We were a party of 5 adults and 3 children and decided to book into Klip-Els Guest Lodge as it was the nearest accommodation which we were able to book into for the weekend of Disney on Ice. The weekend cost us R6600-00 which I would say is very expensive for the service and accommodation which we got. I questioned... More

Klip-Els, Owner at Klip-Els Guest Lodge, responded to this review

I am obviously upset about this review. It is necessary to place Sandy's comments in perspective. She asked for accommodation for two families in close proximity to each other. The only available rooms were a four star graded chalet upstairs and a non-graded chalet downstairs. We usually draw our clients' attention to the fact that a room is not four... More

This is the 6th year in a row that I have stayed at Klip-Els for the Getaway Show at the nearby Done and I have already booked for next year. For the last two years I have stayed in a "Comfort Room" with garden entrance in the main building. The room is huge and has everything I need. Place to... More

I stars here for 3 weeks last year when I was on a nursing placement in local townships near by! As I spent a lot of time here during the days and evening I met a few staff, Mpo and Dora were wonderful. Helpful and very friendly! My room (in the main house) was big, always beautifully clean and great... More

I was booked here to make it convenient to catch a very early flight out of Lanseria Airport. The rooms are actually log cabins but with every amenity you need and more. There is even a Telly and heater in case you're not too comfortable with a tradition affair. Dinner was brought to your room where you can either have... More

Klipels is a traditionally styled African simple guest house built and run by present owners, rooms lead direct on the garden, enclosed paring area, very safe yet feeling of openess, warm welcome and beautiful if out of the way setting, Car essential, amazing antidote to life in the city yet breakfasts need some improvement...

This was our second visit to Klip Els. As with the first visit 2 years ago, the rooms were clean, spacious and well looked after. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The location is fairly central and the grounds are lovely. Highly recommended!

We stayed one night and very much enjoyed our stay. ... Getting an attendant to open the gate from the road was a little difficult and we had to wait a few times .

A comfortable and affordable bed and breakfast in the heart of North Riding, a mere minutes away from the Cocal Cola dome an Northgate Shopping Centre. Wonderful hosts and very secure. Perfect for the business travelers that are exhibiting at the Coca-Cola Dome.
