Pat and Reg have made our first holiday with our 3months old baby very comfortable. Her team cleaned the room around our baby's nap time and always put the air-con on before we returned from a day of exploring. When Pat learnt how rubbish the car seat we got with the car hire, she lent us a better one and...

I stayed at Ipe Tombe for two days due to business. They are situated in a safe security area, which has a farm feel to it. The hosts are welcoming and friendly. I only had breakfast there but their meals sound good. Rooms are tidy and clean as well as comfortable. The only small niggle was the wifi, which although...

Dear Karl Many thanks for your kind words. We are so sorry that our wifi was problematic. We have been aware of this for a while and to this end signed an agreement with a service provider for optic fiber which would really speed things up.

I regularly visit Ipe Tombe while travelling for business. I see it as a Home away from Home. Pat and her team are extremely friendly and welcoming. The three course dinners are a big hit for me with lovely home cooked food.

Hi Werner - thank you so much for your kind words. My only problem regarding your review is I now have Reg strutting around with delusions of adequacy regarding his omelettes .. hehehe!

It was my first time in South Africa but staying at Ipe Tombe didn't allow me to feel estranged. The patrons Pat and Reg made it cosy and homely. The rooms and services are excellent. Good value for money.
