A very warm welcome ,and helpful staff........A map was printed out for us with directions to the nearest shopping centre. Room 5 was spacious and looked out over the front garden and drive.Two of the handles on the chest of drawers fell off and the hook from the bathroom door had broken off and found in a drawer!The bathroom needed up dating ,limited space for putting personal belongings and no face flannels or bathrobes.In spite of these comments ,we enjoyed our visit but a little bit of updating would have made it much better

Generally good but feel it has gone down a bit since our last visit in 2009. The whole place is looking a little tired and is need of some maintenance. The mosquitoes were bad in our room. We felt the staff were disinterested in doing any work - for example we had to go looking for the waitress for breakfast, my husband went into the kitchen most mornings in search of someone to do our breakfast and the one morning it took so long our son left without having his. We also had to lay our own table outside in the morning, plus we opened and closed the gate a lot as no one was around.

We were received very well on arrival. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. We were checked in properly and everything was thoroughly explained as was the case over the phone when the booking was done. The surrounding area is quite pleasant and the guest house is very neat both outside and inside. The rooms are very neat and up to expectation. The pool was also very clean. The breakfast was also devine with a variety to choose from. The kitchen staff was also quite polite and helpful so was the security officials. Regards, Mmane Kobue

Really not much to recommend the Palm House, unless September is not the best choice and may improve in the season. Facilities nothing like the advertising, practically a one man band from arrival at the gates through to leaving somewhat disappointed for the first time after many previous visits to South Africa.

Room tip: No opportunity to see other rooms or suites.
