For a single person, I paid R350 (US$38) for a luxury room inc. breakfast. Wow! I don't understand how they can provide such a perfect place for such a low price! The room has so many 5 star touches: chocolate on the pillow, welcome brandy, super cozy bathrobes, slippers, a specially designed hair towel...
The bathroom was magnificent.... huge shower with the water control well outside the spray, so you don't freeze while you adjust the flow! so simple yet so perfect!
the whole room and bathroom look like they were decorated by a professional from one of those reno shows. So amazing.
Parking is behind a modern secure gate.
Wifi was very weak in my 2nd story room, but had good strength down by the pool.
Breakfast was beautifully presented in oversized baskets, with a heat pad to keep the eggs warm. It was probably the best scrambled eggs i've ever had... fluffy, not even slightly runny or hard.
there were dogs in the neighbourhood barking at night, so bring ear plugs if you're a light sleeper. Nothing the owners can do about this.
The owners had a cat, and I am quite allergic, but they must be very diligent about keeping him out the guest rooms, as I didn't notice even a slight reaction.
My biggest disappointment was that I only stayed here for one night!
