Family had a lovely albeit very short stay in the cottage. Our only hiccup was that the hot water ran out for our morning showers - despite this we would be happy to stay again. Location was great and service very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious!

After initial problem with heating system everything was fine. Very chilly for breakfast, hardly any heating on. Otherwise very good stay. It was sited very centrally in the town, with good views of the bridge. Also car parking was very good, safe and secure.

Pros - Great hosts who offered a welcoming drink and helpful information on things to see and do locally. - Lovely big clean room. Think there were 2 beds! - Central location, just 2 mins... More

Our room was beautifully furnished and decorated and very comfortable. The owners have clearly used their own wide travel experience and so there is outstanding attention to detail and also excellent local knowledge.

Phil and Linda are the best host and hostess you can wish. Phil helpt us with choosing the spots in the Sanparks and saved us a lot of money by getting the wildcart and the right B&Bs fot the rest of our trip. The rooms are very good and there is very much attention for the enviremont, like the garden.... More

TL;DR version = Pleasant accommodations. Good location. Great food. Fun owners. We were a rowdy group of five that continually put our accommodations and hosts to the test wherever we went in Africa. Phil and Linda did not disappoint. The rooms were nice - nothing extravagant, but clean and recently renovated with many noticeable nice touches. The breakfasts were some... More
