“Plumbago Guest House - wonderful hospitality”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

What a beautiful place Plumbago Guest House is. Situated very close to Kruger Park, surrounded by avocado and banana plantations, it is a little piece of paradise in this very beautiful part of the world. Every comfort has been considered - the chalets are large and well furnished, comfy beds, beautiful gardens and swimming pool, nice robes for use around the pool. On our first night, we ordered dinner, which was delicious and good sized portions. On our last evening Ilara made us toasted sandwiches and tucked us up in blankets ("blankies" as she called them) in front of the TV! She was particularly kind to my son, offering hot chocolate and really looking after us. We were really made to feel at home. What makes this place really special, though, are the hosts, Ilara and Robbie, lovely people - nothing was too much trouble! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this very special place. Many thanks for your hospitality!

Room Tip: All rooms are great! But there is one situated right by the pool, could be nice when the weather is...

This is an awesome place with a stunning view to the Kruger Park. We experienced a totally warm welcome with the dog and would always recommend and go back. The huge garden is impressing with all the different flowers and the amazing love for the little details. It is a very friendly and private atmosphere and you totally feel that the guesthouse is simply on Ilara's and Robbie's heart. Looking forward to the next stay! Thanks a mil, A*B*Paul

Plumbago guest house outside of Hazyview was absolutely spectacular! The setting was breathtaking, with an amazing view of the Kruger National Park in the distance. The suite was amazing and offered everything one would expect for a 5 star accommodation. Illara and Robbie were wonderful and made us quite simply, feel right at home. The attention to detail in the room and bathroom was beyond belief. Our hosts went the extra mile to make use feel welcome at at home, even going so far as to offer us extra rugby tickets for the Springbok test against Wales in Nelspruit! I highly recommend Plumbago guest house to any traveler looking for a perfect and serene place to stay!!!

This place is just fantastic. We stayed for 4 nights in suite 1 and it could hardly have been better. Lovely warm welcome, great accommodation and super breakfast and dinners. Ilena made us feel like royalty. Could not recommend this place more highly. We will definitely be back.

I have visited Plumbago often in the last 5 years. Ilara and Robbie truly understand the hospitality industry and are kind and generous hosts. Nothing is too much trouble and their attention for details is amazing.
The guest house has wonderful views of the surrounding area and there is a relaxed atmosphere to it. The rooms/cottages are set in a lovely garden and offer lots of privacy. They are spotless, spacious and comfortable.
The breakfast on the veranda is sumptuous and so is dinner (you’d have to let Ilara know in advance). No wonder I keep going back…..

Ilara and Robbie have been very nice and made our stay just wonderful.
We stayed 2 Days. That was perfect for doing the paradise route near by.

If there is a chance to come back we would be pleased to stay at plumbago again.
Thank you for everything.
