We find it very expensive for what we get. The geyser was leaking in the toilet and we had to put towels on the floor. We reported the problem - but nobody attend to it. The room was not serviced. Fixed menu - no choices.

Set un a great location, that us where it ends. This place is run down, its staff clearly willing and fairly pleasant but far from competent and its food ar very best very average. The Vakentines special was simple false advertising and a low pou t was when our steak knives were, after a long and unexplained delay, removed and replaced, and we were served KFC-like disgusting chicken in small portions. The room leaked in 3 places. The level of a backpackers at prices which do not March that standard. Disgusting overall and will not merit a return visit or recommendation.

Mariaan from Boelamien referred us to Mogalakwena for Christmas lunch. Isabella was very professional and handled the booking quickly and provided us with a menu and costs. Grounds and gardens are very neat and the X-factor must be the rim flow pool on the river. The venue was clean and had a real Christmas feel to it. Staff were neatly dressed and tables neatly set with white table cloths draped to the floor. Food was great, well presented and tasty. It was really a memorale day and a Christmas that we will remember for a very long time. Thank you to all involved who worked and treated us well.

After a hellish 10 hour drive, I finally made it to this pet-friendly B&B. I arrived and it was hours before I sought my room, for good reason! The hosting couple were so warm and welcoming that we ended up chatting for the better part of the first evening. I elected to stay an extra night (thankfully they had availability - the guest house itself was exceptionally busy as it was peak season and clearly a popular spot!). Close to all amenities and equipped with everything you could desire, my dogs safely enjoyed the garden whilst I enjoyed the friendly company and atmosphere. I would definitely seek this B&B out in future. Oh! And the breakfast!! Super delicious and more than ample.
