This is a lovely spot, part of a working sheep farm, just off the main road, and a perfect halfway stop between the garden route and Johannesburg. Not often anywhere in the world are you met by the proprietor and walked to your unit, which looks out across a huge African sky! It's rustic but super, such a nice couple...

We stayed here on our way back to Joburg. I agree with previous reviews about Springfontein being a tired town, it's quite sad, but Springfontein Guesthouse is a little oasis on the outskirts.

I have stayed here twice and on both occasions found the reception on arrival, staff and food absolutely wonderful. It is also pet friendly. Dinner is in an amazing red dining room and the dinner has choices and was reasonably priced and very tasty. Would definitely return.

What a delight! Having had a long journey from Joburg we were simply looking for a good place to stop over, intending to continue our long journey to St Francis Bay. We were approaching our overnight destination when we received a call from Mr Graeme Wedgwood enquiring of our progress. This was very welcome as it confirmed that he was...
