Having just come back from a week at Ipe Tombe Guest Lodge, I can quite honestly say that it is one of the friendliest places I have ever stayed. The staff, Pat, Bob and Barbara went out of their way to make my stay very comfortable. I was in the Johannesburg area on business and also managed to visit an old school friend nearby at the weekend. The Ipe Tombe facilities are extremely comfortable, the food delicious and varied, and I was given everything I needed for a relaxing stay. The pool was very enticing and I was only sorry that pressure of work prevented me from using it more often!

We were treat like royalty from the moment we arrived! Nothing was too much trouble...

Spectacular pool and gardens.... Very south african feeling... Communal areas and bar are very homely and lovely south african touches. Big room over looking to pool and garden area. Big bathroom and nice powerful shower. All very clean and lovely touches such as a chocolate by your pillow and make up remover face wipes!

Cant praise this place enough.... Such good value for money and really made our holiday. Did not want to leave! Will defiantly return!

Lodging at the Ipe Tombe was like staying with family. Hosts were gracious and accomodating, the food was homestyle and ready when they promised. Our boys, ages 12 and 10 played with the dogs, walked the yard, slept comfortably in the bunk beds. My husband and I found time to sit and relax after two days of travel to get to Johannesburg from the US. The entire staff at Ipe Tombe were professional while being down to earth.

The best part of staying at the Ipe Tombe was the family atmosphere with the hosts and other guests. We were there during the World Cup -- Ipe Tombe was host to guests from other countries. What a great opportunity it was for us to meet and mingle with those other guests. I enjoyed my evening chats with Pat. She helped me to learn a great deal about the country, it's history and people. Wow.

Would we recommend Ipe Tombe - without reservation. It is family friendly - without a doubt. The neighborhood was quiet, safe and accessible. A great headquarters for anyt traveler exploring that region of South Africa.

We stayed at Ipe Tombe during our recent trip back to SA. We can honestly say we could find absolutely nothing to complain about. The meals were out of this world and a wonderful selection of wines available. The hosts are superb and nothing is too much trouble. A sundowner in the lapa next to the pool, set in a gorgeous garden, was great - we really felt at home and thanks so much to Pat and her staff for everything. We will DEFINITELY be back!
