Excellent B&B for our family and friend trip to South Africa. We stayed in an adjoining family room. Breakfast was excellent with custom order as well as amazing fruit, meat and cereal buffet. Room was clean and extremely comfortable.

A great stay after a long flight and a quiet location. Breakfasts were excellent and really set you up for the day. You need to hire a car to get around though, as with most places in Joburg these days.

In fact, I think it offers the widest variety of teas, condiments and breakfast options I've come across at a B&B. The friendly staff are even willing to pack a...

We would recommend one of the larger family units - 2 rooms with a common foyer.

Rooms 1&2 or 28A & 28B. The larger room can accommodate an extra bed and a cot.

Both the above units (2 rooms combined) are > 50 Sq m. Both family units have full kitchen and a bath in one room - all rooms are en-suite with a bathroom & shower.

Rooms 28A & B have a higher level of privacy and lead directly onto a lawn.More suitable for small children

Kind regards, Gerard (owner)
