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.

I stayed overnight on a business trip on the night of the 12th November 2014. The accommodation was absolutely beautiful - clean; beautifully furnished, lovely breakfast. The views from the home are extraordinary. The bedroom is exquisitely furnished. The house caretaker was very friendly and caring.
