  • "No sleep!"

    24 September 2016

    "It was extremely disappointing! We felt as though we were sleeping on a main road - which had trucks and cars passing all through the night. Our beds were SIX meters from the road and it was impossible to sleep with all the noise. I would never recommend this B and B to anyone. There was also a payment error which was apparently Safaris fault - I am still waiting for my reversal to come back to my account."

  • "Overnight stay"

    06 January 2015

    "It was a last minute decision to stay at in a town approximately half way between the Western Cape and Joburg. With many facilities either fully booked, or failing to reply, we got an instant reply from the Desert Inn.The family room we had was excellent - king sized bed, allowed both girls to sleep with mom and dad (to our dismay), instead of on their own single beds in the second room.DSTV was convenient to keep the girls entertained, although they just wanted to roam around outside on the grass.Summer = mosquito's, so remember to bring tabard with."

  • "Lovely overnight inn"

    05 January 2015

    "Desert Inn is a lovely little gem in Midddelburg; they welcomed us and our puppies for our overnight stay to and from the coast. The rooms were clean and met all our needs. In the self catering section, our puppies were able to play in the grassy enclosed area. Definitely recommended!"

  • "An oasis in the desert"

    31 December 2012

    "Desert Inn Guest House is really a good place for a weary traveler to stay over in with friendly and helpful staff that make you feel at home immediately. Rooms are very clean and tidy with the only downside being a bit of traffic noise in the rooms facing the street."
