Reviewed 5 July 2013

The service was excellent, Jeremy our contact person was very professional in handling our bookings, Eric and his wife were very sweet and friendly. Miriam and Margaret who also work there were very sweet. You feel at home, its peaceful and quiet at Mhlati Guest cottages.

In terms of efficiency they were very efficient. Everything was properly done and the rooms were always clean. Their breakfast was awesome and quick to serve.

We just loved it at Mhlati, we are planning to go back there sometime soon.

Keep up the good work guys......

Gracious hosts, comfortable and nicely appointed rooms, five minutes from fine dining at Hamiltons, five minutes from the Malelane Gate into Kruger National Park. (I saw the Big Five the day I went!) I will definitely return if I come back to this part of SA and will recommend this great spot to my friends! Thoroughly enjoying myself! Say hello to my new friends, Eric and Janet when you book your stay!

I just returned from a stay at the Mhlati Guest Cottages and can't recommend the property enough. The family greeted us with smiles and a comfortable atmosphere. The quiet location is in a gated neighborhood so security is not an issue. The rooms are nicely appointed with large clean bathrooms and plenty of hot water.
After a long drive we chose to bring our own meal to cook on their grill (braai in South Africa). They supply the charcoal and the kitchen is nicely outfitted. The dining area is lovely and open. I'm sure they would recommend restaurants in town if you would prefer.
Eric prepared of tasty breakfast of eggs and meats for us or you can have continental.
The location is very close to the Melalene Gate entrance to Kruger National Park. Perfect to start a day of viewing the animals. Enjoy!

After over 16 hours traveling we arrived to this lovely property close to Kruger Park. We were welcomed and received a great service from Eric and his family. They accommodated our need for dinner and we sure had a great time. Food was great, rooms were clean and cozy and the ambiance was perfect for our group. We sure will consider further visits to this house with our family and friends.

Room Tip: The house offers rooms as well, but I would suggest to choose the rooms at the garden ( such a Afric...

We stay there for two night in the leopard suite. 2 rooms which are very atseful funitured.
The garden is like a paradise for relaxing. The south africans who run the place were very open and helpful in all questions and discusions you have about the country and the society. The whole place is one of our best accomodation in RSA.

Many thanks for the nice stay .

Room Tip: All rooms have acces the garden which is a very nice place.

We visited Mhlati Guest Cottages for the second time in January 2013. Eric and Jan welcomed us like old friends and we were delighted to be back. We again stayed in the Elephant Room which is our favourite and has everything that one could possibly want for a comfortable stay - excellent beds, superb shower, plenty of space, great attention to detail and evidence everywhere of Eric's superb talent as a designer. We enjoyed the pool, the peace and quiet and the proximity to the Malelane Gate at the southern end of the Kruger Park is a huge bonus. We would far prefer to stay here than in the Park itself. The value for money in this establishment is outstanding. Costs had not increased since our visit in 2012. Eric and Jan are the most delightful and informative hosts and we cannot recommend Mhlati highly enough. The standard of accommodation and hospitality could not have been higher. We could not have been happier or more comfortable. We just love this place and hope to return.

Room Tip: I'm sure all rooms are excellent but our favourite is the Elephant Room
