"We booked in at the Riverbend Guest House in the North West - Groot Marico from the 27th to the 30th December 2016 (3 nights) with our two kids.Michelle, the owner, was quite friendly and so was the farm manager staying next to the house we were occupying.Unfortunately, the place was infested with too many flies and ants all over. We could not even enjoy a relaxing braai as my husband was busy chasing and killing flies all the time. Kids lost their appetite and wanted to leave after spending one night there.The pool did not look to pleasing either.Then when we decided to leave on Friday morning a tractor rolled onto my Hyundai I20 bashing the left fender and bumper leaving me with a cost to repair of R4000. The farm manager helped to tie the fender with wire so we could travel on the road.Unhappy due to bad experiences."

"Great quiet getaway for the whole family. The farmhouse was clean and well kept, although I think some of the double beds could be replaced. Staff was great Pity there is no fireplace."
