Very nice and clean room. Big swimming pool. Nice view over Hazyview. We enjoyed our stay for two days. The dinner was nice but relative expensive. In the morning there are monkeys that wake you up but we enjoyed watching them.

Beautiful and Old style Hazyview. We arrived at check-in time, and was warmly invited in, shown around, and given a short tour of where and what. It is peaceful, tranquil, and the missing tv in the bedroom is a blessing in disguise. Attention to detail is fabulous, nice good beds and linen, ensured a good night's rest. As there is...

Illara could be running a 5 star hotel on the Côte d'Azur, but she has luckily decided to set up shop in Mpumalanga. What a delight - a beautiful, comfortable and extremely friendly guest house within an hour of both Kruger and the Panorama Route. Illara and Robbie are excellent hosts, and the dinners that Illara whips up to serve...

Very nice 5 star guest house , near Kruger national park. There are only 3 guest houses, guaranteeing privacy and nice atmosphere. Owners are taking extremely good care of you and are making your vacation a success. Good service, good food. 20minutes for Kruger. Highly recommended

During our visit of two nights we enjoyed the magnificent location, looking out over the hills to the city of hazyview. Robbie and Ilara were are very friendly, they made us feel like we were at home. They cooked and served two perfect diners and breakfasts. A perfect guesthouse when you visit the Drakensbergen and panoramaroute.
