How does it work?

  1. Participating establishments pay 10% of every booking they receive into the free accommodation fund.
  2. This fund is used to pay for free accommodation for guests at any participating establishment.
  3. On average, 1 in 10 guests booking at participating establishments should receive a free booking. All bookings between R1 and R100,000 are eligible and have an equal chance. (Due to people not claiming their free stay, your chances are actually 1 in 7)

Excited and Thankful. I really appreciate this awesome surprise. I would like to say that Willow Tree Guest House is the place to stay - they are friendly, welcoming and truly accommodating. I enjoyed the time I stayed there - if I have to do business in Klerksdorp again I will be staying there again.
