This guest house is very amazing, with a classic look and feel (atmosphere), the friendly staff make it even more worthwhile, I consider Emalahleni Castle my go to place if I'm around Middleburg. It's quite affordable especially if you are a student, a promoter or simply a traveller looking for a great place to sleep at. I rate it 5-star due to the following (friendly staff, simplistic yet great breakfast served to us "my friends and I", the intimate garden set up including pool located outside and lastly the cleanliness of the rooms including extra blankets placed in every room) oh did I mention the cool art images found on their walls? (Beautiful)

A bitold fashioned and staff were loud for some reason, no peace and quiet you would expect from a 3 star rated place. Its affordable but would pay a bit more for a different place

"Good experience"

Great breakfast, comfy beds. Perfect for an overnight stay!

review by Gerda Fouche, South Africa

"Great place"

We stayed at the Castle one night on our way to Kruger. The rooms were comfortable and the breakfast was great. The staff were very friendly. My in-laws also stayed and were offered, what I call, the "King's Suite". It was amazing! Our room was much smaller, but the bed was comfy.
