We stayed at the Home Away Guesthouse, also now known as Butlers Crown, for a weekend in May 2024 and it was fantastic!!! They welcomed us with open arms, made our stay very comfortable and even offered to light a fire for us should we have wanted to enjoy a braai during our visit to Klerksdorp.

The room was great, I could not fault anything (and I can be very picky), the bed was great, the linen clean, bathroom was done very well with good quality towels. We really had everything we needed for our stay. Do not even get me started on the breakfast, we have stayed in a few guesthouses / b&b's before and never had such a well presented and tasty breakfast, it felt like we sat in a Michelin star restaurant.

I would recommend this guesthouse to anyone AND everyone. Service great, location great, room great but most importantly the hosts make this place, they were present without being invasive which is a balance not everyone is capable of having.

We stayed two nights whilst visiting Nampo in Bothaville. Our unit was clean and comfortable, beautifully decorated. The bathroom is spacious and we had everything we needed to have a perfect little getaway. We had an Eskom power outage but we had a lovely little oil lamp which meant we weren't in the dark and there are plenty of takeaways and restaurants in the area. if you are not dinning in. There are springboks grazing in a pasture next to the driveway which just made the setting even more perfect. We will certainly be back next time we go to Nampo.

We enjoyed a relaxed and wonderful stay at Home Away Guesthouse. Dot has prepared dinner as well as breakfast for us and the food was excellent! The attention to detail made it even more special.
Home away guesthouse has top class mattresses even to the most picky of guests. PLUS they have this lovely serene and tranquil environment where one can really relax. Although so near to all the convenience stores and shops, it feels as if one is somewhere very far from a bustling town.
I can highly recommend Home Away Guesthouse. And do not forget to include meals!

We had a wonderful stay at Home Away. Dot Butler is an excellent hostess and we will recommend to all travellers to check in at this Guest House. Very good breakfasts are also available. Room was cleaned daily and we received fresh towels as well. Luscious garden with a few Springboks to entertain us during breakfast and sundowners.

I would recommend anyone to stay over. Hospitality was great, service was awesome. Everything inside the room was neatly in place and it made me feel at home. Outside was great, looking at all the spring buck walking around

Thank you Dorothy

Great hospitality, high quality accommodation. Rooms are spacious, well equipped with functional layout. Air-conditioning and the sparkling pool help to beat the searing heat! Lovely quiet area with guesthouse hidden from traffic and other noise.

Our room was clean, nice and big (open plan). What a joy also to getting our breakfast served in our room ! And the antelope was a sight for sore eyes. Peaceful and tranquil guest house and Dot is a real gem
