We were really looked after so well. Arrival and book in was effortless. The family room was exactly what we needed. Lovely clean pool and gardens with beautiful birds. Away from the bustle of the town.

My colleague and I got to the guest only to be told that the guest is full and they did not have our bookings. We asked if the booking were done telephonic or by email. We were then told that the lady in the office did not give her the email bookings. They then found us alternate accommodation which was not good.

It was one of the nosiest places I have ever slept in. Total night mare. The staff was amazing but experience horrible. Drunken noisy guests late at night and around 3am I could hear their entire conversation from my room I literally had to wake up and go knock on their door to quiten down

Response from Kim Blevin, General Manager at The Guest House Pongola
Responded 28 Dec 2020
Dear Nonkululelo Thank you for your feedback. The room was clean for your arrival but housekeeping did slip up on day 2 of your stay when you were in the room during the morning. The housekeeping staff should have asked you to vacate the room so that they could clean and make the beds. We do apologise for that and closer supervision will ensure that it doesn't happen again. As for the masks we will also make sure that staff wear them - even in the 45 degree heat, here in Pongola. Kind Regards Angela Collins Manager The Guest House Pongola

The Guest House Pongola is a great stay for those wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life. The tropical garden is a great place to relax and their pool is well kept. The rooms are comfortable. The breakfasts are top quality. The manager, Michelle, was a delight.

The staff are friendly and the rooms are extremely clean. The breakfast was really good! Pongola, the town, is not the best destination, unless you drive far and need a bed to rest. The bed was too soft for our liking. Showers were good.
