We had a very relaxing four days at Hoopoe. It was a homely atmosphere with very friendly helpful staff. The room we stayed in had a large comfortable bed and a bathroom with a spa bath and shower. Hoopoe was in easy reach of the Lion Park, Sterfontein Caves and the Cradle of Humankind, a world heritage site.

Very happy with my stay. Everyone was very friendly and made me feel at home.

We had a decent stay and the rooms and the guest house itself was clean and very nice. We did however feel that the rooms could be a bit more sound proof as we could hear every word and move of the other people staying in the guest house. It was a nice experience overall.
