Beautiful garden / very quiet location / dinner can be taken in a separate building for around €20/p and is highly recommended.
The complex is safe, but I wouldn't want to be outside without a car in the evening.
The property is great. The hosts in particular were incredibly friendly and accommodating. A packed lunch was even packed for us because we wanted to arrive before breakfast. We had a great room, a very large bathroom and everything we needed. Really, really recommended.
There is nothing we could mention!
Highly recommended; Value for money. Have been there many times and now there is also a restaurant with very good food. Host Emma very accommodating.
You won't believe your eyes when you enter the farm. You lose yourself in a spacious, colorful garden and find yourself in a beautiful, well-kept room. Everything is perfectly organized, there is help in planning the excursions; every question is answered exhaustively - and there is even a good restaurant. It doesn't get any better than that.
Great location, quiet and peaceful location, beautiful grounds
super welcoming, delicious breakfast and nice rooms. 15 minutes drive from ADO Elephant Park. beautiful garden and cozy restaurant at the back of the garden
Good value for money accommodation in an ideal drive distance from Addo Park. Very nice garden with swimming pool. Tasty breakfast. Friendly staff.
A very nice guest house that is equipped with everything. First, the hostess is very friendly (and personable). The rooms are very spacious and the bed is very comfortable. There are a lot of staff and they really do everything for you, they even washed the car. Very sweet! Breakfast is delicious, as is dinner at The Eatery. Top quality!
They waited a long time for breakfast and dinner, but they knew about it (they recommended to place an order in advance).
The property is great, the garden is in great condition and you can linger well there. The style is very English and authentic, both in the rooms and in the common areas. The restaurant is excellent.
Unfortunately, as elsewhere in South Africa, the door had to be well closed at night. The owners pointed out to us, among other things, the bars on the door, and we took advantage of it.
I appreciated the comfort, tranquility, convenience and friendliness of the owners and staff. I really liked the perfectly manicured garden. I highly recommend this establishment. In addition, the prices for the services provided are very affordable.
Nothing.....everything was perfect.
beautiful property with garden, pool and dining area! Warm regards from Russell! Very good breakfast! Large spacious room! Good starting point to visit the ADDO Elephant National Park (about 10 km to Maingate)
very surprised on arrival by the beautiful garden and the hospitality of everyone. in the garden there is also a restaurant, a snack bar, with a delicious dinner. the breakfast is also very good. And we got a lot of advice about the area.
We had a beautiful, spacious room. It was also very clean. The guest house was beautiful, you could walk around the citrus farm. You can also relax on the sun loungers and have a drink at the restaurant. We also had a good dinner there in the evening. The staff is very pleasant and helpful.
Very good welcome. Dinner is very tasty. Large park area. Very well endowed in the region.
Shutdown of electricity and water also in the morning
gem! beautifully furnished, everyone welcomed us so warmly, food at the Diner: a dream, great breakfast! Probably the nicest accommodation we have had in South Africa!
Great hotel, nice authentic rooms, clean and well maintained. Very friendly hosts. Location for Addo NP was good. There was a small playground for children. The restaurant was delicious but had to order at lunchtime for the evening. The breakfast was also very tasty, after 3 days it became a little monotonous.
no, i would like to go back
Big spacious house, nice garden, little paradise, nice rooms
The owner is very friendly. In addition to receiving very good advice on the walk, we were given the opportunity to check out after 2 hours because my partner was not feeling well. This allowed her to take her medication and recover for the trip we did that day. We really appreciate it
The environment and how the owners manage the housing. It was a basic room but enough for one night. The farm is beautiful.
I do not recommend coming at night due to the condition of nearby roads.
food is good, host is helpful and kind
no electricity for two hours a day, pipes make a lot of noise, little cleaning
Beautiful place with lovely garden and great view. Good sized room with a lovely double bed. Very friendly staff.
Very spacious room and bathroom. Located in a beautiful garden. The main building with breakfast and common seating area is cozy and nicely decorated. The big advantage is the "diner". Small restaurant located at the end of the garden. Very good food. After a tiring day, you no longer have to return to the road to find a restaurant.
Insanely beautiful place. Beautiful garden. Welcoming people. Scotia Safari is a must. it's close. Featured.
You can’t cook on your own there, there are no shops nearby. but it's not that bad. good breakfast and restaurant. after all, you are in the middle of the jungle.
Very nice big room, friendly welcome and very good breakfast. The bathroom was large and even had a hair dryer. The whole area is very well maintained and has an attractive design.
We ate at the restaurant on site. We waited 1.5 hours for the main course and another 30 minutes for dessert. The food was very tasty, but too small and too expensive for African standards. I absolutely do not recommend!
We as a family (four people) stayed for two nights in a very spacious shared room. The property is a small oasis, absolutely quiet and idyllically located on a small body of water. The complex is in the middle of a plantation and is in very good condition, with many plants, flowers and trees. The breakfast was freshly prepared to our taste. Especially delicious were the "bran buns" and the maid willingly told us the recipe when we asked. Dinner was prepared and served by a friendly young Zimbabwean chef. The food was excellent and we all enjoyed it very much. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. Her three dogs guarded the property and were always happy to cuddle.
My second stay in this charming guest house. Very warm welcome and excellent facilities. Very good breakfast, but we regretted the temporary closure of the guesthouse's excellent little restaurant. I will definitely be back.
Very nice hotel with a well maintained garden, large room, breakfast room takes you back 100 years, you can wash your car with a hose, which is quite appropriate after a day spent in Addo Park.
The restaurant was closed because the chef was away. The nearest outdoor restaurant is a few kilometers away. Unfortunately, there was no advance notice of this. In the middle of the night, the room was suddenly brightly lit by a spotlight from outside, apparently an alarm had gone off. If we had known in advance, then in the evening we would have closed sufficiently light-tight blinds.
Very good reception, large room, large comfortable bed. big bathroom with shower and ac bath, excellent wi-fi.very good breakfast. Possibility to dine with super food.
great lodge with great people
Gerald's Gift House is a citrus plantation. Very nice owner, the whole area was in very good condition, in the morning our car was freshly washed in front of the door. There was a private restaurant (Eatery) with a small but adequate menu where you could eat well. Everything seemed very professional and familiar at the same time.
Super nice people who run this B&B, good food in the restaurant.
The rooms need some upgrading
Very friendly and polite staff, beautiful setting, large rooms, wonderful dinner with the most expensive and best chef, very close to Addo.
Very nice hosts, beautiful hotel, good breakfast (individual requests are taken into account), good location next to the Addo Elephant National Park (about 20 minutes by car to the reception in the park), delicious vegan pasta in the restaurant, cars are washed in the morning
There has been no electricity for several hours, a mosquito net would be nice
The hotel is located on a large citrus plantation. It is surrounded by a large garden with numerous trees, shrubs and flowers, through which a stream flows. The gardeners took care of the garden every day. It was also possible to walk around the plantation. We were greeted very friendly by the owner's daughter and informed of everything. Kindly she already took care of our participation in the safari. All the staff are very friendly and very helpful. Our car was washed every day without asking, which we were very happy about. Also a very good opportunity to have lunch and dinner on site. Chef Tonio from Zimbabwe is an excellent cook and at the same time takes care of his guests with love! And Gloria takes very good care of the guests during breakfast.
The equipment is getting old. The sun loungers are partially broken, the pillows need to be changed. The breakfast terrace was unfortunately not very tidy. In particular, the shower stall and the area around the sink in our room are in dire need of repair.
Magnificent guest house in a superb garden with swimming pool. Excellent breakfasts and dinners and very comfortable rooms. The owners and staff are attentive and very friendly. What a pleasure to wash the car every morning. Great stay close to Addo National Park.
Lovely apartments in a beautiful, well-kept garden. Dinner was one of the best during our 8 week stay in South Africa - highly recommended. Emma, the hostess, is a wonderful person who will help you in word and deed. Very nice room with a modern bathroom. Breakfast in the garden was wonderful and three big dogs kept the guests entertained. You can also take beautiful walks through citrus plantations. Nice clean pool.
Unfortunately the AC in the next room was a bit annoying at night.
comfortable room, large swimming pool, quiet location near Addo Elephant Park, very nice garden, delicious food, excellent breakfast, very friendly staff and helpful hosts
a fridge in the room would be great
Geralds Gift Guest House is located in a beautifully manicured garden/park, a short drive from Addo Elephant Park. CrissCross picked us up at the hotel and it worked great. The property invites you to stroll and relax and you will always discover new plants and birds. Unfortunately, there were no barn owls in the room, as, according to the owner, there were already. :-) Worth noting: you must love dogs, these three dogs are very peaceful, but still I think it's good to know. We also highly recommend the onsite restaurant. We had a wonderful dinner twice. We were as delighted with the room itself as we were with the breakfast. We would like to stay longer and hope to visit again one day. Good luck
Fabulous guest house with unique charm in the Garden of Eden. The small restaurant offers very tasty food and the lovely hostess is the icing on the cake in this paradise. Everywhere you look, an oasis of calm, blooming flowers and beautiful plants. Just great!
It was a wonderful stay
Unfortunately, there is no refrigerator and glasses in the room.
Naturalness and above all a warm welcome, so to speak, in the family! The location in Addo Elephant Park is perfect. The restaurant serves super delicious food.
Very nice, big garden, large tasteful rooms and a lovely breakfast.
If you are afraid of big dogs, you should look elsewhere 😬
beautiful room in paradise park. Very attentive attitude of Emma and staff
There is no small refrigerator in the room. Refrigeration of drinks is only possible at the reception.
Excellent rooms with attic character. The entire area is very well maintained and spacious. Very relaxed atmosphere. The breakfast is delicious and sufficient.
exceptionally good location
I can't think of anything
Very nice place in a beautiful environment The restaurant is also very good. Very comfortable bed and excellent breakfast.
It was perfect! Really great accommodation and amenities. It was very relaxing and there was a family atmosphere. Close to Addo Elephant Park. We recommend In-Home Eatery (excellent and friendly chef, very tasty food). Clear recommendations!
Due to the excellent accommodation we extended one more day (and two more couples ahead of us). This speaks for itself!
The accommodation is in the middle of the Garden of Eden and the room was very large and nicely furnished. You could really relax and there was a nice little restaurant in the same place with really good food. In addition, we received a very warm welcome. The stay was exceptionally good. :)
The garden is a paradise, incredibly beautiful, with flowers, trees and many birds. Mom can eat well in the dining room. The rooms are nice and big with roll-top baths and big showers. The staff is amazingly cordial and warm. On the day of departure, our car had just been washed. Russell was a gift to us, she made our holiday unforgettable. She was always available and at the same time imperceptible to others. We always had the feeling that the garden belongs only to us. Russell also arranged for us to book a safari to the Shotiya reservoir. If you want to see all the animals, you must book there. For us the best stay of our trip so far.
There was nothing to complain about!
First class services (beautiful setting, very spacious room) at a very reasonable price.
the garden is an absolutely sumptuous moment of paradise that will mark our trip! restaurant was very good, we ate very well (homemade chowder, beef medallion with mushroom wine sauce, chocolate cake and homemade crumble) breakfast was also very good finally friendly and kind bravo staff!
Great, cozy guesthouse with a super nice garden and nice staff. Unfortunately we only spent one night there, but wish we had stayed longer.
+ Cleanliness + Well-groomed garden and street infrastructure + Romantic breakfast + pure nature
The stay was neat. Great location to visit the Addo Elephant Park (about 20 minutes drive). In the morning we got a breakfast basket because we went early to the Addo Elephant Park.
The tap water is not drinkable, make sure you bring a large bottle of water with you (you also get a bottle from the guest house).
Gerald's Gift House is wonderful. Large room with bath and shower, large and beautiful area to stay. Everyone was very friendly to you. About 10 minutes by car to Addo National Park.
wonderful garden. Nice big room. Very good food. Very kind hosts.
the pool was not clean
Very nice huge hotel. Very friendly and dedicated owner. Very good food and nicely decorated breakfast rooms. Very lovingly furnished. Far exceeded our expectations. Very good location in relation to parks etc.
There were no flaws.
Everything: a charming place, very pastoral, the owner Sue, charming and very good advice, all her staff are very efficient and very kind, breakfasts are upstairs, and also an evening restaurant. Thanks also to his chef Ramon, who knew how to treat us and whom we sympathized with and and and ... everything else ...
Very good hotel, several buildings scattered widely, rooms are spacious with great decor. You should plan some time for walking around lemon plantations and huge seas of flowers (like a huge orchid bed). The hosts are friendly, funny and very hospitable! They gave us some tips for our day at Addo Elephant Park. Since you can eat outside, mosquito protection is recommended.
didn't have much time to reply everything was perfect
nothing was against us everything is fine
Location, grounds, rooms, staff, food!! Such a warm welcome from Russell and Ramon was also very helpful and friendly. We were very comfortable!!
Great place to relax. With a large garden and large swimming pool. There is even a nice bar where you can eat in the evening or just relax with a delicious drink. Great hosts with great attention to detail. You get a great info folder with great recommendations.
There is nothing!
Good location super friendly
Extraordinarily beautiful accommodation with a very beautiful garden. The restaurant was good but there was only one option - not suitable for vegetarians. Very friendly staff, especially in the dining room - very nice hostess.
Gorgeous gardens and great food in a beautiful setting.
- Lovely garden - plant size - very good breakfast - Very nice hosts - very good food and very good service in the dining room
- Bee nest in front of the room (Heron)
Great guest house with a small pool. Beautifully manicured and lovingly designed garden and furniture. Led by a very friendly and helpful hostess. Delicious breakfast with fresh fruits and egg dishes.
Beautiful garden Make sure you have enough time to enjoy the property Unique atmosphere in the former stables Good restaurant in the house Good staff Family The car was even washed :)
Some insects - though not dangerous ;) Secluded - you must stay put. But she is beautiful.
Fantastically landscaped garden. Very tasty 3 course menu. warm welcome
What was especially nice and pleasant is that the territory has "its own" restaurant / bar. Managed by Ramon who prepares a 3 course menu (you can see the menu at the guest house). And it is very tasty and recommended if you come after a long trip. Then you won't have to go further into Addo - other than the park, which really isn't worth it. Beautiful house, everything is very clean and tidy. Great breakfast and great welcome.
Beautiful garden. Dinner at the house was excellent. The hostess was very kind.
WiFi is slow.
Very friendly host, the room was very nicely decorated, dinner was excellent thanks to the house cook (Ramon?)
friendly welcome great dinner nice room good breakfast
