Our Stay at your lodge was a pleasant one. The rooms were clean and had lots of light. It was easy to get in and out. Everyone we dealt with was friendly and professional. The self catering kitchen was well laid out, though we did not use and the place had all of the essentials.

We required a bnb for our final stop before leaving Cape Town. This place was perfect location wise to get to the airport and to Canal Walk (for dinner). The room was clean, wifi fast, fridge stocked, and breakfast delicious.

The house was nice and big enough for our purpose. Furnishing was nice and either new or in very good status. Nothing we needed was missing (also in kitchen). Staff was very friendly and ready to help. Breakfast was really luxurious.

Stayed here for two nights whilst visiting Cape Town. We were a party of seven and all four of our rooms were fantastic. Very spacious, with great facilities and the breakfast was lovely. Will definitely visit again.
