Breakfast on day one was average with excellent service but after that the standard dropped each day with many irtems not available and the staff less caring than... More

Fynbos Villa Guest House is quaint and charming. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is very good and the kitchen staff were friendly and helpful. The reception staff were unfriendly and could have provided a more welcoming and service orientated atmosphere. An expensive blouse was stolen out of my laundry. I must assume it was staff who had access... More

This guest house is beautiful and they've thought of everything! The bedroom we had had a little porch, which was great. The bathroom was large too. Although there were tea and coffee making facilities in the room, which was great, it was also in a house where we had full use of a kitchen (for self catering), which was very... More

The three of us stayed at the family cottage. The beds were very nice. We had a large bathroom. This guesthouse is located central and you can walk from here to all kinds of nice places. The breakfast was nice, although we missed the fresh fruits with it. The staff is very friendly and helpful!!!

We stayed here for three nights with friends. The villa is situated in a quiet street, a 20 minute flat walk into town. We had a large double quiet room at the front of the villa. Our friends had a room outside the house in an extension above the garage. There was a small swimming pool in a sheltered spot... More
