Cute little pool. Nice big shower with great water pressure and stayed warm even after 1 person went first. Fan in... More

The B&B is about 1 km away from the centre of the village and just a little further from the "Canal area" at St Francis Bay. Inge made us feel most welcome throughout the stay, with good local advice, good breakfasts, and good service. The room is very well equipped and practical, and cleanliness was exceptional. The small pool is... More

Super room in a lovely house. Excellent facilities. Friendly welcome, and great breakfast. St Francis Bay is without doubt one of the prettiest places we have visited, and well worth a detour, if not a stay.

Inge pays a lot of attention to detail. We were a party of five and she learnt and remembered all our names. The rooms were very elegant, clean and spacious. The breakfast was first class and nothing was to much trouble. The pool was sea water and the temperature inviting,
