Impersonal & 'not our fault' - we found a lack of personality & in-genuine attitude from staff & owner alike; when our rooms water supply failed - no hot water - Eskom was blamed; really, i hate been taken for an idiot. Will not stay there again, and so thankfully will never be an 'insider' guest.

I've known about this guesthouse since it opened and finally had the opportunity to spend a night there. What a treat. Claire and Roula are lovely hosts and the rest of the staff are pleasant. The rooms are lovely, the bathrooms on the lower level only have showers, not sure about the sea facing rooms. The guesthouse is spotless with... More

Have stayed here several times in the last few months which is the best recommendation. Service is spot on, friendly and unintrusive but always ready to help. Was given a lift to the bus halt to buy a ticket. Facilities are good, bedroom large, well appointed, comfortable bed and the bathroom also decent size, clean and with a good shower.... More

Thanks so much for your review. Our guests best experience is important to us. I do however feel that what other guests do at our establishment is out of our hands, especially late at night when we are not around to assist you. We do not offer a 24 hour service.

We normally stay at hotels on our travels. From time-to-time we opt for staying in a guest house for a more personal experience. The location is great. It is walking distance to the beach.
