I booked the whole place for my guest on the 2013-12-13 till 15 as i was getting married in Mp.The place was very clean and beautiful at the same time, the staff were very friendly and would most definitely recommend it to any1, Oh and the prices are very reasonable as well.

"Beautiful" is relative. We booked in after looking on the internet and the photos looked good. Don't be fooled. We were told before booking that the new rooms "which were lovely" would be available so we paid our deposit. The "new rooms" are in a block that would not have looked out of place in 1960's Russia. There's no pathway to the block so you have to walk over the grass (which was muddy) dragging your own suitcase. We walked up a tiled stairway to be greeted with the pungent smell of disinfectant and right to the end of the passage. The list is actually endless, but there was a huge king size bed. That was the only bit of good news. One bedside table, which looked like it was a kitchen unit as it was too high, one lamp and a hole in the headboard for the plug. You couldn't get in or out of the other side of the bed as it was 6 inches away from the wall. The toilet didn't flush and when it did it didn't stop, the toilet seat fell off, the hot and cold water taps were mixed up and loose, the shower rose was blocked, the doors needed a good oiling and the sliding doors onto the balcony were coming away from the walls. Also the balcony railing was very loose.There was no-one else staying the place but they managed to put a family right next door to us and the walls are so thin we could hear EVERYTHING that went on in their room. Including their toilet habits. Breakfast is in the conference room and there are huge plug sockets sticking out all over the floor and huge round tables set with the basics. No side plates no serviettes no condiments. Just a knife and fork. The food had sat in warmers so it was steamed and soggy and no staff around so I had to keep going to the kichen. The pool looked like it needed overhauling and the so called security fence looked like it hadn't worked in a long time. We had booked in for two possibly three nights but we didn't even finish breakfast. I did say to my husband that it was like staying in an army barracks. He said that the barracks were better. I have to wonder how they managed to get 4 stars!!!!! One would be REALLY pushing it.

Room Tip: Just don't do it.......

Reception was great, the staff of Gannet PLace are friendly and very helpfull. We booked room number 5 (ultra luxury) honey moon suite. The rooms is spacious and the management went out of their way to make it special for me and my husband. They decorated the room with candles and flowers with Champagne and chocolates. We stayed for 4 nights and it was wonderful. We had private Game tours to the Kruger and the Panorama Route.

We stayed in this guesthouse for 3 nights . We looked at the pictures on their internet-site and it appeard to be 5star ??? We made a reservation in a luxury room , but when we booked in we were provided with a room as in a formule 1 hotel . The room was so small that only a double bed could fit in it. The room also smelld awfull !!!! When we asked to be upgraded to a apperently a so called " Superior " room " the room was a bit bigger - two chairs could fit into this so-called " superior room " . The pool was not cleaned for a VERY long time - and the water smelled awfull !! We hat to pay R3000 xtra for the 3 nights in a superior room . In total it costed us R5000 for 3nights . We asked the lady about the beautiful pictures of the rooms as on the internet site , upon which she indicated " that must be a very old internet site of gannet place " ??? The rating of this guesthouse = 4 star ? Please review the rating - I don't think it is worthy for 2 stars . PLEASE DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY TO STAY IN THIS AWFUL PIGSTY !!!!!
