The bustling town of Modimolle boasts several historic venues and monuments for those who enjoy South Africa’s rich heritage. Here, in the heart of the Bushveld, is Modimolle Funky Stay, just four kilometres outside the town on the popular R101. Modimolle Funky Stay offers no-frills, affordable overnight accommodation in colourful rooms within A-frame buildings. With its quirky South African ambience, this small hotel in its Bushveld setting is a convenient base for budget-conscious business travellers, families and school or church groups.
Modimolle Funky Stay not only offers trouble-free access to the N1 and Modimolle, but is also close to numerous outdoor and adventure activities in the area. Its location – 12 km from the N1 highway – offers easy access to Pretoria, Polokwane and OR Tambo International Airport. While situated close to the R101 to provide convenient access, a row of tall trees lining the road dampens out traffic noise, so that guests can relax overnight to the sounds of the bush.
Driving up a short gravel road to the hotel, grazing cattle and beautiful trees provide a rural ambience. Modimolle Funky Stay comprises three A-frame buildings that house its 14 rooms. These overlook a tranquil pond set in the Bushveld surrounding the hotel. The hotel has 14 comfortable bedrooms situated in three A-frame buildings. Decorated in cheerful chic style with rustic screed flooring, colourful South African furnishings and decor liven up the interiors. Access to the bedrooms are from the side hallway that runs along the rooms leading from the communal unit entry. Most of the rooms have twin beds that can be pushed together to create double beds. There are also three single rooms. Each room has its own en-suite bathroom with modern shower, washbasin and toilet. Vibrant colours are cheekily displayed in the wall paintings, scatter cushions, ottoman and throws that adorn the furniture.
Modimolle Funky Stay’s hotel rooms are all non-smoking. They feature tasteful wooden furniture, a desk as well as ample cupboard space with an open closet that fits into the rustic space of the A-frame architecture. Additional homely touches enhance the basic features of each room to ensure a comfortable overnight stay. These include a coffee/tea maker and flat screen television with select satellite channels.
