4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

The best little guesthouse is great value for money. It's an easy to find, central venue with comfortable rooms in an historic but excellently maintained building. The service is both personal and discrete. The time for breakfast is flexible to an early business schedule and the catering was sensitive to my need for a healthy start. I stayed five days and it will be my first choice for my next trip whether for business or with my wife.

This was our second visit to the guest house. (First time 2004). We had the lovely room with direct access to the pool. Very friendly owners and staff. Free Wi Fi was a bonus and provision of towels for the pool was unexpected at such a small establishment, but very welcome. We were made to feel 'at home'. The breakfasts were good and varied. Of the 6 guest houses we stayed in on our 'Garden Route' tour this year, this was the least expensive, even with the air-conditioning. Hence we feel it really is the BEST Little guest house.

Room Tip: Pool access room super

Good, friendly service, a really comfortable bed and a generally pleasant atmosphere. Surprisingly good at the price and worth a recommendation!

Friendly on arrival.
Room was horrible,most uncomfortable bed and pillows.
Had to wait to long for breakfast and when it arrived the bacon was cold and the white of the egg was runny.
A Businessman that was staying there for almost a month, said he has had the same breakfast for more than a month!!!
Safe parking is the only good thing I can say about this place.

We appreciate and value our customer reviews, good, bad or indifferent. It helps us to make any needed changes. In all our rooms we have a guest comment card for this very purpose as it is our sincere wish to make the stay of our guests an enjoyable experience. We apologize to this guest and hope that our future guests will let our friendly staff know of any dissatisfaction so we can take care of the situation immediately.

In retrospect, we have had many wonderful, very satisfied guests, who keep on returning to stay at the Best Little Guest House.
