“Good if planning an economical trip”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Gatz is very conveniently located..about 20km from Suncity & Pilanesberg. So if you are only going for a night or weekend away from Johannesburg, and want to cover both Suncity & Pilanesberg, this place is a good cheap option. I went with a group of friends and booked 3 cottages. they are very small, with double beds, a fridge and tea/coffee making facilities. the bathroom is a decent size. So overall, a nice comfy place to rest for the night. The staff are very friendly and nice. They also serve breakfast, but we didn't have it as we had gone for a game drive and came back much later.

they do not serve any dinner and there aren't any places around to really eat. so its best to eat at suncity and then come back to the guesthouse.

An excellent base to explore Pilanesberg. A very friendly staff who was still willing to serve us breakfast after returning late from a morning game drive.

We stayed outside in cute cabins, but they also have guest rooms in a larger building. It has nice facilities including a large enough swimming pool where you can actually swim compared to the smaller sized pools of other places we visited. Breakfast has many options and includes a range of fresh fruits.

It is possible to have a dinner here too when you let the staff know in advance. We asked them whether they could prepare for us a real African dinner and when the owner understood that two of us are vegetarian she made special arrangements and it turned out to be a vegetarian feast!

We'd definitely come back if we are in the area again.

I booked accommodation for myself and my 4 friends for my 28th birthday celebration. The staff were extremely helpful, they went out of their way to make our stay as awesome as possible. When we arrived at the quest house we hadn't thought about supper as "partying" was the only thing on our minds, the staff informed us that if we buy meet they would set up everything else for us....and oh my word did they....we got a nice table with everything we could need for our last minute braai....they even bought me a birthday cake. Thato also came round to see if we were doing ok...and later even joined us for a couple of birthday drinks. The bungalows were absolutely great and it was our little home away from home for a day. Breakfast the next day was a great end to our fantastic one day getaway, with a awesome selection of yoghurts, fruits, bacon etc. "THE MEXICANS" WILL MOST DEFINATLEY RETURN TO THIS FANTASTIC PLACE!!! GUYS YOU WERE AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MUCH LOVE THE BIRTHDAY GIRL AND HER COMPADRES XXXXXX

The guest house is roughly 20kms from sun city . the location is ideal for day trips to sun city.

the rooms were furnished nicely. Thato was extremely helpful and accomodating.

It is situated on a huge farm, and kids have ample room to run amd play.

We stayed at the guesthouse for 2nites. We had a wonderful stay. Thato was very accommodating. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Our littlle boy boy had such a blast running around the farm.

We brought along food to the guest house due to our special dietary requirements. We used the kitchen at our leisure.

It was a great stay and will definitely return again.

We had a perfect stay at this hotel fully runned by black people. we were the only couple at that time. The staff was so helpfull and tried to make our stay as pleasant as possible. There's not a real restaurant, but the manager was more then happy to prepare whatever you like for dinner and arrangted a nice romatic candlelight setting in the garden for us. Although the swimmingpool was not used, the staff immediately arranged the chairs, towels, pillows and even oppened the bar (with music) to make us happy. Rooms were perfect clean, Bed OK, shower may-be a little small. Breakfast very complete, served at 8, but special for us at 6:00am, because we wanted to visit Pilanus early.

Room Tip: They have different rooms, so have a look first. Our bathroom was a little cramped.

The facilities were recently renovated and the rooms were very nice. The staff was excellent and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. It's a short drive to Pilanesberg and Sun City making it a convenient location, especially for the price.
