Overall very good. Hosts was very nice, full breakfast was very good, beautiful location. Not much privacy if that is something that is important to you. My husband and I booked the Sable room, the "honeymoon suite", and the mattress was terrible, it really needs replacement. Also, for the price you pay you would at least expect fairly good quality coffee in the room, even if it's instant coffee. I think we got Ricoffy or something similar as it was in a glass jar with no name on it.

Our stay at Matusadona GL was most enjoyable. It's close proximity to other places of interest was great. Our stay was made pleasurable by the accommodating staff and charming manageress. We were able to enjoy the gathering of friends on their front porch and found the rooms very clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were tasty, fresh and filling. We would definately consider returning.

This was the best weekend away in a long time.The morning views are breathtaking, and the service was extremely great,& they have the most loving dogs ever. The room was stunning and our little private party on the deck was the best. The owners Anne & Craig are simply amazing, thank you for all the help with the party & the amazing breakfast.

I had a great stay with my patner,the environment is very chilled, relaxed and love the nature feel all around. Perfect escape from the busy city life. Very peaceful to rest during the day and secure too. The staff is phenominal with their service especially Thembi, she was so helpful and too kind to us

What a beautiful stay. John, the caretaker, was so hospitable upon arrival. The room was neat & clean with an amazing shower. A generator meant no power cuts during the stay. Complimentary tea, coffee & sherry in the room. Woke up in the morning to wild springbok & guinea fowl walking past the room & the lovely lady who prepared breakfast could not have been more helpful. 10/10 recommend the stay.

Breakfast could be improved by offering an alternative Cerial to Muesli e.g. Corn Flakes.
Similarly, White bread and Sugar could be offered as an alternative to Brown.
Butter should be provided, not Margerine!
All Domestic Staff working within the dinning area and kitchen should wear some sort of uniform.
It would also be good for a member of management at some point during ones stay, to check on the guests at Breakfast time to ensure their needs are being met.
Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay and would certainly recommend Matusadona Guest Lodge to anyone wishing to spend time in the Hillcrest area.

Dear Sir, Thank you for your feedback. Staff do have uniform and we should have butter in the small disposables. I will address this. The manager should be on hand and addressing our guests queries and issues. I will address this tomorrow. Regards Craig Owner

What an absolute pleasure it was staying at Matusadona Guest Lodge. It felt like we were staying in a piece of heaven. The birdlife and Impala in the gardens were stunning and gave plenty of photo opportunities for me the avid photographer. Our room had the most amazing views and sitting on the veranda overlooking the mountains and trees was truly restful. Breakfast in the morning was made by the amazing staff and was just perfect to keep us going all day. There was a bar area which was used by locals and those staying at the lodge and would be the perfect sundowner setting. Thank you to the staff and owners of Matusadona for looking after us so well. We would definitely enjoy more visits there and highly recommend it for a getaway from reality.

Matusadona was a breath of fresh air. Idyllic scenery with hosts that go the extra mile to ensure that you are comfortable and well taken care of. I would certainly recommend this for anyone who wants a relaxing time away from the hustle and bustle.

John and Russell, thank you for the wonderful welcome we received when we arrived at your Guest House. The rooms were warm, welcoming and very well equipped for our short stay before Comrades 2022. The private game welcome at the gate was most impressive, even if you were not aware of it!
The Guinea Fowl welcome by the front door, was like stepping into a home. A good meal provide by special request, a hot shower and a very warm bed just did the trick to refresh us for the big day that lay ahead. We are definitely coming back shortly for a weekend.
