The location of this B&B is unbeatable and made the stay worthwhile. One of the closest places to Natures Valley with breathtaking views and stunning landscape. Also right in the middle of the main sights like Monkeyland, Storms River and Plett. The room very comfortable and large and we slept very well here.
However, there seems to be an office or store behind the partition wall and we could hear voices and noises through the wall on one day and I think it was the day they have the garden serviced. This made us whisper ourselves and tip toe around which was awkward for honeymooners who wish to relax.
The hosts are very friendly and welcoming, although I found it hard to have an intimate breakfast or depart from a 'brief' encounter as the host likes to talk and talk. My partner enjoyed the long stories and was happy to listen for hours but I found it very trying and inappropriate.
The hot breakfast was limited to the standard fry-up and when I explained I didnt eat meat and would like some french toast / eggy bread (standard fare in SA) I was told "not to complicate things for the host" (who is a chef) And then changed my order to beans on toast on day 1 and 3, and porridge on day 2. I just feel that for R900 a night and also in comparison with other places we stayed at for less/same value, there has to be a bigger variety on offer for breakfast. For me the least satisfying of all the breakfasts we had, where some were really scrumptious in places. On the other hand my husband loved his breakfast and the stay so it may not be a balanced view.
I think generally SA has become overpriced and for 90 euros in Ireland or Uk I definitely get better value for money ito breakfast but in SA it seems we pay for the sunshine and views here.
