The hotel is an excellent base to explore the Cape peninsular and we stayed three nights in the garden room which has a wonderful view of the mountains and the bay which is a short walk away. The owners Bryan and Andrew are kind and attentive, instantly producing suntan lotion and Paracetamol which I'd forgotten. We had an excellent meal,... More

Not a place to be recommended, the owner was very cold to us on arrival, gave us a room more expensive that the one we booked, DSTV and Wi Fi were not working, and the hot water in the shower came after 10min of running, No view from the room, only from the garden.
