Gerald's Gift Guest House
Ranked #2 of 23 Addo B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 March 2012

We spent one night here before going into Addo. Hostess Sue was very welcoming and helpful. The room was comfortable and well-appointed and our breakfast delicious. The grounds are magnificent and if you are a dog-lover then Jack is an added bonus. We enjoyed the guest lounge where we were able to enjoy our own bottle of wine but there is also a well stocked honesty bar. We would definitely return if we were in the area again.

My wife and I had an absolutely great time and can't wait to go back. It's just a beautiful place and run by wonderful people. Sue and Hilda gave us great and objective advice on what to see and do in Addo and we are still talking about our trip. If you are going to Addo, this is the place to stay.

Our hostess went the extra mile in order to make our stay so special and memorable .Nothing was too much for Sue to arrange for us .Geralds Gift is set in a magnificent manicured garden overlooking a river with sweeping views of the fields and Zuuberg mountains in the distance .We relaxed in the peaceful setting with pool loungers at the pool. Delicious full English breakfast was served in the diningroom.I would highly recommend Geralds Gift to other travellers going to Addo It is 4star in every way

i didn't want to go home. Stayed in Addo 3 days for game drives and elephant rides. Gerald's Gift is not a gift shop but a beautiful BB near Addo on a working farm run by a wonderful hostess with a magical green thumb . When you have breakfast outside on the veranda or taking a siesta between game drives, viewing the perfect lawns and gardens watching the gardeners at work and the friendly enormous great dane wandering the grounds, it is easy to imagine yourself a wealthy traveler from a different era. The best part is that prices are very reasonable by American standards.
