We arrived late at night and got greeted by the hostes who showed us our room. The power was out, so she lighted up two candles and showed us a little bit of the room and the main bulding. After that we did not see anything to any of the hosts until 5 min before we had to check out...

Nico was amazing, helpful, friendly and kind. The rooms were comfortable, clean and well decorated. Nico provided us with information on where to go, where to eat, and he put extra effort into getting my boarding pass printed! Best B and B I have ever stayed at! Thanks Nico.

We were warmly welcomed on our arrival in the evening. Nico promptly suggested a few places for dinner. The next day at breakfast, which costs R50 per person, the hosts cooked a simple but delicious breakfast and gave suggestions for the panaroma route and sights. We were staying in the furthest room from the living room which had some issue...

The owner of this place is great. We felt like we were part of the family. Every morning we were served delicious breakfast. There is beautiful garden in the front of the rooms. Guesthouse is not far from the main street but still you can relax in the beautiful garden and enjoy the tranquility.

Previous reviews are very accurate. Elephants nest is affordable and friendly. We enjoyed our stay here because of Mr Nico and other guest we met. Our room was comfortable, nothing too fussy. Everything you need including candles and flashlights ( spent evening with no power after a spectacular thunder storm). The room /porch faces a lovingly cared for garden. Chairs...

We stayed here after 4 nights in Kruger park and although the weather was abysmal, the welcome in its guest house really made a difference to how positive we were feeling about Graskop. The owner who greeted us was very warm and inviting. He didn't only show us round but also gave us some advice about the activities we had...

Un inizio estremamente positivo del nostro viaggio in Sudafrica. Il gestore molto gentile ci ha dato preziose indicazioni e provvidenzialmente ha aggiustato perfettamente il sedile del conducente della nostra auto a noleggio che dopo pochi chilomentri aveva perduto i bulloni di fissaggio rendendo la guida difficile. Colazione memorabile per tenere tranquillamente fino a sera e buoni consigli per mangiare. Le...

My partner and I found a room at the Elephant's Nest right at the last minute, and we were very glad we did. When coming to the guesthouse we were warmly welcomed by the owner. He showed us in, advised to keep the car in the inner parking for security reasons, and showed us to our double bedded room which...
