We stayed in March and were immediately given an upgraded room with a balcony and beautiful view over immaculate gardens. The pool and breakfast area are lovely and the breakfast was superb. Everything possible was done to ensure comfort including back up in the event of power cuts in the area (not needed) and mosquito and insect spray. I would... More

We made a booking on booking.com for 2 adults. The manager Liz informed us that the rate is wrong and it should be R1005 per person. However she was rude, sighed and would not give me the opportunity to speak. According to her the rate for 2 nights should have been R4020 however upon checking 3 times it should have... More

Dear Sir/Madam, We are a very professionally run and ethical guest house – we have proof that in fact you cancelled your booking BEFORE you even spoke to our Manager, Liz; and therefore a same day cancellation does apply. This is normal practice in the industry. Liz has been with us for 3 years and her professionalism is evident in... More

Just siting on the balcony of our room and enjoying the view at night; morning or any other time was a very relaxing exercise. The rest of the premises from the gardens to the pool were very well taken care... More
