I quite often go to Lydenburg for business. I am very fussy when it comes to where I stay. I need 2 things, Super Sport channels and a great breakfast. I can confirm that they have both and then some. The guest house is stylish, the people are super friendly and caring. The facilities are top class. In fact my... More

My husband and I just spent a night here on our way from Kruger to Ladysmith and it was exactly what we were looking for - really comfortable bed and huge bedroom, great breakfast, clean bathroom and chocolate easter treats on our beds! The staff are great and even went the extra mile to help us with a pizza order... More

WIFI in a such a small establishment. Will certainly use the venue on my next trips. They even gave me an early breakfast, 30... More

I stay at Purple Gecko for business reasons and I'm never dissapointed. They have several rooms and self-catering units. The rooms are beautiful with nice little touches including a mini bar. The bathrooms are amazing and I can always relax after a long day at work. My last experience was a bit bad with a self-catering unit. The room is... More

We recently stayed at the purple gecko after our vehicle broke down in Origstad. We only arrived at the guesthouse after 7:30 at night, with two sleeping babies and in a tow truck. The owner and staff could not have done enough to get us into a room quickly so the kids could sleep, help arrange dinner and fetch my... More

The stylish purple gecko sign led us to this tranquil guesthouse. We were given a very warm welcome by the host who was full of local knowledge and advise about the area and the rest of our SA trip. The rooms were beautifully decorated with a real feel for detail and colour. The amenities were of a very high standard... More

Follow the clear signposting from the outskirts of Lydenburg to this charming place. Staying at this welcoming, friendly guesthouse was a wonderful experience. The rooms are warm and cosy with great attention to detail. We loved the spacious bathroom and the little touches like a carafe of sherry in the room. The sunny garden attracted wild birds and we enjoyed... More
