What a haven of warmth, hospitality and good food - a real find, close to the Kruger Park. Owned and attentively managed by Chris Harvie, the rooms, suites and garden 'cottages' are all quite charming in a very relaxed, unceremonious setting. We stayed in two types of accommodation (having returned after fleeing from a less salubrious place!) and found each atmospheric and spotlessly clean. The gardens were wonderful and I spent two early mornings birding- and notching up over 30 species - including glossy ibis and marsh owl which are not on the 'house book bird list' The meals were excellent - beautifully cooked and presented and, for visiting Brits, very reasonably priced. We shall return! Thanks, Chris and your first class staff for an unforgettable stay.

Room Tip: The suites have two double beds; the 'garden rooms' sleep two in great comfort. The outdoor...

We stayed here for three nights after our trip to a game park. The ambiance was good. The food and wine were great and the staff were kind. All of this at prices which would have been laughable in the UK. It is a beautiful part of Africa but you have to remember that it is Africa.

Well done everybody!

A little late in writing as our family stayed there last october but worth the wait as they deserve all praise. We had a fabulous experience as we prepared for our Kruger safari and enjoyed the atmosphere tremendously. The food was simple but tasty and delightfully fresh and varied; the staff very accommodating and the rooms well appointed. The General Manager could not have been more hospitable and helpful.

Room Tip: There are some rooms facing a field and you can sit on your verandah with an evening cocktail as zeb...

Returned for my fourth stay, and was as delighted as I have always been with the welcome, accommodation, food and service. "Mahogany"was well placed to enjoy the monkeys and zebra while relaxing on the stoep, sorry the hippos didn't make an appearance! We will be back...(again!)

Super place to relax great rooms and food. The views from the garden rooms is lovely and we had vervet monkeys outside our deck.The staff were friendly and helpful. Nice swimming pool. The road up is very bumpy but fine as long as you drive carefully.

Room Tip: The garden rooms are super and have great view and an outside shower.

We were staying nearby, in a very poor standard B and B and wished we had booked here.

We ate in the restaurant, and the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly.

Food was exceptional and wished we had found it earlier in our trip. We had drinks att the bar before our meal, so we could read the menu, and choose at our leisure Couldn't fault it !

Room Tip: We only ate there, but wish we had booked for our 3 nights. The setting was stunning, and all of the...

After a 24 hour journey, we entered paradise. Beautiful gardens, a warm reception and a super suite with a gorgeous view. Upgraded, for witch warmly thanks!
The service is great, the restaurant menu various and the food excellent, bountiful breakfast and an overall very relaxed atmosphere with humor.
The location is perfect for visiting Kruger Park, the Escarpment or just enjoying the beautiful nature when you’re driving to Graskop or Pilgrim’s rest: Blyde Rivier Canyon was my highlight!
But chilling out on the daybed on the suite terrace or by the pool with a nice bottle of south african wine is also an option.
