We only stayed for a stopover between Kruger National Park and our flight to Cape Town but would have loved to have stayed longer. Willemien was an excellent host at El Roi. She was very responsive to messages and clear instructions were given about finding the lodge. On arrival, Willemien noticed we were travelling with an infant and gave us a free upgrade to the large cottage with a bath. She also easily accommodated an upgrade for my mum to a sunny and larger room. We ended up spending more time in the sunny room as the large cottage was quite cold and a bit dark but it had plenty of space.
While they had no food options onsite, Willemien organised pizza delivery for us on her phone and gave us good advice for places in White River to eat. We would happily return here in future.

It was a great stay, with friendly staff and management.
The rooms are comfortable and clean.

The grounds are well kept and the groundsmen are always around. The location of the guest house is as such that you can be anywhere in 10 minutes. Parking is convenient and easy access for

All in all, it is a great place to stay.

The owners are very accommodating towards additional requests and arrangements can be made for early check-in or late departure. Own remote control access of entrance gate is very convenient. Located in a quiet, tranquil area.

a distance from the village after a piece of unpaved road you arrive in an oasis of peace where you will be welcomed by a very friendly hostess. The lodge is spacious and even when fully occupied it feels private. Our apartment had 3 bedrooms and a private garden with jacuzzi. The bathroom is relatively small, but adequate. However, the accommodation is very noisy, both between rooms and with the apartment located directly next to it. But after a day of swimming and pool everyone slept like a log.

The place is great, from the cleanliness of the rooms, to the lady who was assisting, very friendly and helpful lady. Only downside was the breakfast price, the booklet in the room stated that breakfast was R85 per head but we had to pay R125 per head which was so uncool. Overall great place.

Responded 04 Apr 2023
We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. You were lovely people to host and I enjoyed having you as our guests. Again I apologize for the outdated booklet. All of our prices and menus are now digital, and we no longer have printed booklets in the rooms. QR Codes are in the rooms, which you scan with your phone and all lodge details and prices are up to date. The R85 breakfast was before we were Vat registered. We are now Vat registered and had to add 15% VAT to all services and we also changed our breakfast so that Coffee and Juice, is included in our Breakfast rates. On our previous menu there was a choice between the two. So to clarify for future bookers: Our breakfast includes: Full continental breakfast, cereals, homemade muesli, yoghurt, fresh fruit, Full English Breakfast, 2 Eggs, Bacon, Grilled tomato, Chips, Toast, Preserves, Coffee and Fruit Juice. VAT included for R125 per person. The old booklet was removed from your room. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. We hope to see you again soon.

We chose this place to be near the airport KMIA. It was only seven minutes by car to the airport so that was good. It is also quite near Numbi gate in Kruger Park if you want to entry that gate. (45 min)
The lodge was very nice and cosy and easy to find even if it was not on the main road. We lived in cottage no 3 and this includes a private jacuzzi. Sadly we didn't use the jacuzzi because of some mix up from the staff together with load shedding but we had a very nice stay anyway. The cottage was big for two persons but sometimes it is nice just to have extra space. We didn't use the kitchen facilities but it seemed to be well equipped. We could easy have stayed for many days.
The owner was great and compensated us for not being able to use the jacuzzi so we were satisfied anyway.
The breakfast was very good and well made.The wifi was not so good in our cottage but was very good in the reception/breakfast area and that was only about 40 meters from the cottage.
The owner recommended some restaurants and we chose one of them, Magnolia, and were very satisfied. It was possible to order food with delivery to the lodge and the owner said that she could help us order but we chose to go to Magnolia in stead and we were very pleased.
It was a very familiar and friendly atmosphere at the lodge and we will definitely stay here again if we will return to these neighborhoods. Thank you Willemien for making our stay memorable.

Our stay at El Roi Guesthouse was very pleasant. The host was extremely helpful sharing information I was looking for and was also very considered about our needs with a toddler without me even asking for things. The people who worked at the bar/restaurant and hang out there were very welcoming and it felt warm. I have booked my next stay at the El Roi Guesthouse already and recommend with pleasure.

We have stayed regularly at El Roi throughout this year, and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a welcoming stay. Quiet, safe, excellent amenities. Perfect for families with an awesome play area and lovely pool to keep the kids entertained. It has become our home away from home and we cannot thank the team at El Roi enough.

We had a good stay at the lodge. My daughter enjoyed so much that she didn't wanna leave. We are definitely definitely going back there. I also like the fact that the location is private but you can still have access to other places.
