Everything was perfect - secure, friendly, chic, clean. We loved it. Nicola the hostess was extremely helpful and made dinner reservations for us at a beautiful restaurant 2 minutes walk away. The garden was beautiful and the interior deco very tasteful.

We had a very pleasant stay in this guest house. It is in the centre of town right next to one of the best restaurants. The room was huge and nicely designed with some interesting artefacts. At the back is a lovely garden that the owners have recently completely redesigned. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed over for 3 nights, and we could not have been happier. We felt so welcome from the moment we arrived. After we had dinner in town, great conversations took place on the stoep over a quick night cap since we were the only guests at the end of season. Although it was end of high season, we were...

I actually am finding this hard to write as we are easily pleased when travelling. However, when even simple needs are not met, I guess I feel I want to say something and I hope this review is read by the owners as it matters. This BnB is on the main road though traffic noise is not a problem. It... More

We much enjoyed our stay. The room was spotless and big with a very nice bathroom. The location was good and the hosts gave us lots of advice on restaurants and excursions to be made which was very useful. Lovely little garden and pool and breakfast was good.

Nice B&B in an old house recently renewed : very nicely furnished, beautiful garden with a swimming pool. The owners are very helpful and gave good informations on nice restaurant. Just one negative point: the quality of some of the products given for breakfast should be improved e.g. marmelade and honey where industrial and not local products.

The owner ( a self-described german ) was so arrogant and full of himself, that he couldn't even murmur an apology for the damage to our rental car. All he did was supply his insurance agent's details, and ask that the matter be handled between Avis and his insurance agent. WARNING - car rentals simply don't work like that! In... More

We found the owner Max friendly and his wife polite. The accomodation was tastfully decorated in keeping with the old property, clean and comfortable but not warm enough for the time of year. The breakfast was stated as being a full english breakfast but fell well short of that. One scrambled egg and 2 tiny pieces of fatty streaky bacon... More
