We had an amazing break, thank you very much for the great hospitality! The rooms are great, each with it's own private balcony. 1 Suggestion would be a separate DSTV channel? It was a bit frustrating to watch when it was paused and changed the whole time. Otherwise, perfect! :)

Beautiful location, garden and layout of property. Its great that all rooms have garden views and that there is a small communal kitchen although it's a b&b. Love the privacy and will definitely stay there again. More variety could be added to the breakfast menu though.

The beds were so comfortable, the best this trip! We enjoyed a lovely breakfast on the terrace overlooking the garden and then we were on our way. The restaurant we were recommended in Knysna was perfect thank you.

Nice establishment. Bedroom nice but not overly big. Rooms all have a lovely terrace space. Well maintained garden and pool. Breakfast perfectly satisfactory. Not as friendly as some places we stayed.
