Affordable, yet upmarket, B&B accommodation in Glentana, halfway between Mossel Bay and George on the coast. Accommodation Awards Winner for best Guest House, 3 consecutive years. Explore the Garden Route, More go on a game drive to a private Game Reserve nearby, visit the Cango Caves and Ostrich farms in Oudtshoorn or just relax on 8 km of pristine sandy beaches. Easy distance to Wilderness and Knysna. 10 Km from George airport. Safe, quiet and out of town. Less
