I slept over 2 nights for working purposes. I was a bit dissapointed. It is not 4star quality. More 3star ont the max. Very basic. Old furniture and old look. If you want something modern, pass this one. However everything was clean and the breakfast was moderate. I will not come back again.

Stunning guest house! The bedrooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast was awesome and the staff were friendly and helpful! There is a beautiful garden and a cozy quaint pub with a 60 year old snooker table! We will definitely return!

I booked this accommodation using one of the South African websites which rated this as 4-star. We had already stayed in a number of 4-star B&Bs on our travels in South Africa and this definitely didn't make the grade. In fact many 3-stars were much better. The best thing about it was that it was easy to find being well... More
