I'm happy with the service at purple Gecko Guesthouse. Over and above the nice rooms, there are two things that impressed me the most, 1. Free WIFI for the guest and the Gym facility. Keep it up Purple.

After hitting a two-tyre-pothole on the way back to Gauteng after sunset on the Lydenburg/Dullstroom road, a family member recommended a stopover at the Purple Gecko....it was the perfect stay-over! A comfortable, welcoming guesthouse, with friendly, caring service from Otto and all the staff.

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

Used the Purple Gecko as my base last week, was working at Booysendal Mine 65 kilometres away. Comfortable room in an annex of the guesthouse, great food and plenty of it and wait for it free!!!! 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
