          I like the nature of the place, and the sounds of birds. They have to put swimming pool in premises. And use winter sheets and blankets, not summer sheets.

          i opted for other guest house after realising the poor standard. I preferred to loose my deposit than settling for less

          Modimolle Funky Stay was such a disappointment. The water in the shower is so bad you  have to move around just to get wet and the bed lamps doesn't even work. The one bed wasn't straight which made you feel like you are going to roll off the bed.The place is over priced for what you get.We will never stay over at Modimolle Funky Stay again.

          We had a pleasant stay at Modimollle .They really went out of their way to accommodate us. Very peaceful and we went to sleep with the crooking of frogs in the pond outside our rooms. The people are very friendly.

          It was nice and clean. Good for an overnight stay. No view from your bed.
