a great place to explore the area from. The reception, rooms, decor, gardens, food, staff is fantastic. They make you feel at home and the actual rooms are more beautiful than the pictures. The staff try to accommodate you as much as possible. Great place to stay and relax.

We stayed at this lovely guest house last week overnight to visit the Augrabies Falls. The accommodation was excellent - we had a lovely big room with huge, comfy bed. Small kitchen area and good bathroom with bath and walk in shower. Everything worked and it was spotlessly clean. There was also a little BBQ area outside each room which... More

I would prefer to stay in the chalets in the park, but they were all full when we stopped there in February. The Falls guesthouse was a nice place and at the price was not too high, although it was not a bargain considering the rate did not include breakfast. Their main asset is the location very close to the... More

We arrived after a long drive and once at reception we were not allowed into the reception area due to computer problems. We thus had to wait outside in 41°c heat and complete a manual register. This could have been done in the restaurant where it was cooler. We had to book our supper as well which was also done... More

We stayed in the guest house for one evening in a unit with two bedrooms with double beds and bunker beds in the open plan as well. One bathroom. The unit has a large fridge/freezer and a microwave. Braai packs that can be requested are really large portions. This is a great guesthouse. Just remember that you can only get... More

My partner and I picked this guesthouse because we noticed that it was a 4-star guesthouse and the price was very good for this kind of rating. We were so surprised with the atmosphere, cleanliness, friendliness and overall service of the place. If you are going to Augrabies, you must stay here, especially if you are a couple. It is...

This is a lovely place and situated very close to the National Park. We arrived after a 10 hour drive and the temperature as one would expect was very hot. Unfortunately no sooner had we unpacked our bags when we had a power outage. Now one would normally expect a generator to kick in immediately but not so this time.... More

I have stayed here on a number of occasions and its got better and better. The self catering chalets are luxurious, clean, well serviced and generally impressive. They are surrounded with pine trees providing shaded areas in the hot season and also have their own private terraces complete with BBQing facilities. They will even provide the meat for you to...

Wonderful rooms that are fully equipped. The rooms were well laid out and had all amenities needed. The property is lovely and we opted to braai the one night and the meat and salad was prepared for us and placed in the fridge - a tablecloth, wood, firelighters and matches were left outside - this is just a typical example...
