not self-catering, coffee was available all day, and we were free to help ourselves to glasses etc if we were having a sundowner or light snacks and relax around... More

Had a pleasant stay, lovely bed and very welcoming aircon. Rooms are a bit small and floor may need some attention. Breakfasts are lavish and lots of personal touches. Parking is a bit tight so dont bring your fortuners here. Lots to do in the area, lovely climate.

The furniture and carpets in this accommodation are very old, run down and not at all of the quality one would expect for this rate. The Lady at the reception was not very helpful. When we asked for restaurant recommendation, we only were told two possible alternatives. The Lady phoned the restaurant (the second one was a Spur´s), only to... More

This guest-house provides luxurious accommodation, with the most comfortable bed I have slept in for a long time. It was good to have both a shower and a bath on offer in the bathroom too. In the morning I enjoyed a very hearty and delicious breakfast. I would commend the attentive and friendly staff. It is truly a great guest-house... More

What a pleasure to stay. Impressed with the details. The register was filled in and required only a quick signature. Special thanks to Melissa for waiting for my late arrival. Room was fresh and very comfy. Breakfast was wonderful. Too big I think. Karen a very attentive host. Will stay again for sure

I stayed for 3 nights at La Barune. My room was really spacious and spotless clean. However I did not like the thick carpet in the room - this is my personal thing. Breakfast was really nice. Every morning you get some different fruit - either a fruit salad or a grapefruit etc. The lounge is nice and cosy and... More

The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. The breakfasts are the most mouth-watering in the whole SA and if weather allows it is served outside next to the pool with a view of birds and sometimes even monkeys up in the trees! I wonder if any guest has ever managed to finish their whole breakfast! Linda goes out of her... More

I have had the honour of two visits to this wonderful establishment. Linda is a wonderful,caring host for whom nothing is impossible. Stunning décor, and a beautiful swimming pool, where we spent many hours. Breakfast is "simply the best" i have had anywhere. Although it is just down the road, it seams as if you are in heaven, and a... More
