A wonderful B&B. Lovely comfortable rooms, a very homely feel, great home cooked meals. I would recommend this establishment to anyone. Well priced, 4km from Kokstad. Shane and Wendy Skidmore the hosts are very interesting and welcoming and we spent a few nights in front of the fireplace chatting, and the bar has a lovely country feel. All rooms have DSTV and are clean, comfortable and all have ensuite bathrooms. A 10/10 spot!
Kokstad is a large transit town for the area. Overnight accommodation is not as abundent as one would like it to be. In this milieu this guesthouse offers good value. Wooden cottages in quiet surroundings on a farm just outside town on the R56 Matatiele road. The rooms are neat and clean,good bedding and cussions. The rooms have TV's and bathrooms en suite. No barfridge in the room which could be added. I thorougly enjoyed the home cooked dinner. Delicious. This is a comfortable overnight stop if on business. The rooms don't have desks if you would like to work but the ample veranda is good and has a pleasant view.
The guest house is under 4 Kms from Kokstad and I really recommend it. Accommodation is in little wooden chalets each with its own shower and tea and coffee making facilities, The beds are wonderfully comfortable.The garden is interesting and there is a nice variety of birds. The dining room, bar and lounge are in the main house. We were there at the end of September, and as the evening was chilly, we drank wine in front of a wood fire before having a delicious and satisfying home-cooked dinner. Unfortunately the neighbours wont permit signs to Pinewood on their property, so you need very specific directions. The website www.safarinow.com/go/PinewoodGuestHouse has all the necessary info and lovely photographs.
