stayed here many times as this is where the company books us in, but this place is in desperate need of an upgrade. while the room could be what you could call cozy and quite tranquil, it could really do with an upgrade/repaint. The staff are quite friendly but not very professional, like nocking on your door for laundry where... More

Thatchers is not just a guest house, it is a home away from home. The staff treat you like part of the family. The food is excellent and you always receive service with a smile. I would recommend Thatchers to anyone visiting Witbank or the surrounding areas. I had to postpone my arrival date as I was sick, when I... More

The staff is friendly and professional. The rooms are comfortable and clean. I've stayed in many guest houses in the eMalahleni (Witbank) area and this... More

If you have to go to Witbank, this guest house is the place to stay. It is nestled in the town itself essentially covering a complete city block. Most rooms are like little self contained cottages (but not with self catering facilities), these carefully arranged to provide appropriate privacy. Breakfast is included in the daily rate, this being available in... More

Although Witbank would hardly seem to qualify as a holiday destination, Thatcher's is so beautiful, tranquil, luxurious, surprising and indulgent that it's worth visiting Witbank just to stay there. The owner is an artist and her artistic touch is evident in every square inch of the property and all the rooms. Every tiny detail has been thought of and catered... More

Myself and my wife stayed at the Thatchers for two weeks from 26th September 2014. The little 1 Bedroom cottage we stayed in was very clean and and was well equipped.
