During on our holiday across South-Africa we spent several nights at the Modjadji Guesthouse. Our initial plan was to spend only one night here, but we enjoyed it so much that we decided to stay for one more night and also returned later that week after a visit to Kruger Parks.
The main reasons for this: firstly the service offered is excellent. Especially the breakfast is really nice. You just have to tell when you want to have breakfast next morning and they will prepare something that is even better than what most of the hotels serve you (at least the ones we stayed in). The owners treat you like friends and are always in for a little chat (or otherwise the parrot in the breakfast room).
Secondly, the guesthouse offers great value for money The rooms are clean and tidy and have all the basics you need. Nothing more, nothing less. There is a very peaceful and safe atmosphere in the garden at the guesthouse, unlike the chaotic dirty (and unsafe) city itself, which makes it nice to just sit and relax there.
The location is excellent, as it is close to the airport. However, this is also one of the main downsides of the guesthouse, as the noise of the airplanes can be annoying if you are not used to it. We discovered that the cabin in the back suffers the most from this problem, the other rooms inside are a little bit more quiet. But the planes do not fly at night, so you can still get some nice sleep.
All in all I would recommend this guesthouse to people who want great value for money. Staying here will add a lovely memory to your holiday!
