Very warm welcome. Our room was located in the wandering garden, very quiet, clean and spacious. Breakfast was superb with many local delicacies. Had a walk through the town in the evening and felt totally safe. Certainly would recommend.

We stayed here for two nights on a 2-week road trip along Route 62 and the Garden Route at the beginning of April. A lovely little guesthouse with just a few rooms set in a tropical garden. The Dutch owners are very friendly and welcoming and you really get the feeling you are their house guests. Our room was very... More

Very friendly reception by Mickie who bakes her own bread which you will enjoy when having your exquisite breakfast . When leaving Malherbe Joop might have a tip or two... More

The rooms are set around a pleasant garden at the rear of the property so our worries of noise from the main road were ill founded. The swimming pool was clean and well maintained. The room was of a good size and beautifully designed and prepared. Car parking was behind an electric gate and so secure. Breakfast was excellent (Joop... More

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.
