What a welcome from Lollie,no need to introduce ourselves he already knew who was arriving, real genuine South African hospitality. Excellent rooms spotlessly kept. The relaxed and comfortable suroundings allowed us to unwind and relax after the 450km trip. Even better the offer to have dinner. A bonus, the sunset was absolutely beautifull.

We just loved our too short stay here in this idyllic place. Perfect in every respect. Beautiful rural location. Wonderful hosts, resident pets for those missing their own, fabulous evening meal on the evening of our arrival. Wonderful 😀

We spent a night at this lovely house. The rooms were amazing and the atmosphere outside was so peaceful. The owners have given this place a very personalized touch. It's a pity we only got to spend one night.

Unfortunately we only spent 1 night with this lovely family. The rooms and breakfast/dinner area are decorated as fits the surroundings, which are perfect. There is a swimming pool where you can relax. Perfect location for who is looking for a relaxed stay and with very good service. Next time we will definitely stay for the dinner.

Beautiful place - nice and clean rooms, wonderful garden, quiet location on a secondary road, great hospitality, very good breakfast. Meals are served in a traditional dining room, on beautiful dishes. We also had dinner which was very good. We tried - and enjoyed - ostrich meat, probably from the farm across the street. Overall - great experience. For those...
