This was our first lodge of our 3 week trip through South Africa. A perfect start of our holiday in this beautiful house in typical English colonial style. Very nice room, perfect kitchen and great hospitality.

We booked half board so we stayed in the evening for dinner. We were the only customers. The food was good. The breakfast was okay. With... More

During our stay we were the only guests. The guesthouse itself was good. However, about 10 km from Tzaneen. For diner you have to drive to Tzaneen and back. Bed was too short for me. Personel was very friendly.

I was very impressed with this quiet place in the mountains. Nicely appointed rooms and a great breakfast. Stayed here for a wedding nearby and the silence was what I needed. Very friendly helpful owners and staff. Just check the Google map coordinates before travelling.
