Imelda met us with a very warm welcome, cup of coffee and a freshly baked cake. After a long days traveling you don't get better than that. After being introduced to fellow guests things like where to eat we're taken care off by producing restaurant menu's and making the bookings for us. Had a comfortable nights sleep. A very nice...

We selected this guesthouse in Graaff Reinet after reading some of the comments on trip advisor. We were not disappointed. Imelda is a great hostess and very helpful. The place was very nice and clean. The bed and linens very nice. We did not stay for breakfast but it appears to be a good one too. Imelda had all kinds... More

My wife and I stayed over for one night. The service was excellent, hospitality abundant and staff was very helpful, even advising on places to visit in Graaff-Reinet. We would definitely recommend Beau & I, even for longer stays!

Ismelda is a very friendly, elderly host. Upon arrival we got a cup of tea and chololate cake. Her caring nature, her home-made breakfast and the atmosphere at the B&B made us feel as if we were at our own grannies. But, if you're in your thirties like us, it also felt a bit out of place. So, if we... More

Our family stayed over for 1 night to break a long road trip. The rooms were clean, pleasant and well equipped. Imelda was very attentive and helpful. Breakfast was good, although my 2 strapping lads had her back in the kitchen cooking more!

We only stayed one night here and wished we had been able to stay longer. It is an excellent B & B; the rooms are spacious and comfortable and the family delightful. We were very well looked after and the breakfast was one of the best we had on holiday. The location is good too as you are in easy... More

We had a really lovely experience here. Beau and Imelde went the extra mile for us and made us feel like we were visiting an old friend. The house is a combination of burlesque boudoir and Pristine grandmother's antique home. There are pictures on the walls of their 13 children so you can imagine how well practiced they are at...

Immediately upon arrival, Imelda and Beau welcomed us with tea and home made cake on their lovely verandah. They were the perfect hosts with interest in our travels and plenty of suggestions for what to see and do in and around this delightful historic town - one of the top area attraction is the Valley of Desolation: it is anything...

I recently took my 83-year-old mother on a road trip to Cape Town and we overnighted in beautiful Graaf-Reinet, hosted by Imelda and Beau in their delightfully homely and beautifully appointed four roomed B&B - home away from home, only with more frills! Wonderful, caring hosts, thoughtful touches, sparkling bathrooms and homely, if not luxurious, rooms. Coffee and tea in... More

Imelda and Beau make you feel home away from home. Upon arrival they offer you a drink with homemade cake. They also do everything to help you in feeling comfortable. Beau arranged even a visit to 2 Cape-Dutch houses to see the interior. Many thanks to make our stay very nice.
