Robyn and Keef made us most welcome at their bed and breakfast accommodation. Their home cooking was delicious. They accommodated my allergy for cats by ensuring that theirs did not come anywhere near me. They were most helpful in assisting us to plan our day in the local area. We only wish we could have stayed longer.

When we arrived we were met by Kees and Robyn who made us feel so welcome. The property has been restored to make the best use of everything there, including the beautiful garden. The breakfasts are amazing . We found the whole experience just wonderful.

We arrived around dinnertime and left early the next morning, but in that short period of time, Robyn and Kees provided exactly what we needed: advice on our travels the next day, free use of WiFi and a phone, a warm and cozy bed, and a first-class breakfast. We wish we could have stayed longer at their lovely B&B and... More

We stayed at Ambleside for three nights and everything was just perfect. The room was beautiful, breakfasts were absolutely first class and Robyn and Kees are friendly and welcoming hosts always ready to provide help and advice. We definitely recommend it! Matteo & Malgorzata, Perth, Australia.

If the personal touch is the secret of a successful bed and breakfast, then Robyn and Cornelis are assured of many more happy customers. Comfortable beds and an excellent breakfast help too. The house is a single storey property just off the main road, about ten minutes drive from the central area and five minutes from the airport, with a... More

Robyn & Kees are very friendly and good hosts. They take personal care of their guests and make your stay feel very warm and comfortable. Their B&B is clean, gardens are great with a nice sitting area, wifi's strong and fast, rooms are spacious enough and breakfast is awesome. This is a great place with great people. Definitely a recommendation!
