  • "Homey, and very comfortable!"

    07 October 2013

    "We stayed one night and were very happy to stay there. Facilities are very good, beds are very comfortable, everything very clean, with swimming pool and table tennis. They even waited for us with the air conditioning on so that we found the place very refreshing after a hot day in Kruger Park. The host were so hospitable that he invited us into his home to watch the end of the rugby championship on his own TV, and he also gave us directions to a great local restaurant. Location was good, into a residential area of the town and easy to reach if you print the map of the surrounding streets."

    Luz Adrianza, South Africa
