It was very comfortable, with welcoming and obliging hosts. Had a lovely room with my own balcony. Very spacious and very well presented. I found the location well suited to the area I needed to be in for work.

We found this place very last minute, after a problem with a different location. They had a last minute cancellation that came available and we were VERY grateful for the room. Sadly it was two short twins, but the room was tidy. Can't comment much on the facilities but the pool and garden looked lovely and breakfast was good

Gorgeous gardens and pool area, and an excellent breakfast. The bathroom was very small, and the shower was tiny, but we only stayed one night so it wasn't really an issue. Overall very good value for money.

This was by far the prettiest place we stayed at in South Africa. The manager is super and we felt completely relaxed and at home. At the beginning of April the swimming pool was a bit cold, but maybe I am just a cissy!
