Great service. They go the extra mile! The view is great. a nice quiet place to rest specially after a busy day! The wifi strength could really get some work done, as its strength is not that strong. But overall, its good!

The place is good for business travell. It is well situated at the quiet part of the Bluff. It is easy to access through M7 and there is no high traffic volumes aroung the guest house. You can look at the Indian Ocean as much as you like. At night you can also hear the roaring waves of the ocean.

I can see why this place is only 3 stars. Bedding could have been cleaner, there was mens hair on my bed. The wifi stoped working the second night. There was a funny smell as well hanging around. The 3rd star is probably for the view.

Good day, We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay and we apologize for any inconvenience caused due to the unstable WiFi - Telkom has been experiencing difficulties. Unfortunately we were not aware of the issues as we would have liked to rectify the matter during your stay. Kindly let us know what unit you stayed in as we are not able to pick up your booking. We would like to look into the funny smell you are referring to.
