The appearance and loving restoration of this house is stunning. Its next to the sea, with a small fence in between (Mauritians say the sea near Port Louis is too dirty for swimming!). The food is really delicious and interesting, I could not resist eating breakfast and dinners. The room was large and comfortable with a 4-poster bed. The family... More

This villa has a great deal to recommend it, but is let down by uneven management. The location is good, being near Port Louis but still far enough away to escape. There are a small number of rooms, and the rooms are really well put together. The grounds and villa are really well designed and maintained. There is a restaurant... More

Very nice and attractive location for Business People who are not targeting one of the big anonymous world wide acting Hotel chains. I lived literally together with the owner family, very nice and friendly people, who introduced me to the island. Food is delicious, home made and always fresh. They offer local food as well as French cuisine. The rooms... More

We chose to stay here for three nights, as part of visiting all parts of the island over two weeks, because the hotels in Port Louis had mixed reviews. It was a good choice small and friendly guest house that has been sensitively and creatively restored, incorporating interesting cuturally-diverse art and decor, that lives up to its ratings. We were... More

Given how little choice there is for business travellers in Port Louis, this quaint hotel is a welcome addition to the scene. It is an essentially a B&B and that is not a knock on the place at all. The owners provide very personal service and I enjoyed chatting with them. When I called to get driving directions they were... More

If you need to stay near Port Louis, the capital of Mauritius, but need to escape at the end of the day, this is the best place that you can ask for. Idyllic surroundings, peaceful, a real homely atmosphere and great food; what more can you ask for.

The setting for this hotel is absolutely idyllic; the staff are lovely; the atmosphere is informal but professional; the food is good and generous; the rooms are large and comfortable and very clean. There is even a kettle provided in the room. Your meals are served in a pretty little gazebo in the garden, watching local fishermen wading out with... More

we visited this hotel in january, villa is very beautiful, like on pictures. It was perfect service, very clean and comfortable room, tasty breakfast, very polite staff. But it isn't good location for rest: all beaches very far and there isn't some shops or bars, restaurants etc.

This is absolutely not the hotel for business travelers "with the quality of service of a luxurious hotel" that it claims to be. At best, this is a recently renovated familiy home in a nice setting, where you are welcomed by owners and staff in shorts and flip flops and share the living room with the kids' toys and the...
