Double Dutch was probably our best stop whilst travelling along the Garden Route. Kate and Nathalie are friendly hosts and make you feel more as if you are entering their home rather than a guest house. With lovely little touches, from a complimentary drink upon arrival to Nespresso facilities in the room, lovely breakfast, everything makes you feel completely relaxed....

From the cheerey welcome from Kate to the farewell gift when we left, this place is tops. Great room and all the amenities you could want, excellent breakfast and lovely pool and views. Kate and Natalie are naturals at this and nothing was too much; they organised every evening meal, that where fantastic, and the taxis. I would recommend this...

On the improve, I suggest that WiFi is a low hanging...

We were made so very welcome by Kate and Nathalie who own and run the Double Dutch B&B - it was a pleasure to stay in their lovely establishment.
