The service was just excellent, the staff were so welcoming to us as guests. I got value for my money and will definitely recommend it to anyone I speak to. I wish every guest house was on point as this one. Big thumbs up. Keep up the good service delivery.

The Tree of Idleness was my home away from home, in a tranquil setting, I relaxed into the natural feel of the venue without a worry in the world - all possible thanks to the helpful owner and both quintessential surrounds and amenities. A special thanks, considering my specific requests which were handled flawlessly.

Nothing like advertised in their brochure - it's a ramshackle dump, old, rundown, dirty & smells of old furniture & incense everywhere. The staff have no idea of guest relations - a helper/cleaner was scouring her heels right at the porch entrance to the rooms - eeeuuuww!!! Charging R580 per couple per night & then I was given the 'early... More

The Tree of Idleness gave me back my Soul. I escaped to this little piece of Heaven here during the Break-up of my Marriage. I found Peace, Solace, Whispering Trees, Birdsong and Care in this Green Paradise at extremely Low Rates. The Owner, a charming loving Hostess, stayed out of my face giving me the peace of feeling That I... More

The Tree of Idleness Guest House is an amazing guesthouse in Henley on Klip. I was entranced by the abundant rich garden setting - wild and tame at the same time as well as the luxury of the en-suite chalets. The one we stayed in had an incredible fire place and private garden where I managed to sun tan nude.... More
