I wish I could stay more than only one night!
The location is perfect for people like us who looked for a remote place to enjoy the nature. The cottage is very cosy, the hosts are extremely friendly and welcoming!
- The outstanding hospitality of the two hosts Monica and Dave. - The room was beautiful, clean, big. - The view, surroundings. - Mufata :-) - And of course the lovely and tasteful food Monica made.
To be honest: nothing; it was just perfect
Monika and Dave are lovely people and they wil do every thing for you. We were staying there for 3 nights; thus much too short. The nearby Markele Park is very beatifull and a must to visit. The breakfast is very good and the dinner is excellent. Monika's meals are fantastic!! Monika and Dave: THANK YOU
It was an incredibly relaxing getaway from the start. Monika and Dave makes you feel extremely welcome and the location is superb. All in all great and will return.
That we had to leave again!
Everything....it was our second visit and there will definitely be a third. The view from the cottage is fantastic and Dave and Monika make you feel at home. Spend a day at Pilanesberg with Dave and we loved it. And to come 'home' to Monika's cooking after a long day of wildlife spotting is the best you can get!
a very warm hospitality wellcomes you- you shouldn't miss Monika's excellent homemade food.Monika and Dave are always there to help you in any case and what to do. And to be on a walk with Dave is really a special highlight, because of his love for nature.
Quite a long way from town and could be difficult to find in dark
Friendly owners. Nice evening meal, reasonably priced wine. Baboons in the mountain area behind property - but not on property itself.
There pool was too dirty with dead insects
Bedroom set up is perfect
No tv in the room. Poor water pressure in the shower
Spectacularly scenery and very relaxing atmosphere. Tastefull decor in the room
Had such a lovely stay! Monika and Dave were excellent hosts and the rooms were great. No TV in the rooms (hard drive of downloads to browse through though), but actually had no issue with this as we got to spend more time together! Will definitely be going again =)
I can't fill in Question 1. We were Mother and grown up daughter
Superb atmosphere, clean and attractive, attentive staff.
Dave & Monika are great hosts. She's a nice Cook and dave does the dishes! We enjoid the stay and hope many people Will follow us!
Personalised high quality service and attention to detail of a boutique hotel at budget prices. Very knowledgeable about fauna and flora.
Exceptional hosts who went out of their way to make us feel at home. They made clear the fact that they had dogs and were not set up for children before we went, which was fine for us but should be considered by those considering going there.
Very hospitable and friendly owners. The relationship was quickly that of friendship rather than client / service provider. We had a very relaxed and enjoyable weekend away at Marula Lodge.
The early morning view was absolutely beautiful from our room. And the breakfast was very tasty.
Warm welcome Excellent location Good breakfast Nice rooms
Location superb. Dave and Monica excellent hosts, know a lot about the surrounding and life in Marekele NP. Dave as our privat ranger, gave us an excellent tour with lots of information about the animals, birds and vegetation. Monica an excellent cook! We can recomend to have your meals at Marula.....
Owners Dave and Monika are great, warm, very helpful people. And their three dogs fit right into it :-) Did a daydrive into Pilanesberg with Dave: it was fantastic. Location of the B&B is wonderfull, as is Monika's cooking. Nothing but praise!
