We stayed here during the Bastille Festival and it suited our needs perfectly. It is a short walk to the Wine tent. The full breakfast was nice and convenient. The rooms were not anything extravagant but were sweet and comfortable.

Barry and Annette are the perfect hosts. We have been twice and already planning a third visit. The rooms (both in and out) are fabulous. Their local knowledge is brilliant, their hospitality cannot be faltered and the additional furry friends we made are amazing. We will never stay any where else when we are in this part of the Western... More

Our stay at The Garden House was a highlight of our trip to South Africa. As many have said, the location is gorgeous and the accommodations are beyond comfortable- spacious room, luxurious bathroom, comfy bed and delicious breakfast. Barry and Annette were warm and welcoming, immensely knowledgeable about the area and helpful throughout our stay. Benji, Lizzie, Marmaduke, and the... More

A truly wonderful place. Annette & Barry are the most hospitable hosts who end up being dear friends. Everything is to the highest quality and standard. Tastefully decorated. The garden is charming and the pool enticing. Perfectly located with private parking. Friendly and helpful staff. The animals are full of character, friendly and welcoming. I cant wait to return.

Annette and Barry were fantastic hosts and made us feel like we were a part of their family. Our plans for the arrival date changed and we arrived a day earlier than expected. They welcomed us with open arms. Staying with Annette and Barry was one of the best travel experiences we've ever had. We cannot recommend a stay at... More

What can we say that hasn't already been said? Beautiful house, lovely accommodation, great location, fabulous breakfast, we could go on but what really makes the Garden House special is the wonderful hospitality you receive from Annette and Barry (and of course Benjy, Lizzie and Marmaduke) - we stayed for three nights and left feeling as though we were saying...

And most importantly Annette and Barry were extremely friendly and helpful! Despite the... More
