Ipe Tombe Guest Lodge

Guest Feedback

Name = “Home from home” Stayed at this Facility whilst on a Business trip. Pat is fantastic. Home from Home is the only way to describe it. Fantastic Home tasting Meals. Great Rooms well fitted. The amount of investment deserves return. I will be staying there again in March and May. • Stayed February 2015, travelled on business Name = Kobus Van Wyk from Cape Town “Vegans welcome” I've been pleasantly surprised by Ipe Tombe Guest Lodge. The surroundings are beautiful and peaceful, the rooms well appointed, but what really impressed me most was the wonderful vegan meals prepared by Pat. Very few guest lodges or hotels get it right for vegans, but here was an exception. A three course vegan dinner (one of the best I've had outside of my home) was prepared to perfection; and the breakfast is totally vegan friendly. I would certainly recommend this establishment ... this is my new home when on business in Gauteng. • Stayed December 2014, travelled on business. Name =  Welcome home accommodation I regularly stay at Ipe Tombe and it is always good. Breakfast excellent and if you book dinner you won’t be disappointed. Pat makes you feel at home. Rooms are good size and provide all the facilities with some rooms having own patio overlooking the garden. Free Wifi is available as the cell phone reception is not that great. Name = Anthony & Helen Harvey My wife and I travelled to Johannesburg for the wedding of my sister. On our arrival we were warmly greeted by Reg. We were shown to our room by a friendly lady on staff. The room was immaculately furnished and had an exceptional homely feel to it. We truly could not have asked for more, including the mini bar which was very reasonably priced. The breakfast menu was just as outstanding. To crown our stay at Ipe Tombe Guest Lodge, it was apparent that both Pat and Reg have a strong affection for their dogs, making us long for home and our 2 little pups. Looking for a place to stay in Midrand, Gauteng? Ipe Tombe guest Lodge is your only choice. Friendly staff and management. • Stayed October 2014, travelled as a couple Rated:5/5 Rooms 5/5 Cleanliness 5/5 Service Name = “Home Away from Home” Ipe Tombe is much more than a Lodge or a Hotel. It is home. We stayed there before and after our long Safari, and will carry with us forever the sweetest memories of the place and hosts. Pat and Reg are a very hard working and intelligent people. It was a pleasure to spend time with them. Pat does all the cooking, and I missed her food every day while away on the Safari! Breakfast is incredible ! The ladies she has working for her are extremely polite and discreet, always ready to help! The rooms are super clean, comfortable and quiet. The social area is extremely well decorated, with a pool table and two big fridges full of beer !! Unfortunately we could not swim, but we had pleasant walks around the garden with its many blooming flowers! I am sure Pat & Reg will make your stay hassle free and unforgettable ! The area is safe, inside a condominium, and you don't feel you are in a big city at all. It was the perfect place for us to relax after a long flight, and after a long time in the bush. I fully recommend you stay there. Actually, we can’t wait to go back !! Room Tip: We liked both rooms we stayed in, but the one with a balcony was very charming.. Stayed September 2014, travelled as a couple. Name = Rudolph Germishuys What a great facility, must be rates 5 stars not 4. Great rooms. Great food will definitely not stay at another place. Name: Andre G Absolutely excellent service from this lovely guest house in Midrand. Perfect for business trips in the area. Easily accessible from the N1. You really feel at home and welcomed by Pat and Bob, especially if you are travelling for business purposes. The food is prepared to such an exemplary level that I would grade this guest house as having more than 4 stars and it has me returning time and time again. Rooms are super clean and very spacious. Overall I am absolutely pleased with the service I receive and will definitely recommend this guest house to friends, family and colleagues. Stayed September 2013, travelled on business. Name:  Dave C “First business trip to Joburg” Could not have wished for a more welcoming comfortable environment after a long journey. The Ipe Tombe is the best Guest house I have ever stayed in. Pat and Bob the proprietors make you feel at home with their hospitality, great food and lovely surroundings. I'll be back. Dave C – April 2013 UK Name:  Liam from the UK “Amazing place to stay!” Reviewed April 24, 2013 This is my second stay in as many years at the lovely Ipe Tombe guesthouse, and I can honestly say that this is the first ever place in the world I have been which I honestly consider a home away from home. Pat, Bob and their team go to extraordinary measures to make you feel welcome and the home cooked food is to die for! There is absolutely no point in going out to a restaurant for dinner. Ipe Tombe also features the best and fully stocked honesty bar in the southern hemisphere. For the second year in a row I have been part of the team of 10 staying here for a convention (see review "Charles M") and I am very much looking forward to come back again next year.

Name = Suzanne M I travel to Johannesburg at least once a month on business and for the first couple of months I tried a different guest house every month in the Midrand area, without really feeling "at home". Then I found Ipe Tombe guest Lodge and have been staying there ever since. Pat and Reg are the best hosts, friendly and hospitable whilst still professional. I have the home cooked, 3 course dinner whenever I am there and enjoy the wonderful breakfast selection as well. The genuine care and concern that I experienced from Reg and Pat I have not seen anywhere else in a very long time. I will continue to stay at Ipe Tombe at every opportunity I get. Thank you!!  Suzanne
Name = Wesley Martin Rosie and I stayed at Ipe Tombe recently and were extremely impressed by the warmth of the welcome from Pat and Reg. The place is very comfortable and relaxing and our hosts were top of the class. The banter with other guests was great and the garden and pool area were peaceful and invigorating. We can't wait to get back there for Reg's special continental eggs and, as they say in Ireland, a bit of craic.
Name = Trevor Davis Again Thank you to Pat and Reg, for always going that extra mile. Always accommodating and home from home. No restaurant can feed you like they feed on and care about on no matter what you request. AMAZING and a huge thank you till we stay again, Trevor Stayed September - Bowls SA
