Stayed at the Villa Amor for two weeks. The stay was overall quite pleasant. Barrie was a good host and very hospitable. The room was clean, laundry service was effective, breakfast was good, wifi was reliable, and the overall premises were well maintained and nice.

Had a great stay for a two week business trip. Reasonably priced, our needs were catered to, solid wi-fi, breakfasts were very good and Barry adjusted day by day according to our preferences. Very convenient for our business needs. Very quiet for sleeping. Would stay again.

Our breakfast for all guest are fruit sald, muesli, yoghart, fruit juice, tea/coffee, muffins, cheese, toast. Your choice of eggs, beacon and sausage. Not so sure what more is required. The dirt road from Graham road to our gate is 479m. WiFi is avaialble and guests that want to use it asks for the password, unlimmitted use available. You paid R2099 for two nights stay for two people including a full breakfast everyday. That is R1050 per night for two people.

Wonderful overnight stay, treated myself to the La Rouge room. Beautiful furniture, I felt like a king. Took a stroll in the beautiful gardens before sitting down for breakfast - Felt like heaven. I would stay here again if I have the chance. I can definitely recommend booking a room here.

Lovely clean and spacious rooms! Beautiful garden! Friendly and welcoming host! For 5* expected a little bit more - no welcoming water or rusks & in some of the rooms there wasn't coffee either - but was sorted quickly. Breakfast was really not enough food!!! Overall I would recommend it!

Barry was an excellent host. My wife and I loved the peace, quiet and tranquility. Ideal for a getaway to just relax and reboot. I would recommend this property. Also not a far drive from Dinokeng Game Reserve for a self-drive. Was a really amazing weekend.

Boasting with a spectacular garden surrounded by nature, yet centrally located close to all major amneties. The entire villa is kept spotless clean. Utmost comfort on their beds and top quality bedding and decor one truely can appreciate. The establishment is sheer luxury. It is safe and secured and also child and pet friendly. We received a warm reception and delicious meals were freshly prepared from scratch. I have travelled too many places and Villa Amor is by far the most beautiful, spacious and pleasant accomodation I have experienced. There is absolutely no noisy traffic or any other form of noise. You literally wake up to birds chirping happily away. Also have a lovely pool, tennis court and basket ball court to destress and as Ive said, a spectacular garden if you prefer leisurely strolls. Most certainly FIVE STAR worth and will exceed your expectations. Thank you to Cecilia and Barry for your kind hospitality. Such is rare.
