It is my 3rd time staying at Baruch and I will definitely come back again. The service is excellent, friendly and very professional. And the breakfast is tasty too. The guest house has a lovely character to is and it feels very homely. Perfect for stay here while on business.

A lovely peaceful, comfy, spacious and clean B&B with crisp linen and scrumptious breakfasts. The warm hospitality and caring, helpful spirit we experienced was a real blessing as my son recovered from his ACL op. The hospital is a short walk away which made it easy for me to visit him while he was still in Mediclinic hospital.

My partner and I stayed here for one night before heading to the airport. The team looked after us and the guest house was just what we needed. Even got a breakfast package as we left super early that morning! Such a shame that the room we stayed in only had a bath (no shower) which wasn't an issue for... More

Thank you very much for your review! We appreciate your input. It really matters to us what our guests like and dislike. If you ever come to visit us again, remember that the "Polkadot Room" is the only room without a shower. The remainder of rooms all have showers. Kind regards Natalie Scheepers More

Rosie and the team were very helpful. They helped me book safari and wine farm tours, and extended their hospitality even to friends that were not staying in their guesthouse. 100% recommended, nice and comfortable rooms too.

The Baruch Guest House is a nice guest house. Breakfast was delicious and we got a wine on the house. However, our room did not have a shower but only a bathtub, which was sort of weird. Furthermore, the pool was very small and not clean.

Thank you kindly for your review. The Polkadot Room is the only room at our little guest house that has a bath only. This is due to the fact that the architecture of the bathroom doesn't allow space (roof wise) for a shower. However this is clearly stated on our website as well as all the other websites on which...

Great service. Clean and neat place. Great for stay over when on business. Friendly staff. This is my second time staying there and will definitely go there again. Safe and secure parking and also good location. The pillows of the bed can be a bit more firm, but that is just my personal preference 👍

We stayed here for two nights. The rooms are nice. Breakfast is good. The only issue was transport because it was difficult to arrange, maybe due to the high season.
