The room was comfortable with a spacious bathroom and hot water. Bed excellent and a view of greenery. Trevor, our host, went the extra mile to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We had our daughter's baby shower at the guest house and Trevor really helped enormously in making it a memorable and fun occasion.

After arriving quite late due to vehicle issues. We were still welcomed by Trevor and his team. Trevor is a scholar & a gentleman & went beyond what was expected. Beautiful setting & I will revisit :)

Booked in overnight to attend a wedding function. We were the only guests due to Covid cancellations. We were very satisfied with our stay. We took a walk to the dam and saw a herd of impala. Trevor was a great host and visiting the Midlands Meander the following day was a pleasant way to end the weekend.

Trevor and Susan were excellent hosts. From the first moment, we stepped from the hot African sun into the cool thatched interior, Trevor made us feel right at ease and at home. Sundowners enjoyed on the stoep, local knowledge shared, to “ what birds is that?” Trevor is a fountain of knowledge. Great suggestion to eat at the Linga Lapa where we name dropped Trevor to the the owner, Matt.and needles to say, we were spoiled. Also need to mention the beautiful view and the many animals on the property. Duiker, rooi bok zebra, springbok. We did not find the leopard footprints, next time.....
