Just to start, I will go back if I need to stay in Randburg again. But I think "4 star" might be pushing it. Let me start with the pros: Swimming pool. I really enjoyed the breakfast and hospitality during the meal. Secluded and no traffic noise. Security. Parking. And now the cons. These are things I kind of expect...

Thanks for your balanced comments. We do not have air-conditioning in any of our rooms due to environmental considerations. We do make use of fans. The shampoo container is required for 4 star grading, but we note your view on this matter. The faded light through the bathroom window can be eliminated by closing the bathroom door. Some of our...

We were a party of 5 adults and 3 children and decided to book into Klip-Els Guest Lodge as it was the nearest accommodation which we were able to book into for the weekend of Disney on Ice. The weekend cost us R6600-00 which I would say is very expensive for the service and accommodation which we got. I questioned...

I am obviously upset about this review. It is necessary to place Sandy's comments in perspective. She asked for accommodation for two families in close proximity to each other. The only available rooms were a four star graded chalet upstairs and a non-graded chalet downstairs. We usually draw our clients' attention to the fact that a room is not four...

We acknowledge your complaints and appreciate the feedback. Please note the following: We have an Iveri card system for payments,that is cost-effective and easy to use for the past 15 years. Many guesthouses use this system. We have 2 extra blankets in each room and if a client ask, we hand extra out. We checked, and couldn't find a dripping...

I stars here for 3 weeks last year when I was on a nursing placement in local townships near by! As I spent a lot of time here during the days and evening I met a few staff, Mpo and Dora were wonderful. Helpful and very friendly!

I was booked here to make it convenient to catch a very early flight out of Lanseria Airport. The rooms are actually log cabins but with every amenity you need and more. There is even a Telly and heater in case you're not too comfortable with a tradition affair. Dinner was brought to your room where you can either have...

This was the fourth year in a row that I stayed at KlipEls during the Getaway Show at the Dome and I have never been sorry. The first three years I stayed in one of the cabins, but this year I booked one of the garden rooms and it turned out to be a much better choice. It was just...

This was our second visit to Klip Els. As with the first visit 2 years ago, the rooms were clean, spacious and well looked after. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The location is fairly central and the grounds are lovely. Highly recommended!
