A super B & B not far from the centre of town in a quiet leafy suburb which was easy to find. The service was excellent, the staff friendly and sincere and the room was clean comfortable and beautifully decorated. The bathroom was very modern with two basins. It had an outside door into a stunning tropical garden. Very well... More

Very arty and beautiful place. The workers and owner are very nice and courteous. The rooms are very beautiful, big and clean. The breakfast is tasty and a good portion. The guesthouse is placed in a beautiful garden. Thank you for these two nights and the help to get us to Swaziland.

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!

Your manager and staff were extremely hospitable. loved your rooms just needed more toilet soap though. In a beautiful quiet area. It's a pity you don't have a variety of restuarants. The town seems to "close" by eight at night. Overall though we had n awesome experience. Definitely will come back

When we asked for a refund they said that they had to retain an amount to cover the commission they have to pay to the advertising agent which total rubbish. As everybody knows commissions are not the customer / visitor / guest problem. to our... More

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
