    We used the Greenwood B B guide all the way from Phalaborwa to Cape Town and this was our last stop.Christopher ( half Irish ,half Greek) is a host with the most and nothing was too much trouble for him or his team.

    We stayed there in September last year and had absolutely no problem in booking. I booked on line and we had a large room for the two of us. The connecting room was free so we could have had that as well.
