Everything was perfect!
Accomodation, breakfast, the whole setting provides fro rest and relaxation after a long travel.
Quality of WiFi goed improve
The fact that we requested a bath if possible and we did get a room with a bath. The manager was charming , helpful and very informative in regards to the facilities and places to eat. The breakfast is excellent and the setting is wonderful, green lawns and gardens well maintained. We would have loved to stay longer, but we will certainly return.
Owners Dave and Sam are the most welcoming people! The place is amazing, very nice to relax after the Kruger park. Very helpful and passionate owners! Definitely recommended for everyone!
There isn't a thing not to like at this place!
Absolutely fantastic owner (Dave), who gave us many good advices. Large room with all necessary facilities. Nice surroundings with garden, pool and many bird species. Tasty breakfast. Secure parking. Close to Phalaborwa Gate of Kruger National Park.
Wi-fi was not very reliable, it disappeared from time to time.
Ideally situated 5 minutes from the Phlaraborwa gate in a beautiful garden with a swimming pool. The owners are welcoming, friendly and very helpful offering advice on what to do in the area and the cheapest way of doing it! They also have a lovely little friendly dog and always ask guests if they are happy for the dog to wander in the garden before allowing it to. Our room was large, clean and comfortable, with excellent beds and a superb shower. It had a little private patio outside where you could sit to enjoy the last rays of the sun. Breakfast was good and there are very good restaurants nearby, in particular the Hat and Creek. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and plan to return if we visit the area again.
Wi-Fi was quite weak in the garden area.
value for money staff near the gate! great good wifi amazing breakfast
there was a power failure but it was for all the district so not the fault of the hotel
After arrival the first person to greet us was Dave. With a cheerful smile and willingness to make us feel comfortable we were checked quickly. Offers to help with our plans in the area were offered without being pushy, and the advice was great!. Additionally, the map and directions to the services and facilities locally were a great help to us. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The gardens were peaceful and we enjoyed sundowners in comfort and quiet. The breakfast was super, even catering to our special requests. This was an excellent way to stop over before Kruger, we were fresh going in and enjoyed the whole trip in part because of the great start at Sunbird Lodge. Thank you Dave for welcoming us to Phalaborwa and for the great experience.
I did not like the fact that i had booked in for one night. Next time we will stay longer.
Friendly welcome back and convenient location
Owner going the extra mile for us.
Friendly service, excellent accommodation
An awesome, friendly and sincere welcome. The privacy factor of your units is also a plus! We'll be back! Thank you very much for a lovely stay!
Firm comfortable bed.
Friendly staff, good location, recommendation and directions to restaurants in the area, proximity to Phalaborwa gate of Kruger Park.
Really enjoyed our stay at the Sunbird Lodge and especially the breakfast in the morning. Very nice grounds and pool and comfortable spacious room.
Staff were increfibly hospitable. We felt very welcomed.
Accommodation was spacious and clean, but units did not feel very private if sitting outside.
My host was professional and always helpful. He made our stay pleasant. he is very jolly and always smilling
the lodge is very close to Phalaborwa gate. Room was clean and Dave (the owner) was very kindly. He gave us many tips about Kruger park and Blyde River canyon. We kindly suggest you this lodge.
It needs more indications how to reach it during the nightly time. Than it becomes easy.
The owners were so welcoming and friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our holiday and would recommend the Sunbird to anyone visiting South Africa.
The garden, the pool, the breakfast, the bed, the staff...everything
Lovely people, beautiful place for staying very close to gate to Kruger's park
Excellent facilities ans hospitality
Nothing really, maybe cheaper tariff for sa visitors
No undercover parking.
Very nice place with huge garden, where you can hear the birds singing all around you. The owner helped us a lot with booking our activities, though the pool was so nice we could gladly stay in all day :)
Nothing that we really didn't like, but we'd appreciate more choice for breakfast (eg. cold meat, cheese, bakery etc)
