Everything the pictures promise and much more. It was lovely to be given a warm and friendly welcome by Peter, who was happy to advise us on local restaurants and activities as well... More

I have stayed at Phoenix Guesthouse several times and keep going back because it truly is the most welcoming and classy guesthouse I have ever stayed in!

Hi Chantel, Thanks you of your ' amazing' review ;-), especially considering the weather while you were here!! You really did experience the full range in the three days…. gorgeous sun/ wind and lashing rain and blanketed in thick fog one morning… really bizarre weather for those days, but it would seem that, despite that you enjoyed your time here...

Smug? Why? Because I found the White Room in Phoenix Guest House for Valentines Day and my lovely wife was very Happy (note the capital H!).

Well it's going to be difficult not to be too gushy about The Phoenix Guest House, and it's delightful owner Peter. We came across it by chance after having checked in and straight out of a guesthouse nearby which lets say was not up to scratch as part of our honeymoon experience. Driving round Wilderness and up its hills and... More

At first we did not knew what to expect from the Phoenix guesthouse. And since we have been to several other 4 star guesthouses it totally surprised us. The whole experience, as I call it, is a combination of the luxury and service of a 5 star hotel with the privacy of renting your own villa. The location is just... More
