This is a lovely hotel on the edge of the Kalahari. Quirky and comfortable - excellent for a stopover on the way to or from the Kagalagadi Transfrontier Park. Staff are friendly and helpful and the food on offer is more than acceptable.

Not our first trip to this hotel and it never disappointing. Rooms are comfortable and clean, the restaurant food is superb and overall experience very good. The Hotel features some interesting art work all around and has a nice pool to cool off. There is also a nice sand dune close by that you can drive or clime onto for sun downers. The place to stay in van Zylsrus.

The town before Vanzylsrus is called Hotazel. It's a clue. And once you leave Hotazel, you face a long, hot, dusty drive through the desert, not knowing what to expect in Vanzylsrus but, realistically, you know it won't be great. Even when you pull up outside the hotel, you think it all looks a bit ordinary. And sandy. And HOT. But inside, the little hotel is an oasis of warm people, chilled drinks, beautifully decorated rooms, and great food. Petro, the owner, has clearly taken a very personal and hands-on pride in what she does. The decorations are eclectic, and each unique piece seems to have a story. And she's very visible in the day-to-day running of the hotel. The rooms are comfortable, air-conditioned, and spotless. We slept like logs. And next morning, to allow us an early departure, the kitchen staff prepared breakfast packs for us to eat on the road. We spent one night there as a stop-over on the way to the Kgalagadi. But next time, we'll plan to spend longer in this little gem of a hotel.

On arrival the man who helped us checkin was very friendly and informative. The rooms were very neat, clean and for the most part comfortable. We had 2 rooms - one was a family room with a bunk bed that wasn’t steady so we had to put tissues under the legs to stabilize it, the mattresses on the bunk beds were so thin you slept right through. The bar at the hotel is the local drinking spot and was very noisy until late - as well as the music coming from the local settlement. The walls of the rooms are so thin that it felt as if the music was right in your room. On a positive the food was very nice and the people were very friendly.

What an amazing place in the middle of nowhere! The service was exceptional and the food was amazing. I was pleasantly surprised by the comfortable, clean, neat and tidy rooms. The biscuits and rusks in the rooms are a great ad on and this just makes the weary traveler feel even more welcome. The fountains in the garden also makes one think of an oasis in the desert. I cannot wait to go back.
