“Attentive and Friendly Owner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

What a lovely Guest House. Very Friendly and Attentive owner Riekie. Checked in quite late but she waited for me. Breakfast was Great - Hot and a good variety, Served attractively. Rooms and most importantly the Bathrooms are spotless!! The amenities in the Room were sufficient - more than enough Tea, Coffee & Hot Chocolate for me to make numerous cups!!! Riekie allowed me to check out later than normal as I had a late meeting and needed to Freshen up.

We stayed at Selati after winning their facebook competition. We were really impressed. The furniture and interior is very tasteful and of high quality. We loved the attention to little things which make your stay more comfortable. The breakfasts were wonderful and the staff very friendly and helpful. Dit was ook baie lekker om in Afrikaans gehelp te word.

We would highly recommend the guest house and would definitely make use of it again.

Located less than a 5 min drive from the Malelane gate to Kruger Park, Selati 103 provides excellent accomodation. Good value-for-money cottages, with clean bathrooms, a private braai area, swimming pool and more amenities. Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable owner/manager.

Being delayed by roadworks we couldn't get into the Kruger campsite before dark so popped into Selati. They were very friendly and helpful and offered us a beautiful room - just what we needed after a long, frustrating journey.
I would highly recommend them for a stopover or longer visit.
Many thanks

We passed through Malelane on our way from Botswana to Tofu in Mozambique. Selati 103 was a stop over point. We found the rooms to be clean well appointed and perfectly functional. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. It is also evident that there is a significant security fence around the perimeter, so it is secure too. I would recommend this to anyone wanting good value for money in Malelane.

We found this hotel in the AA south African guide for accommodations. I was able to phone them and inquire about availability since we were not going to make it to Kruger National park that day. The lady at reception was very nice and gave directions to the place. We did not stay at the main guest house because it was full, but they have another house in the same gated community and we stayed there. The price was very reasonable although breakfast was optional. We did not eat breakfast here so I can't comment about it.
Very friendly and helpful people at reception, they gave us advise about best gates to leave the park etc and they also recommended a place to eat dinner nearby.
This place is only 2 km, less than two miles from the Melalene entrance to Kruger National park and it is a very convenient place to stop for the night if you are not able to make it to the park before the park gate closes at 6 pm.
Our room had a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. Beds were comfortable.

This guest house is in a gated community of beautiful houses with beautiful gardens. We went for a walk in the morning and it was very pleasant.

I would stay here again if I need a place near the park

Room Tip: You may want to ask if your room has a regular shower or just a bath. Ours had a bath although we m...

We arrived late from England and stayed one night prior to entering Kruger. We were supposed to stay one night after our week in Kruger before flying back to Joberg early the following morning but because of roadworks we decided to book in somewhere closer to the airport. We received brilliant service in finding a place for us to stay and weren't even charged for the night we had booked/changed. It was such a very nice start to our holiday. Everything was clean and tidy and breakfast plenty.
Thank you!
