Clean, quiet and spacious rooms. Great breakfast served on daily basis. WiFi not so reliable especially when having to remotely access a work server.

Talked to some lady over the phone, and she was so cold and rude. There is appearently no free Wi-Fi. You need to pay for it. The room only had 2 towels the basin was dirty. The shower water splashing all over. The shower cap needs to be fixed. Never ever have I seen such horrible place. Will never stay there again ......

Booked for 2 people for 2 nights. One night on the way as a stop over from Mpumalanga to Kliprand and one night return. On the return guest house was locked up and non of the phone nr that we phoned were answered. We send sms and WhatsApp to the cell nr. Still no reply or answer. After 800km no bed or shower available to rest out for the next 800km. 2 and a half hours after arrival they eventually contacted and gave access to the rooms. I WILL NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE AS IT IS UN PROFESSIONAL

I phoned to make a booking and they had two rooms available. When the lady took our names down, she reliazed the person Im traveling with is a black man. Suddently she put me on hold. When she came back, there was now just one room available. So To test it, I said it is fine I can get space at a other guest for myself and he can stay with them. So she said she did heard me. As I busy repeating myself, she interupted me and she said its fine then they can accommadate me and he can stay at a other place.So I got the picture they dont want a black man staying there.Im sorry but if you want to own a guest house, you cant be racist, I had to explain to him what happen, becuase he heard the whole conversation as I was using my car kit.Unexceptable

review by Kace Chimedza

"Rheotessa Guesthouse"

Used as an overnight sleep-over only. I was impressed by the size of both the guesthouse and the town of Kathu. There is a handy shopping centre close to the accommodation. The reception was friendly, despite our late arrival. The room was comfortable and clean.
