You won't find a more comfortable, peaceful and quiet place to rest. The rooms are very well furnished, clean spacious. The service is absolutely friendly and quite entertaining, and very knowledgeable about the the town, the surrounding areas and all that it has to offer. Dave is the most accommodating host we have met and really made our stay very memorable. So much good advice. We will go back over and over. Advice- call in advance for reservations because the word is out there and is a favorite. p.s. their pool is a real bonus!
We highly recommend this accommodation. This is the second time we have stayed at Sunbird, the rooms are spacious and clean. Set In beautiful gardens. Breakfast was lovely and people are so obliging. Very close to the Kruger gate so if you wanting to spend a night or two passing through this is the place.
We recently stayed at Sunbird for a week to visit the Kruger Park daily. Dave is such a great host - he welcomed us warmly and served our breakfasts every morning with a smile. When my father-in-law got injured and we needed to find a doctor, Dave was there to recommend someone for us. The breakfasts were wonderful! The selection of fruit, muesli, yogurt, banana bread and other cold goods was plentiful, and the hot cooked foods were delicious as well, and the variety is superb (eggs basically any way you like, with toast, bacon, mushrooms, pork sausage, tomato, etc - really the most fantastic and customizable options available). The tea selection at breakfast was also great for the tea-lover like myself. The rooms are spacious, kept beautifully clean and are pleasantly…
Spent two nights here over the Easter weekend; lovely accommodation, excellent breakfast and very helpful host. Even had time to relax by the pool and enjoy the garden! A quick drive up the road and you are at the Phalaborwa Kruger gate, which is ideal. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
6 of us travelled through Kruger in February and this was one of our stopovers.Spent 2 nights here. Beautiful grounds, gracious hosts who were really helpful. Beautiful cook to order breakfast. Rooms were very comfortable.
