We only stayed one night - January 1st - and when we arrived we found that Andreus had been thoughtful enough to book a table for us at a local restaurant - accurately assuming that we would want to go out for dinner. Apparently only 4 of the local restaurants were open and he didn't want to us to run the risk of not finding anywhere (not sure why they were all shut in such high season - but it's our first visit to South Africa - so maybe this is normal). His thoughtful actions really exceeded our expectations.
Our room was lovely and comfortable and the grounds offered plenty of opportunity to relax for a couple of hours. The only problem we had was that as my husband is well over 6ft tall, he cracked his head a couple of times on the door frame as he went in and out - the house was obviously build for shorter people.
Breakfast was lovely - we sat on the patio in the sunshine. The service was gracious, friendly and the cooked breakfast was delivered with a smile. We would have no hesitation in recommending this B&B.
