4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Staff were very friendly and helpful, and the room we stayed in was very clean. The hotel is behind a locking gate and they have a night guard, so we felt very safe here. Breakfast in the morning was very tasty as well. If I were to be in East London overnight again, I would absolutely use this hotel.

Visited in low season.Nice clean place in a suburb from Knysnia. Very quiet. Good breakfast with everything you wish. An helpful lady advised us where to go. Nice shop near the restaurant, eye for details.

Overall service received was very good. Will certainly return again. Happy with quality of meals served. Would recommend that you add Kyknet, channel 144 to your available bouquet of DSTV channels. Very satisfied with the room and cleanliness. Enjoyed the view and I like the area where the guesthouse is situated.

I rented two rooms for the night before my wedding for myself and 3 bridesmaids. The rooms were quite big and newly renovated. The bathroom is huge with a gorgeous bath. There is a bar fridge filled with necessities if you require. The view is stunning as you can see the lake. The service at the front desk as well... More

Overall nice facilities. This was not the first time I stayed with you. Your breakfast service is the most depressing I have ever seen in the country. It is very slow to get served there but you seem to have numbers in the kitchen. You need to re look this.

I was exceedingly impressed with this stay. Rooms were large and comfortable. Loved the built-in kitchen and the personal touches like in-room filter coffee, biscuits, and the very affordable and substantial "honesty bar"! Breakfast was a treat! Fresh, made to order and, once again, small personal touches like homemade jams and of course the Nespresso machine! The location was great... More

Really good. Great size room. TV a little small for room size. I think a 40" or larger would've been better than a 32. Cupboards adequate but like all hotels the addition of a chest of drawers would be welcome. Room big enough to accommodate same. Breakfast excellent.
