Sue makes the place. If she is there you really must stay. The best BNB hostess I have ever known. Multiple stays over the years. She always remembers the little things. The right coffee, the breakfast preferences. She is absolutely the most positive person we have met. Clean and easy rooms. Simple and lovely. Peaceful!

The hostess (Sorry, I forgot her name) is extremely helpfull. She helped us with information about the Kruger National Park and had a lot of stories about South Africa which were nice and interesting. The rooms are good and clean, every day new towels and a free parking spot. After one night we (5 guys) decided to stay two more...

Sue is the most friendly guest house owner I ever had pleasure to meet. She will make you feel at home away from your own. When we needed something she was always willing to assist. There was lot of space for our dog to run. The swimming pool and garden was very clean.

It's a nice place with large rooms and comfortable bed. Lacks a bit of style and garden could be a bit prettier as it has the makings of a beautiful garden. And really needs aircon. But we always stay here and breakfast is fabulous and it's just one night and very central. Sue and her staff are very friendly and...

Three of my friends and I stayed in room 10 (I'm pretty sure that was the number) for a night on our way to Kruger. This was a great break in the drive from Johannesburg to Kruger after a long flight! The room was simple but had everything we needed. The pool was relaxing to chill by and stick our...

This guesthouse was not the fanciest we have visited in South Africa, but it worked for us for the one night stopover in Nelspruit on the way to Kruger National park. Room was very large and came equipped with a refrigerator, coffee maker and microwave. Safe parking and good internet. Breakfast was ok, but lacked a bit of the variety...

We stayed here on short notice for one night and really enjoyed it. Located at the end of the street in a residential area this property may at first seem difficult to find but that is not really the case. Using Google Map worked for us. Our room to accommodate three adults was a bargain at less than 700 Rand...
