                          We had an overnight stop at the Old Coach Road Guest house. The hosts were friendly and helpful and our room was well appointed. Although there wasn't a fridge in the room, our hosts were happy to accommodate various travelling food items in their big fridge. As the establishment is some distance from the centre of town, we had asked for dinner. This was tasty, but we felt a bit pricey for a roast with vegetables and dessert.

                          We loved the very neat and spacious accommodation . Apart from the occasional passing train (GREAT) very quite place in the bush and still close to Barberton town and convenient for traveling on to the Kruger Park.We will stay there again when in he Barberton area. Excellent service from Adriaan and Lilli and excellent home cooking by Lilli. Five stars all round from us.

                          Warm friendly welcome from the owners. Tranquil setting. Only drawback was trying to find restaurant for dinner on Sunday evening. Should have taken up offer from owners to provide dinner. Otherwise a very enjoyable stay.
