Hi Annelize, Liezel and families,
I firstly have to apologise for writing so late after our stay at your wonderful lodge. The reason
being that our daughter has now left for London and we were really sad and tried to recover
from her having left SA.
My daughter got married on the 2 April to a young man from London. He had never been to SA
before and they went off to Mauritius on their honeymoon. We decided to show them some
of the beauty of our country and decided to bring them as well as the rest of our family to
Mpumalanga. It was impossible to find accommodation at this late stage as it was the Easter
Weekend. We were referred to your guesthouse and were told that is was new and that we
may be lucky to find accommodation here and indeed we were really lucky.
I had a look at your website and was impressed and thought that if it did turn out to be as
good as it appears on your website it would be perfect considering that the newlyweds would
be flying in from Mauritius at 7.30pm and we then drive direct to La Granja from OR Tambo
airport. It appeared to be spacious and very comfortable.
When we arrived at your guesthouse, you were extremely welcoming in spite of the later hour.
On entering the various units, we were taken aback at the spaciousness and tasteful décor.
The hospitality was absolutely overwhelming and we knew then that we had chosen well. Your
facilities are second to none. All the units are beautifully finished with the finest of linen,
towels and toiletries. The furnishing is tasteful and the units are spacious. The kitchen area is
well equipped and we did not have to use any of the utensils we had brought with us as you
has everything and then some. The braai facilities and Jacuzzi’s in units 3 and 4 are clean and
comfortable. The gardens are well manicured and maintained and pathways leading to the
various units and clubhouse clearly defined and well lit at night.
Your guesthouse was also conveniently located for us to visit the various places of interest and
the Kruger National Park.
In conclusion, we the Khan family thank you for making our Easter weekend memorable and
we look forward to visiting the area and staying at La Granja Guesthouse again soon.
