Perfect Pit Stop - Great Hosts!Posted Sep 24, 2013
Pros: Cozy bar and dining room; warm hospitality; willingness to assist with next day's itinerary. The room was comfortable and had everything we needed.
Cons: Not a thing. Great hosts!
Location: The Sudwala Caves (on the way to Hazyview) are a must see.
Since we were arriving in Johannesburg in mid-afternoon, we were looking for an overnight B&B on our way to Kruger. The Shamrock Arms was the perfect pit stop. We loved this place; it was exactly what we had in mind for our B&B driving tour of South Africa. We got in late but after a quick and friendly welcome, we had a drink at the bar and then dinner in the cozy dining room. Dinner was delicious but what made it truly special was the opportunity to mingle with the hosts and other guests after dinner and learn alot about South Africa from a variety of different perspectives. It was fun (the hot toddies helped the conversation along) and very educational. In the morning, we had a hearty Full English breakfast and got lots of help from our host as to where we should stop on our way to Hazyview. The advice was spot on and we had a very enjoyable day thanks to our host.
