We have just stayed at this guest house and it was really wonderful. Friendly owners made reservations for us. Rooms are large and very nice. All amenities required are there. Private patio near the pool. We enjoyed lounging after a long drive. Breakfast was really good and nicely presented. Fresh fruit, cereals etc, platter of local cheese/meat, homemade bread and...

Stayed here last month on our way through to Knysna and had a very comfortable stay. Our hosts were very welcoming and our room was well equipped and had everything we could need including a torch to see our way back from the restaurant they recommended. Sat by the pool on our arrival, and in our little courtyard after our... More

We had an excellent stay in this guesthouse. The rooms are large, modern, comfortable and clean. A mini bar, sat TV and wifi are some of the nice extras. The garden is marvelous. The welcome by the Dutch hosts was warm. They prepared an excellent breakfast with fresh products. The location along long street is very convenient. Parking is available... More

Stayed 3 nights in deluxe garden room. Spacious room, very large bathroom. Unfortunately no wardrobe and very little hanging space. Comfortable beds, outside sitting area was ideal. Quaint semi tropical garden with little sitting areas. Breakfast was top quality and as a previous reviewer suggested, very imaginatively presented (best scrambled eggs in SA).

This guesthouse is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights there. We stayed in the room with the pool view, and were so surprised when we walked into such a stunning spacious room. Mickey serves up a mean breakfast in the morning, the best we had in SA.

This is a lovely guesthouse, full of character & charm. We stayed for two nights & could easily have stayed longer. Our room was spacious & immaculate, the setting very peaceful as it looked out on the attractive, sub tropical gardens & pool area. There were reasonably-priced wines & other refreshments available from the honesty bar fridge, effective air conditioning/heating... More

This guesthouse is on the main road through Montagu but don't be put off by that as it has been designed to give peace and quiet and seclusion at the back of the property which is like a secret garden with a nice pool. The rooms have separate entrances and are of a good size and the whole place is... More

We stayed for 2 nights but we could easily have stayed longer. Very peaceful place and room next to pool made all the difference. Micky and Joop were great hosts and the breakfast really something different and enjoyable. Spacious room with all you needed..

We stayed here for just 1 night on our way to Knysna. I wished we could have stayed a little longer. We stayed in a garden room and it was lovely and full of character. Nice pool area with shade if you need it and a very pleasant mature garden area, again with shade should you want it. The owners... More
