We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of a wonderful 3 week road trip in the Western and Eastern Cape. It is run by a Scandinavian couple (who we did not meet) and is beautifully designed and decorated in great taste. Furniture and furnishings are excellent, as is the breakfast (though it starts very late at 8.45am). It is spotlessly clean. However there are flaws which no amount of style can compensate for. The primary one is a lack of space both in the size of the room and particularly storage. There is no air conditioning (though there is a fan) and as all rooms have one wall of glass facing the public areas, curtains have to be drawn most of the time. We enjoyed our stay but the lack of space would mean we wouldn't be happy for more than a couple of nights. Location is very good, a couple of minutes walk to the cliff path for whale watching in season and 10 minutes to town along safe streets. The free wifi is very good and fast. A stylish choice but not perfect.
