Linen not cotton, pillows need an upgrade. If you want a king size bed you have to request one. We did not get told this or offered one. We... More

Mhlati guest cottage is a lovely place and very convenient to Malalane Gate of Kruger Park. Erik and Janet are very kind hosts who are very helping and ready to answer questions about South Africa and Kruger Park. Definitively a place to stay. Valérie & Hervé

Simply superb...the room, the swimming pool, the breakfast were perfect. We spent only one night in the villa but this stay was unforgatable. Our kids had a bath in the private swimming pool. 5 stars breakfast

Highly Recommended, tranquil. Guest house was on point, fully furnished, beautifully laid with a view to a pool. You wake up on the sounds of birds to a warm home made breakfast, then rest of a beautiful decorated Lapa close to the pool

We booked the whole establishment for a family wedding, however management arranged for an outside party to take wedding photo's in the garden without clearing it with us. This party took over the kitchen, toilets and sitting rooms and we even had to recover some of our wedding gifts in the garden. Unfortunately the apology does not take away the... More

The conglomerate of unbelievable location, delightful and helpful hosts and great facilities, made my trip very memorable. Staying for a month meant I encountered several rooms, all of which were immaculate and hugely comfortable. I couldn't recommend a place more highly.
