A business partner and I had to go on short notice to Mthatha recently for work and most of our usual accommodation was already fully booked. We managed to get rooms at Ekhaya Guest House. This is the first time we have used this guest house and we arrived after dark tired and needing to unwind. There appear to be... More

I visit Mthatha often for business and stay for quite long periods at times. I have been using a few different B&B's as the popular ones are fully booked most of the time and I often do not know well in advance of my visit. Ekhaya is one of these where it is almost impossible to get accommodation on short... More

The facilities were great and the breakfast was stunning. The management however, was extremely rude and unaccomodating. We were literally thrown out because we were waiting for our ride to collect us. We weren't in the rooms, just siting on benches outside. We were forced to walk somewhere else where we could sit and wait. I would not stay here... More

I cannot review the facility because I can't get hold of them. Their internet presence is limited to third party sites with minimal information. Website address does not exist. I tried the landline at 8.30am on a Friday and it rang for ages but no answer.

We have stayed several times at this wonderful B&B. The accommodations are very nice and the staff is extremely helpful. The rooms are spacious and the furnishings are very nice. We strongly recommend this wonderful place to anyone looking for a place to stay in Mthatha.

I stayed at the guest house last Wednesday night. The room was rather large with an African theme. I was on a business trip and had spent a lot of time driving. I was happy to see that there was a spa bath in the bathroom as well as a towel heater. I was looking forward to just having a... More
