“Wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Magnolia is the perfect place to stay when visiting Addo Nationalpark. The two hosts are extremely welcoming. The room is furnished in a stylish African way.
We enjoyed chatting with the owners and they gave us great tips and helped us planning our route . Breakfast was delightful with delicious muesli, fresh fruits joghurt and great coffee!
Thanks again for your help and your war welcome!

The ambiance, quality and the people - in contact and in touch with the tourism industry in the Eastern Cape, and further. Local knowledge blended with worldliness - a wonderful base to get to know the area and it's attractions first hand. The location is away from the hustle, yet close to Port Elizabeth to enjoy all that the city has to offer.

A plus factor is the experience and contact with the big five resorts, who, where and what. A great place to launch from!!

We were at Magnolia for two nights. The rooms are big, clean and had everything we needed. It was the first stop we had, that had a good heating, what you need during winter time in South Afrika.
The owner took very good care of us, we had a breakfast at bed! She was also verry helpfull when oure car had to be fixed, or when we where looking for something to do.
A very nice place to stay during a vistit at Kirkwood!

We were looking for somewhere to spend the night before visiting Addo Elephant Park - and found far more than we were expecting in Magnolia's warm welcome, beautiful gardens, comfortable safari dome tents and the communal kitchen and bathroom. What impressed us further, was their attitude towards children; not just lipservice, but half price for kids under twelve and the kind of freedom that gave them licence to romp all over the garden, climb trees etc and get rid of all that pent up energy after hours in the car. Thanks too for the useful advice and tips for Addo. We will definitely recommend Magnolia to our friends.

For the second time already this year we visited Magnolia Guesthouse, owned and managed by the Dutch couple Yvonne and Aad van Tol. The first time we chose this place because it is conveniently situated near Addo Elephant Park. The small guesthouse is nice and charming, but the warm hospitality of our hosts exceeded our expectations. They took us out for an elephant ride in the Zuurberge and showed us an organic citrusfarm where they were just picking the fruits. Cherry on the cake was the visit to Daniell Cheetah Breeding Project, just outside Kirkwood.
Yvonne and Aad did everything to make us feel at home, no question remained unanswered, their care was just great and made us come back for a second time. It is easy to see that their heart is here in this wonderful part of the Eastern Cape and the love for their guesthouse shines on their service. The guesthouse has two rooms, sharing a bathroom. If you want you can also choose a safaritent and use the braai area. The price is right for all the service that they provide. We'll be back to this little hideaway that gives us the feeling of being home, far away from home...

For the second year running , we had the pleasure of staying at the Magnolia guesthouse during the Kirkwood Wildsfees . This year (2012) we stayed in the pre-erected Safari tents . The guesthouse property is very charming , conveniently situated on the main road into Kirkood from the PE side . The accomodation is affordable and comfortable , the amenties adequate and the security good . The owners are very friendly and go out of their way to maximise your stay . We would recommend without reservation that anyone who has the pleasure of spending time in the area spend it at Magnolia Guesthouse .

Room Tip: Although we stayed in the pre-erected Safari tents , the rooms looked sunny and spacious .
