“A simple B & B”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

We stayed here for a few days in June. The owner was very plesant and accommodating. Outside of daytime hours, this place is very quiet because the reception and other facilities seem to shut down for the night. If you plan on going out for dinner be prepared to wait to gain entry again as it has an electronic gate and nobody seems to hear the intercom to open it.
The rooms were clean and reasonably fitted. Breakfast is simple and adequate but could be improved by butter as well as margarine.

Room Tip: Room 2/3 are on the ground floor but have a room above that seems to be the maids accommodation. If...

I visit Klip-Els regularly - at least once a month. I have stayed at Klip-Els by myself and with my partner. The property is very conveniently situated. You are close to the Coca Cola Dome, Northgate, Fourways, Northcliff, Cresta, Randburg, Jackal Creek Golf Course, Eagle Canyon, Dainfern Golf Course, Broadacres Barnyard and more! There are a few lovely rooms in the main house but my favourite accommodation is one of the wooden chalets in the wonderful garden. Each chalets has their own bathroom and lounge area with a lovely wooden deck where you can enjoy your dinner. Breakfast is served in a huge rondavel in the garden. There are conference facilities and Jorina and Wanda are friendly and professional hostesses. Klip-Els is a type of tree and as you drive up the driveway to the Lodge you will think you are in the heart of the Bushveld rather than a stone-throw away from The Dome.

After struggling to find something near the Coca Cola Dome for a couple of years I was very surprised when I discovered Klip-Els. Situated on a small holding covered in thorn trees and bush, it feels like one is out in the Bushveld rather than in the city. After a hard day at the Dome working at an exhibition its wonderful to be able to just relax and not be in a big commercial hotel. The cottages are spacious and comfortable and the North Gate shopping centre just up the road for anything you need.

Room Tip: Book one of the cottages rather than a room.
