I stopped at this hotel about 2 weeks ago, I was attending a wedding in the near by lodge. I booked my room a month in advance and paid R950 for it with no breakfast. The things I did not like: - the room is very small and dark - they only provide one large towel. I had to fight...

We went to a wedding nearby and needed a place to stay overnight. When we got to the premises we were informed that the power went out. Naturally we needed electricity to get ready. They immediately upgraded us to a honeymoon suite at one of their other premises with no extra charge. Thank you to the supervisor at Funky Stay...

We stayed there two nights and the place is very quiet. There is not much to do in the surrounding area and it is quite difficult to find the place at night. The people at the reception are not always there and you have to look for them if you need anything. Breakfast is very basic

Just outside of Modimolle (Nylstroom), modelled on a "sleep and leave" idea - so not a place with tonnes of activities. However, what they have is excellently maintained and well presented with a sense of pride. The rooms are immaculate and very bright and welcoming. There are some reasonable TV channels, tea, coffee, towels etc and free WiFi. It is...

The venue, dressed up in multiple colours, with the help of the friendly Margaret and Sylus, made it an enjoyable stay. The restaurant unfortunately is only open when there is enough visitors but with Modimolle only 4 km on the R101, that is not a problem. This is a room only venue. No self-catering facilities. They will offer you a...

Since we were driving North from Johansberg we decided to pull off for an overnight rest. We found this crazy little place called Funky Stay. There isnt a lot going on and in fact, even though, they advertise their restaurant, it was closed since it was a weekday. It is very very peaceful. No real amenities but the beds were...
