Man this is breath taking scenery and affordable accommodation. Situated on a farm outside of Elliot I felt at home. The team of border collies we a treat and seemed to be close at hand doing what dogs do. The accommodation is well appointed and the breakfast served in your room was a nice touch. If you seeking peace a...

The scenery is stunning...beautiful farm, handsome animals, wonderful Border Collies, immaculate property.... I was in a suite/room vs a cottage which was fine as it was just an overnight stay. It seemed like the accommodation was taken over by contractors working in the area. Unfriendly concrete steps in to the room...with unattractive, bare surrounding, surprising especially considering how beautiful the...

Having read some of the previous reviews of a negative nature I believe they couldn't be further from the truth. Considering the accommodation will cost you a mere R350 per person sharing, I am confused as to why previous guests are so blatantly damaging with their words to what is a Stunningly beautiful and well run guesthouse. The rooms are...

Hi JJ and Ockert. Thank you for my wonderful week stay on the farm. Such peaceful surroundings with amazing views of the Guardians. I was very comfortable in the lovely cottage, makes it very easy to be away from home with the facilities on offer. Thank you both for taking such good care of Ian and making his stay welcome...

When we spoke to the owner JJ she said there was a gravel road leading to the place, but my Prius should not have any problem. And for most of the road she was correct. However just before we drove in there is a big dip and two large humps which caused the undercarriage to scrape across the rough stones....

A lovely farm, in a country atmosphere, hidden in the most beautiful mountainous area, situated outside Elliot. A place where one is instantly refreshed after a long days travel. Despite us providing the wrong booking date, Ockert and J.J. went the extra mile to accommodate us in a charming room attached to their beautiful sandstone and thatch house. They opened...

Had a wonderful stay in this beautiful getaway just outside of Elliot. It is in a stunning location, and the cottages feel luxurious, but without losing the farm-style charm that The Guardians offers. It makes a perfect stop-over for a long drive, but you'll wish you could stay longer!

Occasionally, you will stumble across a place and a love every minute of it, this is how we felt about The Guardians. Situated about 4 - 5 km’s out of the town of Elliot at the foothills of the (Southern) Drakensburg, it’s the perfect place to unwind and relax. Our hosts were charming and friendly and we were quickly accommodated...
