Reviews for Purple Gecko Guesthouse
A great choice if you're in need of accommodation in Lydenburg. Lovely, spacious rooms. Well-equipped and clean.Breakfast good, and served with a smile. Dstv and wifi are a plus as well.
Very nice and comfortable
Neat place. Friendly staff. Breakfast was not a good expierance. Not value for money. Winter month whate about electric blanket. Towles very hard and thin.
Excellent service, accommodations and setting
I highly recommend Purple Gecko guest house as the place to stay when you visit Lydenburg. 5 Stars all the way. :)
Awesome People, Great Place, Divine Food and Accommodation
Beautiful surroundings. Comfortable rooms. Unfortunately the spa bath in our room was out of order. Service in general was excellent and on point.
Friendly people and good value
never been there stay across the place looks quite nd not too mutch traffic there
Accomodation is 5/5. They charge R200 for dinner. Becaise you are the only guest for dinner the ask whether they can give you a voucher to go and eat at another restuarant...The value of the voucher? R150.
My family and I had the pleasure of staying at the Purple Gecko. What beautiful rooms, spacious, luxurious and tastefully decorated 5 star treatment. More impressive was the honesty, much like the honesty tastefully stocked, we encountered. I got a call a couple of hours later to let me know that one of the guests had left a chain behind. Thank you Purple Gecko, you have many feathers in my cap in fact my have been put down as a preferred guesthouse for our future business trips.
"Nice place for stayover en route to Kruger"
Loved the lovely large and clean room. Nicely decorated. Bathroom was huge too! Room was a bit dark though, with only one small window.
I once stayed at purple gecko in 2010 , it was a lovely visit filled with welcoming and warmth. I was sadly disappointed on my arrival to be informed that instead of the 3 nights I had booked for they can only accommodate me for 2 , I felt put out since I had made the booking 2 weeks earlier and no one called me to inform me otherwise. Even when informing me of this , they showed no remorse whatsoever and just gave me an ultimatum ad to ," this is entirely up to you whether you take it or find yourself accommodation elsewhere. " I was sadly disappointed especially since I had already paid them an amount of R3550 remaining amount of R350 on arrival. When I asked about the refund I was informed that it will take up to 48hrs before I get it . Sadly enough the following morning I was woken up by a call that I must come pay them an additional amount since we were 4 instead of 2 ppl . I asked them of the full amount for our stay , I was informed that I just need to come and pay the R800 . I then called safari (who made my booking) they clarified the matter with the establishment and they advised them to refund me R950 and that I didn't owe them any additional amount. It's been 6 days now since I stayed there and I still haven't received my money back . Totally unsatisfied with the place and am never staying there again.
