“Over-rated.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

Its ok, but I don't see what all the fuss is about. We went there for a function but it didn't seem all that special to me.

“Excellent Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

We went on a guided tour which cost just $8 for seniors. The house is stunning and the ceiling of the main dining room is original and quite breathtaking. The guide talked non stop for an hour and was a wealth of information. Some of the furniture and silverware is unusual and very fine examples of the period.

“Good visit to an old colonial house”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

I was visiting from England, so have seen lots of historic houses and found this colonial style residence really interesting. I was intrigued that the family slept on the ground floor (cooler in the heat of the SA summer) but put their guests in the heat upstairs! In those days before air conditioning they even had a basement sitting room for very hot days. The guide was knowledgeable and informative, overall a worthwhile visit to a grand city house.
