My family and I have stayed here a number of times. The setting is absolutely gorgeous! The rooms are nicely decorated and are clean. The dinner and breakfasts served are great. Perfect place to stop over when traveling to the Kruger and in close proximity to beautiful attractions.
Thank GiulZ_SA

We stayed here for one night last week. Our room (8) was pleasant with a 4 poster bed with mosquito nets and plugs provided. The nougat and sherry were a very nice touch. We had a nice terrace to sit out on but were somewhat concerned about the wasps nesting in the bamboo blinds! We did feel that the room/bathroom area could do with a freshen up and our shower was in need of a very good scrub, however the staff were very friendly and helpful and the evening meal was really nice. We didn't fancy the pool as there was a lot of leaf and bug debris in there (we were told it was due to be cleaned the next day but people we met up with later had stayed the following 2 nights and said it was still as bad - maybe this is just an ongoing problem). The grounds are lovely with quirky plantings and wonderful views towards the mountains. As this was part of an organised tour we don't know what was paid for the night, but if it's good value then I would recommend, it it's expensive then I possibly wouldn't.

This was my first ever Guest House in South Africa while I was in between Game Lodges and I found it to be quite lovely and would definitely stay here again if I need a place in the Hoedspruit area. For the money, I feel it is an exceptional value. The staff is wonderful and OMG, the Chef is amazing! I have never had such impeccably prepared, flavorful home cooking. I wish I could have taken her home with me!

The setting for this hotel was beautiful and peaceful and the food outstanding BUT what happened to our room? It was at the end of a line of cabins and on walking in we thought we have stumbled into the staff accommodation. The room had not been updated for many years and the lavatory had an old enamel basin and jug in it as well as a very old loo. A shower had been crammed into one end of the bedroom which was a welcome sight especially as it did work.
We stayed for only one night (on our way to Black Leopard Camp) and I am sorry but if we were given the same room again we would certainly not stay there. Our travelling companion,was given the honeymoon suite which was fantastic with an old Colonial feel about it and a four poster bed!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review after your stay and for recommending the Luxury rooms in your travel tips. We were sorry to hear that you were unhappy in the room that you booked. The Standard room that you booked is more suited to travellers that are on a budget as it is the most affordable rooms that we offer. This is due to the rooms being much smaller in size than the Luxury rooms and the location of the room. The Standard rooms are situated further from the guest house but this allows for privacy and lovely views of the mountain from the patio. If you would like to book with us in the future we would be happy to accommodate you in one of our Luxury rooms which would be better suited for you. We hope you return to the area in the near future. Kind Regards, Megan Griffiths

Do not use the map pin on Google Maps to find this hotel as it is NOT by Hoedspruit aerodrome. It is just off the R531 - we were in good company, apparently, in not finding it! Each room is a chalet set in well-kept gardens with a huge variety of plants, orchids, grasses, all leading down to a pond at the bottom of the slope. The view is fantastic - especially from chalet number 6. We had dinner (set menu) our second night and the food was very good - well cooked and presented. Breakfast was equally good both in choice and quality. We had a safari tour booked but the drive to Orpen Gate took one hour (in an open safari vehicle, so very windy and very uncomfortable). Far better to drive yourself to the gate and meet the guide there - especially as we had an 80 year old with us who would not have survived the journey to Kruger if she had not been installed in the cab beside the driver! 4 poster beds with mosquito nets make you feel like you are in a princess' bed. The bath is enormous and there are nice touches such as bath salts in a pot, some nougat sweets by the bedside and some schnapps for those who like a bedtime snifter.... Plenty of hot water and good water pressure with seating on the verandah outside each chalet all make for a really comfortable stay. Nice blinds, plenty of windows, aircon and mosquito plugs. The basket in the wardrobe contains a torch, candles and matches in case of power failure and plug adaptors. There is even a room spray should the need arise! These are all nice touches which show the managers of this property are prepared to go the extra mile. I cannot comment on the pool as I never saw it. Apparently there were 14 other guests on the property but we did not hear nor see them Tranquillity itself.

Thank you for the lovely review and for taking the time to go into detail about the facilities. I apologise about the Google Map pin being in the wrong location, the pin was placed by an Tour Agent. I have placed a pin in the correct location but it reflects as Pin B. I have also reported the pin on several occasions to Google Maps as inaccurate and asked the agent to remove it but have had no success yet. I will keep trying until I get a response. I hope you enjoyed your time here and hope to see you again during your next visit to the area. Kind Regards, Megan Griffiths
