Fabulous beautiful location, and perfect for playing Leopards Creek, which is a great course. Would have given 5 but the rooms are a little tired and need upgrading. Lovely friendly staff, especially Margie. And an excellent game drive with Sean into the Krüger. Can’t answer the value question as this was part of a package and we don’t know how much it cost!

Хороший отель за свои деньги

Reviewed By Марина И

Были в отеле в феврале. Останавливались на 3 дня. Понравилось расположение отеля. В 5 минутах автобусная остановка. В 4 минутах есть супермаркет. Если потратить 12 минут и не поделиться можно дойти до большого супермаркета Spar. Теперь про отель Элегант Гест Хаус. Приехали на автобусе из Йоханнесбурга в 3 часа ночи. Добрались до отеля за 5 минут пешком. Забыли предупредить заранее. Ворота были закрыты. Думали не заселят. Позвонили по телефону который был написан на двери. Разбудили хостес. Нас заселили через 5 мин. Номера не большие, но чистота и убераются каждый день. В номере есть кондиционер, холодильник,чайник,телевизор с кабельным телевидением и шкаф в номере есть розетка с переходником на европейские вилки. Ванная соединена с туалетом. Достаточно просторная. Персонал дружелюбный. Старается выполнить любую просьбу. Разговаривают только на английском. Начали расспрашивать по поводу сафари в Крюгер парке. Устроили нам сафари за приемлемую цену только для нас двоих. От отеля остались только положительный впечатление.

The best Kruger National Park bed and breakfast!

Reviewed By OriginalMisterG

I have chauffeured VIP tourists from all over the world, and I have stayed at all the best hotels in the Kruger National Park, yet nothing compares to the experience at Villa Langa. Andre is a magnificent host, and he is literally a living library of information! He know the Kruger Park better than anyone I have ever met. The best routes, it's prime wildlife locations and the times when you will find them. He personally finds out where you would like to go, and then figures out exactly how he can help improve your experience and gives you all the insider secrets to add to your itinerary! Colani and Gift are simply brilliant at service delivery! They are ready to assist 24/7 and it is really incomparable, even to the top establishments that are 10 fold the price. They simply cannot wait to be of service and it's remarkable to see dedication at that level.. A little note that I didn't see mentioned was the fact that you are given an emergency button on your keys that will send a security response team to Villa Langa in minutes <3 I also got a tour of the rest of the rooms, which were avalible during one of the nights during my stay, and they are all pristine! I simply cannot wait to go back ^^,

Wonderful stay in Malelane

Reviewed By bekkeralta1008

I accompanied my husband that was on a businesstrip, and it was refreshing to experience a nice clean updated place to stay. We did not expect the wonderful view on the banks of the crocodile river, and the welcome visits of the elephants, crocodiles, bucks and hippo's as near as on the other side of the fence. Thanks for friendly happy staff that defnitely walked the extra mile. We enjoyed good quality food excellently prepared.

What can be more refreshing than sipping on your beverage while watching the spectacular sunset only Africa can showcase, a variety of feathered friends and other regular visitors on the banks of the river?

Great location, great room and great staff.

Reviewed By Daron M

We stopped at Kruger View Chalets before starting a 10 day trip inside Kruger Park. The location was perfect for entering at Malelane gate, which is a straight shot from the Johannesburg airport. It was great to spend the night at Kruger View and get final preparations done before entering the park. The staff was great and the room was very nice. Great dinner at the Deck next door. Highly recommend staying at Kruger View. We even saw Elephants and Hippos from the room

Lovely scenery with dam just outside rooms. Good restaurant with good food. But cleanliness fell very short. A room that is not clean is very distracting but enjoyed the stay overall. Highlight - Spa treatment.

Why do you have PIZZAS on your menu if you can not make a proper pizza???

Reviewed By SusanA3093

The most horrible thing on a plate and you call it a pizza!!! Please check: • your base for a pizza...maybe tomato base? • your selection of cheese appropriate... • if garlic is mentioned on t menu , ADD it!..., make it fresh! • don,t be shy with your fillings • a pizza should taste fresh and juicy.... not over baked in an oven! OR..... Delete PIZZA ON YOUR MENU OR...... Send your chef on a pizza training course!
