My family and I have stayed here a number of times. The setting is absolutely gorgeous! The rooms are nicely decorated and are clean. The dinner and breakfasts served are great. Perfect place to stop over when traveling to the Kruger and in close proximity to beautiful attractions.

We stayed here for one night last week. Our room (8) was pleasant with a 4 poster bed with mosquito nets and plugs provided. The nougat and sherry were a very nice touch. We had a nice terrace to sit out on but were somewhat concerned about the wasps nesting in the bamboo blinds! We did feel that the room/bathroom...

This was my first ever Guest House in South Africa while I was in between Game Lodges and I found it to be quite lovely and would definitely stay here again if I need a place in the Hoedspruit area. For the money, I feel it is an exceptional value. The staff is wonderful and OMG, the Chef is amazing!...

The setting for this hotel was beautiful and peaceful and the food outstanding BUT what happened to our room? It was at the end of a line of cabins and on walking in we thought we have stumbled into the staff accommodation. The room had not been updated for many years and the lavatory had an old enamel basin and...

Do not use the map pin on Google Maps to find this hotel as it is NOT by Hoedspruit aerodrome. It is just off the R531 - we were in good company, apparently, in not finding it! Each room is a chalet set in well-kept gardens with a huge variety of plants, orchids, grasses, all leading down to a pond...

Thank you for the lovely review and for taking the time to go into detail about the facilities. I apologise about the Google Map pin being in the wrong location, the pin was placed by an Tour Agent.

Zuleika is what you would imagine a guest house in South Africa to be. The grounds are beautiful and the view of the mountains are stunning. The staff was very professional and the food was absolutely delicious. The room we stayed in (#5) was very nice. This is a lovely 4 star property.

We stayed at Zuleika on our way from Blyde to the Kruger Park. What a lovely experience. Quirky rooms and garden. Our room, though small, had everything we needed. Wonderfully clean and filled with all sorts of amenities. Much to our surprise, we were the only guests for dinner. But quietly we enjoyed the breathtaking view, surroundings and absolutely delicious...

What a gem this place proved to be with excellent room facilities and very good food. The garden is attractive with a large pond and stunning views across to mountains in the distance. We stayed here for 2 nights and found it to be very comfortable indeed. I would highly recommend this place for a stop over.

We stayed here our first night in country for two reasons: 1) After multiple international flights, going to a game preserve right away would be lost on us, in our jet lagged state. 2) We wanted to check out the Canyon. (Okay, and 3, it was recommended as a good place to catch our breath.) So, yes: Good first night...
