The place was very nice and we would have liked to stay longer. The hosts were available and nice to talk with, giving us some tips for our trip. In the morning we had breakfast in front of the swimming pool, amazing with warm weather!

Thank you for taking the time to review. It was lovely hosting you! We had such lovely guests staying in December, relaxed and enjoying the warm weather, the garden and pool area. We are glad we could play a part in making your break a pleasant one! Kind Regards Sandra

When we arrived, the property looked small and unimposing from the road, but once inside we were pleasantly surprised by the well kept and well laid out rooms, pool & braai area.The bed was comfortable and everything nice & clean. Lee & Sandra were very open & friendly and advised us well on shopping & restaurants. Lee's breakfast was great!

I stayed here while on business and was initially a little sceptical driving through the light industrial, retail area around 5th Ave but this was soon dispelled when I found the guesthouse. Room was modern, stylish, clean and well appointed with great bed and quality linen. Parking off road which was important for me. Perhaps the area might get noisy...

Hi Garth, thanks for the positive and constructive comments...yes the open plan rooms are not everyone's cup of tea, so we do offer it as an option...the other rooms have doors and privacy when required. We normally only offer that room to singles and young couples....hope to see you again in the near future. Lee and Sandi

We were very happy with our accomodation. The breakfasr was very nice the only thing that bugged me was that i was under the impression as advertised that the money for that was included in the price that we booked but then had to pay extra for that. Thanks again for our lovely stay and your hospitality

Thank you for taking the time to review. Apologies that the breakfast charge was not clear. There is the option to book room only, or room plus breakfast. We offer the choice so that we are not overcharging those that have to leave early for the airport. Noted however, and I will be more informative in the future in order...

Certainly the location of this guest house is convenient to the airport especially if you have late or early flights. Thankfully not too many flights in and out of this regional airport or it could be noisy.
