Nico welcomed us and we had a lovely stay. They made special arrangements for us to have an extra bed in our room for our son. We also had a lovely breakfast.

The rooms have king size beds and although they provide Wi-Fi it needs a bit more work to reach all the rooms.

They had a braai (bbq) area where we had a lovely braai one evening and Nico provided all the cutlery for us.

We arrived late at night and got greeted by the hostes who showed us our room. The power was out, so she lighted up two candles and showed us a little bit of the room and the main bulding.

After that we did not see anything to any of the hosts until 5 min before we had to check out and pay the bill, two days later. Breakfast was offered the first morning, but not the second. We got the breakfast anyway, and was charged for it, without being told in advance.

When we saw the host just before check out he did give us some good driving advise, which was very usefull. Room was also clean and tidy.

Nico was amazing, helpful, friendly and kind. The rooms were comfortable, clean and well decorated.
Nico provided us with information on where to go, where to eat, and he put extra effort into getting my boarding pass printed!
Best B and B I have ever stayed at!
Thanks Nico.

If you are looking for somewhere beautiful and affordable to get away from it all, Elephants Nest is the place to go!!

Service - was impeccable!! We were well looked after and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Nico, thank you for sharing your knowledge of the area with us and also giving us some idea's of where to have lunch & supper.
Room - was simple and clean, but had everything we needed. No TV in the room but that's fine because there is no time to watch. Rather spent time chatting or seeing ALL the beautiful places we got to see.
Location - was perfect! Central to all the sites, be prepared to drive but its definitely worth it. (Lisbon Falls, Bourke Luck Potholes, Berlin Falls, Wonderview, Gods Window & Pilgrims Rest)
Food - Breakfast was DELICIOUS thank you Nico!!
Finally a BIG thank you to both Nico & Jubilee for sharing our special moment!! The photo's that you took, captured every moment of the proposal! We look forward to coming back as a married couple!!

We were warmly welcomed on our arrival in the evening. Nico promptly suggested a few places for dinner.

The next day at breakfast, which costs R50 per person, the hosts cooked a simple but delicious breakfast and gave suggestions for the panaroma route and sights.

We were staying in the furthest room from the living room which had some issue with the range of the WiFi. We were then graciously offered the use of WiFi in the living room.

Paying a rate of R690 per night without breakfast, the service and hospitality of elephants nest was more than worth it.

We would definitely recommend a stay at the Elephants nest!
