Reviews for Siloam Village
Amazing rustic feel , very peaceful and amazing friendly staff . Thank you Caroline !
Was ok to sleap over. Just no sign board on the road to the village and got lost.
Nice theme park environment with back packer set up.Lots of activities for kids and 2 swimming pool
Siloam Villiage is the perfect stop-over. The fishermen's cabin is perfect for the budget conscious solo traveler. The cabin has 2 bunk beds, fridge, microwave oven and cutlery. The place is kept clean and tidy. Thanks for an awesome stop over.
What a stunning place, needed a place to sleep over from Cape Town on the way to Pretoria and this was so much more than worth it. Friendly people and very accomodating. They will see us again.
Picturesque setting and friendly staff make for a very pleasant stay. Also, if you consider affordability, The Siloam Village is most economical.If you're visiting during Dec...Feb (Southern African summer) sleep under a damp towel...
Ons het 'n kans gevat om ons roete te 'verlaat' om hier oor te slaap. Die huidige gasvryheid het die tekortkominge oorskadu. Ek glo teen Desember sal dit fantasties wees om daar oor te bly. Ons gaan beslis weer ons roete 'verlaat' om daar oor te slaap.
"Nice pit stop"
Enjoyed my stay, venue still in construction and will be a nice overstay in it's price class once finished. Friendly and helpful owner and staff. Good travel routes in the area and nature reserve a must to visit.
