“One night in Middelburg.......”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

After a long day on the road I decided to overnight in Middelburg. There is not much selection but I definately chose right, the rooms are very comfortable, flatscreen TV and a few DSTV channels to keep you busy. I ate out in the evening but the breakfast was good but everything you wanted was an extra charged which I found strange. If you wanted more then one coffee you had to pay, cereal you had to pay, etc but other then that a very pleasant stay.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

After a long day of driving from Jozi to Port Elizabeth myself and my hubby decided to stop over in Middelburg for the night.

As we had not planned to stay over we followed accommodation signage all along the main road which lead us to Celtis Country Lodge.

I was quite surprized to find such a up-class guest house in such a small town.

Upon arrival at the guest house we were greeted by a lovely receptionist whom explained to us what our accommodaton options would be for the night. We were able to choose either a B&B inclusive room or a self catering unit.

As we are quite the DIY kind of people we decided to book the self catering unit as we wanted to have a braai in the garden area and perhaps to have a swim too.

The next morning we decided to have breakfast at the guest house anyway and this was just charged to our room additionally.

We can highly reccomend this B&B and we hope to stay over again someday...

I stay her regularly on my business trips and i would not stay anywhere else. You are always greeted with great service and they go out of their way to make you feel at home. Any request that you might have, is met. The rooms are modern with DSTV. Beds are warm and comfortable. Food is great. Delicious home cooked meals. Lunch packs are also available.Tea and coffee is provided daily (and biscuits) in your room with fresh milk and fruit juice for your convenience which is chilled in the fridge provided. There are self catering units available as well. Really a great stay and bargain for your money.

P.s This destination is based in Middleburg in the Eastern Cape and NOT Mpumalanga as stated.
