Stayed in an apartment. Place was filthy. Torn curtain in bathroom. Stains on ceilings and walls. Bedding had burn marks. When entering apartment there was a bad smell in the room. Overall a very bad stay.

the self catering units are ideal for long-term stay so that one may really appreciate the surrounding nature, especially the mornings and evenings

We had a most enjoyable 3 day stay. Peaceful, guiet and beautiful setting. Dieneke made us feel most welcome and the directions were spot on. Will definitely return and recommend Donnybrook.

We had a lovely stay at Donnybrook Guesthouse. We went to Joburg for the Sanesa Equestrian Competition and they have stables and paddocks so we had my daughters horse there as well. She loved opening the door and seeing her horse right there in the mornings.
