Only the location.
Room size, bath rooms,single bed, bedding and towels and curtains-this place needs an upgrade seriously!
The location is perfect, next to the river and opposite of Kruger. Hippo's are in front of the guesthouse and we saw elephants passing by every day. Also, the pool was nice after a day in Kruger. The Kruger entrace is only 15 minutes by car. We did a full day safari with a guide booked through the guesthouse, which was very good. The decoration of the guesthouse is a bit "love it or hate it", it is like a museum (we loved it). Staff is super friendly and the food was good.
- 10% service charge is added to the total bill and applies even to third party services (eg safari) booked through the guesthouse, which is a bit annoying (we rather tip the safari driver ourselves) - The room needs more lights and power sockets, hardly possible to charge phones, powerbanks and camera's at the same time - No mineral water bottles supplied in the room
Very friendly and like being at home
all was good
The service was super helpful (they even took us to the city center a couple times) and the food was very very nice. Good views from common areas.
The expectations generated by the pictures in booking disappointed us. Rooms were small, old and with no views, we had dinner included and on the last day they told us that we had to pay for all the drinks taken during dinner (and at a very expensive price) and the tours that they offered were quite expensive.
Location is perfect for kruger.
