Everything was perfect. The house beautiful, lovely surroundings, good beds, clean and nice hostess. A street with Jacaranda's full of purple flowers. The hostess gave us nice advice what to see. The neighbourhood is nice and the distance from the airpot not to far. We arrived late in the evening, so this was better for us.

Steeped in history, Northcliff was the wedding gift to Helen Suzman, a consistently anti-apartheid voice and the only woman in Parliament for many a decade.

What a dream of a B&B! Friendly couple (and their dogs!) welcome you into their home. And a lovely home it is. The rooms, the garden, the house itself. Superb. If you are looking for a private spot instead of a big hotel, this is where you want to stay.
