A huge thank you to the management ( Christal Kraemer) and staff of Purple Gecko who went out of their way to make my guests feel comfortable over the long weekend. Your service and willingness to assist has been exceptional and highly appreciated. We look forward to booking in with you guys in the future knowing that our family are well taken care of with you.

Will definitely recommend you to all my friends and family. You always enjoy staying with you. Home away from home. Couples will also enjoy the privacy. Your place is very easy to find because of boards placed in the street

Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. Felt like home. The music that greets you in Reception is so relaxing. Room was beautiful and spacious, spotlessly clean and smelt fresh. The bed was huge and the linen on the bed was so clean and white. DSTV and honesty bar in rooms. Food was mouth watering. Relaxing atmosphere. Wifi was sound. The spa adds to this luxurious place. Excellent for business trips as well as a place to stay overnight. Sparkling pool!!! was an additional plus point.

I had a wonderful night's stay at Purple Gecko. The staff were friendly and super helpful with everything I needed.
The room was very clean and tidy. There were plenty blankets, which I was grateful for because it was a cold night. Both dinner and breakfast were very tasty and filling.

I stayed several nights at purple gecko for a business trip and would gladly do so again. The staff are polite, professional and very helpful. The guesthouse is veru accomodating specifocally with meal times. The rooms are clean and very calming - perfect to return to after a stressful day. The rooms are beautiful with large bathrooms. The food was good as well.

Rooms was very very neat, beautiful guesthouse. Will definitely visit again. Only one suggestion is to bring showers into the rooms. Bathrooms for big guys to small. This was the room I slept in - do not know about the other rooms

I enjoyed the spacious room. Checking in and out was easy. The location was good. Noise levels low. Sufficient DSTV channels to watch. Load shedding - the inverters was of great help when in stage 4. Tranquility.....
