Excellent accommodation,the B&B is on the river bend. We did not catch the boat, but we say the faces of those who had been out on it, they seemed to have had fun. The B&B boat leaves at about 4:30pm be sure to catch it. The view is wonderful. Such a warm welcome, tranquil and wonderful breakfast. Its a must...

as returning customer we found it first a bit disappointing not to find Sandra and Brian, but Kevin and Ursula did everything to make us comfortable. They proved to be a worthy replacement and excellent hosts. And of course we will be back next year, DV. Ted & Joop Servaas.

The house is perfectly positioned on the beautiful canals of St Francis Bay! We were warmly welcomed by Ursula - with a much needed drink! Our room was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed plus a lovely view of the canal! The breakfasts are yummy! An absolute must is the canal cruise hosted by Captain Kevin who entertained us...

Great location right on the canal with their own private boat that can be rented for sunset cruises. Very friendly people with lots of knowledge of the local history. Close to restaurants and town centre.

An interesting cruise round the canals with our skipper Kevin. Very knowledgable and great fun. Was just us and cruised for over an hour. Kevin then walked us to our restaurant. A drink onboard too. Very reasonable price.

We stayed here for 2 nights and found the room, beds and general facilities to a high standard. We had a ground floor room overlooking the canal. Breakfast was individually cooked by Ursula and very tasty, although the 7-9 am slot may be a little early for some travellers. Kevin is an enthusiastic host and always ready to offer assistance....
