We needed a stop over between Graskop and Johannesburg, and this was the perfect place! Very homely and comfortable and the best part of all was the delicious home cooked meal prepared by Jaco, who was looking after the place while the owners were away. He did a sterling job as chef and host for the evening and we would...

As a stop over on your way to Kruger Park this is a very convenient and friendly stop with good hospitality and everything you need in the rooms. Meal sizes may be too big but the people are friendly and very accommodating. Had a great stay.

A very good guest lodge to stop over on the way to Kruger or Blyde River Canyon. We spent one night and had excellent talks and very good diner. Breakfast buffet was ok. But, we never got such an excellent worldclass omelette served. Forget everything else and order it! The room was excellent and had everything what's needed.
