We spent a night at this beautiful b&b. Wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you Izzy and Hannes for your unbelievable hospitality and for sharing your little piece of paradise with us. Once again we had an amazing stay. Breakfast was beautiful, with a fruit platter to start, and a full cooked breakfast to follow. The rooms are spacious... More

I stayed here with my elderly mother for 4 nights. We arrived in pouring rain, and before we could get out of the car, Issy and Hannes were there with umbrellas and all. During our stay, they did everything to make sure we had all we needed. Perfect room, lovely garden and pool, and delicious breakfast. Highly recommended!

Ambience Inn gives you everything you need to charge your own batteries. If it is at the end of the working day, or for a break away, you will experience comfort and peace. The garden is pure joy, the service and breakfast excellent. A well managed guest house, a good choice!

We were the only guests that night and we felt like if we were staying at some friend´s place. Our guests were extremely nice, they explained us a lot of things and answered all our questions....

It is a small B&B with only 6 double rooms opening onto a veranda facing onto a beautiful garden of almost botanical standards. My... More

We spent two nights here to explore the panoramic route. The hosts are wonderful; very nice and good tips for the area. The garden is beautiful. Their two dogs are very friendly. The only minus was the room. The room was ok, but it needed a good cleanup.
