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.

My friends and I hosted a pyjamas party for a friend of ours, the guesthouse staff welcomed us so well, the rooms were so clean, spacious and beautiful. Everything was perfect, the wifi was connecting so well. We had a fabulous stay at El Roi Guesthouse and we are looking forward to booking another stay.

The place was wonderful and the owner and staff very friendly and helpful. We had a great time, it was value for money. The roads however were not that great during our visit due to recent rainfall I suggest people should use 4 x 4 cars when visiting the place. Either than that if you need some peace and quietness this is the rights place for you.

Thank you for your comments, you staying during the December holidays and unfortunately the Road services do not operate during this time, we also had excessive rain over this period. Much more than our regular rainfall. The road services will be coming regularly again to scrape the road, so 4 x 4 is not a necessity. We are happy that you enjoyed the tranquility, we hope to see you again soon.

We enjoyed our family Vacation. The cottages were clean. Should include more activities or facilities for kids. Also more bathrooms, as cottages accommodate lot of people. Atleast have one 4plate stove especially for the large family cottages.

Thank you for the great review. We are currently in the process of adding a driving range and are very excited about it. We also have a large swimming pool with different levels for all ages, we have a 3-level treehouse and playground for kids, with swings, slides, see-saw and trampoline. We also just added a 100 x 100 m lawn for ball playing activities, the grass was planted last week! We also have a communal bathroom available and extra toilets in case the bathroom in your cottage is occupied. We hope to see you again soon.

Great location and great activities. Rooms are clean. The only problem is electricity, they should install a backup generator and also hot water when your neighbours bath before you, you will end up bathing with cold water. Nevertheless great place

We had a lovely 1 week stay at El Roi, Johann and Willamine were wonderful hosts going out of the extra mile to accommodate us. The lodge is beautifully situated with lots of tress and nature around. There are lots of nice bbq facilities and the restaurant is amazing, with both hosts being professional chefs. Within 30 min drive we got to the Krüger Park where we saw elephants, zebras and lots of other game. The lodge is only 10 min drive from white river with restaurants and all the shops you need. We will definitely be back and can highly recommend.
