Me and my friend really enjoyed staying at Opikopi will definitely use the facility again. Staff was friendly and the food was great. The room was clean and the people that picked us up from the airport was also so friendly and efficient. Thanks so much

I enjoyed every moment. This guesthouse will see us again. For sure. Very homely and no interference from the personnel which I liked, because I enjoy my privacy. Bed was comfortable and the breakfast even had CHEESE!

The location is excellent, in a green and quiet area close to major shopping facilities and highways. The interior decoration is full of personality and nicely varied - all rooms seem to be a bit different. The staff was just marvellous; very kind, forthcoming and efficient. The small restaurant adds important extra value as you don't need to go out...

I stay less than 1 km from Opikopi and use this little peace of Heaven often. When I just need a break from day to day stresses or need accommodation for family; friends or colleagues - Opikopi will always be my first choice. Nothing beats the food and detail no matter how small on offer!

Rooms and meals were superb!! Service was outstanding and staff excellent. would recommend staying there to all. Bedding luxurious and only complaint I can think of would be lack of parking space, although staff offered to assist with removing vehicles.

Opikopi was all we expected from the typical African guest house. Helen was very welcoming along with the staff. Meals were terrific as well as the service. We were traveling with friends, 14 of us altogether and all of them had never experienced African hospitality before and all were extremely happy with Opikopi. Rooms were lovely and generous in size...

Luxury accommodation at affordable rates. Sparkling clean linen, soft towels, spa shower, all the little extras(like a proper, powerful hair dyer) that makes your stay special. Lovely staff, especially Bongani! Food that exceeded all my expectations. Situated in safe security area with control access.
