It's been almost five years since we were there, but it still remains one of the nicest B&B stays in our travels.

OMG. I have seen many guesthouses (pensions like we call it) but this one beats them all. I must have been one of the first that stayed in the new place. Perfect beds, large rooms, wifi, the whole building is full of design stuff. Fantastic breakfast and free smoothies and brilliant wine (a local find, Stanford Hills - worth checking...

Clean rooms, great location to all the Die Waterkant restaurants and bars. They could do with a little more attention to service.

I stayed in a previous guest house which was supposedly one star higher, but I found 17 on Loader to be very modern, clean and with very good facilities. It is also located in a great location with commanding views from the roof top terrace. I received a pre-arrival email from Ben the live in Manager which was very professional...

I actually arrived sick at the guesthouse and we had booked room 17 C which doesn't have external windows and no air-conditioning. The room is very small and feels a little claustrophobic. The staff was very attentive and Benjamin tried his best to get us another room as we had booked for four nights. He actually managed to get us...
