We stayed one night at this very well priced Greek-style guesthouse. The communal areas are lovely and the rooms are cute, clean and simple. They are also tiny. There isn't enough room to open up two suitcases simultaneously, or even one without tripping over it - and there is really no bathroom or "ensuite" to speak of, only a very tiny shower in the room itself and a very tiny room attached to the bedroom which just fits a toilet. The room was hot - there was no air conditioning, though there was a noisy fan.
Breakfast was just ok - we ordered eggs. We weren't offered, and nor did we see (though admittedly we also didn't ask for) a cold breakfast option.
Having said that, for one night it was a fabulous budget option. There is also a lovely pool which we didn't have time to use.

The building is the historic Good Hope Building, dating from 1929 and the theme is drawn from the Greek Isles. Owners Peter and Carol welcome you in true Greek style. Set in a side lane, off the main road, one can lose sight of the little town of Caledon, and imagine oneself in Mykonos or Santorini, the setting is so authentic. ... more less
