Having travelled across South Africa we have never come across a more hospitable guesthouse. The staff at mongoose guesthouse was friendly and helpful at all times. The rooms are truly beautiful and full of personal touches that really makes one feel at home. The guesthouse is located within walking distance from the Albatros restaurant and boasts an incredible view of...

My last visit was two years ago, the service and attention given to ensuring the stay is enjoyable is one of the Mongooses trademarks. Accommodation is more than comfortable and the breakfasts are different each day ensuring good variety. This is definitely the place to stay when visiting the area. Being on the golf course adds to the perfect position....

My wife and I had a wonderful weekend with our little baby and the friendly management went out of their way to make it as comfortable as possible for us. We could just drink in the beautiful surroundings and the picturesque sunsets through the Camel thorn trees. The rooms are very stylish and luxurious and the beds are top quality....

The rooms and bathrooms are luxurious and spacious. Lovely views and pretty setting. Breakfast was nice with warm service. Too many issues to give this more stars: wifi is spotty; problem with electric outlets so couldn't wash and dry hair, was identified at 0630 as circuit having flipped, but was not turned back on until late afternoon--and nothing done to...

Dear Rene Thanks for your review. I'm just disappointed that you mention issues that was addressed immediately when reported eg. "circuit having flipped". The rest of your statements is unfortunately just not true - we have a person on site from 5 am to 8 pm every day, and my mobile-number is in the room-file and at the back of...

A friend and I stayed here for 4 nights while playing golf at Sishen. The rooms were very good, well equipped and clean. The aircon worked well, which is just as well as it was 45c while we were there. We received a breakfast voucher for Mugg&Bean (which we used at Albatross restaurant later in the day) as they don't...

This was a real 5 star experience!! Beautiful spacious rooms, lovely location and excellent service. Filter coffee in the room was a nice touch. Golf Club and restaurant only a short stroll across the golf course.

Thank you for your kind comments. We prefer that our service offering is rated 5 Star by our patrons on a continuous basis... Rather than putting it up on a wall based on a one-time rating! Blessings. Carlene

We stopped over on our way back from the Fish River Hike and it is beautiful. Service was fantastic and the rooms exquisite with all the finishing touches expected for a luxury guesthouse. We also received a breakfast voucher for Mugg&Bean as they don't serve breakfast on weekends. We will happily be back.
