Guest Comments

We were 4 adults staying overnight en route to The Kruger. We were warmly greeted by Holger and immediately made to feel at home. Our 3 course dinner was excellent. The following morning, over a delicious breakfast, we loved the view from Acra Retreat and we were attended to by Holger's kind mother. We experienced a very warm, friendly and comfortable stay and we thank Acra Retreat for looking after us all so well. We will definitely return when driving through the area again.
- Carol Coxwell

It was just great to stay in this wonderful bed and breakfast. On the deck we could enjoy the sun and we had some very nice wines from the bar. The owner gave us a late checkout, because we had a late flight home to Europe. The food was good and the beds incredibly clean. Yes, we would come here again as a stop right in the middle from Kruger to Joburg.
- Sjoerd Jaasma

The food was amazing as was the hospitality.
- Clarissa Strydom

The very nice family gave us a very warm welcome on the first day of our trip to South Africa! Great!
- Herbert Stein

Very enjoyable stay. Everthing was perfect. Very nice view!
