Thatchwood have lovely friendly staff, great rooms and nice breakfast. The rooms are large and the bed is comfortable. The water pressure isn't great and you do hear the road, which is quite busy. Overall would recommend staying here.

Thank you Harrie to you and your team for a great stay in St Francis Bay. We just had the one night, but I wish it had been 2. The little map of places to go and see as well as the restaurant recommendation was highly appreciated and your breakfast cheese selection was too lekker for words :).

The cussions were old and had no extra cussioncover - we didn`t use them. we preferred lying on our folded pullovers. The room was old and the bathroom too. we loved the garden and the breakfast was perfect - it was lovely to sit outside for breakfast.
