This accommodation is perfectly located, the house is lovely, rooms very clean and comfortable. The garden is absolutely wonderful and naturally large swimming pool. The view from living room is marvellous overlooking garden and nearby mountains. Breakfast perfect, you may even ask for specials like home baked bread, bacon butty etc. Strongly recommended

We stayed at Alba house during our first visit to South Africa in 2014 and it was excellent. We decided to return this year, 2015, and we still love it. Nice, big and clean room, great breakfast, friendly staff and Ivana is very helpful with things to do and places to visit. We'll absolutelly return during our next vacation.

Very nice and quiet house with fantastic views. The guest house is very well located in a quiet part of the city, yet not far from the main street and a couple of excellent restaurants. Ivana - our host - was very helpful and nice. We enjoyed our stay so much ! Thank a lot.
