I stayed here overnight on my way to a little village in Limpopo. What an amazing experience. The owner is super courteous and ready to help! And when you have the breakfast, order the full house. Everything on that plate is excellent!! When I go to Phalaborwa again, I will stay here again.

La Lechere is a really nice small guest house! Rooms are beautiful and very clean! Breakfast is really nice and English breakfast is served like you want it. It has a nice little pool area, too and a bar where you can sit in the evening. Location is great too, close to a gate to Krueger National Park. If you... More

I had a fabulous stay at the La Lechere Guest House. I was treated wonderfully. From the owners and the staff, the service was personal, prompt, and exceptional. The Guest House was extremely clean, well taken care of, beautifully decorated, in an amazing location - 5 minutes from Kruger National Park, and the management provided sightseeing and game drive options...

I stayed here while visiting Phalaborwa and exploring the Kruger National Park. The Guesthouse is located just a few minutes drive from the Park's entrance gate which is very convenient for wildlife enthusiasts. The rooms have a beautiful African décor and are serene and quiet, affording a peaceful night's sleep in tranquil garden settings overlooking the pool. The evening lights... More

I stayed here with my mum for a short safari trip. Both our rooms were spotlessly clean, comfortable bed with mosquito nets, tv (limited channels) mini fridge, wifi access. The bathroom had fluffy white towels with complimentary travel sized toiletries. Breakfast was a lovely choice of cereals, fruit, toast or hot breakfast ~ plenty to start the day with. It's... More

Nice place in a fringe suburb of the town. Room was clean and well-appointed, with large bed for us. A bit cramped with the extra bed added for our son, but we really appreciate the option of having him in the room with the attendant savings. Good Internet access. Rooms are off the pool, which is pretty, and the lounge... More

This was a little jewel in town! We visited for business for the railways/mine and were nicely surprised by the site and location. Definitely a place you want to relax before/on a long trip! Very nice host and very welcoming place!

Stayed just one night before driving into Kruger; had two rooms for a family of 4. Set in quiet residential area. Parking in gated area in front of the premises. Well signed posted and only a few minutes drive from Phalaborwa Gate to Kruger (with Spar shop for supplies etc) and local airport. No issues at all and would stay... More

We spent a glorious 3 nights at La Lechere whilst we explored Kruger National Park earlier this month. The Guest House is a gem and the perfect place to stay if you want a bit of luxury after spending the day exploring. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the bathroom has a fantastic shower, which is a must to... More

For the second time we went to la Lechere and here it's always relax with the beautifull pool and the nice rooms, also it is very quiet and the staff is very friendlly so when you are in Phalaborwa go to this place and the Kruger N.P is just around the corner
